Man Who Shot At George Zimmerman Will Use Stand Your Ground Defense
Matthew Apperson, the man on trial for shooting at George Zimmerman (the man who got acquitted for shooting Trayvon Martin), will argue he acted in self-defense by standing his ground against George Zimmerman (the man who argued he acted in self-defense, essentially by standing his ground against Trayvon Martin.)
According to the AP, Apperson plans to request a Stand Your Ground hearing before his trial begins—a step Zimmerman skipped during his 2012 murder trial.
As I posted last month when this whole incident first happened, Apperson and Zimmerman have a long, tortured history with each other. Both are concealed-carry permit holders. And how exactly is this not the Wild Wild West scenario we’ve always warned about?
Near as I can tell, both of these “responsible citizens” are a public menace.
