Georgia gun rights group wants suit over stand-your-ground law dismissed [View all]

http://www.ajc.com/news/georgia-government/georgia-gun-rights-group-1423028.html

The gun rights group GeorgiaCarry.org has asked that a lawsuit challenging Georgia's so-called stand-your-ground law be thrown out. If the federal lawsuit continues, the group wants to intervene to oppose it.

GeorgiaCarry asked Friday that the suit be dismissed, arguing that the Rev. Markel Hutchins, who filed it, did not have standing to bring suit because he had not been harmed by the law covering justifiable homicide.

"Instead, he vaguely claims that the so-called 'stand your ground law' exposes him to ‘risk of arbitrary enforcement,'" GeorgiaCarry wrote. "He only speculates that he may someday experience the effects of the statute."

Hutchins filed the federal lawsuit April 9, claiming the Georgia statute is vague about "what actions would create ‘reasonable belief' that deadly force is necessary." He said he was filing it on behalf of all Georgians, especially those who might suffer from the law because of racial profiling.
