The following is an excerpt from Forbes.com and their response to the Zimmerman verdict and POTUS interference. Basically no need for more laws that will only restrict lawful American's rights, but enforce some laws already in place to address gun violence.

Maybe it’s time the president notices that inner-city gun laws aren’t being adequately enforced. For example, in 2012 Chicago was the murder capital of the U.S. Incredibly, also in 2012, Chicago ranked dead last when it came to enforcement of federal gun laws. Out of 90 federal jurisdictions in the country, Chicago ranked 90th. David Burnham, co-director of Transactional Records Access Clearinghouse (TRAC) at Syracuse University, determined that according to case-by-case U.S. Justice Department information obtained under the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) requests by TRAC, there were 52 prosecutions in Illinois North (Chicago) in 2012, or 5.52 per million in population. By this measure, compared with the 90 federal judicial districts in the U.S., the prosecution rate in Chicago was the lowest in the entire nation even as the city’s murder rate was the highest.Meanwhile, criminals who try to buy guns aren’t being prosecuted. According to the National Criminal Justice Reference Service (NCJRS), in 2010 of the 6 million Americans who attempted to buy a gun about 76,000 were denied. Of those, the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF) referred 4,732 cases for prosecution. Of these, just 44 people were prosecuted and 13 punished.

Actually, this article, and the post have little to do with Zimmerman, or Martin. The article actually has little to do with SYG laws as well.

It does have to do with the Presidential propensity to USE the Zimmerman case to further his agenda to strip the rights of law abiding citizens to defend themselves.

Just because the name Zimmerman or Martin is used in a headline, does not actually mean the article had anything to do with the case, self defense, or even SYG. It only means the periodical wants you to read the article, and knows that by using the names, it "hooks" more readers...

It's a good and relevant article about the real problems of enforcing existing gun control laws without further infringing on the right to keep and bear arms inherent to the law abiding.

Yeah, I got tapatalk, too. So what?

Gee, I thought the main stream press was a bunch of trained porpoises.

Forbes should start his own cable news channel. Oh wait...

How do you compete with CSPAN?
