The Gainesville Times has record of a home-invasion in West Hall County. There is a section for comments at the end of the article. One respondent says the DA office told him that home-owners cannot defend themselves, under GA law, unless they are attacked first. Am I correct is thinking that the DA office is incorrect and that GA law allows the home-owner to defend themselves without being a victim first? Does GA not have a Castle Doctrine, whereas the home-owner can protect self and family without first being a victim?
