Baggs, thanx for info. I just sent off an email of encouragement to the good senator.
here it is.......

Senator Goggans,

I want to thank you for supporting senate bill 396. All of the citizens of this great state ( and the rest of America...) will benefit from the passing of this bill into law. No one should be punished because they stood their ground and refused to be a victim of a crime. As you are probably aware, Not only are Georgians backing you, but all law abiding americans are behind you as well.
We are slowly getting ourselves out of this crime infestation that has plagued our country. This is another step in the right direction in doing just that. God bless you for fighting for the cause.
