See, that's exactly the issue. "Why did Lucas feel like he had to change it?" is the question all of us Han-Shot-Firsters have been asking.
The way you phrase this, it sounds like you think the change was from "Greedo shot first" to "Han shot first" rather than the other way around.

I should clarify that. The "it doesn't matter" is what makes it sound like that; because, well, it does matter. It matters because it's one of the ways in which the "Special Editions" devalue the movies.
What I meant to question was why George Lucas felt he had to change it...

Greedo was holding a weapon on him, and Han shot first.
If someone was pointing a weapon at me, and I had the ability to, I'd shoot first, too...much better than being dead.
