Threats against elected officials are a crime...

There are 320 million people in the US. At least 1/5 of them are gun owners... that is millions of gun owners... We do not have millions of deaths, so this is chocked up to the stupidity of a minority.

Additionally, this entire idea of banning someone else's tools or rights over the death of less than 1% of our population per year is asinine. There exist no other restrictions or bans which are based upon the damage to our society of less than 1%.

This and a number of commonsense reasons are why I am against gun/clip bans or limitations other than registration, background checks and mental health screenings.

Yes, every death is a tragedy, but the damage done both politically and to everyones rights is in excess to the good you do.

When debating gun control and the rights granted by the Second Amendment, heated arguments and debates are expected -- but a few people have gone too far by threatening some state lawmakers over the gun control bills currently being considered by the state legislature. Fox31 was the first to report that Franklin Sain, a 42-year-old Colorado Springs man, was arrested for making threats against Rep. Rhonda Fields (D-Aurora), the sponsor of two of the four controversial gun measures that passed the state House last week. Sain is accused of harassing Rep. Fields in emails and in a voicemail and is also charged with attempting to influence a public official, The Denver Post reports. “I am grateful for the prompt work of the Colorado State Patrol in bringing this suspect to justice," Fields said in a statement. "I also thank the Denver Police Department, which was instrumental in the investigation. I will not be deterred by threats.”

Fields is the sponsor of House Bill 1224 which bans high-capacity gun magazines and limits capacity to 15 bullets, House Bill 1229 which requires universal background checks for all private gun sales in the state, including private sales. Before the bills passed, 9News reported that several Democrats received death threats during the legislation hearing process. Freshman Rep. Joe Salazar (D-Thornton) was one of those lawmakers that received this threat via his phone's voicemail: Hey Salazar, you f--king fascist, you want to outlaw magazines? Come and f--king take them. Are you will to kill the f--king outlaw magazines, because you will f--king die.
