This is an oldie, but a goodie and a great example of “If Democrats Didn’t Have Double Standards They Wouldn’t Have Any!”
This story focuses on a Democrat who’s made his career opposing Second Amendment rights for you and I and taking advantage of those same rights to defend himself.
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.
I have mixed emotions with hypocrites like Soles. On the one hand I’m glad he was able to defend himself against a bad guy. On the other hand, he’s not really a “good guy with a gun,” he’s a “hypocrite with a gun” – Michael Bloomberg where are you? – and the cynical, nasty part of me would be happy seeing him have to face Blackburn with nothing more than a “Please don’t hurt me…”
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.
He was indicted on a felony charge of assault with a deadly weapon inflicting serious bodily injury.
