Because some creep is at the door, turning the knob. And she's alone and rightfully afraid. But she has a gun in her hand.
And thanks to the Second Amendment that many on the political left would like to erase and rewrite — by using horrific tragedies like Sandy Hook to wipe the Constitution of irritants — Maya Angelou was able to defend herself.
That's right. She defended herself with a firearm.
Maya Angelou got her gun. And now that she's talked about it, she teaches us a lesson about making assumptions.
Angelou, the literary icon and famed poet and "Star Trek" fan, told Time magazine in a recent interview that she likes having guns around. Her comments must have been the last thing that gun controllers wanted to see…
ANGELOU: Well, I do like to have guns around. I don't like to carry them. But if somebody is going to come into my house, and I have not put out the welcome mat, I want to stop them.'

Re: Poetic Justice
Is this not a straw man argument by saying "that many on the political left would like to erase and rewrite " That may be true for some, but the proposed legislation isn't to abolish guns altogether.
