7. Not analogous. Breaking and entering is a crime; following and confronting isn't a crime.

Maybe if it can be shown that he did so in a threatening way, but there is no right to not being approached in public.

About the whole armed thing, concealed carry means that you shouldn't know if the person following you is armed. Now, if the person is waving a gun around, that is a crime and you are entitled to self defense. But in this case, there is no evidence that points to Zimmerman walking around with his gun visible, and assuming that he's engaging in one crime in order to demonstrate guilt of another crime is really sloppy thinking.
