Here is one of the hypocrites trying to control our gun rights. This came in an email so I'm not sure how factual it is.

Senator

R.C. Soles (D - NC) 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.
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.
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.

Hello Sterling,

It is easy to see if the emails you receive are factual or not by a little googling.  The one you posted apparently was factual in that the shooting happened, but by a very pro gun man.  http://www.snopes.com/politics/guns/soles.asp  I hope that helps.  You will need to find another argument.

Lone, maybe you should read a bit farther. I googled and about 8 out of 10 returns show him as an anti-gun Senator. He is also well known to the citizens here in NC as anti-gun.

Also, if it's not your first visit to Snopes, you know they never print anything but liberal garbage. If it doesn't fit their agenda, they don't print it.

I picked up a new Remington R-15 yesterday at Adventure Outdoors yesterday.   I was a wondering if I needed to set it up for shooting or leave it in the box and bury it in the walls of the house just in case.  I wanted it for a pig gun, but just wondering what the government will do for it.

I used to sell reloading supplies at gun shows and such. Every now and then someone will ask me about buying guns. I always recommend to never buy from a dealer due to the paperwork. they WILL use that against you and come for the guns. then they'll come back for you. -js

that's why i'm against the universal background checks too.  the info in current checks was not supposed to be kept.  now we find that much has been for "statistical" purposes.  the records from the dealers have to be kept for years and are available to the ATF on demand.

we already have de facto registration if you buy from a dealer and the universal background checks will seal the deal.
.....The greatest changes occur in their country without their cooperation. They are not even aware of precisely what has taken place. They suspect it; they have heard of the event by chance. More than that, they are unconcerned with the fortunes of their village, the safety of their streets, the fate of their church and its vestry. They think that such things have nothing to do with them, that they belong to a powerful stranger called “the government.” They enjoy these goods as tenants, without a sense of ownership, and never give a thought to how they might be improved.....

That's right. But then, universal background checks would be a "reasonable" gun law, wouldn't it? Lenin, Stalin, Hitler, Amin, and countless other tyrants would agree. -js

I've been telling people whenever I'm asked:  "why do you NEED X# rounds?"  That: "'To each according to his needs' is a tenet of Marxism, and I can have things within my rights because I WANT them." How you assess what you need is entirely your business and no one is owed an answer to that aggravating question.
be happy and make others happy.

Yea, my extreme liberal brother-in-law uses Snopes to backup the liberal stuff he gets off MSMBC.
