At least, that is the only conclusion to be drawn from George Zimmerman’s recent autograph session at an Orlando gun show, and photo op at a gun shop. Hundreds of people from the “get away with murder state” lined up to kiss George’s pimply backside, thus showing their support for his actions.

And his actions were as follows: stalking, assaulting, and murdering an unarmed minor in cold blood. So if you support Zimmerman, you support kiddie-killing.

Don’t like that characterization, oh Gun-Nutter Floridians? Are you offended by being called out for the racist, child-killer wannabees that you most obviously are? Then show us differently. For now, the shoe, having fit you so well, remains on your foot.

“Florida: Paradise for Child Murderers”. It has a certain ring to it, and is 100% accurate, too.

Obama said it: http://news.yahoo.com/-obama–trayvon-martin-%E2%80%98could-have-been-me-35-years-ago%E2%80%99–180734663.html Click the link and read what the man said.

“And for those who resist that idea—that we should think about something like these ‘stand your ground’ laws—I just ask people to consider: If Trayvon Martin was of age and armed, could he have stood his ground on that sidewalk? And do we actually think that he would have been justified in shooting Mr. Zimmerman, who had followed him in a car, because he felt threatened?” the president said.

“And if the answer to that question is at least ambiguous, then it seems to me that we might want to examine those kinds of laws,” Obama said.

Mr. Blunt and Cranky is hardly a fan of the President, as his readers well know. But dammit, the man is right on this one. Stand Your Ground laws are nothing more or less than the Old West come again. Gun battles on the streets will be the logical result of this policy.

Think about it: Armed Citizen Number A meets Armed Citizen Letter 2. Both feel threatened by the other. A gun battle ensues, because both shooters are justified under Stand Your Ground (SYG) laws. Somebody dies, nobody can be charged, and people realize they can kill anyone they damned well please just by claiming that they were all skeered and s***.

The more people on the ground with guns and nebulous rules of engagement, the more shootings and shootouts we will see. Just like Sanford. But all over the country. Not just one kid, but many times many.

And criminals are using SYG in the course of their business: for example, the burglar who used SYG to justify shooting the man he was robbing. Yes, it really happened: http://thinkprogress.org/justice/2013/07/17/2308681/stand-your-ground-south-carolina/?mobile=nc And it’s just gonna get crazier, peeps.

Just this once, everybody, let’s listen to the man in the White House. The rule of law is what America is based on. We tried the Wild West, and it didn’t work. That’s a big reason for all the handgun laws we have now, you know..

So instead of continuing to let the arms industry con us into financing their money-making schemes by trying to cram more and guns into every pocket we own, let’s go back to what worked for decades.

Instead of going waaaay back to what didn’t.

P.S. The “lying sack of s***” award will return next Saturday. This topic was more important than a sarky dose of snark.

Mr. Blunt and Cranky hopes that George Zimmerman really is so stupid as to not understand that “God’s plan” most likely did not include him gunning down a innocent teenager (hint: God could have struck the kid dead Himself if He had wanted to).

He further hopes that the man really is so stupid as to not have realized that having many thousands of dollars in a bank account was something to have told the judge about while filing court papers.

He also hopes that the man really is so stupid as to not know the meanings of “murder”, “abuse”, and other relevant terms.

Not to wish even more stupidity upon a world that already seems to have more than its share; but the prospect of Zimmerman’s being nearly brain dead is far less scary than his truly believing that God wants him to kill people, commit abusive acts towards his partners and others, lie to courts, and commit various and sundry criminal acts as part of His Divine Plan.

Mr. B & C

Lost in the debate over the shooting of a young man in Florida by a self-appointed guardian of public order is the amazing stupidity of said self-appointed Judge Dredd-Lite, one George Zimmerman. A judgmental, puffed-up fool with a handgun, running around, looking for trouble should have expected to find trouble, or at least, that’s what one would think.  But when he found it, he was clearly unprepared. Such a moron deserves to have a variety of stupidity named after him. 

So, in honor of His Zimmermanness, some classic examples of Zimmermaning:

Sticking one’s hand in a fire, and then being shocked when the flesh on said hand is burnt.

Drinking two fifths of Jack, driving immediately afterwards, and then being shocked when the cops pull one over.

Ignoring the “Do Not Feed the Bears” Sign and then being shocked when one gets mauled.

Ignoring police advice to leave an apparently law-abiding citizen alone, and then being shocked when he reacts negatively to being stalked and harassed.

Regardless of how the trial turns out, George Zimmerman is a walking reminder to us all of the consequences of crossing boundaries, not listening to advice, and failure to respect the right of others by minding our own business.  And of being just plain stupid.

Have you Zimmermaned today? If so, stop. If not, good for you.
