As you know, Barack Obama is a staunch supporter of a ban on guns. Obama doesn’t think much of your rights to protect yourself by owning a gun.

As an Illinois Senator, Obama voted to uphold local gun bans and imposed strict restrictions on the purchase of weapons. Still, Chicago remains the most violent city in America.

This is the story of a woman who was raped by a violent registered sex offender who should have been behind bars for the rest of his sorry life.

The 57-year-old woman was home alone one night about six weeks ago, when she heard glass breaking in her basement.

She tried to run out her front door but was met there by Ronnie W. Preyer, 47, who punched her in the face before forcing her back inside her home where he raped her.

But the story doesn’t end there.

The woman was home alone again on Friday about 2:15 AM when she heard sounds in her basement. It was Preyer breaking in through the same basement window. Police would later find caulk residue from the recently repaired basement window on his clothing.

The woman tried to call 911, but Preyer cut off her electricity from the breaker panel in the basement. Terrified, the woman retrieved a shotgun given to her by a neighbor after the first rape incident. She listened intently in the dark as she waited.

Soon she heard pounding on her basement door. As Preyer came crashing through the door, she fired a single shotgun blast in his direction and then ran next door to her neighbor’s house, still carrying the shotgun.

Police arrived to find a bleeding Preyer stumbling away from the house. He was taken by ambulance to a local hospital where he later died from his injuries.

The coroner classified the case as a justifiable homicide. The woman was not charged.

This is how all stories involving violent criminals should end. Unfortunately, with Obama in power posing a threat to the second amendment rights of all — the law abiding citizens of America will continue to be the innocent victims.

Gabrielle Union attended the HFPA Salute To Young Hollywood Party in L.A. Wednesday night. Once again she was pictured alone, but I hear she didn’t arrive or leave alone. I guess her date was camera shy.

Here’s Tyrese Gibson looking sharp at the HFPA Salute To Young Hollywood party.


Actress Kerry Washington looked dazzling on the red carpet!



Actress Dania Ramirez also looked spectacular in leather pants and a corset. She could easily pass for one of Rihanna’s backup dancers! Rihanna’s influence is all up and through Hollywood these days!



On the other hand, Naomi Campbell looked like a well-dressed bag lady on her way to Nobu 57 in NYC yesterday.

Infamous drag queen, RuPaul, teams up with the LOGO network to find the next ultimate drag queen. The new show, titled RuPaul’s Drag Race, pits seasoned drag veterans against burlesque newcomers to the drag scene.

It’s RuPaul’s job to separate the Hagathas from the ultra-fierce and crown the Ultimate Drag Diva.

I will be watching when RuPaul’s Drag Race premieres in February. But I have one problem with the show already: its host.

Is RuPaul confused about his fabulousness? Why is he dressed like a Wall Street stock broker with too much starch in his skivvies?

Tyler Perry would have made a better host, I think.

I hear that the Grand Hustle offices looks like the inside of Santa’s toy factory! The toys are part of a stash that T.I. bought for his 6 kids for Christmas and he doesn’t want them to see.

It must be hard buying toys for kids who have everything. But T.I. and Tiny came through with special, unique gifts for their children. Click here to see one of the toys that T.I. bought for his kids this Christmas.

Meanwhile, yesterday while out running errands I placed calls to the labels to inquire about Christmas goodies for my readers who have supported their artists all year.

Grand Hustle came through once again in the clutch with offers of tickets, backstage passes and other goodies that I can’t mention yet!

Tracye Bryant of Grand Hustle and Kind of a Big Deal, wants to make one reader’s Christmas wishes come true.

She is giving up two front row tickets and two backstage passes to T.I.’s Grand Hustle Christmas Explosion next Tuesday (12/23) at the Macon Centreplex Coliseum in Macon, Georgia.

The winner will also receive two expensive, hand made scarves that T.I. will sign when you meet him backstage.

There are other goodies that I can’t mention, but you will love!

To qualify for the Christmas goodies, all you have to do is be nice. Once again, the Say Something Nice Challenge is on!

The nicest comment in any thread will win the tickets. Good luck!!

Many thanks to Tracye Bryant (Grand Hustle and Kind of a Big Deal), who is pictured here with her good friend Bankhead (V-103).

Hi Sandra,

I read your blog daily to get the scoop and I would love it if you would post this picture of me and reality TV star, Dr. Rey. I ran into him here in Houston at The Galleria (Nov.’08). He is really a sweetheart. He was very down to earth and approachable.

Thanks,

Annie
