Hi

Is it legal to shot a burglar in your house, when he attacks you? Or when may you defend yourself?

Cheers

Hi KarateKid,

This is very circumstantial and has many deciding factors involved. For a basic guideline, you will be judged to see if you were justified to shoot the burglar or not. Whether he was any threat to your or anyone in the house. If your life is in danger then yes you are allowed to defend yourself until there is no longer a threat.
