Anti-Gun Activist Tossed From Gun Hearing After Threatening to Shoot GOP Lawmaker, NRA Members

A woman was reportedly expelled from a gun hearing after she threatened to “blow away” a state GOP lawmaker and NRA members.

A hearing was held in Hartford, Connecticut on Monday to discuss new legislation calling for tougher gun laws following the accidental shooting of a teenage boy.

One of the anti-gun activists ironically threatened to shoot the place up and was subsequently removed from the hearing.

“If I had a gun, I’d blow away Sampson and a large group of NRA,” a text message from an unidentified woman read. (screenshot below)

The anti-gun activist threatened Republican Connecticut State Senator Rob Sampson, a staunch supporter of the 2nd Amendment and defender of the NRA.

A variety of gun control measures were discussed in Monday’s hearing before the Judiciary Committee, including safe storage of firearms in the home following the death of 15-year-old Ethan Song, a teen who accidentally shot himself with a gun belonging to his friend’s father — Ethan Song reportedly did not realize the gun was loaded when he shot himself.

The Daily Caller reported that other measures discussed in Mondays hearing included:

  • A measure requiring anyone open-carrying a firearm to produce a permit if asked by police
  • A move to regulate “ghost guns” or 3-D printed firearms and components
  • A bill prohibiting cities and towns to enact their own firearms laws

And these unhinged, violent leftist nut jobs want to take away our guns.
