The Florida House Subcommittee on Criminal Justice also voted down the Democrat-backed measure to repeal the law altogether. The vote comes after the acquittal of George Zimmerman, in the shooting death of unarmed 17-year old Trayvon Martin. "Stand your ground" became a hotly contested issue during the George Zimmerman case, even though Zimmerman never claimed the law as a defense.
The Dream Defenders, the protest group that took over the Florida Capitol in August after the George Zimmerman verdict, vowed to never forget those who voted against the repeal.
“We will remember those who chose an aggressive approach to the cancer that afflicts our state, and those that chose to keep the money in their pockets,” said Philip Agnew.
Many high school students spoke out in favor of the repeal bill, with young black men explaining that they felt it put their lives in danger. Repeal opponents focused primarily on the importance of the right to defend oneself against an attacker.
