Gun Retailer Sells Trayvon Shooting Target
An online gun retailer has sparked outrage over the sale of a shooting target based on the likeness of Trayvon Martin, the unarmed black teenager shot dead in Florida earlier this year. The site, GunBroker.com, carried an advertisement from a Florida man offering a paper silhouette depicting a hooded man holding skittles and iced tea — the same items Martin was holding when self-appointment neighborhood watchman George Zimmerman shot him dead. The unidentified seller says he sold out of the targets in two days. They are no longer being listed online.
Supporters Claim Self-Defense for Florida Mom Sentenced to 20 Years
In news from Florida, a 31-year-old mother of three has been sentenced to 20 years in prison for firing what she maintains was a warning shot at her abusive husband. Marissa Alexander has maintained she was defending herself when she fired a gun into a wall near her husband, who had allegedly had a history of physical abuse. Alexander, who is African American, had turned down a plea bargain that would have seen her jailed for three years. On Friday, she was sentenced to two decades behind bars under a Florida law known as 10-20-life that carries a mandatory minimum for certain gun crimes regardless of the circumstance.
