Ted Cruz on Stand Your Ground Laws

In recent days, the media has repeatedly reported the story regarding Trayvon Martin's mother speaking out against Stand Your Ground laws. Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX) took issue with her remarks. Many in the media think that self-defense laws are biased against minorities. This is what irks Cruz.

Cruz mentioned the fact that African-Americans suffer a great deal from violent crimes. This minority group often declares that it has a right to self-defense and they rightfully should be able to defend themselves and their families.

Read what Cruz said... Trayvon Martin case tainted by politics.
