    Pro-gun activists threaten to kill state lawmaker over bill they misunderstood

    Pro-gun activists threaten to kill state lawmaker over bill they misunderstood | US news | The Guardian

    Virginia state legislator Lee Carter wrote a bill to allow teachers to strike. Pro-gun activists wrongly concluded it threatens their rights

    Virginia’s only socialist state legislator said he has been the target of multiple death threats over a bill that pro-gun activists misinterpreted as a potential threat to their rights.

    The legislation introduced by Lee Carter, a 32-year-old Bernie Sanders-endorsed socialist, would allow public school teachers to strike without being fired, and has in fact nothing to do with guns. But some gun rights activists wrongly interpreted it as an attempt to fire law enforcement officials who might refuse to comply with gun control laws introduced by Virginia’s new Democratic legislative majority.

    Not much of a contribution for an OP. It's an ad hom and flame, nothing else.

    Incredible stupidity.

    Perhaps before allowing someone the right to purchase a firearm they have to show that they can read.

    Read the article...there is nothing but the state congressmans word that this even happened. Now...if it DID, then anyone stupid enough to make a threat to someones life should be investigated and if found guilty hammered with the full force of the law. But all that article says is "when some gun rights activists read the bill, they claimed it meant something entirely different" and then goes on to talk about Northams actual gun control efforts.

    How do we know they're "pro-gun activists"?

    Why do they want to take our guns? Did I read that correctly?

    You need to explain why the misconception exist. There has to be something in the bill that caused this supposed confusion.

    I don't 'need' to explain anything. Contact that news source.
