DURATION: 1:31SENATE TV - AP CLIENTS ONLYWashington DC - October 29, 20131. SOUNDBITE: (English) Sybrina Fulton, Trayvon Martin's mother:"I just wanted to come here to talk to you for a moment to let you know how important it is that we amend this stand your ground because it did not, certainly did not work in my case. The person that shot and killed my son is walking the streets today, and this law does not work. We need to seriously take a look at this law. We need to seriously speak with the state attorney's office, the police departments, more attorneys. We need to do something about this law when our kids cannot feel safe in their own community."2. White flash3. SOUNDBITE: (English) Sybrina Fulton, Trayvon Martin's mother:"Trayvon was minding his own business. He was not looking for any type of trouble. He was not committing any crime, and that's important to remember that the things that surround the tragedy that happened are most important. At the time that this happened to him, he was on a telephone call with a young lady from Miami. That shows his mentality. That shows that he was not looking for trouble. He was not the criminal that some people have tried to make him out to be."STORYLINE:Senate Republicans and Democrats are debating the merits of state stand your ground laws, with Democrats urging a review and Republicans saying the policy is a matter of self-defense.Trayvon Martin's mother, Sybrina Fulton, testified before a Senate committee in Washington, asking the panel to change the laws."I just wanted to come here to talk to you for a moment to let you know how important it is that we amend this stand your ground because it did not, certainly did not work in my case," said Fulton. "The person that shot and killed my son is walking the streets today."At least 22 states have some form of the law, which generally cancels a person's duty to retreat in the face of a serious physical threat.The 17-year-old Martin, who was unarmed, was shot in 2012. "At the time that this happened to him, he was on a telephone call with a young lady from Miami," Fulton told the committee. "That shows his mentality. That shows that he was not looking for trouble. He was not the criminal that some people have tried to make him out to be."A jury acquitted George Zimmerman earlier this year, sparking racial tension and debate over the laws.
