Governor Scott's Response to Stand Your Ground Law
Governor Rick Scott met with a group of protestors who had been sitting in his office for three days.
The protest was triggered by anger over the acquittal of George Zimmerman.
Governor Scott told the group he won't ask lawmakers to revise the state's self-defense laws.
He explained he put together a task force of individuals who traveled the state and listened to citizens and experts.
The task force concluded the law did not need to be changed, and Governor Scott agreed.
He says he'll call for a day of unity on Sunday.
