In two separate cases this week, gun control activists called for harming gun owners.
The Daily Caller reported on Monday:
An unidentified woman was reportedly ejected from a Connecticut gun hearing Monday after she was spotted sending a text threatening to shoot a 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.
The woman appeared to be directing her ire at Republican Connecticut state Sen. Rob Sampson, who describes himself as a Constitutional conservative and is an NRA “Defender of Freedom Award” recipient.

And Fox News reports that in Maryland:
Democratic Party Secretary Robbie Leonard took to social media to post photos from a Maryland House Judiciary Committee meeting in late February, where gun rights activists wore “We Will Not Comply” shirts during the hearing on additional gun control measures, along with a message calling the advocates ‘homegrown terrorists’ and calling on his followers to “dox” them.
Doxing is a practice of researching and broadcasting over the Internet the personal and private information of an individual or organization, normally with malicious intent.
