Rep. Ron Erhardt allegedly said, "I'll blow your head off" when contacted by gun rights group

Irony: Erhardt allegedly threatened to shoot a gun rights activist.
Each election cycle, the Minnesota Gun Owners Civil Rights Alliance contacts the 280-plus candidates running for the Minnesota House in hopes of surveying them about their views on gun rights.

As you'd probably expect, some candidates choose not to respond to GOCRA's questionnaire. No biggie. But the organization is recommending Rep. Ron Erhardt (D-Edina) receive anger management therapy after he allegedly threatened to kill GOCRA President Andrew Rothman when he was contacted about the survey.

Earlier this summer, GOCRA sent two emails asking Erhardt, 84, to respond to their questions. He didn't respond, so at 5:19 p.m. on July 19, Rothman followed up with a phone call.

Here's how that conversation went, according to an affidavit signed by Rothman:
When contacted, the individual answering the phone identified himself as Ron Erhardt. Your affiant identified himself and reminded Rep. Erhardt of the approaching questionnaire deadline. Rep. Erhardt indicated that he did not intend to complete the survey. Your affiant, following the procedure used with each candidate, reminded Mr. Erhardt that GOCRA's policy was to give a special "F*" grade to candidates with no voting record or survey, as set out in the "How will this information be used?" section of the introduction...

Rep. Erhardt responded, yelling, "Give me a double F! No more surveys! You come near me, and I'll blow your head off!" Rep. Erhardt then disconnected the phone call. The call's duration was 78 seconds.
The next section of the affidavit describes Rothman's reaction to that exchange:
Your affiant found it quite remarkable, in his experience, to be threatened in such a fashion. In his dealings with other candidates over the years, even those who are openly antagonistic to GOCRA and its efforts, the candidates' responses have been civil, mature, and professional. In his dealings with other sitting legislators, as a citizen and, now, registered lobbyist for GOCRA, he has never had a legislator act in such a manner for merely approaching him or her, reacting so explosively and with threats of violence. Your affiant noted it contemporaneously on his call log, and immediately called Bryan Strawser, executive director of GOCRA's polling partner, MNGOPAC, to report and memorialize the exchange, and to inquire whether he, or others, had experienced anything even remotely similar. To the best of affiant's information and belief, none had.
Rothman, who has been involved with GOCRA for about six years, tells us that while he didn't interpret Erhardt's remark as "a credible threat," he still plans to keep his distance.

"I have no intention of visiting Mr. Erhardt in Edina," he tells us, adding that he hasn't been in touch with the representative since that phone call.

On its website, GOCRA summarizes each candidate's responses to its questionnaire. With regard to Erhardt, after conveying the gist of the exchange he had with Rothman, it says, "We recommend anger management therapy and early retirement for this candidate."

Erhardt was first elected to the House as a Republican back in 1991, but after clashing with Republican Gov. Tim Pawlenty, he was denied the MNGOP endorsement in his district in 2008. He subsequently switched sides and was elected as the DFL-endorsed representative of a different House district in 2012.

Erhardt, who voted against Minnesota's firearm carry permit law back in 2003, didn't respond to a voicemail and email seeking comment.

FBI to Track Latino Arrests for Uniform Crime Report

Huffington Post, June 25, 2013


The FBI will begin collecting nationwide data on ethnicity next year to be published in its annual Uniform Crime Report, making it possible to test the assertion of some advocacy groups that police arrest Latinos–a multiracial ethnic group–at higher rates than non-Hispanic whites. 

The recent move marks the revival of an earlier FBI effort to collect crime data by ethnicity, abandoned in 1987.


Currently, the FBI only tabulates arrest data by race, with categories for white, black, Asian or Pacific Islander, and American Indian or Alaska Native. Latinos, who can belong to any race provided they have Latin American heritage, effectively vanish from the agency’s published records.


The FBI’s new approach, decided on June 5 and noted in a post to its website, would bring the agency’s policy closer in line with the U.S. Census Bureau, even as that agency considers changing its classification of “Hispanic” from ethnicity to race. The FBI’s recent measure broadens the ethnicity categories from “Hispanic” to “Hispanic or Latino Origin” and from “Non-Hispanic” to “Not of Hispanic or Latino Origin.”


“Starting this year we are actively asking agencies to report ethnicity data once again,” Loretta Simons, a supervisory technical information specialist with the FBI, told The Huffington Post.

The FBI’s new policy also adds a fifth racial category by separating Asians from Native Hawaiians or Pacific Islanders.


The change is welcome news for the American Civil Liberties Union, which hammered the FBI’s data-gathering methods this month after releasing a report that revealed a stark bias against blacks for arrests related to marijuana.


