Maya Angelou: Poet, Writer, Gun Lover

by AWR HAWKINS | Breitbart  |  published on May 30, 2014

Maya Angelou died at her North Carolina home on May 28, but not without leaving us with her poetry, her writings, and at least one account of her love for guns.

According to the Chicago Tribune, Angelou told TIME magazine about her love for guns during a 2013 interview:

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

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

TIME: Have you every fired a weapon?

ANGELOU: Of course!
