Gun-Control Activist Caught Texting Threats To Shoot Politicians, NRA Members

A gun-control activist was removed from the Capitol after she texted her desire to shoot gun rights supporters.

Hartford, CT – An anti-gun activist was removed from the annual Judiciary Committee hearing on guns after someone saw her texting threats to shoot a lawmaker and National Rifle Association (NRA) members from inside the Capitol building.

“If I had a gun, I’d blow away Sampson and a large group of NRA…” read the in-progress message on the woman’s cell phone when another alert observer in the gallery saw it and captured a picture.

Republican State Senator Rob Sampson is a staunch Second Amendment supporter, Newsweek reported.

Sampson received the 2014 Defender of Freedom Award from the NRA for his battle against Connecticut State Senate Bill 1160, legislation which would have made it illegal for anyone under 18 to purchase a long gun.

The NRA labeled SB 1160 "one of the most egregious anti-gun bills in U.S. history" and gave Sampson an “A+” rating for his support of gun rights, according to Newsweek.

Capitol Police were alerted to the woman’s text messages by Second Amendment supporters, and officers removed her from the hearing, the Connecticut Post reported.

Capitol Police Sergeant Jeffrey Barter said police determined there was no threat, and did not arrest the woman.

It was not known if she was a member of any of the anti-gun groups who were there to support gun control legislation, the Connecticut Post reported.

Monday’s hearing focused on discussion of several proposed gun control measures that included an update to safe storage laws and a bill prohibiting cities and towns from enacting their own gun laws, according to The Epoch Times.

Discussions also included a measure that would require anyone open-carrying a firearm to produce a permit if asked by police and a move to regulate 3-D printed firearms and components.

This is an example of what the mindset of the left resort to when they do not agree with an opinion different than their own.

The left is actually quite violent and they want to use violence against whoever opposes them. That's why you see all the attacks by leftists on conservatives for simply wearing a hat. They possess a very thuggish mindset and mob-rule is their desired outcome. They want to tell everyone how to live their lives and what to think and how to behave.

"Gun control" is really people control and gun redistribution to strictly government entities, it is about the State maintaining its monopoly on Deadly Force. This person is what Lenin would call a "useful idiot" in that effort. There will be a concerted effort to disarm the citizens and it won't be done with mean texts. People better wake up. Time is running out. Make the choice, die on your feet or live on your knees.

She made a threat&incited the shooting of 2nd Amend advocates, she should have been charged. We The American ppl should be concerned about the separate laws & double standards. The law is the law& I'm tired of the double standards,that goes for illegals&refugees too, they are free to kill,rape,commit pedophilia,set up terrorist training camps on American soil, when they should be arrested,charged& deported on a plane back to authorities in Middle East. We are the targets in our own Country.

“If non members of the NRA would stop shooting people, gun violence would decline 100%.”

The members of the extreme left (~ages 17 to 32) were raised on instant gratification. Mommy and Daddy continually caved to their nearly every request. Now, because they want something different than what others want, they need the instant gratification and getting what they want and try to shut down a differing opinion/view/activity /law by any means necessary.... even if it means violence. The need to have their own way is so great they will have an "adult" version of a child's temper tantrum. I use the term adult loosely as these are typically not fully functioning adults. These folk only appear as adults yet they are in reality just fully grown children. The thought process and ability to debate their own view is sorely lacking so they resort to force and expressing their own "hissy fit" in an attempt to influence the outcome and get what they want. Notice who is doing the childlike screaming ,literally screaming on camera. This is what most others are dealing with - violent ,pouting children who cannot function as true adults. Hence, the incessant penchant for video games , living at home , meaningless jobs, fascination with weed /drugs, no goals, no drive, no motivation despite their being 24, 28, 30 , or even older.

Is anyone here really surprised by some Libtard Demonrat's actions or attitude of "do as I say or else". They are all a threat to true liberty and freedom but I have faith in the 3%. They defeated tyranny before and if needed we will beat it again.
