Georgia, Floridia and Tennessee (I believe Tn, anyway) only passed "Stand Your Ground" legislation in recent years. Before that you were supposed to attempt retreat before you could use deadly force to protect yourself.
Georgia's law also gives you protection from criminal prosecution and civil liability actions as long as you are in a place legal to have the firearm and are not committing a crime when the shooting takes place.

yeah...whether the locale has "duty to retreat" laws is going to be the first thing on my mind when someone is shooting at me with a rifle...
