The Hill reported that George Zimmerman is suing Massachusetts Senator Elizabeth Warren and former South Bend, Indiana Mayor Pete Buttigieg for comments they made about Trayvon Martin’s death.
Zimmerman garnered controversy in 2012 when he killed Trayvon Martin in self-defense after he was brutally assaulted.
The altercation was initiated when Zimmerman followed Martin on the suspicion that Martin was scoping the neighborhood for a potential robbery attempt. Martin opted to escalate the situation when Zimmerman confronted him, which compelled Zimmerman to use lethal force once it became clear that Martin was savagely pummeling him.
Newsweek reported that the lawsuit accuses the two Democratic presidential candidates of defaming Zimmerman by attributing Martin’s death to “fear” or “gun violence.”
The suit centers on two tweets the candidates posted, which included accusations of “white supremacy” and “racism.”
“My heart goes out to [Martin’s mother] @SybrinaFulton and Trayvon’s family and friends. He should still be with us today. We need to end gun violence and racism. And we need to build a world where all of our children-especially young Black boys-can grow up safe and free,” Warren tweeted.
“Trayvon Martin would have been 25 today. How many 25th birthdays have been stolen from us by white supremacy, gun violence, prejudice, and fear?” Buttigieg said in another Tweet.
“The only ‘fear’ Zimmerman experienced, as established in the 2013 trial and well-covered in the media, was in the context of Zimmerman believing he might go unconscious and die from the repeated beating of his head against the sidewalk pavement or by choking to death from the blood going down his throat due to his broken nose during the beating by Martin,” Zimmerman’s attorney responded in court documents. These court documents accuse the two candidates of pursuing a “political agenda to garner votes in the black community.”
Zimmerman argued that he shot Martin in self-defense.
He ended up not being found guilty of second-degree murder in the Martin case in 2013, which received national coverage.
Contrary to the mainstream media’s portrayal of Martin as an innocent young man, Martin had a list of suspensions in high school and was suspected of robbery in one of the suspensions, although Martin never faced criminal charges.
Merrick Garland Suggests that Getting Rid of Lawsuit Protections is Not a Second Amendment Violation
Garland as AG will be a disaster for the right to bear arms.
If Merrick Garland is nominated as Attorney General, the Second Amendment is in big trouble.
Based on his comments at a Senate hearing on February 22, 2021, Garland made a suggestion that the repeal of lawsuit protections for gun manufacturers is not unconstitutional.
AWR Hawkins of Breitbart News reminded his readers that President Joe Biden campaigned on a platform of repealing the Protection of Lawful Commerce in Arms Act (PLCAA), which shielded lawful gun manufacturers from lawsuits.
In a previous Breitbart News report, Biden spoke at an MSNBC forum in 2019 alongside gun control organizations such as March for Our Lives where he expressed his support for gun manufacturers to be subject to lawsuits.
At the speech, Biden suggested that the PLCC be repealed. He declared, “No other outfit in history has gotten this kind of protection” and asserted that the legal actions would bring about “change overnight.”
In a subsequent occasion on February 7, 2020, Breitbart News covered Biden’s remarks to a New Hampshire crowd, in which he stated that it was a “mistake” to shield firearms manufacturers from lawsuits. He continued, “The first thing I’m going to do as president is work to get rid of that.”
Later that month, Breitbart News recalled how Biden called out gun manufacturers at a South Carolina rally and boasted, “I’m going to take you down.”
According to a report by The Salt Lake Tribune, Utah Senator Mike Lee asked Garland about his views on removing protections for gun manufacturers. Garland responded, “I have not thought myself deeply about this. I don’t think it raises a Second Amendment issue.”
When he was questioned if he is in favor of Biden’s plans to ban so-called “assault weapons”, Garland responded, “Where there is room under the law for the president’s policies to be pursued, then I think the president is entitled to pursue them.”
Biden’s track record as a gun control proponent is well-documented. From his support of gun-free zones at schools to the 1994 Assault Weapons Ban, Biden is Gun Control Inc.’s guy. With Democrats in control of the House and the Senate, there will most certainly be attempts to ram gun control down our throats. If they can’t beat us legislatively, they will most certainly use the courts to undermine the Second Amendment. Pro-gun organizations should be ready to lawyer up and use whatever means possible to keep courts from destroying our rights.
