    U.S. Law Shield is presenting another gun law seminar, at Adventure Outdoors, Saturday July 14th, 2018, 10:30 am to 1:30 pm.

    We have a special guest speaker, IraqVeteran8888, AKA Eric Blandford, who will be speaking to the seminar. If any of you are a fan of IV8888 and his YouTube videos, here's a chance to hear him and meet him (and Chad) in person.

    The seminar will be led by the lead program attorney, Matt Kilgo. He'll be discussing use of force, interactions with law enforcement, and considerations for travelling with a firearm. We'll have light refreshments, and there will be some free giveaways to a few lucky attendees. And the seminar is free.

    Bonus: We'll have a GeorgiaCarry.org table in the store. Come on down to enjoy the seminar, renew your membership, or sign up as a new member if you haven't yet!

    To anybody attending this seminar:

    Could somebody ask a question and get attorney Kilgo's opinion on this--

    Under the "defense of habitation" law, 16-3-23, specifically paragraph #3 in that Code section, where it talks about deadly force being authorized IF
    "The person using such force reasonably believes that the entry is made or attempted for the purpose of committing a felony therein and that such force is necessary to prevent the commission of the felony."

    Does this mean that the burglar of a home, intending only to steal stuff from it, or a felon entering a parked automobile to steal from it (entering an auto is a felony crime), can be shot at that point if shooting him reasonably appears to be the only effective and practical way of stopping the crime?

    Or, must the armed citizen reasonably believe that some SECOND felony crime is on the intruder's mind? The first felony would be "complete" and committed in the eyes of the law as soon as the intruder reached into the house or car, so must there be some other felony, a different crime, that you think the intruder is about to do before you can use deadly force?

    It went very well. The only downside was, light attendance. But hey...it's in the middle of summer vacation.
