Cosby Says Guns, Not Race, the Key Issue In Trayvon Martin Case

CNN.com:

“The race of Florida teen Trayvon Martin had less to do with his death than the fact that the neighborhood watch volunteer who killed him was carrying a gun, comedian Bill Cosby told CNN in an interview that aired Sunday.”

Exactly correct. Martin is dead not because he was the victim of a racially motivated crime, but because his shooter had two things: a gun, and a state law allowing him to use it when faced with less than deadly force.
