(HOUSTON CHRONICLE) — A Harris County gun-shop owner received a letter Saturday threatening him, his family and his employees.
“Live by the gun. Die by the gun. You will not live to see Easter,” reads the typed letter that was mailed Thursday in Houston and arrived Saturday at Jim Pruett’s Guns & Ammo.
Jim Pruett was photographed and quoted in the Houston Chronicle last week saying that restricting sales of military-style arms wouldn’t prevent tragedies like the Connecticut massacre. “All it’s going to do is make it difficult for law-abiding citizens to get the best protection they can for their home against, especially in Texas, gangs motivated by the drug cartel,” Pruett said in the Wednesday article.
