VIDEO: US Sen. Dick Durbin (D-IL) Opens Senate Stand-Your-Ground Hearings

US Senator Dick Durvin (D-IL)

At the time I wrote that post I had only limited video available to share with everyone.  Since then I’ve been working my way through the full-length video, and as I get it formatted, edited, and uploaded to the Law of Self Defense Youtube page I’ll post notices here.

Right now I’ve got the opening remarks of Chairman Dick Durbin, US Senator (D-IL):

Keep your eyes open for notices here when I get the others up. Next in line: US Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX).
