McCain: Stand Your Ground Laws Should Be Reviewed

by Katrina Trinko

John McCain urged all states with Stand Your Ground laws to review them in the aftermath of the George Zimmerman trial.

“I can also see that Stand Your Ground law may be something that needs to be reviewed by the Florida legislature or any other legislature that has passed such legislation,” McCain said on CNN’s State of the Union this morning.

He said that he was “confident” Arizona state legislators would look at the law again “because it is a very controversial legislation.”

President Obama called for an examination of Stand Your Ground laws in his remarks on Trayvon Martin last week.
