State Votes Today on FL Stand Your Ground Law

Florida lawmakers are expected to vote on the state's “Stand Your Ground” law.

A house committee has scheduled a five hour hearing for today to consider two bills dealing with guns.

One of those would repeal the state's “Stand Your Ground” law.

The bill is sponsored by Tallahassee Representative Alan Williams.

House republicans are expected to vote it down.

The House committee is also scheduled to take up a separate measure that would let people fire warning shots to avoid being charged under Florida’s 10 to 20 life sentencing law.
