    Filing a complaint with the local PD that would be filed and never thought of again is one thing. But the FBI?
    Why not the FBI? Isn't saying that all members of a certain group be shot considered a terrorist threat?

    If the FBI doesn't think it's in their jurisdiction, they can say so. At least it was called to their attention and that's a good thing.

    I just want to clarify what I asked the OP.....to me if he honestly feels the dude is threat then by all means contact LE. If he does not think the guy is serious then I personally think it is a waste of manpower to call the FBI and start an investigation "to make a point".
    Then I heard the voice of the Lord saying, “Whom shall I send? And who will go for us?”
    And I said, “Here am I. Send me!”

    Got to ask this: Are you doing it to make a point or are you truly afraid?
    I think its good, give these people a dose of what they do to the otherside everyday.. I think its time to stand our ground and fight back in legal ways but be tough at the same time...

    As from the OP,the poster of the offensive tweet was a leader of the Democratic Party in his area. That is the example to follow? Calling for anyone you disagree with, to be shot? Sounds like a dictatorship.
    You gain strength, courage, and confidence by every experience in which you really stop to look fear in the face. You are able to say to yourself, "I have lived through this horror. I can take the next thing that comes along." . . . You must do the thing you think you cannot do. Eleanor Roosevelt

    Ummm...maybe, maybe not. Try tweeting that message only substitute the word "President" for "NRA members" and see if a black SUV doesn't pull up in your driveway within an hour or so.

    so,based on your thoughts,I could say all democrats should be shot,all professional athletes, etc,and that's not a threat if it came from a role as a leader? So online posts mean nothing to you?

    I have one of those on my local news paper blogs and all he wants is a reaction. He will phrase things 5 different ways until he gets a response. then its "see what I said that's how they are". all they want is attention to make them feel important and have their 5 minutes of public light and when you help him do that you are sinking to his level. Bottom feeders feed on the lowest level and that's what he is.

    I would agree with you on not feeding the trolls but according to the OP, this guy is a leader in the Democratic party around Houston. He should be held to a higher standard than some crank with a blog.

    What does having to be held to a "higher standard" have anything to do with if you should call the FBI? I would be more concerned about so called threats from a regular no name whack job off the street.

    And his high ranking position is a precinct chairman.....
    Then I heard the voice of the Lord saying, “Whom shall I send? And who will go for us?”

    I was replying to Stan's comment about people who say things just to get a response out of others...not about calling the FBI.

    And I'll bet dollars to donuts they he WANTS a reaction from ANYBODY to justify what he is saying. As soon as he gets the reaction he is going to milk it for all its worth and twist it around until he is the "good guy". He is just fishing like westboro does, no reaction to what he says eventually he fades until no one cares

    so he wants people to think he's an idiot who can't control himself? Mission accomplished.

    You are misunderstanding He IS an idiot who can't control himself but he wants to justify who and what he is and sacrifice someone to attain what he wants. Publicity
