This is what happens if you dare, DARE, to introduce legislation that would require gun owners to have liability insurance.
Rep. Carolyn Maloney (D-N.Y.) says she received death threats about gun legislation introduced last week.
"They said they were going to kill me," Maloney said, according to the New York Daily News.
She is still moving forward with the bill.
So the "good guys with guns" are defending their oh-so-important Second Amendment rights by threatening the life of a lawmaker who thinks insuring gun owners would be a good idea. And they think she's the one intruding on their rights? What about her right to live, to feel secure, to not have to look over her shoulder every time she sets foot outside?
[S]he skipped a dinner event that night.
"I couldn't go," Maloney said. "Who knows what could happen?"
Wow, she sounds really scary. The obvious solution is to kill her. Check.
But calling these loons "gun nuts" offends them. Seriously?
Irony and hypocrisy are alive and well in gun nut land.
