The civil rights groups that turned outrage over Trayvon Martin's death into action say their work is far from over now that his killer has been charged with second-degree murder. Next, they hope to harness the activism to challenge Florida's "stand your ground" law and similar statutes in 24 other states.
But they also worry about maintaining their momentum during what could be a long judicial process and translating it into political action that could help sway lawmakers. The leaders plan to use churches, social media and other means to rally the movement that has already prompted protesters to take to the streets in several major cities.
"Arresting Zimmerman is the beginning of the process. This is a first down, not a touchdown," the Rev. Jesse Jackson told The Associated Press this week from Houston...

A lot of what passes for Ben Franklin and Abe Lincoln quotes are questionable, at best. Even if he never said it though, it’s the truth. No society in the history of mankind was or is anywhere near as well armed, not even the Swiss.
So the “Civil Rights”(read blacks and their leftist masters) activists are frightened that whites are armed and can legally stand their ground. The idiots are advocating disarming whites while the number of black on white assaults are increasing.
Gee! Didn’t see that coming! [Super-syrupy sarcasm]
Diagrams brought back the horror of 8th grade English.
What I’ve read is that, while he probably didn’t actually say the quote, the sentiment it reflects was well in place...at least within the Imperial Navy. (The Army may have been another matter, given some of the puffed-up, overreaching “geniuses” they fielded, like Mutaguchi, Hatachi and the infamous Masanobu Tsuji.)
If only they could use that same energy to teach their kids that beating the sh1t out of someone, even if they’ve upset you, isn’t the right and civil thing to do, and that it may get you killed when the person defends their life.
It never fails they never look at themselves and how they are not raising their kids right. Their kids kill other black kids and there’s no peep out of them as a community to get their kids in line. Nowadays when fights break out among blacks at high schools they call their parents, and the parents come down to the school - often armed with something - and start in in the fight, too.
Containment while they self-destruct as a race. That is what it boils down to. And you can thank liberals for it with their non-father-in-the-home and paid-to-be-a-baby-machine welfare policies.
It’s only a problem in today’s sentence structure. Not in the Founding Fathers time. Simple education easily fixes that.
>The whole problem is the dang comma’s...
The ratified 2nd Amendment has only one comma, right after ‘state.’
Hey, Jessie! FOAD!
From my cold dead hands.....MF’rs!!!
Funny, since Jesse Jackson has a large “secret” gun collection. Same with Steven Spielberg.
Well, they ought to have said it.
Any authorization to practice the 2nd Amendment is bad for them. They want us to disarm, but you can bet they would not. The bare-faced animosity towards guns and Whites makes it so we would be nuts to disarm even if the 'edict" comes down the pipes. Not only un-Constitutional, but it would llow them to target us at will. It's amazing how the race-baiters have set us back 100 years and are making it so the average White now needs to do exactly what they bitch about - profile.
That was their intent all along.
“Next, they hope to harness the activism to challenge Florida’s “stand your ground” law and similar statutes in 24 other states.”
Eat lead, b*tch. You come after my family, you’ll die where you stand.
Oops, too honkey harsh.
If choirboys who look like obuma, if he had sons, in some manner or form interfere with my legitimate course of life, you will be taught a corrective lesson.
You find it in the media, but the Dems are SCARED TO DEATH if gun control becomes an issue in 2012. Even Obama won’t touch that Third Rail.
SYG laws are the only thing which somewhat level the field against armed thugs for honest citizens.
And Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton are for repealing them. Speaks volumes about their constituency.
” Of course they cant openly say they are against self defense,”
Sure, they want you to use non-violent conflict resolution techniques instead! (SARCASM;)
I always thought diagraming sentences, like doing geometry proofs, was FUN!
But then I'm a wierd 4 eyed geek. One who used to wear "railroad tracks" on my shoulders. Several of my fellow Geometry geeks did that too. Two of them went to West. Point.
