An activist was removed from a hearing at the Connecticut State Capitol after she was allegedly seen texting her eagerness to shoot a pro-gun lawmaker.

WTNH’s Mark Davis tweeted:

The text in the photo seems to indicate Sen. Rob Sampson (R-16) was the pro-gun lawmaker who allegedly drew the ire of the gun control activist. Various members of the NRA appear to have had the activist’s attention as well.

Alex Plitsas, GOP Vice-Chair and director of Connecticut GOP Vets, tweeted:
