Bill to give British householders more power to tackle intruders

Telegraph | News | Tories launch Bill to give householders the power to tackle intruders. Seems to be a good step forward for the rights of British citizens.

But the British are still disarmed, so it waits to be seen how effective this change will be.

And the currnet government seems to be split on the issue. (A certiain Lord Goldsmith defended the rights of burglars in a recent interview.) If the government opposes the change in the law, it likely will not pass - before that government is voted out of power.
