The "real case" is nothing new or remarkable. The law that decided this is old hat self-defense which has been a part of the common law for hundreds of years. One can probably find a case from 1800 involving a gun being used in self defense. No need to sound the drama alarms, this doesn't change anything. I doubt too many people want to put themselves in Zimmerman's shoes.
