This makes me sick! How can they vote no on that??? What would they do if someone invaded their home? They wouldn't want the right to kill? I guess I'd just be spending some time in jail, because if someone breaks in on me and I'm in the house, they are a dead man. Guess I'd be better off not being tried in a Clayton County courtroom though, they'd take one look at my skin color and deem me as racist and throw the book at me... some kinda sick, twisted version of vengeance.

....Before This State Law was passed; The Resident would have submit proof that life threaten danger existed, order to deploy self defense.

...Before this law was passed; I knew of one case, when the homeowner hid under his bed and shot the burglar has the burglar enter the room. The homeowner was charge.
