NRA Says Holder Exploiting Trayvon Martin Death

The National Rifle Association accused Attorney General Eric Holder of exploiting the death of Trayvon Martin to push the Obama administration's gun-control agenda by calling for a review of "stand-your-ground" laws, The Hill reports.

Said NRA executive director Chris Cox: "The attorney general fails to understand that self-defense is not a concept, it's a fundamental human right. To send a message that legitimate self-defense is to blame is unconscionable, and demonstrates once again that this administration will exploit tragedies to push their political agenda."
