I think you may have got it backwards my friend.

The article claims that those who wish to forcefully oppose burglars will be given greater legal defense for doing so.

In an age of being able to sue anybody for anything, this is a good thing.

You may want to re-read the article but here is the very first paragraph

"Grossly disproportionate" force will still be against the law in England and Wales, but the bar will be higher than the current "proportionate" force test.
