Self-defence on the rise, and it is legal

Cecil Coley was attacked by three men with guns.

"Shopkeeper Cecil Coley, 72, who stabbed to death a burglar in Manchester, will not face charges, as prosecutors reassured homeowners they can use reasonable force to protect themselves, their families and their property."

A sad story, which would have been sadder if Cecil had been murdered.

Jim Bennett: "At some point people will start to discuss whether the right to self-defense implies a right to effective means to exercise that right.”
