    Stand your Ground Laws = Fear in me

     

    CNN PRODUCER NOTE     Riokay submitted this iReport using the new video commenting feature (linked on this story). He says he's not sure if Trayvon Martin's killing was racially motivated, but the idea of "stand your ground" gun laws scares him. 'I just definitely feel like it's a scary thing. As an African American I could be walking home from a bar somewhere late at night and someone could look at me and shoot me and not be prosecuted to the full extent of the law because of this rule.'
    - nsaidi, CNN iReport producer
