Tayvon Martin is the New Matthew Sheppard

A murder spree in Chicago and the  the lame streamers  the lamer-in-chief, are talking about a probable self-defense in Florida:

(CBS News [1]) SANFORD, Florida — It was an extraordinary moment at the White House Friday. President Obama made his first public comments about Trayvon Martin, the unarmed Florida teenager who shot to death by a neighborhood watch volunteer. He spoke not only as the president, but as an African-American parent. He said, “When I think about this boy, I think about my own kids.”

And from the Chicago Sun-Times [2]:

Pounding the podium with emotion, Mayor Rahm Emanuel said Friday he’s outraged by the bloodbath of violence that claimed the life of a 6-year-old playing on her porch in front of her parents and nearly killed a Chicago Police officer.

“What happened is unacceptable. Our streets are for our children and for our law-abiding parents. I cannot think of anything worse than if a family is hanging out on their front porch [enjoying] nice spring-like weather that that is violated by violence. Our streets do not belong to gang bangers,” Emanuel said.

“While obviously 10 [murders] over a weekend is dramatic, it is too frequent and too normal. I will not allow a child in Chicago to not have — as long as I’m mayor and I have something to do about it — the most basic of rights, which is the ability to play in their neighborhood, play on their streets and grow up with that sense of normalcy.”

While I may regret the death of a teenager, Tayvon Martin, if  deaths such as his are the price we have to pay to live in an armed and safe society,  sobeit.   It is  gun free utopias like Mayor Emanuel’s, that pose the greater threat to the public in general and blackx in particular than do civilized carry states like Florida:

Who poses a greater threat to life and liberty, armed citizens like George Zimmerman or fanatics like Rahm Emanuel?
