The Coalition to Stop Gun Violence released a controversial PSA targeting ‘Stand Your Ground’ laws.
Oklahoma is one of 26 states with a stand your ground law.
The PSA re-enacts the shooting death of Trayvon Martin, complete with the actual 911 call from the night the Florida teen was shot and killed by George Zimmerman.
The final seconds of the PSA call on viewers to take action by signing a petition against stand your ground laws.
Zimmerman was acquitted in Martin’s death.
The group says the ad was created in an effort to educate the public about the danger of these self-defense laws.
