Connecticut – -(AmmoLand.com)- It is being reported that an as yet to be identified woman gun-control activist was removed from a Connecticut gun control hearing Monday after she was spotted sending a text threatening to shoot a Republican lawmaker and NRA members.

“If I had a gun, I’d blow away Sampson, and a large group of NRA,” a photo of the text message-in-progress reads, according to a tweet.
From the photo, the woman appeared to be directing her threats at Republican Connecticut state Sen. Rob Sampson, who is one of the few Constitutional conservatives in the state legislature and is a past NRA “Defender of Freedom Award” recipient.
Several gun control measures were set to be discussed in Hartford on Monday before the Judiciary Committee, including:
- Mandatory Gun Storage Laws
- A measure requiring anyone open-carrying a firearm to produce a permit if asked by police
- A move to regulate “ghost guns” or 3-D printed firearms and components
- A bill prohibiting cities and towns from enacting their own firearms laws
Why are the ones who are always calling for more gun control the same ones who seem to have the least personal self-control?
