Oct. 29, 2013 -- Rep. Luis V. Gutiérrez (D-IL) was one of several witnesses called before the Senate Judiciary Subcommittee on the Constitution, Civil Rights and Human Rights, Chaired by Illinois Senator Richard Durbin. The hearing concerned "stand your ground" laws like those in Florida and more than 20 other states that were a central issue in the shooting death of teenager Trayvon Martin. Mr. Martin's mother was among those who testified. Rep. Gutiérrez said "The fundamental problem is Americans are so afraid of other Americans that they feel they must arm themselves. The gun lobby is pushing to reshape our laws to make this practice more socially and legally acceptable." close
