    Would Trayvon Martin have doubled back in the dark and attacked George Zimmerman if he knew he had a gun?

      I dig where you're coming from but you're not answering the question.
      You can submit that question to hubpages like I did this one

      Then my answer is yes, I believe he would have. And I believe he would have been severely injured as a result if not killed.

    vveasey, lots of luck on trying to get a discussion going.  I don't know if he would have or not.  If he had not had the gun, Trayvon Martin might be alive.

      And George Zimmerman might be dead instead.

      Thanks Diane
      This is not really supposed to be a discussion page that's what the hubs are for.
      People are just supposed to answer the question the way they see it with any detail they want to add.

    Generally, a weapon that gives one superior force emboldens some types of people. It's reasonable to assume that Zimmerman may have followed Martin from a distance, rather than confronting him, if he did not have a weapon.

      There is no evidence that Zimmerman confronted Martin.  As for emboldening certain types, those who legally carry concealed firearms are, statistically, the least likely to commit a crime, whereas, teenage men, armed or not, commit most crime.

    He probably still would have because he had become so frustrated with the burgalars getting away every time before the police showed up. Zimmerman was staying put and observing until Trayvon started to run from where he saw him, that's when he started to follow him while still on the phone with the police department. From how he sounded on the phone he was just fed up with whoever the thieves were getting away.
