Obama Calls For Review Of U.S. Self-Defense Laws

WASHINGTON (AFP) – President Barack Obama on Friday called for a review of state “stand your ground” laws in the wake of the acquittal of the Florida neighborhood watch volunteer who shot dead an unarmed black teen.

Obama hailed the “incredible grace and dignity” of slain teen Trayvon Martin’s parents and warned that a resort to violence in the wake of the court verdict would “dishonor” his death.
