Florida Gov. Rick Scott met with protestors at the State Capitol in Tallahassee last night.

The protestors are urging Gov. Scott to call a special session to make changes to the state’s Stand Your Ground Law.

He listed to their demands but told them he would not call the legislature into special session.

"Listen to the people that are here. Really think about what's a better way forward and what's a true way to honor in both words and actions the life and the death of a young man that died under your watch," said Phillip Agnew of the Dream Defenders.

Gov. Scott responded with, "I don't believe right now that Stand Your Ground should be changed but I'll tell you right now that I appreciate you and I look forward to seeing you again."
