JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (AP) _ The House voted Thursday to expand the right for potential crime victims to use deadly force against their attackers.
House members endorsed a bill barring civil lawsuits against people who injure or kill someone attempting to enter their home or car.
Missourians already are allowed to use deadly force when they have a reasonable belief of harm or believe it necessary to protect themselves and to stop a home trespasser from committing arson, burglary or physical violence against someone else.
