Through a detail outline of Georgia case laws, Federal Firearms Act and Firearms on Federal Property, not through interpretation but from an enforcement perspective. Laws are explained as what is acceptable in our community; elements of the crime, reading/ understanding O.C.G.A., and a detailed explanation of the consequences for their actions. This process better educates the gun owner and has proven to reduce recidivism by giving the tools to citizens in our community to make better decisions in the future. An overall respect is gained in the process for law enforcement, prosecutors, and the court system in general as gun owner become more responsible.
As Pretrial Diversionary programs are becoming more and more utilized within our community as the focus has become more on changing behavior through educational programs.
