Weatherford Calls For Hearing on Stand Your Ground
Florida House Speaker Will Weatherford has asked the Criminal Justice Committee to hold a hearing on the "Stand Your Ground" law.
However, he said, it’s appropriate for the Legislature to answer questions including: ” Does the law keep the innocent safer? Is it being applied fairly? Are there ways we can make this law clearer and more understandable?”Weatherford will not call a special session on "Stand Your Ground." I don't expect this hearing to produce any results that would lead to the repeal on SYG.I think Weatherford's call for a hearing is more a response to the political pressure applied by the Dream Defenders.
