Homeowners can kill burglars in self-defence

Good news for Brits:
Homeowners who confront burglars were told by the Government yesterday that they were entitled to kill in self-defence - and use guns and knives - to protect their family and property.

They were reassured that they will not be prosecuted if they acted "honestly and instinctively" against intruders in the heat of the moment.
Previously, some British homeowners were jailed for acting in self-defense.
