In this June 3, 2010 file photo, a woman holds a votive candle with an image of Anastasio Hernandez during a protest at the San Ysidro border crossing that separates Tijuana from San Diego, in Tijuana, Mexico. A federal judge tentatively approved an agreement Thursday, March 2, 2017, for the U.S. government to pay $1 million to the children of Hernandez, who died after being detained by immigration authorities and shot several times with a stun gun in 2010. The settlement is intended to end a nearly 7-year case that prompted widespread complaints that U.S. immigration authorities tolerated agents who use excessive force. (AP Photo, File)

In this Oct. 21, 2002 file photo, National Rifle Association President Charlton Heston holds up a rifle as he addresses gun owners during a "get-out-the-vote" rally in Manchester, N.H. A Philadelphia judge's clash with the late actor has indirectly led to a U.S. appeals court decision to overturn a 1998 murder conviction. The judge met with the victim's family during the bench trial to discuss a blog they started that noted the "Ben-Hur" actor had called her soft on crime in an NRA speech in Philadelphia. The U.S. appeals court threw out the murder conviction last week, saying the meeting was inappropriate and the defense lawyer ineffective. (AP Photo/Jim Cole, File)

In this Sept. 13, 2016 file photo, George Zimmerman looks at the jury as he testifies in a Seminole County courtroom in Orlando, Fla. Florida doesn't just want to let people stand their ground, it also wants to make the state prove they didn't commit violence in self-defense before taking them to trial. While at least 22 states have similar laws that say people can use force — even deadly force — to defend themselves from threats, Florida could soon be the only one that spells out that prosecutors have to prove defendants weren't acting in self-defense before taking someone to trial.(Red Huber/Orlando Sentinel via AP, Pool)
