Self-defense is Legal in Colorado

I knew it was, but there was an outcry from the usual suspects because the kid who got shot was 17. (A teenager? Well, he probably would have been charged as an adult, since it was an armed home invasion.)

DA: Man who killed intruder acted in self defense So, no charges will be filed against the homeowner.
"The DA reviewed all of the available information and evidence and in light of appropriate self defense statutes they concluded the homeowner was defending himself and he was engaged in self defense," Denver DA spokesperson Lynn Kimbrough said.
Not only is self-defense a human right, in Colorado it is also your legal right. (At least in your own home that is.)
