Stand Your Ground Upheld In Florida Despite Efforts Of Obama’s DOJ

Florida lawmakers have repudiated the Dream Defenders and supporters of Trayvon Martin who tried to get Stand Your Ground overturned in the state.

The Florida House Subcommittee on Criminal Justice voted overwhelmingly on Thursday to not only defend the self-defense law, but expand it.

“Stand your ground is core to the American way of life,” Republican State Rep. Jimmie T. Smith said, MSNBC reports.

“I don’t support changing one damn comma of the stand your ground law,”said State Rep. Matt Gaetz in August. Gaetz oversaw Thursday’s subcommittee hearing on the law. Around 300 people attended the hearing.
