Rep. Harvey Santana, a Detroit Democrat, said legislative hearings should be convened in Lansing. He said if changes are needed to Michigan law, the public and experts should have a say.
Michigan's self-defense law was passed in 2006 and signed by then-Gov. Jennifer Granholm.
Democrats introduced legislation last year to repeal the law after Martin's death, but it went nowhere.
A spokesman for Republican House Speaker Jase Bolger said legislators will continue to apply "common sense" so citizens can defend themselves. He said Santana is free to propose new legislation so it can go through the committee process.
