Massad Ayoob talking about stand your ground and 21 foot rule

Massad Ayoob, Firearms Trainer, author of "In the Gravest Extreme". Since the tragic shooting death of Trayvon Martin, Florida's Stand Your Ground law has come under intense scrutiny. Florida governor Rick Scott is presently forming a task force to reexamine that state's law. Critics argue that such laws have led to shootouts over petty disputes and have hampered police investigations with a sweeping grant of legal immunity.
