    Interesting. I wonder if we should register the address and point it to this site in order to protect it from some anti group getting it. I'll send a note to their head man so he knows of the problem.

    I got a postcard from them this week about the runoff election. The candidate they supported won. I have to write him too.
    Seajay could you send our proposed bill in plain text to my email address?

    Looks like the site is back up. Doesn't seem to have much on the site. Anyone know the people involved in this organization? Is it a good use of $20 to join.

    Also the GFODL seems to now be the one that is defunct. It was a great source for info, but I could never figure out if it was an actual organization that you could join. Anyone know more about the GFODL and if it can be joined?

    Are there any other organized Georgia gun rights groups?

    I know of one coming soon, but it is still getting ducks in a row so that it can be the most effective voice in Georgia. I will post more as I know more.

    I only want to join if it's a secret society with a secret handshake. So don't go telling everyone in an open forum. :D

    I signed up for their email alerts over a year ago, but I have never received anything. It may be that they had no email alerts in that time, though, I do not know.

    Got an email!

    (Atlanta, March 13) -- You could lose new self-defense powers even before they become law.

    The SB 396 Self-Defense Powers bill passed the State Senate on Mar. 2. Now it's in the Georgia House which is loaded with suburban compromisers who've killed every pro-gun bill so far this year.

    Unofficial word is proceedings start this week in the House Judiciary (Non-Civil) Committee where anti-gunners are laying in wait to attack SB 396. You need to contact committee members immediately.

    Why is it vital?

    SB 396 lets you use deadly force when your life is in danger and:

    - you don't have to turn your back ("stand your ground")

    - gives you immunity from prosecution (so anti-gun officials can't punish you anyway with the cost of a trial)

    - bars criminals from suing you if you injure them as a result.

    Finally, there's a "good Samaritan" shield in case you have to shoot a criminal to stop a "forcible felony" (like rape). It's just common sense.

    Yet after Florida passed a weaker law last year, national anti-gun agitator Sarah Brady said, "I am in a state of shock."

    You may be shocked at what the anti-gunners and suburban compromisers do to your right to self-defense unless you get on the politicians.

    --

    Action Items:

    1. Unofficial word is a preliminary hearing will be held by House Judiciary Non-Civil Subcommittee One this week. This is crucial because it will set the tone for everything that follows. Pick one Democrat and one Republican closest to where you live, from the list below. Contact them and voice your support for SB 396 which strengthens your right to self-defense. Use your own wording or work off the pre-written message below. Deliver it by e-mail or phone their office. To make double-sure your message gets through, send it both ways:

    Name/Hometown/Office Phone/E-Mail

    Dear Rep. _____________

    I won't hesitate to use my gun for self-defense if I have to.

    I don't want to turn my back on an attacker. I don't want to be prosecuted by headline-grabbing officials for defending myself. I don't want to be sued by greedy lawyers if I have to take down a dangerous criminal.

    SB 396 stands strong for self-defense in Georgia. Please approve it without amendment.

    Sincerely, ______________

    Personally, I don't think it is very helpful to start off a letter to a representative that may be "on the fence," so to speak, with "I won't hesitate to use my gun for self-defense if I have to." :shock: Not a good first sentence.

    I also would not folow up with "I don't want to turn my back on an attacker . . ." since that is not require under the law now.

    Why are the terms of the debate things that do not exist?

    A gun organization should not be perpetuating these myths.

    There is no duty to retreat in Georgia law. This bill preserves Georgia law the way it has been since the 1700s. It ensures that a judiciary will not change it by inserting an affirmative declaration into the Code.

    The best parts of the bill are the civil and criminal immunities.
