I heard something on WSB about the city of Roswell enacting an ordinance to prevent use of a firearm in defense of property... :evil:

Anybody have any details on this?

Roswell {area 51}

Deadly force is only justfied in the case where a reasonable pearson is in fear of death or serious bodly harm. You can't waste um for stealing the hub caps off your Chevy.

Under GA law, your motor vehicle is considered a habitation like your house or place of business.

IIRC, See O.C.G.A. 16-3-20 - 16-3-23

The only thing I can think of that this ordinance would cover would be something like catching someone red handed with your property and you shoot at or near them to scare them away/drop the property.

Such as someone stealing something out of your yard. You cant come outside and start blasting away. (though I think a State law already covers this)

One thing I have learned is that the local officials typically don't know or don't obey the state code, and the media doesn't know or care to find out.

After the courthouse shooting in March, several counties were "looking into" banning citizens from bringing firearms into courthouses. Too bad the state already beat them too it.
I also saw on the Atlanta news that my county's courthouse was going to install a metal detector at the entrance, I guess it is going beside the current metal detector that has been there for 3 years.

Deadly weapons

It is aimed primarily a bow hunters. Some guy shot a deer in his back yard and it ran into a neighbors yard to die. She was very upset.

They tabled the bill to consider the wording. It seems the camo coalilition been all over them for this. They have more clout than we do.
check them out at www.gwf.org/camo.htm

This proves that some things are just a matter of perspective. She looks at the dead deer and feels sad. I on the other hand am a glass-half-full kinda guy; I look at the dead deer feel like its time to fire up the grill and call some friends. :D

Total Agreement

I totaly agree with you. Free meat! But this is from a guy who has used a pickup truck to tenderize a deer before.
