Violence is treated as a very serious matter in the law, and the laws around violent crimes reflect that mentality. Punishment for any kind of assault or other violent crime is severe, and will result in a criminal record that will show the person convicted is a dangerous individual. Moreover, a misdemeanor arrest for any cirme that the federal government considers "domestic violence" can result in a lifetime ban on firearm possession, even if Georgia doesn't consider the case domestic violence.
However, violent crime accusations can be the result of false or exaggerated claims. Mild altercations can be raised to felony assault charges by overzealous prosecutors doing the bidding of vindictive "victims. And people who used force in self-defense can find themselves the subject of criminal accusations.
