"Stand Your Ground" Laws Attacked Despite Broad Public Support

Posted: 05.10.12 04:00 PM

In an effort to capitalize on the Trayvon Martin shooting, this week, Reps. Raul Grijalva (D-Ariz.) and Keith Ellison (D-Minn.), co-chairs of the Congressional Progressive Caucus, threatened to offer a so-called "Trayvon Amendment" that would cut funding to states with "stand your ground" laws.* The legislators quickly reversed course when they learned the motion would likely be ruled out of order.
