1996 Cadillac Seville Found Guilty

With all the furor over the Florida teen who was shot and killed on February 26, 2012, the gun control issue is once again hiked over liberals' heads as to what is really the culprit in this tragedy.

Although I can't figure out what circumstances must exist for a shooting to be blamed on gun control, it nevertheless seems to be what anti-gun folks latch on to in an attempt to further their own argument for stricter gun control laws.

Here's a little cliche that I am very fond of throwing around, not only because it makes reasonable sense - it's the frakking physical truth!!! - "Guns don't kill people.  People kill people."

A gun is an inanimate object.  It makes no decisions for itself nor does it undertake the impossibility of putting itself in a human being's hand.

The same can be said of a vehicle, a kitchen knife, a plastic bag, a zip tie, a rock - all inanimate objects that, in the hands of a human being, can be used to kill someone else.

I'm not here to argue the case for or against Mr. Zimmerman.

But I wish people who lay the lame blame on guns for shooting homicides would grow a brain cell or two before they open their ignorant mouths.
