State senator John Thrasher says he's open to lawmakers reviewing Florida's stand your ground law.
Thrasher says at this time he has received no overwhelming demand to review the law. However, he notes that once the legislative session begins there may be additional legislation headed his way.
Thrasher says Florida's stand your ground laws were previously reviewed under a special taskforce committee appointed by Governor Rick Scott. Former Lt. Governor Jennifer Carroll spearheaded the committee.
"They went around the state taking testimony and really offered no major changes to the stand your ground law," says Senator Thrasher.
However, he says he is open to reviewing the law once more.
"I think if there's a need to review some of the aspects of that particular law and there are some ways to make it stronger and better, then we ought to take a look at that."
Attorney General Eric Holder is criticizing the law. Holder suggests the law doesn't prevent violence but instead creates more violence.
"We must stand our ground to ensure that our laws reduce violence and take a hard look at laws that contribute to more violence than they prevent."
This all comes on the heels of the acquittal of George Zimmerman. However, Zimmerman's defense lawywers claimed self-defense in the shooting death of teenager Trayvon Martin. Holder says still, he is concerned about the acquittal and maintains the Department of Justice has an open investigation.
Thrasher says its possible lawmakers may review the law again but says it wont likely happen until the next legislative session.
