Wow! And they found a religious pendant. Trying to make him out to be a religious zealot that likes guns huh? Did you know that most killings by guns are done by registered Democrats? Virginia Tech, Arizona, Columbine, and such, the killers were registered Democrats or their parents were. Once again TMZ and the press trying to make something out of nothing.

They confiscated a "religious pendant". Why on earth would a religious pendant be confiscated?

While this guy is obviously a looney, I would stick pile weapons too with all the death threats. I'm not saying he should be allowed, I just see why.

Well if a guy has nothing to offer this world in his head or between his legs, he buys a lot of guns .

GZ is a mad dog death monger and nobody needs five guns or 100 rounds of ammo sitting around his girl friends house. I agree he will get off on this one too because of NRA money. Sooner or later GZ will come up against a faster, better shot and then he'll get what he's long deserved.

So, is it illegal? Does it prove that he indeed pointed a gun at the gf, or did she just know about the guns, much like the wife? Does it prove that the attack on Trayvon Martin was racially motivated? That's supposedly the real reason why we care about this nut, right?

The guy is a coward. I know his type: He can't crush a grape in a food fight, so he must rely on guns to defend his big fat mouth and attitude. Sadly, most gun fanatics I know are the same way - take away their guns and their mouths would get their asses kicked within an hour! (Sad but true.)

WTF -- it's time to get pistols and semiautomatic rifles out of the hands of villains and civilians! Hunting rifles only -- for "sporting" use only, assuming the sport isn't humans...

"Stockpile" or "Collection"? Jay Leno "stockpiles" cars? He's got way more then 5. Or is the use of the word "stockpile" in the story just inflammatory?

So they found his legally registered firearms?????? So what???? I own guns, too. Where's the story here??? As for what his girlfriend "alleged" he did or didn't do, good luck proving any of it. I'm not a Zimmerman fan but this "crime" evidence is flimsy at best and he'll walk, believe me.
