Naturally, Democrats and the Left have tried to pry Southerners away from their guns and religion. Gun control has largely been a culture war effort for Democrats. “Some of the southern areas have cultures that we have to overcome,” was Congressman Charles Rangel’s explanation for why gun control was both needed and difficult.
The Washington Post’s Gene Weingarten cursed the Second Amendment as “the refuge of bumpkins and yeehaws who like to think they are protecting their homes against imagined swarthy marauders desperate to steal their flea-bitten sofas from their rotting front porches.”
Sixty-eight-year-old Joseph Sapienza suspects the men who attempted to break into his Gastonia home Thursday night thought he would be an easy target because he’s disabled and uses a walker.
But after scaring away the would-be thieves, Sapienza taped a note to his door, in which he attempted to make it clear that his trigger finger works just fine.
“(If) you try to break in my house again, I will be waiting on you,” reads the note, which was still there Friday afternoon. “Enter at your own risk.”
Sapienza, a Marine Corps veteran who served four years in Vietnam, was watching television in his bed at 7:42 p.m. at his home on Davis Avenue. He heard someone prying off the lock and pulling the nails to the latch out of his front door.
He grabbed his .45-caliber handgun, put it in a holster on his walker and began shuffling toward the sound. He flipped a hallway light on, yelled out to announce he was armed, and yanked open the door to see two men wearing ski masks.
They jumped off his porch and practically tripped over one another trying to flee, Sapienza said.
“It was like a keystone cops scene,” he said. “When they saw the .45, one ran one way up the street, and the other went the other way.”
If you despise the South as much as Democrat Socialists and other liberal-fascist haters like the above-quoted scum do, then stay the hell out, and keep your Nazi gun-control bullshit up North where it belongs. Otherwise, you just might get shot like the common housebreaking thugs you really are at heart.
And if you’d like to consider that a thinly-veiled invitation to come and take them, motherfuckers, then by all means be my guest. Some of us down here would absolutely LOVE it.
