Georgia Civilian Use of Deadly Force, facts without feeellllinnngggssss:

Defense of property other than habitation; Lethal force cannot be used to protect real property unless the person using such force reasonably believes that it is necessary to prevent the commission of a forcible felony.(16-3-24)

(Stand Your Ground/Shoot First/License To Murder - went into effect July 1st, 2006) If you have determined you need to use lethal force (as stated in one of the underlined "Defense" sections immediately above) you do not have to try to retreat before using that force. If your defense is valid, you are immune from criminal prosecution (unless it is illegal to carry that weapon where you used it) and civil liability actions.(16-3-23.1, 16-3-24.2, 51-11-9)

This was posted to a nice naive unarmed libeal lady who babbled about Georgia beig like "the wild west" and crackers being allowed to shoot at tresspassers outside their homes or roaming with guns for property defense and fun. NO! This is covered in every CCW class, even when not asked by bumbasses who heard and learned from dads and grandads and coworkers and pals. Ohio CCW is not recognized by the state of Georgia.
