TALLAHASSEE, Fla. -- The family of a local teen shot and killed in a gas station parking lot are taking their fight for justice to the top. The parents of Jordan Davis spoke in Tallahassee Thursday during a hearing on "stand your ground."
Their day began at the Duval County Courthouse where a judge finally set the trial date for the man accused of killing their son.
"I do not wish this on any parent," said Jordan's mom Lucia McBath.

Not a day goes by McBath and Ron Davis don't think about their son. Jordan Davis was shot and killed during a fight over loud music at a Southside gas station.
"It's been the most difficult year of my life -- being inducted into this kind of club that no parent ever wants to be inducted into," McBath said.
Thursday, they said they took one step closer to justice. A judge set the trial date for Michael Dunn -- for Feb. 3.
In the meantime, the parents are on a mission. They think the "stand your ground" law needs serious review.
"It needs to be re-written," said Ron Davis.
A Florida house House subcommittee is looking into it. Jordan's parents and their attorney John Phillips testified Thursday during a packed-house hearing in Tallahassee.
"Florida is becoming the poster child of gun violence in this country country, and the laws and the way that they're written leave too much open to chance," said McBath.
They know nothing will change Thursday. But they said being there and sharing their story can't hurt.
"Maybe we can touch one or two hearts in there so next time it comes up for a vote maybe it will change their mind," Ron Davis said.
There is also another side to this story -- many aren't in favor of a new "stand your ground" law. Supporters of the current law said the law in place is good and should not be changed.
Michael Dunn's attorney has not released yet whether they will claim "stand your ground" as their defense in this case.
