Liberal hatemongers attack Gov. Nikki Haley over gun she received on Christmas

South Carolina Gov. Nikki Haley received a brand new Beretta PX4 Storm pistol for Christmas. While she was extremely happy with the gift, liberals predictably responded with hateful messages, including wishes she would kill herself with it, Twitchy reported Friday.

"Our family had a wonderful Christmas together! I must have been good Santa gave me a Beretta PX4 Storm," she tweeted.

"Please God, use it on yourself. Like before New Years," one person said in response.

"I hope you don't accidentally shoot someone in your family with it. Actually, I don't really care either way," another person said.

Yet another person falsely claimed Haley was somehow promoting murder by posting a picture of the pistol.

"I know where she should stick it," one person exclaimed.

Some refused to understand why Haley would want or need a gun.

"No clue as to why our governor needs a handgun," tweeted "Katie Thompson."

Setting aside for a moment the fact that the Constitution allows for the private ownership of guns, Haley was the target of a parent volunteer who was arrested earlier in December for threatening to kill the Republican governor.

According to the Huffington Post, Jennifer Phillips, a volunteer with the Santa's Workshop program at Liberty Elementary School, allegedly told a school employee: "I'm going to smuggle a gun in and kill this Governor."

Phillips was arrested, but Haley brushed off the threat.

"When you make decisions, you make some people happy and you make some people upset," she said. "There are some people who take it a little bit further, and that is part of my job is to deal with it."

It's not the first time Haley's life has been threatened.

As we reported in Nov. 2011, 26-year-old Nathan Shafer was arrested for a threatening comment he reportedly made on Facebook after hearing about the arrests of 19 Occupy Columbia members.

"I hope someone murders you before I do," Shafer's comment allegedly said. "How's that for freedom of speech?"

According to Mediaite, the $575 pistol was a present from her husband.
