Angelou to TIME Magazine: “I do like to have guns around. I don’t like to carry them. But I like — if somebody is going to come into my house and I have not put out the welcome mat, I want to stop them.”
“Have you ever fired a weapon?” the interviewer asked.
“Of course! 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 Angelou, the shots came from inside the house.’ I said, ‘Well, I don’t know how that happened.’”
Now I really know why the caged bird sings. It has a .38 pointed at its head.
