President targeted with ricin letter over gun control

Pres. Obama
Associated Press / NBC New York: A threatening letter was mailed to President Obama that is similar to two letters containing poisonous ricin sent to Mayor Bloomberg and his anti-gun group, officials confirmed Thursday.

The letter, first reported by NBC 4 New York, is being tested for ricin. It was received Wednesday at an off-site facility, and did not reach the White House, according to the Secret Service.

“This letter has been turned over to the FBI Joint Terrorism Task Force for testing and investigation,” said Brian Leary, a Secret Service spokesman.

The text of that mailing was identical to the letters sent to the mayor and his gun group, which threatened: ”what’s in this letter is nothing compared to what I’ve got planned for you,” police and law enforcement sources said.

One letter was discovered at City Hall’s mail sorting facility at 100 Gold St. on Friday, a law enforcement source told NBC 4 New York. It appeared to contain a pink, oily substance when a mail worker came across it and was immediately flagged as suspicious.

An initial field test didn’t bring up any sign of ricin, a source said. But more preliminary testing Wednesday showed the letter tested positive for ricin.

An identical letter containing ricin was sent to the Mayors Against Illegal Guns headquarters in Washington, D.C. and was opened on Monday, police said.
As I pointed out in an earlier post, stooges for the gun lobby having been painting the Second Amendment as an assassination/terrorism clause. It really was only a matter of time before someone took them seriously.

And now that someone has answered the call for revolution, expect these “patriots” to distance themselves as far as possible from the consequence of that call. Because at heart, these would-be assassins are mostly cowards.
