Stand Up to "Stand Your Ground" PSA Video

A Disturbing PSA Against Gun Violence Reenacts the Trayvon Martin Shooting

An unsettling PSA that reimagines the shooting of Trayvon Martin has been released by the Coalition to Stop Gun Violence to protest the "Stand Your Ground" laws that currently exist in 26 states. The ad features audio clips from George Zimmerman's phone call on the night of the shooting plus startling visuals of actors moving through the motions of the incident, eventually panning to several teens lying on the grass in hoodies. It's a dark, troubling ad that's sure to spark debate — not only because of its disturbing content, but also because Zimmerman didn't use the "Stand Your Ground" law as defense in his Florida trial.
