Arrested Colorado man threatened lawmaker:‘Hopefully somebody Gifords both of your asses with a gun'

Denver police arrested a 42-year-old man for allegedly threatening a state lawmaker, her daughter and a colleague in a series of voice mails and emails.

The Denver Post reported on Monday that Franklin Glenn Sain was arrested on Feb. 22 on suspicion of harassing state Rep. Rhonda Fields (D) and unlawfully attempting to influence a public official.

Sain admitted to using racial and sexual slurs against Fields in a series of emails dated between Feb. 13 and Feb. 15. is also believed to have sent an unsigned letter to her office threatening “Death to both” her and her daughter, as well as the message, “I keep my 30 Round Magazines There Will Be Blood! I’m Coming For You!”

One of Sain’s emails, sent on Feb. 15, said of Fields and fellow state Rep. Beth McCann (D), “Hopefully somebody Gifords both of your asses with a gun,” an apparent reference to former Rep. Gabrielle Giffords (D-AZ), who was shot in the head in a public attack. Giffords survived, but the mass shooting resulted in the deaths of six people.

3. They never threaten the ones who need to be threatened

Like Cantor, Boner, the Brother Koch, the ones who do legitimately pose a real and significant threat to a number of people.

7. Franklin Glenn Sain

is the epitome of gun nut, and the poster child for why gun control is necessary.

10. Is your ex college roommate Manti Te'o's girlfriend by any chane?

Gun nuts are the dregs of society. Any piece of legislation that is in opposition of their goals and agenda should be applauded.

11. Don't be silly.

She's a tree-hugging enviromentalist and a mom. I'll be sure and tell her you think she's the dregs of society.

Agreed the guy shouldn't have a gun...or get his hands on ANY other weapon. How do you propose to do that?

8. America's Angry White Guy epidemic is getting out of control.

Children like Frankie need to be sedated.

12. It's like a self-fulfilling prophecy

1. Be fearful and vigilant over the possibility of the government taking your guns
2. Threaten local legislator with violence so he knows beyond a doubt that you're serious about keeping your guns at all costs
3. Get arrested, convicted for a felony and lose your guns...

13. This bastard should be horsewhipped!

Not only did he threaten Rep. Fields, he threatened her daughter, and did this knowing she lost a son to gun violence.

40 lashes!
