Thats a good one. Any armed serious violent felony get 10 years. Done in full before any other sentence begins.

Sooo..... You and your neighbor get into a pissing contest, and you put a finger into his chest to tell him to back off. Assault and battery, 5 years mandatory because you had your pocketknife or carry pistol on you while you did this: "(1) Any crime against or involving the person of another" plus time for the assault and battery.

Something like this could end up being abused by a LOT of the DA's in various counties in Georgia.

OWM, while I agree with your distaste, I feel compelled to point out that the language you discuss is not a part of this bill. That is current law.

When reading bills, plain text is already law. Strike throughs are things that the bill will remove. Underlines are things that the bill will add.

So, if you read OCGA 16-11-106, you will see that the part against which you protest is already a part of the statute. 2020 Georgia Code :: Title 16 - Crimes and Offenses :: Chapter 11 - Offenses Against Public Order and Safety :: Article 4 - Dangerous Instrumentalities and Practices :: Part 1 - General Provisions :: § 16-11-106. Possession of Firearm or Knife During Commission of or Attempt to Commit Certain Crimes
