    gun safety legislation got death threats, including some that rose to the level of prosecution, it is beyond irresponsible for this guy to say that. It's that type of rhetoric that helps to rile people up to do such stupid things:

    The Denver district attorney's office on Monday charged a Colorado Springs man with harassment involving ethnic intimidation stemming from a series of profanity-laced e-mails he sent to Rep. Rhonda Fields.
    Franklin Glenn Sain, 42, also was charged with attempting to influence a public servant, a felony. He is scheduled to make a court appearance Friday.
    Sain told Denver police he sent Fields, D-Aurora, six e-mails filled with profanity and sexual and racial epithets and left similar voice mails between Feb. 13 and 15.
    One of the e-mails said he hoped Fields would meet the same fate as a congresswoman who was shot in the head.

    Police also believe Sain sent Fields an unsigned, threatening letter that said: "I keep my 30 Round Magazines There Will Be Blood! I'm Coming For You!" according to an arrest affidavit.
    The letter also mentioned Fields' daughter and said: "Death to Both."

    Furthermore, if you will remember Colorado's head of corrections (a Colorado cabinet member) was assassinated a few weeks ago. The same group he did that is thought to be killing prosecutors in Texas.

    Someone from the GOP needs to tell this guy to stick a sock in it!

      I did not put two and two together, as simple a process as it may be.


      What we call god is merely a living creature with superior technology & understanding. If their fragile egos demand prayer, they lose that superiority.

      •  Yeah, that lobbying group is hot headed ... (3+ / 0-)

        Here's an example of a second rep from that group:

        A gun lobbyist who faces an ethics charge ripped lawmakers hearing the complaint Wednesday and announced he would no longer participate in the investigation.
        Joe Neville, political director of Rocky Mountain Gun Owners, said the legislative rule he is accused of violating is overbroad and unconstitutional.
        "I've decided not to be the model penitent for your unconstitutional tribunal," he said, and left the Ethics Committee hearing.
        But the three lawmakers appointed to the committee — Sens. Irene Aguilar, D-Denver, and Mark Scheffel, R-Parker, and Rep. Dan Pabon, D-Denver — said they have more questions for Neville. They want him to return for next week's hearing.
