This smells like crap to me. Anti-government folk going after State leaders (some of whom are Republican) instead of Federal reps? This sounds like the overture to a manufactured crisis... the kind that the US AG intends not to waste.

I thought that they are trying to get the governors to force the feds to honor the states so called state rights/home rule as Florida and few a few other states have done recently.
I agree that we do need to rein in the Nobama and his administration.

Woe betide the citizen, however, who dares piss off the wrong people declaring this should be done.The letters have been sent by Guardians of the Free Republics, a group that says it wants to "restore America" by peacefully dismantling parts of government.
Of course, in this climate, the mere claim that it's being taken as threatening, the mere claim by people as feeling threatened, will likely be sufficient for some heavy-handed action. Just watch.
I'm not sure why this is an FBI thing, or why it was even an issue (other than who sent the letter).
It was a "non-threatening" letter asking them to step down. I'm sure government officials get hundreds of those letters all the time, right?
Voicing dessent peacfully... why is this a problem?
Walk softly ...
Of course, we haven't seen the original letters and don't know what the actual words were.
We must understand that the threat of removing a politician or an appointee from office or a government job is the same as being a threat of death, at least to them, because they either have or desire no outside life, or ever want to believe that they might actually have to leave the state capital or Washington, D.C., because so few of them ever really have to go, like ya know.
IF you dont' know who sent them, how do you know really who they were ??? I'm quite serious.
In the past, many times it was found out a long time later, that people of the party they were directed at, were actually the one's sending them to make it look like they were from "the other guys".
Until everyone knows for certain who sent them, I take it all with a grain of salt and recommend not jumping to any conclusions. IF it was one small group of people, like the infamous 6 in Michigan (like they think it was), why blame everyone else or a whole party for it.? You just never know.
Remember, Obama has at least one good friend who bombed a hospital, the Pentagon, and police stations in San Fransisco, as well as was heading and plotting with the Black Panthers to kill "teenagers" across California in order to cause the middle class to be shaken ... and to create chaos, fear, etc..... as well as to assasinate as many police officers as possible. During one 3 yr period in that time, there are still about 250 unsolved murders of San Fransisco police officers.... someone would pull up in a car next to them, or walk up..... shoot them, then drive off.
I think that's far worse than a letter that's being "interpreted" for us, rather than publishing it and letting people see it.
I can't imagine any court in the land equating legitimate and legal removal from office with "threat" in the terms we're using here, and in the terms one should take from the "bullet" comments by the guy in the note to Pelosi.
Any schmuck who would actually dare use the word "threat" to describe being legally and legitimately removed from office (ie, via election, recall or other political drumming from the office), then that person is in greater need of a warrant-less SWAT take-down and involuntary psych commitment than Pyles ever was.
But then, the threat to Murray (putting a "bullet through the eyes") goes well beyond any muddled, vaunted opinions of oneself that some of these politicos have from time to time. There is simply no call for death threats. Eject the person legally from office using the mechanisms we have. Definitely, don't go acquiring a CHL and then dragging it through the mud with such criminal acts as this. This sort of thing is worthy of involuntary commission for a psych eval, absolutely. Do a crime worthy of eval, get taken for eval. This is the sort of situation that statute was meant for.

How we behave as gun owners is important. Posturing and threatening does not serve us well in the public eye.
These articles contradict. One says 'peacfully dismantle' another says there were 'threats of violence', etc.
