Fla. Gov. Wants ‘Stand Your Ground’ Law Review

Florida Gov. Rick Scott on Thursday named 17 members to a commission charged with examining the merits of the state’s controversial “Stand Your Ground” self-defense law, The Miami Herald reported.

The Task Force on Citizen Safety and Protection was created after the law came under fire as authorities waited over six weeks to arrest George Zimmerman in the shooting death of Trayvon Martin. The interval sparked national protests about perceived racial injustice and numerous calls by civil rights activists to repeal “Stand Your Ground.”

Zimmerman has admitted to shooting the unarmed Martin on Feb. 26, but claims he was acting in self-defense while serving as a neighborhood watchman for a gated community in Sanford, an Orlando suburb.

Florida’s “Stand Your Ground” law allows a person to use deadly force to prevent imminent death or great bodily harm without first attempting to retreat.-[source]
