factions remain who "want to take the law into their own hands"
You mean like George Zimmerman, who took the law into his own hands and chased down a teenage boy?
Oh, wait, that quote comes from Zimmerman's brother, and he's claiming that there are hacks like his brother who want to kill his brother.
Well, if he felt safer with his gun, he can take that gun back now. That was what it was for, right?
