Thanks for those links, Buzzcook. And for the support.
This Soles guy is a real puzzler... I don't want to cast judgment on him on the basis of a few rumors, but he sure has managed to get himself into some weird-looking situations with these young men, these "clients" of his.
I wonder whether he didn't bring some of this trouble on himself. I also question whether he ought to have shot at this guy for kicking at his door. But I don't question his right to have a gun in his possession for purposes of defending himself and his property. I would like to hear him explain why he thinks he should be allowed this and I shouldn't.
