    Bill Cosby weighs in on Zimmerman verdict...

    It's a mixed bag. On one hand, he says you can't prove that Zimmerman is a racist. On the other hand, he says,

    "I know that if you have a gun, it changes your whole feeling about what you can tell people, about how people better do what you say. Your mind can turn in such a way that you have a sense of control and power. "
    So anyone who carries a firearm is automatically a power hungry control freak.

    My wife will tell you that when I began carrying, I didn't become any such thing. If anything, it has made me more aware of my duties as a citizen to really toe the line. I am no more power and control hungry than when I began carrying.

    He also said "I would never pay attention to information given to me by media, radio, whatever, about a high profile case until the jury says what it says,"

    Couldn't agree more.
    I'm sure something witty or useful will make it's way into this space, eventually.

    I would say I'm more polite when I carry, and I carry everywhere except work. I also drive a lot closer to the posted speed limit when I carry.
    Bill Cosby often has interesting opinions on matters concerning young black males. He is a great success advocate.

    The only power one gains from being able to carry a firearm is ones right to exercise his 2nd amendment right freely. Has me being able to conceal carry change me NO I am still the same person I was before I started to carry. Do I see things different yes and I take them for what they are at face value. Carrying a gun changes only those who are in the wrong mindset

    I have followed him since his I Spy and records as a stand up comic, he was a Corpsman.

  8. I think his opinion is more in the way of would Zimmerman still have confronted Martin if he didn't have the gun or would he have waited for the police. I don't think he was saying that everybody with a gun is aggressive.

    I gain nothing by being able to carry a gun except the freedom our founding fathers granted. You can chose to carry or not your call.

    He was indeed a Corpsman.
    Yep, I have been a fan of the man for all those years as well. Heck of a guy really.

    Well now, I have been called a xenophobe, homophobic white man of privilege, racist, because I work for a living and feel that I have been taxed enough already.
    Now I am a power hungry control freak because I carry.

    Not for nuttin but if you call me names long enough I just may start believing it . In other words emmefer be careful what you wish for.
    Tolerance of the intolerant leads to the destruction of tolerance. “You are also reminded that any inappropriate remarks or jokes concerning security may result in your arrest,” in the land of the free.
