This may not work out as well as he thinks, after all considering it is Texas most of his victims will be armed.  He can shake off legal problems like anyone but it is harder to shake off bullet wounds.

Oh... good point; I'd forgotten.

That was my thought also, I would give him 60 days in Texas before he pulled some of his sociopathic asshattery and a actual law abiding gun owner helped him shuffle his mortal coil.

5 guns and 100 rounds of ammo eh?  He's going to have to step up his game if he more here.

Geezus, no, we have enough crazy here already. Goddammit, Florida, we're trying to tone down Texas, not turn it up to 11!1

Texas has 560,000 people with CCW permits.

Florida has 1.1 million.

Yep, my thoughts exactly.


Even so with this current charge against him he isn't allowed to leave Florida at the moment so Texans will have to be patient.

Hmmm... can't say I didn't learn something today.  Doesn't Texas do open carry, though?

Nope.  An exposed handgun, even if you have a CCW permit, is a crime in Texas.  Oddly enough Florida is about just as bad with regards to open carry.

100 rounds in Texas is essentially out of ammo and you need a trip to the store.

You know that scene in Family Guy, where they're all on that boat playing "I Never Have Ever"?  Remember Quagmire near the end?

I'm reaching that point pretty quickly at this rate.  :/

In Texas, five guns is unarmed

From a Sandra Bullock movie I was made to sit through:

"Kathy Morningside: Of course he had a gun. This is Texas, everybody has a gun. My florist has a gun!"

Florida has 1.1 million.


Florida issues CCW permits to people in other states. Lots of CCW holders prefer the Florida version because it lasts five years, is cheaper, and they don't show up in the local database.

So, of those 1.1 million, I imagine the majority don't even live in Florida.
 
2013-11-26 02:04:11 PM  
Yeah, uh...I started drinking with a Zimmerman excuse at around 0830. Much more and I'll move from "taking a nap" territory to the "ow, I can't function for two days" adjunct. No thanks.

/nap town, population: me

Indeed.  Mr. Martin found this out the hard way after picking a fight with someone he didnt like walking on his side of the street.

It occurs to me, many of those Florida permit holders probably live in Texas!

Good point. He didn't have a permit for those skittles he was waving around like a maniac.

Texans tend to have guns of the non-concealable type. Can't do a lot of dove hunting with a little old .40 pistol.

That being said... dude's got a "Z" in his last name. Texas may not be as welcoming as he thinks, especially the more rural areas.

You mean the unarmed kid who is dead because someone was following him?  Yeah, he is absolutely a victim.  Zimms may be only guilty of poor judgementg, be he absolutely started the chain of events that led to an unarmed kid being shot to death.
 
2013-11-26 02:11:06 PM  
When he is convicted of Felony Domestic Violence, Florida is gonna have themselves a nice cache of guns to destroy.

Because all we have are two women looking for money but too inept to have a tape recorder?

Back in the old days, they used to record audio and video on stream of tape.  We also used to walk to school and played games that uses single use batteries.

Wasn't the assault or death threat a felony?  I thought he lost his right to bear arms.

Well he can't move to Arizona, he's get deported.

They also found more than 100 rounds of ammunition.

Wow, it's an arsenal!!!

Seriously, the guy's a douche nozzle to the nth degree, but really, 100 rounds of ammo?
 
2013-11-26 02:19:31 PM  
Wait I forget, is Zimmerman the Sandy Hook kid or the orange hair Aurora Colorado guy?

lacrossestar83: Oh, so Trayvon is the "victim" now?


Well he is the dead one at least.  Happy?  I was thinking more of the romantic interests with by whom he can't seem to avoid getting the police called.

Great_Milenko: They'll tear down the Alamo just so he has a place to put a double-wide.


They'll give him the room in the basement, and unlimited use of the bicycle.

You know what state doesn't honor Florida permits?  Let's ask former NY Giants wide receiver and Florida CCW holder Plaxico Burress!

That's right, Florida's CCW was the big news back in the day. First state to have it, I think, except for the previous "special" permits people could get.

TheGogmagog: Wasn't the assault or death threat a felony?  I thought he lost his right to bear arms.


You mean the one where the wife declined to press charges after they informed her of the presence of a recording device?  that felony?
 
2013-11-26 02:22:12 PM  
Zimmerman in Texas?  I forsee that being a short-lived experience, ending in an ironic death given how he likes to stir shiat up.

Mikey1969: Seriously, the guy's a douche nozzle to the nth degree, but really, 100 rounds of ammo?


That's one box.  I agree with other posters that said that equals "almost out," and I don't even own any guns.
