'That is the chance you take'

I love this:

A judge has told two burglars that if they choose to raid a home where the householders legally own a gun they should accept the risk of being shot.

The judge said: "I make it plain that, in my judgment, being shot is not mitigation. If you burgle a house in the country where the householder owns a legally held shotgun, that is the chance you take. You cannot come to court and ask for a lighter sentence because of it.
Much less lovable, of course, is the fact that the victims (the real ones, not the criminals who got shot) were themselves initially arrested, and held for almost two days.

But at least it worked out in the end.
