Time To Lay Low?
If you were George Zimmerman would you not think it a good idea to maybe lay low for awhile? Find a place to hide out, get someone else to do the grocery shopping, subscribe to Netflix and pass your days watching movies until things cool off.
Instead, Zimmerman has been prominently in the news in the last few weeks. First, he and another passing motorist helped people escape from a vehicle that had overturned on an interstate exit ramp. Nice job. Then, just a couple days ago he was pulled over for speeding. The dash cam video above catches the whole thing. As required by law, he immediately informed the officer that he has a concealed carry permit and that he had a loaded handgun in the glove compartment. The officer, after checking for warrants, lets him off with a warning.
The media is focusing on the fact that he had a gun in his vehicle. With all the hatred and outrage aimed at him in the wake of his trial and acquittal, carrying a gun seems to me the prudent thing to do. But really, why not just stay home for awhile? Or if you're going to go out, obey all laws.
