    Cops: Letters to nyc mayor test positive for ricin

    NEW YORK (AP) Two threatening letters sent to Mayor Michael Bloomberg in New York and his gun-control group in Washington contained traces of the deadly poison ricin, police said Wednesday.The anonymous letters were opened in New York on Friday at the city's mail facility in Manhattan and in Washington on Sunday at an office used by Mayors Against Illegal Guns, the nonprofit started by Bloomberg. Chief New York Police spokesman Paul Browne said preliminary testing indicted the presence of ricin in both letters but that more testing would be done.
    The people who initially came into contact with the letters showed no symptoms of exposure to the poison, but three officers who later examined the New York letter experienced some minor symptoms that have since abated, police said.
    Both the letters contained threats to Bloomberg and an oily pinkish-orange substance, Browne said. He would not comment on what specific threats were made or where the letters were postmarked.

    More ricin is being set out it seems like, this time to Bloomberg and a gun-control group he supports. People are bananas and apparently are not in favor of the democratic process when it doesnt swing their way.

    Oh the irony, the assassination didn't involve a law-abiding citizen with a registered hand gun.
    Either I'm right or you're wrong.

    Maybe that will wake the little prick up to the historical fact that tyrannical actions tend to be met with heavy resisitance.
    Neither side in an argument can find the truth when both make an absolute claim on it.

    Sending poison in a letter is the act of a mad man and a coward.

    Not a freedom fighter.

    I would think with all the past mail attacks that nothing would make it to an elected official. So I can't understand why someone would think a envelope with ricin would make it to its intended target.
    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    Violent revolution has always been power of the People should the government ever stop serving their interests. Though this ricin thing is a bit much...seriously, when was the last time that worked?

    People are in favor of the democratic process, its the gun grabbing mostly Liberal politicians that arent. The only way to roll back the 2nd Amendment is with another amendment which would require 2/3 of the states to agree on it. The so called anti-gun laws that have been pushed by the narrow minded few, are not valid if your a person who believes in adherence to the constitution.

    As far as the Ricin scare I would of course not want to see even a smuck like Bloomturd harmed by such a despicable act........ but I have to wonder if there isnt a possiblity that this is a setup & that these despicable Liberal politicians that now run this country may have had these sent to themselves to try & smear the pro 2nd Amendment crowd and help them with public opinion in the gun control push. Why would someone send Ricin knowing it would never get to the Mayor, then tell pretty much why they sent it possibly exposing themselves. This would only make it easier to find the culprit by narrowing down the field. No....... If you think about it rationally, looking at this administrations past behavior with scandals like Fast & Furious(especially), Benghazi, ect ect ect and all the Lying that these Chicago Mobsters are doing these days I wouldnt put it past them.

    I never said what the guy did was sane, nor do I condone that type of attack on politicians. However when we are in times of national distress from a political standpoint this type of behavior tends to spike, now, I'd rather a potential tyrant like Bloomberg get this type of attack than some innocent civilian when these types of things do happen. Whether that makes sense or not I don't know but while I don't condone attacking politicians I can't help but feel a little sense of justice that they got a little taste of blowback and really don't feel sorry for them.
