This falls into our general category of “If Democrats Didn’t Have Double Standards They Wouldn’t Have Any!” This post focuses on a Democrat who’s made his career opposing Second Amendment rights for you and I and taking advantage of those same rights to defend himself.
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.
I have mixed emotions with hypocrites like Soles. On the one hand I’m glad he was able to defend himself against a bad guy. On the other hand, he’s not really a “good guy with a gun,” he’s a “hypocrite with a gun” – Michael Bloomberg where are you? – and the cynical, nasty part of me would be happy seeing him have to face Blackburn with nothing more than a “Please don’t hurt me…”
The cynical, nasty part of me also would like to see DA Gore arrest Soles and make is miserable existence even more miserable. But then he’d likely feel the need to do the same to the common folk that Soles wants to leave unarmed.
Probably the best we can do with this hypocrite is to hope that Blackburn sues him.
