Rep. Carolyn Maloney (D-NY) gets death threats over proposing that gun owners carry liability insurance.
“Yesterday, several death threats were phoned into my New York office in response to news reports about a bill I authored requiring gun owners to have insurance,” the congresswoman said in a statement Wednesday morning. “The calls were fielded by young interns, who were understandably shaken by this experience.”
Maloney told the New York Daily News that the threats came in three menacing phone calls, which left her so disturbed she ended up missing a planned awards dinner Tuesday night.
“They said they were going to kill me,” she told the paper.
She said law enforcement is investigating the matter and so she won’t comment further.
America, heck yeah.
