Rand Paulís Wife: I Sleep with a Loaded Gun Thanks to Leftistsí Threats
Breitbart ^ | 10/9/2018

Posted on 10/09/2018 7:48:23 AM PDT by Altura Ct.

Kelley Paul, the wife of Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY), described her increasing concerns for the safety of herself and her family amidst increasing calls from Democrats and the broader left to amplify politically motivated hostility towards Republicans. She offered her remarks in a Friday interview with Breitbart News Deputy Political Director Amanda House.

“We’ve updated all of our security systems at home. I sleep with a loaded gun by my bed. I’m home alone a lot, obviously when Rand is [in Washington, DC], and so I’ve got deadbolts all around my house so that if someone’s in my house when I go to bed I’m deadbolted in three different levels,” Paul told House.

“It’s bizarre. I’ve never been like this in my whole life. … We used to never even lock our doors, and now that has all changed. Even going out to dinner in D.C., last night, you worry. You hope that people aren’t going to come up and just start screaming at you.”

Paul recalled a neighbor assaulting her husband outside their home in Bowling Green, KY, describing what she said is an increasingly politically polarized America. Her husband suffered broken ribs as a result of the attack, and the attacker was sentenced to 30 days of incarceration.

“Words do matter, and there are so many, quite frankly, unhinged [and] unstable people out there, and when they hear someone on their side telling them, ‘Get up in their face,’ they take that literally, and they think that gives them a license to be very aggressive, be harassing, throw people out of restaurants, and I don’t think anybody wants to live in a country like that,” Paul continued.

I’ve had a loaded gun next to my bed for years.
The left has lost their minds (if they actually had them in the first place)

Happiness Is a Warm Gun
The Beatles
Produced by George Martin & Chris Thomas
Album The Beatles (The White Album)

[Verse 1]
She’s not a girl who misses much
Do do do do do do, oh yeah
She’s well-acquainted with the touch of the velvet hand
Like a lizard on a window pane
The man in the crowd with the multicoloured mirrors
On his hobnail boots
Lying with his eyes while his hands are busy
Working overtime
A soap impression of his wife which he ate
And donated to the National Trust

[Verse 2]
I need a fix because I’m going down
Down to the bits that I left uptown
I need a fix because I’m going down

[Verse 3]
Mother Superior jumped the gun
Mother Superior jumped the gun
Mother Superior jumped the gun
Mother Superior jumped the gun
Mother Superior jumped the gun
Mother Superior jumped the gun

[Chorus]
Happiness (is a warm gun)
Bang, bang, shoot, shoot
Happiness (is a warm gun, momma)
Bang, bang, shoot, shoot

[Verse 4]
When I hold you in my arms
And when I feel my finger on your trigger
I know nobody can do me no harm
Because:

[Chorus]
Happiness is a warm gun momma
Happiness is a warm gun, yes it is
Happiness is a warm, yes it is, gun
Well don’t you know that happiness is a warm gun momma?

She needs to get herself a large, professionally trained bodyguard dog and take it everywhere.

A few bleeding liberals later, the problem will stop.

My father was a big advocate for sleeping with a loaded gun.

For a time as a young man he lived with his sister.
Her husband was an abusive drunk, and gotten physical with her more than once.

He showed the gun to his brother-in-law and said “This will be with me at all times, and if you ever come after my sister again, you sonofa b****, I’ll kill you.”

He did not hit her again, so long as my dad lived with them.
After that she got smart and divorced him.

My dad was this mild-mannered retired engineer who everyone said reminded them of Fred Rogers. But I absolutely believe that if this bloke would have come after his sister again, he would have shot him.

Pam Bondi said that "someone" is going to end up getting hurt - and I think she meant shot.
The Libtards need to be reminded that we normally carry.

Massive lawsuits against the folks funding them would be better.

Same here.

“I sleep with a loaded gun.” Was she referring to her husband, or to a weapon under her pillow?

Churchill had a funny story about his first trip to the Kremlin to meet with Stalin. As part of the honor and hospitality that Stalin provided to Churchill, Winston discovered, as he was getting in bed in his room at the Kremlin, that Stalin had ordered that a loaded revolver be placed beneath Churchill’s pillow. Stalin considered that an honor and a message of his goodwill, he gave Churchill a means of self-defense in case nefarious actors might wish to disrupt the potential World War 2 alliance post Barbarossa.

There’s a long tradition of this is times of strife.

I sleep next to a loaded gun. I sit awake with a loaded gun. I stand and walk awake with a loaded gun. I don’t carry it in the shower but it ain’t far away. I’m so use to it, its become part of getting dressed in the morning. I wish more people carried. Less mischief that way.
