Irish Gun Owners Can Now Shoot Intruders.
As we get news through that England is now officially the most violent country in the European Union the Irish Government has passed a new home defence bill.
Irish homeowners can now legally use guns to defend themselves if their homes are attacked under new legislation. The new home defense bill has moved the balance of rights back to the house owner if his home is broken into "where it should always have been", say top Irish police.
The police association of superintendents and inspectors, the AGSI, stated that “the current situation, which legally demands a house owner retreat from an intruder, was intolerable".
The new bill was published by Justice Minister Dermot Ahern yesterday. Under the bill homeowners will be allowed to use "reasonable" force against intruders to defend themselves, others or their property. This includes lethal force, depending on the circumstances.
Justice Minister Dermot Ahern stated that house owners could use guns in self-defense, especially if the intruders were armed but said it would ultimately be a matter for the courts to resolve.
The bill also clarifies that a house owner will not be required to retreat from an intruder, and that intruders injured as a result of reasonable force won’t be able to sue the house owner.
I can just see the Green looney left choking on their
lattes over this one!
Below are the figures showing the results of very strict gun control laws in Britain!
It's good to see that the basic right to defend one's life, family, and property has been restored to the Irish People.
Some sections of the Australian Looney Left believe that criminals and other assorted social degenerates have the "human right" to break into your home, destroy your property, rape your wife and murder your family unhindered by any means of self defense on the part of the law abiding citizen.
I wonder will any politician in the major parties have the cajones to put up a similar bill in Australia?
