    I think this whole thing is more about the NRA, ALEC and Stand Your Ground law.  It is Gun Politics more so than race, BUT it so happened that the story that brought it to the public's attention was the "racial" aspect.  Had this been a white guy that shot a white guy it might not have gotten the attention that it has, nor would have been in the spotlight if there wasn't the added "cover up".  Of course then you have the added factor of the shooter being what appears to be a racist with some history.  I do agee with you that it threatens to expose the racist underpinning of the whole gun rights movement.  JMHO
