LOS ANGELES, Dec. 13, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- New details in the purportedly accidental shooting death of Renisha McBride have provoked state lawmakers across the nation to resume conversations about the value of so-called "Stand Your Ground" gun laws. Cameron Brock, a wrongful death attorney and founder of the Law Offices of Burg & Brock, has been an outspoken advocate of repealing gun laws that invite confrontations like the one that occurred in Dearborn, Michigan in early November. As a successful personal injury lawyer in Los Angeles, Brock has seen his fair share of wrongful death cases, and understands the personal toll tragedies like this take on the families of shooting victims. With experience in a wide range of practice areas—including vehicle accidents, product liability, dog bites and more—Los Angeles motorcycle accident attorney Cameron Brock is one of the Southland's leading legal defenders of accident victims.  

McBride, a 19-year-old Detroit woman, was shot and killed one month ago by homeowner Theodore Wafer when McBride approached his house in the middle of the night seeking help after being injured in a car accident. Speaking about the racial overtones of the incident that cropped up in news stories about the shooting, Cameron Brock commented: "Whether the McBride shooting was racially motivated or not, what seems clear is that these kinds of events increase racial tensions that don't benefit anyone in our country. My hope is that taking a second look at ineffectual gun laws can be a positive first step toward increasing public safety and easing racial tensions in our community."