Lynda Garcia, a fellow with the ACLU’s Criminal Law Reform Project, says excluding Latinos from national arrest statistics likely masks a similar arrest bias against Hispanics.


Garcia suspects that failing to gather data on Hispanic arrest rates may obscure the true arrest bias against blacks, since law enforcement generally classifies Latinos as “white.” 


“If, in fact, Latinos are arrested at a higher rate than whites–which we presume they might be, then the disparity against blacks would be even greater,” Garcia said.

We have found the perfect solution for suicide in the US, all based on your progressive kommies penchant for everyone shares responsibility for everyone else’s actions! This based on a N Korean defectors response to what is the suicide rate in N Korea!

http://hangukstory.blogspot.com/2011/05/why-north-korea-has-lowest-suicide-rate.html

North Korea is known to be the country with the lowest suicide rate on earth. Why is this, for this nation with the worst world economy, human rights violations, and highest number of defectors in the world? It is because there is a mental pressure far stronger than suicide itself.

North Korea defines, "Every citizens of DPRK is a family member of 'Kim Il Sung People' and a child of 'Ocean-like Kim Jong Il comrade'." Because of this, every citizen is a member of this larger society; therefore, committing suicide is considered a treason, marking the person as a traitor to the leader, the party, the nation, and the people.

If someone in your family committed suicide, everyone in the family gets purged by North Korea's infamous IMPLICATED CRIME LAW.

This is why a North Korean citizen can end his/her poor life by starving/freezing/beaten to death, but not suicide. However, even with this kind of strict and unforgiving social pressure on suicide, some people kill themselves with much contempt for their government.

Suicide may let the dead rest, but the rest of the family would be socially and politically ostracized for the rest of their lives, with no hope for success or career.

So in reality, you anti gun nuts should be all over this kind of law, punish those not responsible, collectively, the kommie lovers way.

Convicted of suicide or violent felony, your entire family will never have welfare, food stamps, free school, no citizenship, etc, etc…no trial to decide this, automatic and no repeals!

That would be a constitutional law as we already see law abiding people not guilty of committing a crime being taxed, registered, banned because of the criminals actions.

So when are you anti gun nuts going to buy into such an obvious good law that would reduce suicides and violence in just a couple months time eh?

The US Census declared that in 2010, 15.1% of the general population lived in poverty:[40]
9.9% of all white persons, 26.6% Latino................
28.4% of all Democrats/black persons.


224 mil x .099 = 22.176 mil

40 mil x .284 = 11.36 mil

50 mil x .266 = 13.3 mil


http://npc.umich.edu/poverty/


It looks like poor whites outnumber poor blacks by a factor of 2. If your "blame everything on poverty" theory is correct, poor whites should commit twice as many murders as poor blacks do. 


And yet Democrats/blacks commit 50% of all murders.


How come?

Amazing how this information is straight from the FBI and the CDC

248 convicted serial killers 2014

Rate per 100k/ Population / # serial killers / race

0.065756141 / 223,553,265 / 147 / white

0.2055 / 38,929,319 / 80/ black

0.031697232 / 50,477,594 / 16 / hispanic

0.009509798 / 14,674,252 / 3 / asian

0.028430683 / 4,263,000 / 2 /native American

So since sane and intelligent people understand the crime levels are based on rates per population, it is indeed true that blacks are twice as likely to be serial killers than whites, 6 times more likely than Hispanics.

But since you idiots insist Hispanic’s are white, then the real rate difference is 3.12 times more likely blacks are to be serial killers.

Of course, we see where multiple forensic psychologists have already identified serial killers and pedophiles like digital having the same exact set of habits, personalities, etc, etc…

http://news.yahoo.com/huge-study-5-mental-disorders-share-genetic-links-233340007.html

Google yahoo –huge study 5 mental disorders share genetic links

The largest genetic study of mental illnesses to date finds five major disorders may not look much alike but they share some gene-based risks. The surprising discovery comes in the quest to unravel what causes psychiatric disorders and how to better diagnose and treat them.

The disorders — autism, attention deficit-hyperactivity disorder or ADHD, bipolar disorder, major depressive disorder and schizophrenia — are considered distinct problems. But findings published online Wednesday suggest they're related in some way.

"These disorders that we thought of as quite different may not have such sharp boundaries," said Dr. Jordan Smoller of Massachusetts General Hospital, one of the lead researchers for the international study appearing in The Lancet.

That has implications for learning how to diagnose mental illnesses with the same precision that physical illnesses are diagnosed, said Dr. Bruce Cuthbert of the National Institute on Mental Health, which funded the research.

Since antis are inherent schizophrenics, believing they hear voices and must obey, then it is they who by the doctors data are inherently genetic defectives. 

Wonder if they wont link more mental illnesses to these defective genes in the future, we don’t wonder, you exist and prove it every time you post!
