Default Any NJ Self-Defense Law?

I've been doing some research on gun self defense and I'm not finding nothing. I know there's no such thing as self defense in the state of New Jersey. But I know there has to be one in case someone breaks into your home. I live in a city that's high in crime (Newark). Just want to know some can and cant do's being a gun owner in the state of New Jersey

In NJ you have to be in fear of your life. Back against the wall and shoot to kill or they will sue you. Also the perp has to be armed. Jersey sucks like that.

When I was going through the process of getting my permits and Card I overheard a detective explaining that NJ is a "Retreat State", you must be backed into a corner in order to shoot the intruder. Sucks for me because our bedrooms are upstairs and I intend to lay down on the landing and shoot anyone that doesn't hear the "click click" of my chamber loading and start coming upstairs instead of leaving through the front door.
