I'm amused by the label "anti-gun advocate". A quick search seems to indicate that he has been in favor of gun control. I can find no evidence that he is "anti-gun".

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.


Typical of the behavior we see in many of the high and mighty, as we've touched on in other discussions here. To folks like this, the law is for the little people.

This is what I suspected. So he just thinks certain people shouldn't be allowed to defend themselves like he did.
It's amazing, people will criticize you for "biting the hand that feeds you," while they're busy praising the hand that beats them.

A check of Snopes reveals that the article is a mixture of true and false information.

Often we find that "anti gun" and "gun control" end up as being one in the same in America. If you have found he is in favor of "gun control" you have found evidence he is indeed "anti-gun". I know you enjoy parsing words and splitting hairs, but the fact is that when it comes to the 4th ammendment many bristle at the slightest move against it, but are just happy as a clam to let them shread the 2nd.

So, wait.

The story is actually from 2009.

The Senator is already retired from the Senate.

The Senator already had his day in court and plead guilty back in 2010:

http://www.wral.com/news/state/story/7114530/

He was fined $1000.

The NRA gave the Senator an “A” in 2004, 2006, and 2008.

So how and why is the article in the original post news now, in May of 2011?

Weird ...

I wasn't replying to your post in particular, but it's all good.

This is what I feared. People would draw conclusions without even bothering to look for facts.

Find a statement by Soles indicating his policy. Please. Maybe post it here.

It isn't news. It's a old story wrapped in falsehoods being used to a) push a gun agenda and b) attack "liberals".

It's a loathsome strategy and it works. Look at all the fish that have swallowed the bait, hook and all.

Yep, he had a D in front of his name when he was a senator, therefore he was anti-gun.

For the record, though a lot of people here consider me to be a radical liberal, I do believe in the right to bear arms. (Provided you're not a criminal or insane.)

Do you mean a convicted criminal, after "serving" their "time?" So, they aren't allowed to defend themselves and their homes, even after being "rehabilitated" by the "justice" system? Just to clarify.

Yes, even having served their time there are still things that are and should be denied.

So, when an armed invader breaks into their house, it's essentially "**** you" to the home owner?

Gotta love how "loosely" some play with the idea of something NOT being infringed.

Danny, do you think anyone who can afford it should be allowed to own a howitzer?

Maybe if the American justice system focused more on rehabilitation instead of retribution, you'd have a point.
