NYPD investigating death threats to Democratic congresswoman over gun bills

The New York City Police Department is investigating calls to Rep. Carolyn Maloney (D-NY) threatening her life in response to proposed gun control legislation.

Maloney told The New York Daily News that she had canceled an appearance at awards ceremony on Tuesday night after receiving the death threats by phone.

“I couldn’t go. Who knows what could happen?” Maloney said. “I think any member of Congress would be scared after what happened to my good friend Gabby Giffords.”

5. Just a "responsible gun owner" using 2nd Amendment solutions to protect RKBA.

That's reasonable, right?

9. Paranoid gunners feel embolden

They feel embolden by Congress's refusal to budge on any kind of gun reform. I think they believe they can get away with this shit. Their paranoia is validated by many members of Congress as it is, not to mention the RW noise machine.

It's not much of a leap to take it to the next level and threaten people, or in some cases actually assassinate them.
