Gosh, the Nevada Police Union isn't very happy with Michele Fiore, and who can blame them? After all, she basically called for every wingnut in Nevada to aim their guns at them, which is a monumentally stupid thing for an aspiring U.S. Congresswoman to do.

Now they've fired back an open letter at her.

“These comments were utterly irresponsible, an embarrassment to your District and our State, and they continue to demonstrate why you are unqualified to hold the position of United States Congresswoman," the letter from the Nevada Association of Public Safety Officers said.

NAPSO Executive Director Rick McCann said he was "appalled, and asked. “Michele, what are you thinking to even suggest in any way, shape or form, to even imply that it would be a valid course of conduct for a citizen to point a weapon at a law enforcement officer?”

Ouch. But Fiore is unfazed.

“They can take the paper they printed it on, and he can use it in his restroom,” Fiore commented when she was asked about the letter.

We can only hope that Machine Gun Michele fades back to obscurity after the June 14th primary. Please. For the sake of our republic.
