As Predicted, Holder Uses Trayvon Martin to Shill Anti-Gun Rhetoric

Posted on July 16, 2013

It did not take Attorney General Eric Holder long to call for an end to Stand Your Ground laws after the George Zimmerman acquittal.  At least he had the decency to admit that the Trayvon Martin case had absolutely nothing to do with the stand your ground defense:

“Separate and apart from the case that has drawn the nation’s attention, it’s time to question laws that senselessly expand the concept of self-defense and sow dangerous conflict in our neighborhoods. (Cheers, applause.) These laws try to fix something that was never broken. There has always been a legal defense for using deadly force if — and the “if” is important — if no safe retreat is available.”  Attorney General Eric Holder speaking to NAACP Convention July 16, 2013

Of course, most people will not see the disconnect between the Trayvon Martin shooting and stand your ground laws.  As a politician first and a law enforcement officer second, Eric Holder knows this and that is precisely why he chose this crowd to make this pitch.  You see, the Attorney General of the United States has somewhat of an obligation to demonstrate some level of understanding of the case.  Those to whom he is speaking do not.  AG Holder knows that they will return to their communities throughout the nation and the message will be “repeal stand your ground for Trayvon.”
