Defending Yourself is Legal in Georgia

You knew it would be. Suspect Shot In Overnight DeKalb Home Invasion - Atlanta News Story - WGCL Atlanta
The homeowner caught the two intruders in the act, police said. The robbers and the man who lives in the house exchanged gunfire. One of the invaders was struck. Both burglars ran, police said, but one collapsed in a neighbor’s yard. An emergency crew rushed him to the hospital. Police place him under arrest.
The homeowner was unharmed. The guy who got shot is in stable condition. The guy who got away is still on the run.

The neighbors were not shocked, as they usually are. The response seems to be along the lines of, "he got what he deserved."

The homeowner will not face any charges, because self-defense is not just a human-right, in Georgia, it is your legal right as well.
