Parents of two black teenagers whose killings sparked heated criticism of Florida's "stand your ground" law marched on the state Capitol on Monday, warning legislators of a political backlash unless they reform the statue. "Florida is failing us," said Sybrina Fulton, the mother of Trayvon Martin, whose fatal shooting in 2012 led to the murder trial and subsequent acquittal of former neighborhood watch patrol guard George Zimmerman. A bill to repeal the 2005 self-defense law, which allows Floridians to use deadly force when they think their lives are in danger, was rejected late last year by a House committee.
