    So an Anti-gun senator of N.C shoots a home intruder.


    http://www2.timesdispatch.com/rtd/ne...me/287987/P10/


    Long time Anti-Gun Advocate State Senator R.C. Soles, 74, shot one of two intruders at his home just outside Tabor City, N.C. about 5 p.m. Sunday, the prosecutor for the politician's home county said.

    The victim, Kyle Blackburn, was taken to a South Carolina hospital, but the injuries were not reported to be life-threatening, according to Rex Gore, district attorney for Columbus, Bladen andBrunswick counties..

    The State Bureau of Investigation and Columbus County Sheriff's Department are investigating the shooting, Gore said. Soles, who was not arrested,declined to discuss the incident Sunday evening.

    "I am not in a position to talk to you," Soles said by telephone. "I'm right in the middle of an investigation."


    The Senator, who has made a career of being against gun ownership for the general public, didn't hesitate to defend himself with his own gun when he believed he was in immediate danger and he was the victim.

    In typical hypocritical liberal fashion, the "Do As I Say And Not As I Do" Anti-Gun Activist Lawmaker picked up his gun and took action in what apparently was a self-defense shooting. Why hypocritical you may ask? It is because his long legislative record shows that the actions that he took to protect his family, his own response to a dangerous life threatening situation, are actions that he feels ordinary citizens should not have if they were faced with an identical situation.

    It has prompted some to ask if the Senator believes his life and personal safety is more valuable than yours or mine.
    But, this is to be expected from those who believe they can run our lives, raise our kids, and protect our families better than we can.

    Kinda puts the lie to the Federalist Papers argument that legislators will be inclined to be careful about the laws they pass because they will be subject to them, too.

    Of course, the Anti-federalists knew thatargument was baloney clear back in 1790; its just nice to see another example.
    I'll make you an offer: I will argue and fight for all of your rights, if you will do the same for me. That is the only way freedom can work. We have to respect all rights, all the time--and strive to win the rights of the other guy as much as for ourselves.

    If I am equal to another, how can I legitimately govern him without his express individual consent?

    There is no human being on earth I hate so much I would actually vote to inflict government upon him.

    State Sen. R.C. Soles, the state's longest-serving legislator, was indicted Thursday on a felony charge of assault with a deadly weapon inflicting serious bodily injury.

    The Attorney General's Office presented a bill of indictment to a Columbus County grand jury. The charge carries a possible sentence of 15 to 31 months in prison.

    Why are so many talking about being saddened in that article? This is exactly what he wants for the rest of us. Virginia had a very anti-gun governor who, in spite of State Police protection, felt it necessary to keep a loaded gun at his bedside. It is oh so typical of that political mindset.
