Trayvon Martin Breaking News: McCain Joins Obama in Calling for Review of 'Stand Your Ground' Laws


Sen. John McCain, Ariz., a prominent Republican who's been known to break ranks with fellow members of the GOP at times, urged state legislatures to review Stand Your Ground laws in the wake of the Zimmerman trial, which became a national flashpoint for race relations in America.

Despite an outcry from civil rights groups, a call for close examination by President Barack Obama and even a 1960s-style sit-in at the Florida governor's office, the jury's verdict that George Zimmerman was justified in shooting unarmed teenager Trayvon Martin is unlikely to spur change to any of the nation's stand-your-ground self-defense laws.

While performing the Legends of Summer Tour alongside Justin Timberlake, Jay Z gave a heartfelt shout-out before performing Forever Young in tribute to Trayvon Martin who was shot to death by George Zimmerman
