Bill Cosby said it right. It’s all about the gun.

Take the gun out of the Trayvon Martin equation, and you have a racist with a few bruises. You don’t have a dead man. What’s a small-time neighborhood watch patrol doing wielding a gun in the first place?

When access to firearms is easier than access to health care, something isn’t right. And when 3-year-olds are finding guns under the seat of the family car, someone needs to be brave enough to challenge the Second Amendment.
