Democratic State Representative Casey Weinstein says he found several memes he considers threatening printed out and placed in his mailbox last week. 

Weinstein, who has proposed gun legislation, says the memes were mostly anti-Democrat and some were threatening. Weinstein says he has received many angry messages since sponsoring a bill that would prohibit people from possessing a large capacity magazine for a firearm, in response to the Dayton mass shooting in August.
