Italy paves way for ‘legitimate self-defense’ measures.
Matteo Salvini means what he says and takes action. Salvini is a dynamic leader and one to follow in Europe.
Salvini has already defied Brussels and closed the ports to deny entry. Now he must start implementing the deportation program, which is a highly efficient measure of “self-defense”…or should we say self-preservation.
– It was a campaign pledge of Italian Interior Minister Matteo Salvini: The right to defend against intruders by any means necessary. Now, being able to grab a gun in self-defense is one step closer to reality.
The bill specifies that “defense is always legitimate” in a person’s home. It aims to protect a person who acts in self-defense in response to a perceived threat from an intruder.
Under current legislation, a person who harms an intruder, even in cases of self-defense, can be held responsible for damages.
During an election campaign stop in 2015, he vowed to change the law. “If you enter my house on foot, know you could be leaving lying down,” Salvini said. “Stay at home, go to work, that way you don’t risk anything.”
