Governor speaks with protestors

TALLAHASSEE   --  After three days of waiting, a group of protesters in Tallahassee got the chance to talk to Governor Rick Scott last night.
   
The Dream Defenders have been holding a sit-in at the governor's office.
They were demanding that changes be made to the "Stand your Ground" law.
   
The governor had been out of town on business.
He arrived back in Tallahassee last night, and sat down with the group.
   
They talked for about 45 minutes.
In the end, he said he has no plans to call a special session on the Stand your Ground law.
 
"I'm not going to call a special session. I do not believe right now Stand Your Ground should be changed. But, I can tell you how I appreciate you."
   
The protestors say they will continue their sit-in for as long as needed until the governor calls a special session of the legislature.

They also plan on contacting their lawmakers, to urge a change with the law.
