Here's a sample message to send to your friends:

I just signed this, you should too.

The result of the George Zimmerman case forces us to confront a painful question: What does the Rule of Law mean when it lets people get away with murder?

Trayvon Martin was an unarmed teenager walking home who was first stalked and then shot dead by a self-appointed vigilante.

As sad as this senseless tragedy is, what's worse is knowing that the dangerous trifecta of endemic racism, lax gun regulations and "Shoot First" laws (also known as "Stand Your Ground" laws) virtually ensures that Trayvon Martin will not be the last child in this country murdered with impunity by a gun-toting vigilante.

It may be too late to hold George Zimmerman accountable. But we must push to change the law to make sure that future Zimmermans don't go free.

I just signed a petition telling elected officials across the country that it's time to undo dangerous Shoot First laws. I hope you sign it, too.
