    I suspect he's painting himself as a victim of "left wing" death threats because he knows very well that the NRA propaganda will have sent threats against the President, his family, and gun control advocates soaring through the roof.

    Basically, this is preparing the ground for the now-ubiquitous conservative false-equivalency defense for the otherwise indefensible things they do.

    But it's possible--and even likely--that he has received some threats.  Such hateful and ignorant people often do when they make their hate and ignorance so public.  But hundreds?  Considering the exaggerating the NRA likes to do, I'm guessing a handful.  Ironically, if organizations like the NRA didn't make guns so easy to get perhaps he wouldn't have to worrty about those threats at all.
