(Newser) – A white supremacist blogger and Internet radio host has been charged with threatening three federal judges who ruled in favor of Chicago's handgun ban, the Chicago Sun-Times reports. “Let me be the first to say this plainly: These judges deserve to be killed,” Hal Turner wrote, providing the judges' names, addresses, and phone numbers. “Their blood will replenish the tree of liberty." Turner also faces charges of threatening lawmakers in Connecticut.
