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 legistlative 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 are far more valuable than yours or mine.. But, this is to be expected from those who believe they can run our lives, manage our money, raise our kids, and protect our families better than we can.

It is the same with Barry care, why was there ever a question about them using the same system they are trying to force on us? Useless shitbags everyone of them. Our entire government is an embarrassment~

I seem to remember Rosie O'Donnell had the same viewpoint as long as her bodyguard was the only citizen with a gun.

I'd be able to believe this more easily if it wasn't written from an obviously slanted point of view. The link actually goes to a much shorter and more neutral article. Where did this one come from?

Why is this guy a "victim"? Shouldn't he be identified as a "f*cking burglar"?

Because as the Senator has fought so hard to convince people how terrible guns are. This guy is a victim of an evil gun owner. The fine Senator should apologize to him pay for all his medical bills. Stinking gun owner :shake:

Also pretty shoddy on the "anti-gun" part of it.

That claim appears to originate from this website which gave him 1 star on guns:

http://grnc.org/remember_november/

**** - Expected to agree with conservative gun owners on at least 90% of gun issues
*** - Expected to agree with conservative gun owners on at least 80% of gun issues
** - Expected to agree with conservative gun owners on at least 70% of gun issues
* - Expected to agree with conservative gun owners on at least 60% of gun issues
0 - Expected to agree with conservative gun owners on less than 60% of gun issues or else candidate failed to return survey & insufficient information exists to make evaluation. Is he / she hiding something?

Only 60%-70%? Oh noes, he's anti-gun!

Hey HCF, why for the link isn't to the article posted?

I'm wondering what makes him an "anti-gun advocate"? For instance, I'm against the sale of automatic weapons to the general public, but I certainly have no issue with gun ownership in general. Does that make me an anti-gun advocate?

He is a longtime gun control advocate and his hypocrisy reflects in his actions and his voting record. Being a two faced lying sack of shit is pretty much a must to work in politics~

I think it is actually a blog post spliced together with the real article. The only post I could find that was near the time of the article was this on, it looks close. I think it has been modified a couple of times:

Wow, the NRA gave him a grade of "A".

What, no A+? "Anti-gun!" :cuss:

This was just some editorialized BS in this post apparently to try to make up a story that would outrage people. From a journalism standpoint, it's the equivalent of that girl carving the backwards "B" on her face.

Are you saying he is not known to be in favor of gun control? Do I really have to google instances of him proclaiming this? His record is flip flop and what a shock that is. In the back door deal do whatever to stay elected world of politics he fits in wonderfully. I guess because he is a dem you feel the need to defend him. Carry on as I don't really feel he is worth the effort of a DC pissing match~

So, the NRA is incorrect then? Are they anti-gun too?

I did look and I couldn't find anything legitimate except just a conclusory allegation from people trying to spread this article.

He is rated a one star. He is far from pro gun. He is not as bad as most of the left when it comes to gun panic but is far from a defender

Fair enough. I'm definitely for felons and psychos NOT having access to the same weaponry that you do, so I'll risk the "B" grade from the NRA. :D

It sounds fairly typical, I'm smarter and know what is best for everyone else, but being part of the ruling class I don't need to abide by the same rules as all you lower class peasants. It would crack me up, except nobody will hold him accountable for it.

Are people still paying attention to this article? It's not even news; it's a deliberately-incendiary pieced-together blog designed to get people pissed off. The guy who wrote it wants attention, has an obvious agenda, is not bound by the ethics rules for reporters, and probably made up whatever he didn't know. It has zero credibility.

Hey everyone, Tom Brady is actually a Mongolian warlord with bionic arms and an alien worm growing in his skull. Wait, I'll type up a blog post. Let's make a thread about it!

Anything less than 100% or A+ or whatever the rating scale might be, from now on, makes him a hypocrite.
