Sanford police chief bans guns in neighborhood watch after Zimmerman case

More than a year-and-a half after George Zimmerman shot and killed 17-year-old Trayvon Martin, the Sanford police chief is shaking things up, making changes to the controversial neighborhood watch program where Zimmerman volunteered.

Zimmerman was acquitted of second-degree murder last July in the controversial case that spurred a national discussion on guns, self-defense and excessive force.

David Mattingly is Outfront with the story.
