Poll: Voters support ‘stand your ground’

{mosads}“Stand your ground” laws have been in the spotlight in recent weeks in the wake of last month’s acquittal of George Zimmerman, a Florida neighborhood watchman, in the shooting death of 17-year-old Trayvon Martin.

Following the verdict, several lawmakers urged states to review the laws. The Justice Department announced it would consider bringing a federal civil rights case against Zimmerman, while President Obama said the laws need to be re-examined.
