Stand Your Ground task force holds final meeting
Task force created after fatal shooting of Trayvon Martin
A Florida task force charged with reviewing the state's "stand your ground" law is holding its final meeting in Pensacola.
Task force members said Tuesday they want to make sure Floridians have a right to defend themselves under the law regardless of immigration status. The group gathered in Pensacola following a series of meetings around the state.
They're charged with making recommendations to Gov. Rick Scott about possible changes to the law. The group was created after the fatal shooting in February of unarmed 17-year-old Trayvon Marin by neighborhood watch volunteer George Zimmerman.
Zimmerman has pleaded not guilty to second-degree murder and claims he was defending himself under the law. The shooting caused public outrage and raised questions about the law.
