    It's funny how I can only find this story from conservative blogs and news sources. I have not been able to find even a local news source that covered this story. Secondly, there is no evidence other than her word that she did not make the threat to come back with a gun. I'm not saying the story does not have merit or may not be true, but a news source other than a conservative blog would be helpful. It would be interesting to see how this turns out also. If she did make the threat, there are probably plenty of witnesses and it was probably also recorded. So if she didn't make the threat, she probably has a case for a civil suit against a lot of people and the police department.

    Keep us posted on how this turns out.

    •Eileen Hart objected to a state re-evaluation of her property value that would drastically increase her tax rates
    •She read the Constitution at a tax dispute forum and called one of the appraisers a “pencil-pusher”
    •One of tax officials called 911 saying Hart threatened to return with a gun, but she unequivocally denies the claim
    •Hart was charged with making “terroristic threats” and told that if she didn’t turn over her weapons, her bail would be prohibitively high and it was unclear how long she would have to remain in jail

    if being an Orthodox Jew was the reason she gave for not allowing the inspection then she should be willing to accept the consequences - or like everyone else let them do their job, then protest if she feels aggrieved by a properly obtained assessment - rather than protesting against one that was obtained because of her own actions.

    What a difference a liberal administration makes. Forty years ago they were burning the Flag and turning over cars and now the same people consider it a breach of the peace to read the Constitution at a public meeting. God help us.

    Apparently the OP failed to research his post, unless it was his intent to lie.

    While searching for a legitimate source for this story it was interesting to read all the different accounts, and how various rightwing blogs and websites spun, twisted, and, shall we say, ‘embellished’ the incident.

    Needless to say no legitimate sources were found.

    There was this more objective account from what seems to be a non-partisan site:

    No guns ‘confiscated,’ no due process violations, no arrests for reading the Constitution.

    Since The Blaze is utterly devoid of credibility, the OP will need to provide the same account from a neutral, legitimate news source to be believed.

    Just because the liberal main stream media refuses to cover news such as this means that it never happened in the liberal mind.

    Reading the Constitution then making threats is terroristic. Even Glenn Beck acknowledge that today.

    See, anyone who dissents against the government will be declared a "terrorist" without a conviction or any due process, you see where this shit is going?

    All organizers of the OCCUPY WALL STREET movement are already on the terrorist watch lists. I know, I get probed hard at airports for being an organizer.
