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


“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.
