Gentlemen, I present to you the pinnacle of arrogance.

With connivance from the media the story was published as State Sen. R.C. Soles shoots one of two home intruders (http://www.starnewsonline.com/article/20090823/ARTICLES/908239980/-1/stormpost02&tc=email_newsletter). But thankfully some RKBA bloggers (http://johnjacobh.wordpress.com/2009/08/23/breaking-nc-gun-control-democrat-rc-soles-shoots-intruder/) pointed out his hypocritical anti-gun voting record.

"Raleigh Constitutent[sic] alerts us to another Democrat hypocrite armed with a firearm who defends himself after a career of gun control advocacy. So Senator, is your life worth more than We, The Peasants?

As posted on the in- state 2nd Amendment Civil Rights Organization Grass Roots North Carolina website 2008 Voter Evaluation Guide Senator Soles voting record on the Right To Keep And Bear Arms was evaluated at *ONE* Star.

Now, it could have been worse, most diehard Democrats in North Carolina are proud of their *ZERO* star rating. It remains unknown as to how many of them own home defense firearms.

Tantalizing Story Excerpt:
Sen. R.C. Soles shoots one of two home intruders

Sen. R.C. Soles shot one of two people who were breaking into his home about 5 p.m. Sunday, officials said.

Columbus County Sheriff Chris Batten said Kyle Blackburn was taken to Loris Community Hospital in South Carolina, though he did not know the extent of his injuries."

Not all democrats are anti gun, but all politicians are liars in one degree or another.

This senetor seems like a class A scumbag. The two men involved were not arrested. I think there is wayyyyyy more to this.

What a hypocrite! I wonder if his voting habits will change now, or if he'll become even more anti...

POLICESTATE
08-23-2009, 9:51 PM
My bet is he'll become more anti, he'll say he was motivated to shoot because he was afraid they had guns.

I think those that are anti-gun should, well, be banned from having guns...and armed body gaurds. They should be forced to practice what they preach or go to prison. I think then we would see how anti gun the generally are...F'n Hypocrite

Anybody remember the guys name that was the top guy for Handgun Control Inc. who shot the guy swimming in his pool?

Unless he advocates a 100% ban on all firearms, I don't think it's fair to call him a hypocrite. This is definitely a "told ya so" moment and I can understand the outrage, but I think it's divisive to call him a hypocrite. Sometimes people who aren't fond or are for regulating the use of firearms get a sobering moment when they are forced to see the good in them. I can't help but feel like calling him a hypocrite and massively publicizing--in a bitter, tabloidesque way-- what is probably a sensitive time in his life will only harm our cause.

Like any other person he should be applauded for doing what he did to defend his life and the life of his family. This is definitely a teachable moment™ for him, and I am sure he realizes that. If however he continues beyond this point to legislate heavily against firearms in his district, or if he really is pro 100% ban, then sure, all bets are off. I just can't help but give the guy benefit of the doubt.

He's got a very questionable background...the shooting looks to be more complicated than a simple home invasion....but the bottom line is the guy is a hypocrite

He seems to have some skeletons but I can't find anything anti-gun. Doesn't mean he isn't. A quick search shows that he was backed by the NRA in 2004 for the State Senate.

This reminded me of during the Presidential debates when all the candidates were asked if they kept a gun at home. Hillary and Obama said no, but they forgot to mention that they have full secret service protection with armed guards that have full auto guns.

He's another Carl Rowan:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Carl_Rowan

"Rowan gained public notoriety on June 14, 1988, when he shot a teenage trespasser, Neil Smith, who was using Rowan's swimming pool in Washington, D.C.. Rowan used an unregistered .22 LR pistol. Critics charged hypocrisy, since Rowan was a strict gun control advocate. In a 1981 column, he advocated "a law that says anyone found in possession of a handgun except a legitimate officer of the law goes to jail—period." In 1985, he called for "A complete and universal federal ban on the sale, manufacture, importation and possession of handguns (except for authorized police and military personnel)." [2] [3]

Immediately after the shooting, Rowan offered several conflicting accounts about where he got the handgun. He first said that he had purchased the gun himself in response to threats on his life (which he later claimed had been made by the Ku Klux Klan). He also initially claimed that the gun had been properly registered. However, when District of Columbia police disclosed that the gun had not been registered, Rowan changed his story, claiming that the gun belonged to his son, who "was an FBI agent and did not have to register it [because it was] properly registered federally." Police officials pointed out that under D.C. law, all guns must be registered locally; failure to do so was punishable by up to a year in prison and a $1,000 fine.

Rowan was tried but the jury was deadlocked, the judge declared a mistrial and he was never retried. In his autobiography, Rowan said he still favors gun control, but admits being vulnerable to a charge of hypocrisy.[4]"

Anti-gun = "you"can't have a gun. It doesn't mean "I" can't have a gun!

And when "I" get caught lying about the registration "I" get to call it a mistake or simply ignore "you".
If "you" get caught caught lying about the registration "you"will be committing a felony in some way and going to jail.

So what's go'n on? Is the NRA endorsing anti-gun politicians or no? I don't believe the guy was anti-gun and I think if any of the charges that were leveled against him had any veracity he'd be out of office today. This is a BS posting.

that's why I asked for specific examples of votes that can qualify him as being anti.

In a strange way cbn60 and radioburning might be more level headed than others in this particular thread.

One of Boxer's flunkys tried this in the San Francisco federal building. Mark Calderon came to work packing his 9mm Glock w/o a permit one day. He quickly wound up in jail. Aides interrupted Babs, in the middle of an anti-NRA tirade on the Senate floor. I was watching this drivel at the time, and cracked up laughing. What could be nicer than knowing that a hypocrite would have to bail her flunky out for violating federal, state and local gun control laws...
