A man believed to be a supporter of Colorado state Sen. Evie Hudak (D), a strong advocate for gun control, was caught on video threatening to "kill" a group of recall activists who were gathering signatures to recall the Democratic lawmaker.
The recall activists uploaded the short video of the incident on YouTube on Thursday. The exchange reportedly took place outside the public library in Arvada, Colo. As Capitol City Project's Stephen Gutowski points out, the YouTube account "appears to be connected to an organization named Recall Hudak Too."
"I'm gonna go home and get a gun and come back and kill you mother f***ers," the man, riding a bike, can be heard telling the recall activists. "Would you like that?"
"Have a blessed day, sir," one of the activists replies.
It is unclear what occurred leading up to the man's death threat as the video is only 9 seconds long. It is certainly possible that the man was provoked, but further context wasn't immediately available.

After successfully recalling two anti-gun state senators earlier this year, recall activists are hoping that they can use the momentum to get rid of Hudak as well. State Senate President John Morse and Sen. Angela Giron were both removed from office by voters over their support for gun control.
