A new PSA from the Coalition to Stop Gun Violence shows a reenactment of the Trayvon Martin shooting using 911 audio from George Zimmerman and another witness from that night.

The ad doesn’t explicitly show the murder, and after the gunshots ring out the camera pans out to show dozens of victims of gun violence.

What do you think about this video?

    The video doesn't show Travon smashing Zimmerman head into the cement either-

    Support stand your ground laws, refuse to give criminals the advantage

    As the saying goes they should have told the truth, nothing but the truth and the whole truth. the 6'2" Martin attacked the 5'9" Zimmerman. Martin had Zimmerman pinned to the ground pounding Zimmerman's head on the pavement. This was not a stand your ground case it was a self defense case.

    This video is so dumb, all its doing is trying to do is make you feel sorry for the criminals. He was found innocent by a jury so let things go. If it was a black on black or white on white this would never hit the news. All the news people are doing is to make the is a racist deal & won't let it go…..total BA

    This video is fucking horse shit. It was proven in court the man was getting his head bashed into the concrete & defended himself. Stand your ground was NEVER even brought up. Whoever made this is a fucking idiot.

    No citizen should need a "stand your ground law" – everyone of us should know that Michael Bloomberg and the rest of his anti-intelligence Mayors have the best answers. Cower, run away, ask the criminal about his daddy issues, and my personal favorite for you ladies (seriously, this is actually what they recommend to women): pee your pants as it may "turn off" a potential rapist. What a crock of scat. Some thug attacks me? I defend myself if I, myself, determine that it is the best option at that time in that situation.
