We thought it went without saying that threatening people’s lives is wrong, but that still seems to be lost on some people.

Sen. Rand Paul has had what can most charitably be described as a difficult year. And it’s apparently not over yet:

Unreal.

More from the Courier Journal:

The man has been arrested. He allegedly called in the threats to Paul’s Bowling Green office.

Paul mentioned the attack publicly at an event in Litchfield, Kentucky, on Monday.

“Capitol Police have issued an arrest warrant for a man who threatened to kill me and chop up my family with an axe,” Paul said. “It’s just horrendous that we have to deal with things like this.”

Capitol Police declined to comment because the investigation is ongoing.

Horrible.

It needs to stop now.

Please stay safe.
