Rep. Sherry Appleton: They threatened her.

As per the article in The Seattle Times:

A Washington state lawmaker last week withdrew a bill to limit self-defense rights after saying she receiving threats by telephone and email that have made her fear for her life.

ZOMG! Them evil Gun Nuts! What did they say to that poor woman?

(Rep. Appleton’s assistant) Bezon declined to provide copies of emails or transcripts of voice messages to The Associated Press, saying she wanted to spare Appleton, who has not seen the worst of them, the details contained therein.

Whut?? But, Are we supposed to take the word of the assistant? Should we?

One of the perceived threats was forwarded to the state House of Representatives’ security office, said House Security Director Mark Arras.
“There was no direct or immediate threat, but there was disturbing language,” said Arras, adding that his office discussed it with the Washington State Patrol and continues to monitor the situation.

I have the feeling that somebody said “damn” on the voice mail, the assistant (and maybe the whole office) and freaked out. Or maybe the deluge of calls opposing her bill was so overwhelming that the only way she could drop it without losing face was to use the old  “They threatened me!”  excuse.

Backbone: Not available in that office.

  1. A Washington state lawmaker last week withdrew a bill to limit self-defense rights after saying she receiving threats by telephone and email that have made her fear for her life.

    Let me see if I’ve got this straight. She wanted to force people to retreat instead of protecting themselves with deadly force, but now that she may have to protect herself with deadly force, she no longer wants people to be forced to retreat.

    Nothing to see here folks, just another political hypocrite.

    OMG! A sneaky hypocrite at that…

    “It’s unfortunate, because Newtown happened, and that riled up so many people,” Appleton said. “I think it would have gone unnoticed if it hadn’t been for Newtown.”

  2. “I think it would have gone unnoticed if it hadn’t been for Newtown.”

    And I would’ve gotten away with it, too, if it weren’t for you meddling kids!

  3. This is actually a good thing, friends.

    These gun-grabbers are SO cowardly, that mere words on a phone message will make them retreat on their legislation?

    Well, there you go! That’s what we should be doing! Phone their office and call them a doody-head! If we can call names rather than shoot people, let’s do it!
