Ben Crump, the attorney for the Trayvon Martin family, joined Roland Martin this morning urging people to be aware of the states where the "Stand Your Ground" law is on the ballot this upcoming November. Here's the full list of the states below:
States that had Stand Your Ground Laws:
13. New Hampshire
18. S. Dakota
23. West Virginia
States have Passed SYG Laws Since the shooting:
29. Rhode Island
States that have Proposed SYG Laws on the Ballot for November:
38. New York
States that have State Representatives that Proposed SYG Laws, but didn’t make The Ballot this time:
44. New Mexico
45. Washington D.C.
Is your state on the list? Crump wants voters to be aware of the potential impact of having a "Stand Your Ground" law enacted in your state. The Martin family is also an advocate against the law because they do not want other families to have to undergo what they did with the death of their son Trayvon Martin.
