Poet Maya Angelou shoots gun at home intruder. Barack Obama thinks she should be in jail because of it.

Checking both google and google news, I did not see this reported on by any of the mainstream media, other than Time magazine. No New York Times, Washington Post, or Associated Press articles. No CBS, NBC, or CNN coverage.

No wonder why some on the political left hate Fox News, which did report it.

For News reports:

Poet Maya Angelou Blasts Gun at Home Intruder

Obama supporter and famous poet Maya Angelou was asked by Time Magazine if she had ever fired a gun in her life.

Her answer was surprising — “Of course!” Angelou then recounted a time in which she fired upon a home intruder.

Source: TIME’s 10 Questions for Maya Angelou

TIME: Your mother — she was your protector. She often carried a gun, she seemed to be very fond of guns. Did you inherit your mother’s fondness for guns?

MAYA ANGELOU: Well, I do like to have guns around, I don’t like to carry them. But I like — if somebody is going to come into my house and I have not put out the welcome mat, I want to stop them.

TIME: Have you ever fired a weapon?

ANGELOU: Of course!

TIME: At a person?

ANGELOU: I’ve fired it period, not at a person I hope!

I was in my house in North Carolina. It was fall. I heard someone walking on the leaves. And somebody actually turned the knob. So I said, “Stand four feet back because I’m going to shoot now!” Boom! Boom! The police came by and said, “Ms. Angelou, the shots came from inside the house.” I said, “Well, I don’t know how that happened.”

When Barack Obama was a state senator in Illinois, he voted against allowing people in their own homes to use guns to protect themselves and their families from murderers and rapists.

Barack Obama thinks that Maya Angelou should be in jail because she used a gun to protect herself, in her own home, from an intruder who could have been planning to rape and murder her.

    So, if true, she’s the epitome of irresponsible gun owners. Rule 1 – never pull the weapon unless you intend to use it. Rule 2 – know what the hell you’re shooting at. So she shoots through the door and kills the neighbor’s kid…or a member of her family or even the family dog for pete’s sake. No…Obama’s wrong on guns…but so is shooting blind.

    Wonder why Marguerite Johnson aka maya angelou didn’t recount her years as a New Orleans hooker and madam and her gunplay back then?..
