Mr. Wilson, when contacted by an undercover FBI agent, said that Murray and Sen. Maria Cantwell (D), also of Washington, “need to be strung up” and that he carries a handgun and would not blink if given the chance to shoot her. "It's not a threat, it's a guarantee," he said in one message.
Wilson, who was sentenced to a year in prison for his threats, added that he thought Murray would have a target on her back for life for her stance on the health-care bill.
“There are a lot more of us. There are a lot of crazy people out there, and your security may stay with you for a long time, but somebody will get through,” he said.
