Holder

In the wake of the Trayvon Martin case and George Zimmerman's verdict of not guilty -- Attorney General Eric Holder urges a review of state laws designed to protect people threatened by criminals.

FOX News Radio's Mike Majchrowitz reports from the White House:

Speaking to the NAACP, Attorney General Eric Holder gave no indication whether their probe of the Trayvon Martin case would bring federal charges against George Zimmerman. But he did call for a review of state "Stand Your Ground" laws which some blame for Martin's shooting death. Holder says such laws make violence worse by...

(Holder) "Eliminating the common sense and age-old requirement that people who feel threatened have a duty to retreat, outside their home, if they can do so safely."

White House Press Secretary Jay Carney also called for a review of such laws but without indicating where precisely the President stands.
