No Special Session on Stand Your Ground

So much for a special session on Stand Your Ground. 

It appears that opponents of the law failed to rally sufficient support.

Democrats in the Florida Legislature want to repeal the controversial self-defense law. 

Representative Sean Shaw of Tampa says Republicans in state government are about the only ones who still support Stand Your Ground.

"No one likes it but the people in this building," he said. "Law enforcement doesn't like it, victims' groups don't like it, prosecutors don't like it. The only people that like it are the ones that have offices in this capitol building."

Democrats tried to force the issue by requesting a poll of every member in the state house and senate. 

But only one Republican agreed to a special session.
