Florida: Proposal to ask for a repeal of Stand Your Ground leads to recall discussion in Sarasota

A proposal to repeal the "Stand Your Ground" statue has led to discussion of a recall attempts against Sarasota Vice Mayor Willie Shaw and two commissioners, Suzanne Atwell and Suan Chapman.

The proposal won't actually have any effect on the law -- it is a request from the city commission to the state legislature to repeal "Stand Your Ground."  The person focused on the recall is referred to as a "Republican gadfly" in the article (though that might not mean much in terms of success rate for recalls). Local NRA officials said the reporter contact was the first they heard of the discussion.
