Stand Up To Stand Your Ground. That is the vision of a new campaigned launched by The Coalition to Stop Gun Violence to abolish Stand Your Ground Laws in 26 American states. The new campaign includes an eery online PSA featuring 911 audio from the Trayvon Martin shooting. Viewers will hear audio of George Zimmerman speaking to the 911 operator as he followed Trayvon Martin and audio from a neighbor who witnessed the ordeal from her window. The video ends with the camera panning over scores of hooded bodies lifelessly lying on the floor while a roll call of Stand Your Ground states flash over them.
