Listening to the Fox news tonight brought forth a short commentary indicating that some MN House members has been threatened to pass the new CCW law .
Fox news reported that some references were made to knowing where family lives or some such thing as part of the threats.

Since it has always been clear to anyone here that the House was never an obstical in passage of the Minnesota Personal Protection Act, It has me wondering. Who would make such a threat ?

Anyone who knows enough to contact a member of the House should know that the problems we have had for several years was getting it through the Senate . With the senate passage friday of the bill , the return of a right to carry law became virtualy a sure thing . So why would anybody make a threat to any House member indicating they should pass this bill or else ?

1st I asked myself what was this threat and how seriously was it made - Fox news was vague on details but did mention something about it was not considered all that serious and that no added security was planned . In that case, why was it even newsworthy ? And, who I thought would gain the most by making such a threat ? Is it possible that someone in apposition to this bill passing could have anything to do with this "news" story ? :scrutiny:

IIRC, the forces of organized gun bigotry used a trumped up threat to derail carriage reforms in Missouri. I think John Ross's site commented on that.

Here you go. Joel Rosenberg's Blog (http://www.livejournal.com/users/joelrosenberg/120059.html)

Someone claiming to be Joel Rosenberg used the Minnesota Concealed Carry Reform Now! (MNCCRN) mailer to make threats and signed the threatening messages with Joel's name.

Local, and state police along with the feds have been notified and Joel is cooperating with the authorities. Everyone including the police and the politicians know that Joel is innocent. Even the anti gun politicians made public statements to the effect that Joel could not have done that.

Edit: He has a new recent blog entry about this issue here. (http://www.livejournal.com/users/joelrosenberg/120092.html) In short, the attempt by the crazy anti to smear Joel and the rest of us backfired.

Thanks dustind ,

None of this information was given on Fox news - Humm . I wonder why they didn't feel compelled to give the more complete story ? It was 9 pm so they must have had these details and somehow left them on the cutting room floor.
I'm sure that wasn't intentional ! :rolleyes:
