Long time Anti-Gun Advocate State Democratic 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."


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.--- What a classic Liberal hypocrite --- 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.

Terrific post, thank you. The hypocrisy in DC, primarily from the left is stunning.
Handguns, used properly by trained individuals, can combat crime and save innocent lives. Police in most cases do a wonderful job but cannot respond quickly enough to help when needed. The Senators stand against gun rights probably prevented him from proper training at a public gun range, explaining his poor aim. Had it been my house the two intruders would not have walked out.

Here's more on that sleeze-bag lawyer who, according to some friends in Shelby, let some of his female clients pay their legal bill on their knees (ah la Clinton) or backs (ah la Edwards), which is SOP for most lawyers.

But, he's a good, honest Christian man, or so the sheeples in Shelby and that district were led to believe - for 41 years.

So, how did the mass hysteria turn out? Almost as soon as he took office, Obama lifted the ban on owning assault rifles, including the one I have. Since then? Nothing's changed, which is good because I had no intention of giving my weapons up anyway. ;o)

Nothings changed ? Tried to purchase ammo lately ? The availability and price of ammo has changed a great deal. Spent military shells are now melted down rather than reconditioned. The back door option to banning guns is to severely limit the availability of ammo. Guess your love for obama has allowed you to overlook this fact.

This sounds like free market economics, a perfect example of supply and demand, not some Grand Conspiracy patch work quilt.

I've been "collecting" ammo for a long time although I don't do a lot of shooting these days. The military has had first dibbs for years, which is fine, and because of their demand brass is in very short supply.

Free market economics ? Like being able to purchase insurance across state lines ? Something the dems are resisting.

Please resist your incessant cut and paste.

Why increase supply, more profit in low supply and riding the wave of hysteria.

Man you are a brilliant translator, wish I was more like you. Take no crap from them nasty Conservatives. And keep steering clear of any talk about the dismal performance of our hero obama.
Good Question

Why would you need an assault rifle?
