Think Right Wing Gun Nuts Are Harmless Kooks?

Sandy Hook Parent Threatened by Crazy NRA Types

They Don't Care if Someone Lost a Child in a Preventable Massacre at a Grade School

People who support unlimited gun rights like to say they are on the side of safety and sanity.  They are not.  They are on the side of reckless behaviour and insanity.  Consider the case where a grieving parent of a child killed at the Sandy Hook mass shooting had to face intolerable fear and cruelty from the crackpots who want unlimited guns at any price.

You’re gonna die’: Woman indicted in threats to father of Sandy Hook victim

A woman in Florida was charged with making death threats to the father of a boy who was killed in the Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting massacre — threats she made because she believed the attack was staged. 

Earlier this year, the boy’s father, Lenny Pozner, objected to a professor who has repeatedly argued that the massacre was an elaborate hoax, and the professor was fired. Afterward, Pozner started receiving death threats on his phone.
He was with his daughters when he checked his voicemail, but he quickly shut it off, alarmed.
“You’re gonna die you [expletives and slurs deleted],” he heard.  “… And what are you going to do about it?
“You can do absolutely nothing. … this is coming to you real soon [expletive deleted]. You going to die,” and “You [expletive deleted] look behind you, justice is coming to you real soon.”

Yep, these are the people the gun lobby is fighting for.  As for the rest of us we are fighting for the rights and decency and compassion for the parents of this child.  As for the person making the threats, Lucy Richards, anybody believe she will get a long prison sentence?  Anybody?  Didn't think so.  After all she was just exercising her God given 2nd amendment rights to inflict horrible pain on another suffering family.
