Changes Proposed for Stand Your Ground Law
A Florida lawmaker has filed a bill revising the state's controversial stand-your-ground law in the wake of the Trayvon Martin shooting.
Under the proposed measure, people found to be the aggressor in altercations would not be able to seek protection under the self-defense law.
The bill would also allow law enforcement officers to investigate suspects who invoke the law under questionable circumstances.
