George Zimmerman Goes Shotgun Shopping

George Zimmerman is making a list and checking it twice…..a shopping list for a Kel-Tec KSG shotgun. The fearsome tactical weapon holds 12 rounds of 12 gauge shells, where you don’t even have to be a good shooter. Just point and shoot and blow the doors off the side of objects as big as barn doors. The weapon is often used for home defense, which is interesting because besides blowing away some intruder, the shotgun will also blow away a lot of your home as well. – Maybe, at some point this can rightfully be called….uh, overkill….

  • Nope. “There is no ‘overkill.’ There is only ‘open fire’ and ‘I need to reload, you call 911.'” (Slightly adapted from Maxim 37 of Schlock Mercenary’s 70 Maxims of Maximally Effective Mercenaries.)

    It’s a fun series – started out pretty crudely drawn about 12-14 years ago, but the cartoonist has really come a long way and it’s an excellent sci-fi comic.

    Anyhow, at this point Zimmerman cannot trust that the police will get to him in time if he’s in trouble due to a mass of moronic (Wait, was that racist?) people not liking his ‘racist’ tendencies and deciding to lynch him for Trayvon. (Wait – I used the word ‘lynch’, was that racist?) If I were in his situation, I’d sure as hell consider how much firepower I could reasonably and legally carry – and I’m a pretty peaceable sort.

    When it comes to survival, I hate to use the old phrase ‘It’s better to be judged by 12 than carried by 6.’ He was almost carried by six – I won’t begrudge him something like that at all.

    And with all due consideration, I’d probably get a 15-round shotgun myself.

      George Zimmerman does have legitimate reasons to be concerned for his safety because of this controversial case. – But, the story about the gun is mostly for fun here….another oh oh thing…

      • Which is why I was using Schlock Mercenary as a reference. 😉
