Do you think householders should be allowed to use “reasonable force” to protect their property?

HOMEOWNERS and shopkeepers could be given the right to protect themselves against burglars and robbers. They would be allowed to use reasonable force if they perceive a threat to their property. Previously they could act only when they feared for their lives.

The surprise proposal is one of a series of reforms unveiled by Prime Minister David Cameron in a sharp turn to the right on law and order.
