A gun-rights advocate calls it “ludicrous” that the U.S. Justice Department is considering charging George Zimmerman with the death of Trayvon Martin.
Attorney General Eric Holder said earlier this week that the Justice Department will follow "the facts and the law" as it reviews evidence to see whether federal criminal charges are warranted against George Zimmerman in the shooting death of Trayvon Martin.
“If they were to do that, they would so embarrass themselves,” says Larry Pratt, executive director of Gun Owners of America.
“His great-grandmother was an African,” Pratt continues. “His mother is Peruvian. He mentors black children. His date at the high school prom was a black gal. This is a guy who's not your poster child for racist."
Pratt also says Zimmerman never uttered a racist remark during all the hours of questioning by authorities.
"The only thing racist that was quoted in the trial was something Martin had used, a derogatory term for that ‘white guy’ that was pursuing him."
Pratt says if the Obama Justice Department really cared about gun violence, it would address the rampant black-on-black murder rate in the president's hometown of Chicago.
