State Sen. Chris Smith, D-Fort Lauderdale, announces plans for a task force made up of current and former prosecutors and defense attorneys, to study Florida’s “Stand Your Ground” gun law, Tuesday, April 3, 2012 in Tallahassee, Fla. Smith said the state can’t wait for a blue ribbon commission Gov. Rick Scott appointed last month, which will study the self-defense statute but will wait for completion of legal work in the Trayvon Martin shooting. Smith said he wants to serve on the governor’s panel, but set up a Web site, “FloridaStandYourGround.org” for citizen comment and will convene a panel of legal minds in Fort Lauderdale on April 5 for his own inquiry into effects of the law.
