Andrew Gillum Says Florida Is Not Safe for All While 'Stand Your Ground' Law Exists

Andrew Gillum called on Florida Gov. Rick Scott to declare a “state of emergency” after Markeis McGlockton was killed by gunfire this July. His killer, Michael Drejka, claimed he fired in self-defense after a parking lot dispute and initially dodged arrest under Florida’s “stand your ground” law. This incident brought the controversial law back into the spotlight, years after the killing of Trayvon Martin.

See this is what FLA voters going for Gillum in the polls are reacting to. The man doesn’t mince words, he doesn’t talk in circles about things that need fixing. We all already know how hard it will be to stop Stand your Ground laws, and we know we can’t just snap our fingers and get medicare for all, but it’s important that our leaders make it their goal, and fight for those goals.

He’s frank and blunt about whats in front of us, and you can’t solve anything by pretending to be on both sides of every issue.
