Delta’s Shine an Armor of Light on Stand Your Ground Law

By Elaine Mitchum – Members of Jacksonville Alumnae Chapter of Delta Sigma Theta attended the opening night of “Armor of Light”, a documentary produced by Abigail Disney that follows the journey of Reverend Rob Schenck, an evangelical minister who finds the courage to preach about the toll of gun violence in America. An anti-abortion activist, Schenck questions whether being pro-gun is consistent with being pro-life, much to the discomfort of his colleagues. He eventually meets Lucy McBath, also a Christian and the mother of Jordan Davis, an unarmed teenager who was murdered in Jacksonville, Florida and whose case has become a landmark in the fight against “Stand Your Ground” laws. Through their stories, intercut with revealing footage underlining the marriage between the religious right and the NRA, The Armor of Light asserts that even in the face of heartbreak, outrage, and political affiliations, it is possible for people to evolve their opinions, and potentially come together to find common ground.  The movie is currently airing at the AMC Theater in Orange Park and will air through Thursday, November 5th.
