    By the content of the letters.

    You will have to kill me and my family before you get my guns. Anyone wants to come to my house will get shot in the face. The right to bear arms is my constitutional,God-given right and I will exercise that right till the day I die. What's in this letter is nothing compared to what I've got planned for you."
    Sounds like he is a 2nd am supporter to me.

    There are far better ways to show his support than to do something as stupid as mailing a poison laced letter.

    They was sent to Obama, City Mayor Michael Bloomberg and a gun control group the mayor supports. An unnamed source claimed they had a pro-2nd Amendment stance.

    An unnamed source?????

    It isn't far-fetched to believe an anti-2A idiot is doing this in an attempt to make "gun nuts" look like idiots.

    I was just saying what the article said.

    It is also not far-fetched that it is a pro-2nd guy that is a bit off of his rocker. Like always I will wait for the investigation.

    We have NO idea what the sender of the letter thinks. My first thought was an anti-gun person trying to cause trouble for pro-gun people. I still believe that.

    The content of the letters is in the article. Please read post #5. That is from the article.

    Show me the letter... don't tell me what's in it. I can read, or I wouldn't have clicked on the story...
    I do not trust the Gubmint. I especially do not like the Blooming Idiot.

    But, I would NEVER support anyone sending letters laced with poison to the office of the POTUS or even the MAYOR of NYC.

    There are better ways to win this discussion... And it resides with the people of this country... People who need to be educated in the TRUTH about the 2nd Amendment, the overreach of the Federal Government, and the treacherous path we (as a nation) are on.

    I can't show you the letter, I don't have a picture of it. I can only go by what the article says, and I tried to post it by some source other than Info wars, Fox or Huffpo, for perceived credibility.

    1)This violent whack job appears to be pro 2nd Amendment.
    2)The violent whack job who went hunting LAPD awhile back was anti 2nd Amendment.
    3)Violent whack jobs come in all flavors, none represent me.
    4)Mayor Bloomberg has emerged as one of the most important advocates for gun control. I.E. he is promoted from obscure to contemptuous.

    I agree with your thought...the letter is so cheesy and direct that it could very likely be an anti-gunner trying to make the pro 2A folks look bad.
