Over the past week, we haven't been afraid to report about the rising numbers of men and women across the country who say they're joining the militia.
It's no longer a veiled threat – it's a reality. The numbers have exploded thanks to what's happening in Virginia. More on that in a moment.
But first – this message came in Wednesday:
"Your reporting about the growing numbers in the militia create a clear and present threat to America. As part of Congress, I'm giving you fair warning that this is the equivalent of shouting 'fire' in a movie theater. If your reporting incites violence, or can even be tied to it, we will make sure to charge your editors with felonies," wrote the person.
It's worth pointing out the message came in anonymously – so we're pretty confident it wasn't exactly a sitting congressman.
