Letter: ‘Stand your ground’ will haunt us

July 18, 2013 

George Zimmerman shot young Trayvon Martin last year  and Florida let him get away with murder a few days ago. The Alaska Legislature passed the Stand Your Ground law a few months ago and Gov. Parnell signed the bill into law at a Palmer shooting range a few weeks ago. How bloody will Alaska’s hands be a few years from now?
