"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."

The Shotgun Joe method.
Good for her.
Uncle Joe’s candid advice would get Suzie Q Public three to five.
The Oscar Pistorius/Joe Biden School of Tactics has another brilliant graduate.
I thought the pen was supposed to be mightier than the sword.
She should write a poem about this.
I know why the caged bird sings and I know that if you touch my doorknob, I’ll blow your ass to kingdom come.
So she lied to the police and now admits it?
And some would say, ‘she’s a poet not a writer.’
I can guarantee you she’s a full fledged Obama backing commie and a gun grabber. She can have one, we can’t.
I'd rather listen to Vogon poetry.
Is the Pen Mightier - GEICO Commercial
I can guarantee you shes a full fledged Obama backing commie and a gun grabber. She can have one, we cant.
Scratch a leftist extremist, and you'll always find a hypocrite.
No biggie. Big Sis had dropped off a few cases of DHS hollow points for her.
Actually I would cheer her on if she had taken the time to identify her target before just squeezing off a few shots at someone through a door.
“The Shotgun Joe method.”
Yup. A proud graduate of the Joe Biden School of Home Defense and the Bill KKKlinton school of lying.
I know why the caged bird packs heat.
I would hate to be a UPS or FedEx guy delivering her some manucripts or such.
Yup. She’s on the list of “celebrities” that support gun control. Just not for them of course. Typical radical left wing extremist demokkkrat scumbag socialist. And her “poetry” sucks too.
From the comments:
Check out my poem:
One more step and I’ll blast you with my Gat!
Her life has been filled with violent episodes but I think it was a while ago that the home intruder event happened. Her late mother always enjoyed having guns around and after a boyfriend’s assault even gave the daughter one and the name of a hotel where she had heard her attacker was drinking. Maya took the gun and went to the hotel but fortunately for her (and us) didn’t have the nerve to follow through.
Maya is no Tyrone Green...
Dark and lonely on a summer night
Kill my landlord, kill my landlord
The watchdog barkin’, do he bite?
Kill my landlord, kill my landlord
I slip in the window
I break his neck
Then his house I start to wreck.
Got no reason, what the heck.
Kill my landlord, kill my landlord.
“C”-”I”-”L”-”L” my landlord.
Since she’s shooting through the door, what good would it do for the perp to stand four feet back? He’d still get hit. Makes you wonder if these liberal idjits even have the first clue about what guns do.
Not a good idea... just shooting blindly through a door. That’s a good way to kill somebody you actually like. It’s also true that with a door in between it’s hard to argue that there was actually a grave and imminent danger, yet.
Kind of reminiscent of another Black activist/author/anti gun advocate, who had he lived would probably made these present day ‘Journalists’ seem like children in the adoration of BO.
“If you have a gun you should go to jail- period.”
I am referring to Carl Rowan, who - way back when - wanted to disarm the world.
Seems like one night in 1988 some young lad and a friend or two climbed the fence to his property and went for a midnight swim in his pool.
Seems like Carl got his HANDGUN and shot the kid. Fact that the kid was White really didn’t matter - We ‘know’ Carl didn’t live in ‘THAT’(other) neighborhood.
His son was a former FBI agent and gave him the gun for protection.
ABSOLUTELY nothing wrong with that, just hypocritical as hell.
Maybe she is the person the U.N. is targeting when they want to remove weapons from the elderly, you know crazy old liberals!
If the UPS guy knocks on Maya Angelou’s door, his underwear are going to be as brown as his uniform.
He shot a kid for swimming in his pool? That seems a bit extreme. Was he prosecuted?
****I can guarantee you shes a full fledged Obama backing commie and a gun grabber. She can have one, we cant.****
Reminds me of when Angela Davis was in jail on a murder charge. She could not make bail, so some admitted communist dairy owner in California, came up with the cash to spring her.
When this commie dairy owner got death threats he went out and bought....an AR-15 for home protection.
Carl Rowan was tried but the jury was deadlocked; the judge declared a mistrial and he was never retried.
What a lovely poem...
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!”
The police came by and said...
“Ms. Angelou, the shots came from inside the house.”
“Well, I don’t know how that happened.”
Yes... the kids jumped his fence in the middle of the night and he claims he ‘warned’ him he had a gun but the kid advanced on him and he shot him in the wrist.
The kid said he was standing by the pool in his underwear, Rowan came out, shot at and hit him, then went back into the house to hide.
The kid and his girl friend did Community service and Rowan ended up in a mistrial....
It was a ‘popular sport’ for teens from Bethesda to go to NW DC and the ‘upper neighborhoods’ and do ‘pool hopping’(?)
The fact that it was ‘known’ this activity was going on made it all the more ‘strange’ that Rowan would open fire in his back yard.
Rowan was charged with improperly owning a gun in DC but fought if by saying he didn’t legally ‘own’ it as it was a his sons and his son was authorized to own one.
Walking on the Leaves
Bogus. Just like my tagline...
My Life had stood - a Loaded Gun
In Corners till a Day
The Owner passed identified
And carried Me away
And now We roam in Sovreign Woods
And now We hunt the Doe
And every time I speak for Him
The Mountains straight reply
And do I smile, such cordial light
Opon the Valley glow
It is as a Vesuvian face
Had let its pleasure through
And when at Night Our good Day done
I guard My Masters Head
Tis better than the Eider Ducks
Deep Pillow to have shared
To foe of His Im deadly foe
None stir the second time
On whom I lay a Yellow Eye
Or an emphatic Thumb
Though I than He may longer live
He longer must than I
For I have but the power to kill,
Without the power to die
And for the record she's a lousy poet and a lousy shot too.
A take off of the Indiana Jones famous scene.
Why didn’t she just vomit on the door ???
You know she had to take a poetshot through the door.
She wrote a poem called “A brave and startling truth.”
” When we come to it
When we let the rifles fall from our shoulders...Who reach daily for the bomb, the blade and the dagger “
Well I say she just contradicted herself by using a firearm.
