Florida officials should ignore the racist DOJ, return the law abiding citizen his gun and dispose of the evidence of the trial.

After he ends up owning NBC (for editing the 911 call) and the prosecutor (for calling him a murderer after acquittal) he could go after the DOJ in a Fifth Amendment takings case.

The DOJ doesn’t have his gun, so they can’t keep it or return it. They can only try to make Florida do what Holder wants.

Somebody needs to ask Mr. Holder if Trayvon Martin had a civil right to sucker-punch George Zimmerman in the nose.

I suspect he would unabashedly answer in the affirmative.

If only the assholes treated Al Quada half as bad as this, the world would be a lot safer. They kissed Jhokar’s ass after he bombed innocent women and children but treat Zimmerman like public enemy #1 after he was acquitted by a jury.

It’s plainly stated and simple, Eric Holder and Barry Sotero are both racist pieces of sh#t grasping at straws to make their pitiful existence relevant. Here’s a little hint . . . your relevancy is not worth a fart in a windstorm.

Florida should tell Eric WithHolder that they ‘lost’ Zimmerman’s gun because they were unable to track it (Fast & Furious).

The gun’s all fine and dandy - Zimmerman can only get a new one.

The question is, was a similar order given to Martin’s hometown police force? The one that has custody of the allegedly burgled items found in his backpack.

Unlike the gun (which is just adding insult to injury), those a really FRIKKING BIG DEAL. Because if the rightful owner (still don’t know whether she’s been notified, right) tries to identify and claim them, suddenly there’s a nice big juicy piece of evidence supporting the notion that Martin really was casing Zimmerman’s neighborhood in the 45 minutes it took for him to walk the .8 miles from the 7-11 to the house he was staying in.

If Martin had survived the fight he instigated, he could of and should of been charged with attempted murder.

Outlandish.

Holder is an enemy of our Nation.

We should all chip in and buy Zimmerman a gun if they do this.

Let’s see if Gov. Scott, who started this mess, will step up for the rule of law.

I have to take time to mention that because, in my opinion, not only in Mississippi and Alabama, but right here in New York City, you and I can best learn how to get real freedom by studying how Kenyatta brought it to his people in Kenya, and how Odinga helped him, and the excellent job that was done by the Mau Mau freedom fighters. In fact, that’s what we need in Mississippi. In Mississippi we need a Mau Mau. In Alabama we need a Mau Mau. In Georgia we need a Mau Mau. Right here in Harlem, in New York City, we need a Mau Mau.

I care much less about the specific gun, I am concerned about his concealed carry permit. Has this been restored?

George may need it in the future. He can probably get another gun—many would contribute toward the cost.

If the governor of Florida wants to save the taxpayers of the state some money defending a against a law suit he will lose, he should override the racists sitting in as president and attorney general.

Meanwhile Zimmerman can just do a face to face buy from a private owner in the state.

He is not a convicted felon so it’s perfectly legal and no paperwork is required.

Question to all:

This assertion of federal over state authority seems to me to have the potential of becoming a major constitutional crises.

Am I over-reacting?

This about where we are, Ma’am.

Laws are being used to harass law abiding citizens and those same laws are being ignored when it comes to organized racists openly soliciting murder.

The Black Panthers are racist terrorists, and they are being allowed to operate with impunity by our racist government.

Holder has sequestered the evidence from the trial. That gives him an opportunity to tweak it and add in some more useful evidence that he has his Creativity Department working on even now.

I think this was one step too far, for this bunch.

It has taken a second Obama term, several months of trial, and an acquittal.

All of which was ... agreed to by Americans.

This was a step too far. I think Obama lost his welcome.

Not that I’m sad, but I think so. It is all downhill from here.

Just my .02.

The DOJ has no authority to order the gun “held.” If they want it they need to go to Federal District Court to get a warrant, based upon sworn evidence of probable cause, to seize it. I believe the Florida authorities are under no obligation to honor a Justice Department request. If Zimmerman demands the return of his gun, and the Florida authorities refuse to comply, they have violated his 14th Amendment rights.

I once had a firearm confiscated unlawfully by LEO.

It took a lawsuit and more than a year to get it back just days before they were going to cut it up.

"That is the most valuable Kel Tec PF-9 in history."

It's normally a $300 gun, but I wouldn't be amazed by anything it might bring at auction.

It's obviously the most costly KelTec PF-9 in history, considering Zimmerman's legal bills.
