Second Time Unlucky for Burglar


Dec 31, 10:32 am ET

CHICAGO (Reuters) - A burglar who was wounded while breaking into a Chicago suburb home drove himself to the hospital in his intended victim's BMW, which he had likely stolen the night before, police said Tuesday.
The 31-year-old burglar, who let himself into the home on Monday night with keys he had apparently stolen on Sunday night, suffered two gunshot wounds and escaped by diving through a plate glass window.

Police, who arrested him at the hospital, said his wounds were not life-threatening.

The homeowner who shot the burglar may also be in trouble. The 54-year-old father of two lives in Wilmette, Illinois, an upscale Chicago suburb that bans handgun ownership. For the gun, he could face a fine of up to $750.

I kind of like that they added it.
If a normal person is reading this it makes the law look ridicuous.  Sometimes getting the sheeple scared works for us too.
There were a lot of first time gun buyers in Sep of 01.
