JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- Almost two months after their 17-year-old son was shot to death at a gas station on Southside Boulevard, Ron Davis and Lucia McBath have taken their fight for justice to the nation's capital.
Davis and McBath have become strong voices in the debate over guns. They recently returned home from Washington D.C. where they met with congressional leaders.
"I stood next to Nancy Pelosi and I showed her the 'Jet' magazine that had the picture of Jordan Davis on the cover and she actually just teared up and she hugged me," said Ron Davis, Jordan's father.
One of the goals tthe parents hope to accomplish is to get lawmakers to take another look at the controversial Stand Your Ground law.
"We want it rewritten. If you need a Stand Your Ground law, we want it rewritten," said Davis.
Davis hopes that by putting a face to a crime, Washington lawmakers will do something about gun violence in our country.
"There were about 60 congressional leaders there, and they see us and they see our tears and they understand that this is not something they read in the paper," said Davis.
Davis' attorney John Phillips tells Action News they are planning to file a wrongful death lawsuit against suspect Michael Dunn by the end of January.
