Tallahassee, FL - 83 lawmakers in Florida have said 'no' to calling a special session addressing the 'Stand Your Ground' law. ..

The polling process-- asking lawmakers if they support a special session addressing the stand your ground law - kicked off earlier this week. Each day the chances of a session being called move closer to being mathematically impossible.

Ahmad Abuznaid, Dream Defender: "For us, it was all about a measure of leaving no stones unturned."

Gov. Rick Scott: "I'm not going to call a special session. I don't believe right now the Stand Your Ground law should be changed."

Session or not - the group says its staying put.
More supporters are expected over the next couple of weeks as tens of thousands of college students' return to the state capital.
