Irish homeowners can also use guns.

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 bill aims to shift the balance of rights back to the homeowner where it should always have been.
