A growing number of House Republicans are facing physical threats from angry constituents in their districts, leading many to fear for their safety.
In the last few weeks alone, the FBI arrested a man threatening Rep. Martha McSally's (R-Ariz.) life, a woman pursued Rep. David Kustoff (R-Tenn.) in her car, and Rep. Tom Garrett (R-Va.) heightened security at a town hall event in response to death threats. -Cristina Marcos

U.S. Rep. Claudia Tenney says she received a threatening email from a constituent Wednesday morning after a gunman opened fire on Republican members of Congress at a baseball practice.
"One down, 216 to go," the email began from a constituent who listed a name, address and telephone number in Boonville, Oneida County.
"Did you NOT expect this?" the writer added. "When you take away ordinary peoples very lives in order to pay off the wealthiest among us, your own lives are forfeit(ed). Certainly, your souls and morality were lost long before. Good riddance."

A former Falls Church Democratic Party chairman, charged with molesting two young girls, allegedly talked about hiring a hit man to kill the girls before they could be witnesses at his trial.
An inmate who was incarcerated with Michael Gardner told authorities about Gardner’s interest in hiring a hit man, prosecutor Nicole Wittmann said. Wittmann said that, according to the inmate, Gardner asked the inmate to help him hire someone to kill the two girls before his trial, which is scheduled for March 4.

CBS News has learned that a "general threat" was made against a member of Congress who made a fact-finding trip to Libya this week. The chairman of the House Oversight Committee, Rep. Darrell Issa, R-Calif., traveled to Tripoli as part of the Republican's ongoing investigation into the Sept. 11, 2012, terrorist attacks on Americans in Benghazi... Issa planned the trip to Libya in secret, but Democrats on the Oversight Committee revealed the plans in a press release last Friday when they obtained a copy of his itinerary.

#NavyYardShooting The blood is on the hands of the #NRA. Next time, let it be YOUR sons and daughters. Shame on you. May God damn you. -University of Kansas associate journalism professor David Guth
The hatred was intense. One Rhode Island professor issued a call -- later deleted -- for NRA head Wayne LaPierre's "head on a stick."
People like author Joyce Carol Oates and actress Marg Helgenberger wished for NRA members to be shot. So did Texas Democratic Party official John Cobarruvias, who also called the NRA a "terrorist organization," and Texas Republican congressman Louis Gohmert a "terror baby."
Nor were reporters, who are supposed to be neutral, much better. As The Atlantic's Jeffrey Goldberg commented, "Reporters on my Twitter feed seem to hate the NRA more than anything else, ever. " -Glenn Reynolds

I asked, “Well what is going to happen to those people we can’t reeducate, that are diehard capitalists?” And the reply was that they’d have to be eliminated. And when I pursued this further, they estimated they would have to eliminate 25 million people in these reeducation centers. And when I say “eliminate,” I mean “kill.” Twenty-five million people.

The proposed legal change would be announced and widely publicized for an extended period before it came into force. During that time, GW deniers would have a chance to change their ways and escape punishment. The police would start to identify the most influential GW deniers who had not responded to the changed legal situation. These individuals would then be charged and brought to justice.

Belling read a letter from the 12-year-old boy’s mother, detailing the alleged abusive behavior by the bus driver. Apparently, the Romney-Ryan yard sign bugs the bus driver and she’s been harassing the boy, making rude comments to him related to politics. When the driver engaged the 12-year-old boy in a political conservation, he responded by saying that Obama is pro-abortion.
The bus driver allegedly said to the child, “Maybe your mom should have chosen abortion for you.” Understandably, this really upset the boy. Other kids on the bus verified the boy’s account and are providing written statements.

Declare the NRA a terrorist organization and make membership illegal. Hey! We did it to the Communist Party, and the NRA has led to the deaths of more of us than American Commies ever did. (I would also raze the organization’s headquarters, clear the rubble and salt the earth, but that’s optional.) Make ownership of unlicensed assault rifles a felony.

SHEBOYGAN — State Sens. Joe Leibham and Glenn Grothman said they are among as many as 18 Republican senators who received a death threat following their votes to eliminate most collective bargaining powers for public workers. Grothman said he is hesitant to completely disregard the threat given the volatile atmosphere in Madison.
A note shoved under his door Wednesday night said, "The only good Republican is a dead Republican."
"Scotty Walker is dead. So are you. We know where you live." The woman then recited the Mackinac Center’s address and said, "We are coming up to destroy you."
On Sunday, Ellen Barkin expressed her hope that Tropical Storm Isaac would smash up the Republican National Convention in Tampa and drown all its delegates.
