New York Congresswoman Gets Death Threats For Supporting Gun Control
Rep. Carolyn Maloney received phone calls threatening her not to move forward with gun control legislation after she proposed liability insurance.
“They said they were going to kill me,” said Maloney. The Democratic congresswoman was so disturbed by the three menacing phone calls — which came about an hour apart — that she skipped a dinner Tuesday night of the Friends of the Upper East Side Historic Districts, where she was supposed to present an award. “I couldn’t go. Who knows what could happen?” Maloney told the Daily News. “I think any member of Congress would be scared after what happened to my good friend Gabby Giffords.”
Detectives are investigating the threats.
