    Felony murder rule, Ga., Good guy with a gun not the murderer. H/T Volokh Conspiracy

    Good guy with a gun + the man who murdered the man the good guy killed

    It turns out, though, that there’s one such defensive use incident I originally missed, but that yielded a Georgia Supreme Court decision just a few weeks ago, in Hill v. State. And that decision both tells an interesting story of effective and heroic self-defense, and brings up a very interesting and controversial criminal doctrine.

    Good find! Thanks for posting!
    I'll make you an offer: I will argue and fight for all of your rights, if you will do the same for me. That is the only way freedom can work. We have to respect all rights, all the time--and strive to win the rights of the other guy as much as for ourselves.

    If I am equal to another, how can I legitimately govern him without his express individual consent?

    There is no human being on earth I hate so much I would actually vote to inflict government upon him.

    The list is of internal links to cited states' Felony Murder Rule articles with statute citations.
