Former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin’s willingness to speak her mind has triggered death threats toward her and her family from some unbalanced individuals. And understandably enough, that has her parents worried, Politico reports
The parents, Chuck and Sally Heath, told the BBC that the Palin family has received many death threats since the former vice presidential candidate gained national prominence. “As a mother I do have concerns about her safety and that of the kids,” Palin’s mother said. “She knows how I feel, that it's risky.”
One man recently sent the family a photocopied receipt of a gun he’d purchased, Palin’s father said. The man was later arrested by the FBI, but Chuck Heath says the family is concerned nonetheless. “We sleep with the guns,” he said.
