Man Arrested for Threatening Lawmakers Pushing Gun Control

Police have arrested a Colorado man for sending racially and sexually offensive e-mails to state Rep. Rhonda Fields (D), "including one that said he hoped she would meet the same fate as a congresswoman who was shot in the head," the Denver Post reports.

One of the e-mails called Fields "pathetic" and also mentioned state Rep. Beth McCann (D). It said, "Hopefully somebody Giffords both of your asses with a gun..."

The man told police he was "just voicing some frustrations" about efforts to tighten state gun laws.
