Yeah... I can see that....
"Hey, I know you're going to sucker punch me, so I'm telling you now I have a gun."
So I ask you, is it right that we should assume (profile) that people are going to start a fight and thus inform them we have a gun? If this is the
case, why doesn't everyone simply open carry? Why even conceal guns in the first place? Wait.. Here's a better question...
Why can't we conceal and expect people to be civil?
Just because you're following someone in your neighborhood, or simply walking through a neighborhood being followed.. neither give anyone the right to
initiate a physical fight.
We know for a fact, due to testimony of Rachel Jeantel, that Zimmerman simply asked "What are you doing around here?" (Then there was a bump). Is
that not civil enough? Should I walk around with civility and inform everyone I come across that I'm carrying concealed?
My point is, why can't people just be expected to not start fights? Following does not warrant you to punch someone in the face, get on top of them,
and smash their head into the concrete.
