NAACP testifies at Senate Committee hearing on “Stand Your Ground” laws

“The NAACP is staunchly opposed to “Stand Your Ground” laws,” said Hilary O. Shelton in his testimony. “They are applied in a racially biased manner, and the bottom line is, as we saw in Sanford, FL, that they make it easier for people to murder other human beings and not face any legal consequence. As such eviscerating any deterrent to gun related homicides, and even providing a road map to getting out of jail scot-free.”
