Does this grant a right to self protection, or only a gray area where self defense may be allowed?
The headlines are actually somewhat misleading.
We have always had the right to kill an intruder if there’s been no alternative, what this law will do is strengthen and clarify the law. The laws have been wrongly played about with and have been subject to the interpretation of different judges and police forces.
So this dosent GIVE us any rights we didnt already have, it just strengthens and clarifies them.
