No tragedy is too big or small for Schumer to exploit to get his face in front of a camera.
New York Sen. Chuck Schumer is calling for hearings into Florida’s controversial “Stand Your Ground” law in the wake of the killing of teenager Trayvon Martin.
Appearing on CBS’s “Face the Nation” Sunday, the Democratic senator argued that the law, which empowers a person to use deadly force when he or she is under serious threat, impeded investigations into killings like Martin’s. George Zimmerman, a neighborhood watchman who shot Martin, has held that he’s protected under the law.
“I think we should examine this law,” Schumer said.
