    Why? Why? Why?

    If politics are discussed here on a regular basis why prohibit discussion now? The Martin family is certainly not stopping their activities!!!

    The Martian's family is appearing at rally's in both New York and Florida this weekend!

    The 100-city “Justice for Trayvon" vigils, which the Rev. Al Sharpton announced Tuesday on the steps of the U.S. Department of Justice in Washington, D.C., will be staged mostly at federal court buildings across the country. In California, rallies are scheduled in Los Angeles, Oakland, Palmdale, Riverside, Sacramento, San Francisco and the Monterey County city of Seaside.

    Trayvon Martin’s mother, Sybrina Fulton, and Martin’s brother, Jahvaris, will attend a rally in New York City, along with Sharpton. Martin’s father, Tracy Martin, is attending a vigil in Miami.

    With the vigils, organizers are hoping to build momentum for the filing of federal civil rights charges against Zimmerman.

    A Note Regarding the Zimmerman Trial
    Both the Martin and Zimmerman families have asked for Americans to peaceably respect the verdict in the case against George Zimmerman. In light of that, we're going allow the matter some peace and have a moratorium on any discussions on the case here until the end of summer.

    Thanks for your understanding.

    There are no discussions of the trial or verdict, but there's no reason that Anti 2A activity isn't on topic. BUT there will be no discussion outside the 2A issues and using the 2A to discuss non 2A issues, like civil rights investigations or charges or mob behavior encouraging them, is dishonest and won't be tolerated.

    BTW, see the posting requirements for Activism. Presenting a plan of action is required. Complaints go in Technical.
