Repeal Georgia's Stand Your Ground Law

We do not want a tragedy like the Trayvon Martin case to happen to a citizen of Georgia due to our "shoot first," "stand your ground" law. No citizen should be profiled and shot while their perpetrator is allowed to go unpunished due to such a law with unclear applications and loopholes. Therefore, we call upon you to repeal Georgia's "stand your ground" law.

Senator Vincent Fort has drafted legislation to repeal this law, and we call upon you to support and pass the repeal of "stand your ground" in the state of Georgia!

Why is this important?

Georgia is one of the twenty plus states that have Stand Your Ground laws or doctrines that virtually gives an individual the right to "shoot first" - in other words, a license to kill. In light of the tragedy and unjust killing of Trayvon Martin, we want to prevent a similar tragedy from happening in Georgia and want to repeal Georgia's law.
