Sen. Bill Nelson: Stand-your-ground law should be ‘considerably tightened’

by George Bennett | July 25th, 2013

Democratic Sen. Bill Nelson told NBC’s Andrea Mitchell today that he backs changes to Florida’s “stand your ground” self-defense law.

Said Nelson: “I think the Florida law ought to be changed. I think where there are the extreme cases – for example, a guy gets into a fight, he leaves, goes to his car, gets a gun, and comes back and kills the person he was fighting – to use stand your ground in that circumstance is ridiculous.

“And yet, in 200 cases in my state of Florida, they go all over the waterfront as to how they’ve been adjudicated, and so I think the law needs to be considerably tightened. And since it’s in about two dozen states, you’re not going to wipe out the laws – maybe down the road we do need to change these and completely eliminate them – but in the meantime, they need to be severely constricted.”

MITCHELL: Senator Bill Nelson, thank you very much.

NELSON: Thanks, Andrea.
