Reports: Ricin-laced letters threaten gun violence

http://www.usatoday.com/story/news/n...ricin/2372183/

WASHINGTON — President Obama was sent a threatening letter similar to the ricin-tainted letters mailed to New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg and Bloomberg's Washington-based gun-control group, the Secret Service said Thursday.

The Secret Service "can confirm that the White House mail screening facility intercepted a letter addressed to the White House ... similar to letters previously addressed to Mayor Bloomberg in New York. This letter has been turned over to the FBI Joint Terrorism Task Force for testing and investigation," the agency said in a statement.

White House spokesman Josh Earnest said all presidential mail is examined at the offsite facility.

"We have precautions that are in place for these kinds of things," Earnest said.

The letter to Obama was discovered Wednesday. Federal officials close to the investigation said there had been a heightened sense of alert because of the Bloomberg letters. They said the Obama letter appeared to have the same postmark and handwriting as the ones sent to Bloomberg and Mayors Against Illegal Guns.

The Obama letter was not opened before it was shipped out for testing, the officials said.

The other letters, postmarked May 20 in Shreveport, La., were opened in New York on Friday at the city's mail facility in Manhattan and in Washington on Sunday at an office of Mayors Against Illegal Guns.

CNN, citing a source with knowledge of the letters to Bloomberg and his gun-control group, said those letters include this:

"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."

The letters "obviously referred to our anti-gun efforts, but there's 12,000 people that are going to get killed this year with guns and 19,000 that are going to commit suicide with guns, and we're not going to walk away from those efforts," Bloomberg said.

Bloomberg said he didn't "feel threatened."

New York Police Department spokesman Paul Browne would not confirm the language in the letters, but said the "subject matter was gun owner rights and they contained the same threatening language."

The letters addressed to Bloomberg and Mark Glaze, director of Mayors Against Illegal Guns, both tested positive for ricin, New York Police Department spokesman Paul Browne said. More testing was scheduled.

Three New York officers involved in the case experienced mild diarrhea Saturday, a minor symptom of ricin exposure, Browne said. In Washington, Glaze showed no symptoms after opening that letter, the group said.

Bloomberg ranks among the nation's most outspoken gun-control advocates. Mayors Against Illegal Guns was co-founded in 2006 by Bloomberg and Boston Mayor Thomas Menino, who serve as its co-chairs. It claims a membership of more than 850 mayors in 44 states.

Shreveport (La.) Mayor Cedric Glover said Shreveport police are working with the FBI and Joint Terrorism Task Force to determine who sent the letters and where the ricin came from.

"We are also taking the necessary steps to protect United States Postal Service ... as well as any of our citizens from any potential harm,'' Glover said.

Ricin naturally occurs in castor beans and can be fatal if inhaled or ingested. Ricin-tainted threats have been sent recently to Obama, lawmakers and judges.

Last week, a Washington state man was accused of including ricin in a death threat mailed to a federal judge. Matthew Buquet, 38, of Spokane, was being held without bond.

In late April, a Mississippi man was arrested on charges of mailing poisoned letters to Obama, Republican Sen. Roger Wicker and an 80-year-old judge in Tupelo, Miss. The FBI said Everett Dutschke, 41, bought castor bean seeds online late last year. Agents found traces of ricin on several objects retrieved from trash at his Tupelo home and near his martial-arts studio.

Sounds like some agent provocateur trying to make gun rights folks look bad, in order to take guns away.
Something some communist, fascists or other totalitarians might do.
Meanwhile, sheep eat it up!

Or, it's much more likely that it's just some nutbag who is sending ricin-laced letters to public officials.

We'll re-visit this when they catch this dork and I'll graciously except your acknowledgement of failure.

Nope. It could be either or. You need to read more about covert activities.

Ricin sounds like a cereal. They need to rename it something menacing. Like "liver lava" or "demonic intestines eater"

other than breitart being a wing-tard "news" organization, what's the point of that piece?

it insinuates that the treaty will somehow lead to more gun control within the us...

it doesn't offer any evidence of that claim nor does it even make the claim directly...

so what's the point of the article and what point were you trying to make by posting the link?

Please cite the portion that would do that.



It's not there, so I know you won't respond. I need to start of a list of all of the whackjob assertions you make but refuse to even try to back up.

I did in an earlier thread....but you have to be able to read it using critical thinking, how they say use unoffensive language and/or verbal sleight of hand to get it. You can't do that. You already have too much difficulty reading simple posts on a MB.

And you're wrong about me not responding for the reasons you claim. I just don't read all posts and have some on ignore. All the ignores were erased, for some reason, so I am having to put them back on.
