Sen. John McCain supports President Obama’s call to reexamine ‘stand your ground’ laws

Sen. John McCain says he supports reevaluating so-called “Stand Your Ground” laws in light of the Trayvon Martin/George Zimmerman murder trial:

“The ‘stand your ground’ law may be something that may 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” Sunday, two days after President Obama discussed Zimmerman’s acquittal in the killing of Trayvon Martin.

The Arizona Republican said he thinks the self-defense law should be reviewed in his home state, too. “I’m confident that the members of the Arizona legislature will, because it is very controversial legislation,” McCain said. Florida and Arizona are among 30 states with “stand your ground” laws on the books.
