State Senator Soles Turns Himself Into Authorities
(A hearty Tip O'The Hat to Mr. A.G. on this one, just above!)
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 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. Leave me alone, you jackals!"
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. "I am a Senator, and I have a need to defend myself, so go away, dammit!" he said. "You people disgust me!"
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.
