guy with gun ATLANTA, GA – A federal lawsuit is asking a judge to declare Georgia’s “stand your ground” law unconstitutional. The complaint has been filed by the Rainbow PUSH Coalition, which was founded by Rev. Jesse Jackson Sr. ┬áThe lawsuit claims the law is applied unevenly, and allows people to use deadly force as a preventive manner rather than a last resort.

The Georgia law states a person is justified in threatening or using force if he/she believes it is necessary to protect themselves or another person. The lawsuit is naming Gov. Nathan Deal and Attorney General Sam Olen as defendants.
