It sounds to me like Emily Miller is a fucking wuss… Why does she want a gun again?? Oh, yes for the political statement.. Why the Hell would she be shaking while calling the cops its only 3 fucking numbers and you have a PISTOL!!!

No she didn’t. She got the call during the “cooling off period” before she could take possession of her pistol.
Plus what SPQR said. Whackjobs scare the heck out of me, and I get the shakes, too, right up until I have to do something RTF NOW! Then I’m fine until it’s over. It’s a normal human reaction to an impending (or potential) fight or flight situation. Get over yourself.
Emily Miller is doing great work on combating D.C.’s anti-constitutional gun laws. I keep waiting for her to decide it’s not worth it to live in a third-world shithole and move across the river to Virginia.
Control may be the ultimate goal, but guns are their vehicle, so anti-gun is the appropriate label. Just having the means to solve a problem, however, does not make it less of a problem, especially if you’ve been programmed for years that you’re at the mercy of the bad guy and at the convenience of the good guy. When seconds count, and all that…
So responding to a particularly illustrative death threat in a wholly appropriate and reasonable fashion, especially for someone who is legally incapable of lawfully carrying a firearm on her daily business, is indicative of being a “wuss”.
Not to be a jerk to Emily, since I’m a big fan of what she’s done with this series for those of us who live in DC, but there are other reasons why someone might be targeting her.
Namely, she is THE person who threw back the curtain on the dirty deeds of Jack Abramoff, Tom Delay, and the GOP majority. She used to work for Delay (and Colin Powell) and went public after being jilted by Michael Scanlon. Lots of powerful people went to jail, lots of embarrassment ensued, etc.
