Of course, the senator is an extreme leftist gun grabber, which also makes him an extreme leftist hypocrite.
Guns are only for the elite and privileged! Only those with millions in the bank and political power should have the right to defend themselves with firearms!
Throughout history, tyrants have disarmed the populace while arming themselves along with surrounding themselves with private armies of security.
You should take a moment to write the senator a letter asking him how he can wake up in the morning and look at himself in the mirror.
Chuck Baldwin, libertarian presidential candidate 08, reports:
I think we need to face it: 2010 is more than a new year; it is also part of a new era in which all vestiges of normalcy and common sense have been left behind. In other words, it is a madhouse out there. Let me give you some examples of what I’m talking about.
Example Number One: In the world of anti-gun elitists, only common people are not allowed to defend themselves.
According to the Richmond (North Carolina) Times-Dispatch, “A sheriff says a North Carolina state senator shot one of two intruders at his home and hospital officials say the man is in fair condition.
“Multiple media outlets reported that Columbus County Sheriff Chris Batten said that 74-year-old Sen. R.C. Soles of Tabor City shot Kyle Blackburn late Sunday afternoon.”
According to the report, “Batten says the shooting occurred when two men went to the senator’s house and tried to kick in his front door. No charges have been filed.”
Now, don’t get me wrong. If the fellows were indeed breaking into his home, I’m glad the senator defended himself with a firearm. The miscreant deserved to be shot. Chalk up another one for the right to keep and bear arms. “What’s the problem?” you ask. The problem is, the good senator is one of the most anti-gun politicians in North Carolina. According to gun owners in NC, Soles has made a career out of opposing lawful gun ownership for the general public. In other words, in R.C. Soles’ world, his life is worth defending with a firearm, but your life or family (and mine) can go ahead and rot.
Soles is typical of Big-Government elitists who will allow themselves the luxury of all kinds of personal protection, while denying it for the common man. They hire professional bodyguards (does anyone remember Ted Kennedy’s personal bodyguard who was caught trying to take multiple loaded weapons–and over 100 rounds of ammunition–into the Capitol Hill building a few years back?); build exotic security fences and surveillance systems; and personally obtain firearm permits that are routinely denied the common person. Then they gladly take millions of dollars from gun control zealots to finance their Big-Government, anti-freedom agendas.
My question is, how does an elitist gun grabber like R.C. Soles get elected and reelected in the great State of North Carolina?
Good question Chuck.
The people have been brainwashed and cowed into submission, that’s how.
My letter to Sen. Soles:
Dear Sen. Soles,
It has come to my attention that you recently shot an intruder who was breaking into your home in the middle of the night.
It has also come to my attention that you have a horrible track record on gun rights.
I hope you take a moment to reflect on your previous policies of disarming of the public. Guns are a tool that can be used for good or evil. Banning guns does nothing but disarm the good and arm the bad. I hope your recent situation drives this point home.
The public is safer when good god fearing people carry weapons.
Thanks for your time in reading this letter.
I extend my sympathies to you and your family for what you have had to go through.
This gun grabbing grandpa just blew away a criminal intruder, but he wants to make sure your daughter gets gang rapped by thugs in her own home while you’re laying on the floor bleeding from multiple gun shot wounds being forced to watch.
