Sen. John McCain said Sunday that states, including Florida and his home state of Arizona, should review their “stand your ground” laws. "The 'stand your ground' law may be something that may need to be reviewed by the Florida legislature or any other legislature that has passed such legislation," McCain said on CNN.
When asked directly whether Arizona should review the law, McCain said: “Yes, I do.” He then said he was “confident that the members of the Arizona legislature will, because it is very controversial legislation.” Arizona is one of 30 states with laws that give individuals the right to use force in self-defense without an obligation of trying to retreat first.
McCain also said that President Obama’s highly personal speech on Friday about race relations was “very impressive.” While the country has made progress on race relations, the Trayvon Martin case “highlighted the differences that remain,” McCain added.
