Wash. man charged with threatening Sen. Murray - Yahoo! News
SEATTLE – A Washington state man has been charged with threatening to kill Democratic Sen. Patty Murray over her support for health care reform, leaving voicemail messages at her office saying she had a target on her back and "it only takes one piece of lead."
Federal agents arrested Charles Alan Wilson without incident in Yakima, Wash., on Tuesday.
Murray's office in Seattle reported the threats amid a rash of ugliness aimed at lawmakers who supported the sweeping federal health care legislation. Some lawmakers have been spit on and several have reported receiving threatening calls.
FBI spokesman Bill Carter said Wilson is believed to be the first person in the country arrested for such threats.
The messages to Murray were left on voicemail from a blocked telephone number, FBI Special Agent Carolyn W. Woodbury wrote in a probable cause statement. Agents said they traced the calls to Wilson's home in Selah, near Yakima.
Wilson has a .38-caliber revolver registered to him and has a concealed carry permit for it, Woodbury wrote.

There are always a few nutjobs that slip through the cracks.
How much do you want to bet every single news story will emphasize the fact that he has a permit and how that has to be the reason that he went crazy?

This only gives the Antis something to use to bolster their argument.

I wonder when the uber-left calls for scrapping the idea of an armed citizenry will begin?
As others have suggested, a few bad eggs will always stink up the place. Can't help that. But it's ludicrous to deny 300M people the ability to effectively defend themselves simply because of a few idiots like this. Find 'em, remove 'em, then get on with life, happy that the rest aren't being forcibly placed at greater risk by knuckling under to the squeals for disarming every upstanding citizen.
Your best weapon is your brain. Don't leave home without it.
How does disarming
the number of victims?

Oh great! Just what we need!

Well the good news is he was arrested and he will no longer have a permit or be able to legally own another gun in his life if he is convicted which most likely will happen.
Unstable people are everywhere. That will not change anytime soon.

Indeed he does.
Wilson needs to suffer the penalties of the broken law just like all the other dirtbags...

Yeah he's a gun owner. But I wonder if he is on the left or right on this matter. Everyone seems to be mad about something that has passed recently or looking at being passed. I had heard that they were getting serious threats when they might not be able to pass the bill. Then when it passed they started reporting on the threats like they were something new. Everyone is mad. I just wonder which side this guy claims.
Regardless, they can throw the book at him if the allegations are true for all I care.

Holy cats. I bet he has a license to drive a car, too... a half a million foot-pounds of energy just waiting to be pointed in the wrong direction. Can't they lock these lunatics up?

I'm still trying to bring myself to give a damn about Sen Murray.
Mmmmm....nope. I got nothing.

He's a coward. Threaten her AFTER the vote? If he was serious he would have skipped the phone calls and just done it.

There was a hit & run yesterday in Philly. Most likely the driver was licensed, maybe we should prevent non-leo from driving.

Calling from his own phone in this day?!?!?!?!
As Buggs would say; What a maroon!!!!!!!!
I can give you at least 3 ways to call that are untraceable to you; the guy is defiantly a sandwich short of a picnic.
In the movies they still show trying to keep a caller on the line for minutes to trace a call.......The millisecond you finish dialing they have you on a land line, a cell phone may take a couple milliseconds longer unless counter measures are taken.
