As the saying goes, “One gun good, five guns much better!”. According to a search warrant that was made public, George Zimmerman had five guns and over 100 rounds of ammunition with him when deputies arrested him earlier this month for allegedly beating up his girlfriend. Reports the Guardian:
A search warrant made public by the Seminole County court clerk shows that Zimmerman had a 12-gauge shotgun, an AR-15 assault rifle and three handguns when he was arrested 18 November at his girlfriend’s house. The girlfriend, Samantha Scheibe, told deputies that Zimmerman pointed a shotgun at her during an argument and also used it to smash her coffee table.
Zimmerman has been charged with aggravated assault, battery and criminal mischief, and has pleaded not guilty. He is now out on $9000 bail.
One really must wonder how a man can racially profile, then kill an unarmed teenager who was running away from him, punch his step father in the face and threaten his wife, then point a shotgun at his new girlfriend and still be allowed to have 5 guns. Of course Zimmerman claims otherwise, but there is a very obvious pattern emerging.
It would be easy to label Zimmerman a ticking time bomb (as his ex wife did recently), but the truth is, he already went off.
