During today’s weekly press call, Congressman Tom Reed was asked if he was going to start carrying a gun, as a result of last week’s shooting of Congressman Steve Scalise in Virgina. Reed would not answer that question, but did answer a question from the Buffalo News about whether he gets death threats. Reed admitted that yes, he does receive death threats, on a regular basis.
