ALEC Pulls Back Support for "Stand Your Ground" Laws


Hardball with Chris Matthews, April 18, 2012 -- The controversial conservative lobbying group ALEC is ending its work on non-economic issues, including pro-gun laws like Florida's "Stand Your Ground" law. Lisa Graves, Executive Director of the Center for Media and Democracy, and Salon's Steve Kornacki discuss the potential impact of ALEC's move, and whether states will rethink Stand Your Ground laws in light of the shooting death of Trayvon Martin.
