Actually, you are able to kill someone in order to save a life (your own or a loved one/dependent - not sure about the definition here) in self-defence.

I mean, you aren't allowed to *deliberately* kill someone in self-defence, but if it happens as a result of you defending yourself then it's more likely you'll get off.
