    Anti-Gun Senator Shoots Intruder
    <http://www.starnewsonline.com/article/20100107/articles/100109828>
    State Senator R.C. Soles ( D - NC ) 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 intruder, 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 and Brunswick 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.

    Please send this to your friends, senators and congressmen ! We do not need double standards in this country ! -----------------------------------------

    Oh, the hypocrisy! It burns!!

    It will be very interesting to see what this moron has to say when the questions are asked of him. Such as, "If you think we all shouldn't be able to use a gun to defend our homes and lives, why do you own a gun? Do you think you are better than all of us?"

    And of course, we all know the answer to the second question already. Any politician, and I don't care what side of the isle he/she is on, thinks they are better than us lowly tax payers.

    Well the shooting took place August 23, 2009. Soles was also indicted for the shooting and eventually ended up plea bargaining and paying a fine.

    If you read the article that I linked above, apparently this politician has a bit of history...


    The incident put a spotlight on Soles' years of involvement in the lives of young men who were former clients. Records show police were called to Soles' house and law office at least 40 times in the past four years, ranging from routine burglar alarm activations to reported assaults and complaints that young people on mopeds were circling Soles' house.

    I don't think he was a raging anti. But he was no particular friend of the 2A in NC either.

    Surprised at the duplicity of a politician? Not at all. The rules they legislate are for the great unwashed, not the elite.

    Nothing new here--he's a politician! Now, . . . are the good folks of NC still re-electing him?
