Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) said Sunday that his home state should review its "stand-your-ground" law, which is similar to the Florida statute that applied in the shooting death of Florida teen Trayvon Martin.
Speaking on CNN's "State of the Union," McCain said the law "may be something that needs to be reviewed" and that he is confident the Arizona legislature will do so.
McCain said he did not share the view of Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Tex.), who has suggested President Obama's remarks on "stand-your-ground" laws represented an attempt to push for stricter gun-control laws.
"I respect his view, but I don’t frankly see the connection," McCain said.
