Conservative talk radio host Dana Loesch issues a dare late Friday to the Democratic congresswoman who labeled her a “domestic security threat.”
“Come and arrest me,” Loesch said defiantly during an appearance Friday on Fox News “Tucker Carlson Tonight.”
Her comment was directed at Rep. Kathleen Rice, D-N.Y., who took to social media to attack the NRA and Loesch, who promotes the pro-Second Amendment group.
“I’m just going to say it,” the lawmaker tweeted. “The NRA and Dana Loesch are quickly becoming domestic security threats under President Trump. We can’t ignore that.”

The ominous remark “we can’t ignore that” takes on added emphasis with Rice sitting on the Homeland Security Committee.
Loesch, the mother of two, rejected the shameful targeting of a private citizen by a member of Congress.
“I am not a domestic threat!” she told fill-in host Mark Steyn. “I mean, for crying out loud, I’m a mom, Mark! I’m a mom. I go to Walmart, and I take my kids to Chick-fil-A, and I and millions of other men and women across the country, we belong to a group of like-minded individuals that support and advocate for the Second Amendment.”
Loesch then challenged the Democrat that not only threatened her right to free speech but endangered her and her family.
“I only have one question for Congresswoman Rice: is she coming to arrest me?” she asked. “I’m in Dallas. If you find me that threatening Congresswoman, come and arrest me.”
Loesch concluded her appearance with a call for Rice to resign.
