    Why did he even
    have a gun!!!!!

    Typical hypocrite liberal……. Anti-Gun Senator Shoots Intruder

    See link to story below ;

    This NC Democrat State Senator is a
    die-hard anti gunner. He has voted for every anti
    gun bill that has crossed his desk, but when someone invaded his
    house, he picked up a gun for self defense.
    Hypocrits! See another news article below

    74-year-old N.C. state senator shoots, wounds intruder at his home | Richmond Times-Dispatch

    Aug 24, 2009

    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."

    Soles, a top-ranking Democrat and the longest-serving member of the legislature,
    already was the subject of an SBI investigation over sexual misconduct
    allegations with former male clients.
    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 far 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.

    I guess that feeling of the "playing field not being level" is correct. I'm wondering if the anti gun lobby will contribute to him anymore. He’s a pretty out spoken anti gun presence on a National level. Like most liberal’s; he’s a two faced elitist, in the game for the power and money.

    He is most definitely a hypocrite, but lets not paint all liberals with the same brush. I am pretty liberal on lots of issues and many liberals feel just as strongly about their beliefs as conservatives( and some of them are actually
    vaguely informed).
    That senator is clearly a tosser if you look at his previous issues.

    Sorry wasn't implying that all liberals were lighting rods for stupid; nor are all conservatives patriots. In any case; I didn't mean to seem like I was painting with a brush..... It takes 50% of each for the system to work well and the American people to be represented fairly; of course, those who serve must have our best interest and welfare ahead of their own… that seems to be the problem today’…., they don’t!

    Fair enough and well said. I guess I get sensitive when society gets polarised along party lines and not beliefs. Politicians are politicians...only a few of them are in it for the greater good. Granted, you cant please every one all the time and that is the essence of democracy, to be able to swallow decisions that aren't always in your favour.
    Sorry too,my comment wasn't aimed at you 436, just ranting a little.lightbulb

    jericho,
    I see we’ve found middle ground and respect for each others views.... were good here. Now I just wish our Government could reach the same understanding and respect for us.
    Take care my friend, stay safe.

    Any one that votes for and backs any laws that take away our guns should have to hand over theirs!! If they get caught with one then they should have to pull oh about 25 years . They should never be able to have one !

    Mr. SODOM needs to step down....

    I wouldn't want to be identified with any DEM period!!!
