The law many say has kept 17 year-old Trayvon Martin's shooter, George Zimmerman, from being arrested, may soon find its way into Springfield's spotlight, again.
Last week, Illinois State representative Rich Morthland from the Quad Cities said he plans to reintroduce a "Stand Your Ground" style bill to the House.
This after one like it failed in Springfield last month.
Some here in Peoria are speaking out against the possibility, likening it to another looming political issue in Illinois: "Concealed Carry."
"When you carry that thing on your hip, you feel like you've got to use it, especially if you're some guy that's always wanted to be a law enforcement officer and could not quite make it. Those are dangerous people that are going to be empowered to carry weapons that can kill people," said Peoria's NAACP President Don Jackson.
Florida is among 21 states in the US that currently has a "Stand Your Ground" law.
