While we don't typically celebrate anything involving gun deaths or the people who think that they have a right to cause them – especially when that right is so specious as to be the color of your skin or the volume of your music – we are actually happy that Michael Dunn, who was already convicted on three charges in Jacksonville of second-degree murder and sentenced to 60 years, got his comeuppance today when a jury, after six hours, concluded that, yes, Dunn did intend to kill teenager Jordan Davis; that's why he shot 10 bullets into an SUV in November 2012. He faces up to life in prison for first-degree murder. There's not much to add here, except that we hope this standing on sanctimony while playing vigilante thing is at least deterred in the state that saw George Zimmerman almost become a reality show hero after he killed (seeing as we can't use the word murdered here; thanks commentariat) a kid. Stand your ground? Stand on principle.
