Matt Gaetz ready to debate over Stand Your Ground

August 6, 2013

The Miami Herald reports that Rep. Matt Gaetz has agreed to a televised debate with Dream Defenders Director Phillip Agnew on Florida’s controversial Stand Your Ground law.

Agnew said he challenged Gaetz to a verbal duel late Sunday after spotting news reports that Gaetz wouldn’t support changing “one damn comma” in the self-defense law. Gaetz has been tapped by House Speaker Will Weatherford to hold a hearing on Stand Your Ground this fall.

Agnew’s Tweet to Gaetz:

@mattgaetz tv debate on #standyourground? I’m in the Capitol.
