Dear State Legislator,
Since the Trayvon Martin incident, anti-gun activists and much of the media have been trying to get people to think that the “Stand your Ground” in Florida is the reason for Trayvon Martin’s tragic death. Now that the verdict has been read, the truth is coming out, this case was not about the “Stand your Ground” law. George Zimmerman’s attorney did not even use the “Stand your Ground” law as a defense. Even the United States Attorney General doesn’t seem to understand the Zimmerman case had nothing to do with the “Stand your Ground” law.
Please take a moment to read the articles below about the Zimmerman case and the “Stand your Ground” law:

If you have any questions regarding this or any firearm- and hunting-related issue, please contact your NRA State Liaison at State&Local@nrahq.org or 703-267-1240.
