State Senator Blames Threatening Messages for Town Hall Cancellation

State Sen. Ginny Burdick says she canceled a town hall meeting on gun control at Portland State University because her office has received thousands of hostile or threatening emails about anti-gun legislation. She told KATU she did not want to have the town hall crashed by disruptive and rude gun extremists. Burdick had initially said there was a scheduling conflict. She said the real reason for the cancellation was threats, after a video posted on YouTube showed she was at home at the time. She called police after seeing the video. The Portland Democrat says she will schedule other town hall meetings. Associated Press
