I'm sure he's another innocent gun nut, having his reputation drug through the mud all because he sent some ricin to the President.  Geez.

Infernalist, none of those accused so far have done anything or did I miss something.

I know, right? It's like his First Amendment right to free speech is being trampled on. Free speech is dead in this country if you can no longer send a threatening letter to the President.

Secret Service officials have said there were similarities between the three letters received by Bloomberg, Obama, and Mayors Against Illegal Guns Director Mark Glaze. All three letters warned, "You will have to kill me and my family before you get my guns.

I think the bolded part may have been what set her off. I'm thinking she probably saw that in the news, and once she realized it was him she said "Oh hell no", and grabbed the kids.

Once it became clear the letters originated in rural LA/TX area, it was a virtual guarantee it was some right wing survivalist nutjob.

Relatedly, I see a lot of people in this thread need a dose of this:

Cohen the Barbarian: I'll just leave this here.

The intent was to cause panic and fear, so this is still not a laughing matter, but it appears that the media is working mightily to turn an any possible anthill into Everest.


Would that be the guy who advocated terrorism in response to expanded background checks?  Nice.  Any chance you could look up Dzohkhar Tsarnaev's thoughts on the matter?  I'm sure he'd have all kinds of brilliant insights, too.  Unlike Bob Owens, he actually put words into action, rather than write endless, "Will no one rid me of those troublesome liberals?" blog posts.

And obviously it's a right wing nut. It was sent to Obama, so that should be obvious

Probably the possibility of a dangerous neurotoxin in the same house with their kids. Most decent parents wouldn't tolerate something like that since depending on 'safety precautions' it could maybe be as dangerous as a meth lab... Plus if he was far enough gone to actually carry out something like that, she probably saw the signs a while ago and put two and two together.

AliceBToklasLives: propasaurus: Looking at her resume, she's basically an extra. Her credit on Walking Dead is as a zombie.

So if her character just growls, does that count as a speaking role?

Probably not as she more than likely is not sounds are not being recorded.

Her Facebook page is under a different last name, so they may not have been married very long. This could have been her first realization that "Hey, this guy's insane in the membrane."

At any point in your life, have you ever stopped to think "Should I try to be constructive, or just whine?"

If you haven't, I recommend stopping and giving it some mulling over.


Those letters could have been opened by children. WHY DO YOU HATE THE CHILDREN!?!?!

Different ricin letters. It wasn't the Elvis Tribute Artist, but it was one of his nutjob acquaintances trying to frame him.

How'd he managed to do that from his hoverround!!!

Doesn't he know that a gun won't stop a tank? GUUFFAWWW!

Richardson reportedly worked at the Red River Army Depot, which provides maintenance and support for military vehicles.

Hmm... oh well. He's a teabagger living off of the public's dime! Hypocrite!
  

lilplatinum: /only difference between the Taliban and the Southern Baptist Convention is that the members of the latter were not born in a society that was poor and chaotic enough for them to force their archaic beliefs upon others at gunpoint..


If only the American Left hated the Taliban a tenth of how much the hate the SBC. It is a weird call and response though from the left. They can't just say the Taliban sucks without throwing in the SBC or some other Christian group. It highlights how perverse their thinking is on who the enemies are. Do you think that the SBC is so small and so powerless that what stops them from using violence is fear? That society wouldn't be plunged into chaos if they were as evil as the Taliban?

Curious though that a religious fundamentalist like the Tsarnaev brothers supported Obama, since the right-wing hates Obama.

It doesn't make the news so it doesn't matter. It's sort of like a "missing white woman" syndrome with the media, but with guns.

Except without any of the actual persecution or harm.

The stupid thing is that no one was going to take away his guns, but now if he is convicted of assassination attempts, that IS going to be the end of his gun ownership days.

One photo on her Facebook page dated July 2012 shows her holding a large assault-style rifle and wearing a  bikini.

FRFA: "You will have to kill me and my family before you get my guns."

NO, numbnuts - they don't need to kill anyone to take your guns.  Depriving you of your freedom by incarcerating your mutant ass for a few years in prison and subsequently denying your right to possess a gun by the mere fact you are an ex-felon is sufficient.  No reason for anyone to die, despite your desperate attempt to martyr your family.
