The whole idea of the Second Amendment is that the people themselves form a well regulated militia that ensures the security of a free state. Not only are the people armed for their own self defense but also for the security of their community. Fundamental to this idea is that the State simply does not have a monopoly on the use of force. Not only do citizens have a right to bear arms, but the police have no more right to use deadly force than any other person--the standard is the same--and any member of the public, that well regulated militia, can act to stop crime when they see it. Until now. Georgia's Republicans are eviscerating a fundamental principle behind the Second Amendment: https://www.news4jax.com/news/georgia/2021/03/09/house-unanimously-passes-overhaul-of-georgia-citizens-arrest-law/ Under the bill, people who are mere bystanders or witnesses generally would not have the right to detain people. Deadly force couldn’t be used to detain someone unless it’s in self-protection, protecting a home, or preventing a forcible felony. See something? Don't you dare do anything about it. Call the AUTHORITIES, Georgia has no interest in being a free state.
