According to court documents, Wallace Grove Godwin, 69, visited Taylor's office on Thursday and threatened to shoot him and two staffers at a Saturday event. The dispute arose, according to the District Attorney's office, over a discussion about marijuana policy.
Scott is having an event this Saturday. I am going to get my shotgun and do something about this. I will just handle this myself," Godwin allegedly said to a Taylor staffer. He then pointed to two staffers in the room and said, You two are next," authorities said.
Gowdin is expected to appear in a federal courthouse in Norfolk, Va. on Friday afternoon. The maximum penalty for threatening a member of Congress is 10 years in prison.

I could imagine doing this to a Congressman 60 years ago.
First he’d get his brains beat in by the Congressman then the police would kick his ass.
HOP: the herb of peace.
Another performance by a 68er on his way out.
This does not seem like very mellow behavior at all from a 1960s pothead.
Obviously we are forgetting the meme. Democrats can do or say anything they want and their friendly Leftist judges will excuse their behavior because well, I understand why he/she feels/acts this way. They did a great job packing the courts so none of the Dems are afraid to behave the way Obama instructed them to behave. If they bring a knife to a fight, we bring a gun.
Why would a pothead sue the Fed gov for not enforcing marijuana laws?
Some actual info on him here: https://www.thecannabist.co/2018/03/23/virginia-marijuana-policy-scott-taylor-threats/102309/
Still-deranged 80s drug war brainwash victims are an ugly sight.
He says he’s a “natural born Conservative” and he wants to know why Federal laws against marijuana aren’t being enforced.
Since the Representative was Republican, the case will be dismissed as “homicidal art”.
