An Alabama state lawmaker sent a bizarre ranting, racist email to a white constituent who asked him not to support any new legislation that would restrict gun ownership and – oh, yes – copied all members of the state House in the email thread.

Jefferson County resident Eddie Maxwell sent the first email to all members of the Alabama House simply telling lawmakers he believed “introducing additional gun control bills or by allowing those already enacted to remain in the body of our laws” violated the state constitution. reported Democrat State Rep. Joe Mitchell apparently hit the “reply all” button when he sent the following crazy, jaw-dropping response from his email account:

Hey man. Your folk never used all this sheit to protect my folk from your slave-holding, murdering, adulterous, baby-raping, incestuous, snaggle-toothed, backward-a**ed, inbreed, imported criminal-minded kin folk. You can keep sending me stuff like you have however because it helps me explain to my constituents why they should protect that 2nd amendment thing AFTER we finish stocking up on spare parts, munitions and the like.

Bring it. As one of my friends in the Alabama Senate suggested – “BRING IT!!!!”

Maxwell replied back telling Mitchell, “That’s not the type of reply I expect to receive from a state legislator. I’m not a racist and I find your reply to be especially offensive considering the position you hold.”

According to, Maxwell received responses from two other members of the state House. Democrat Rep. Patricia Todd also replied all when she emailed Maxwell:

I just received this chain of emails and wanted to let you know that I am with you on the gun issue and am saddened by the tone of my colleagues email. All of us have suffered from the racism of the past and I thank you for your civic and thoughtful response.

Maxwell told the Alabama newspaper he was “surprised at the racial tones” in Mitchell’s email. “”It just makes me more determined that we the people need to stay involved,” Maxwell said in a telephone interview today. “It’s up to us as citizens to watch our government,” the article said.

Maxwell also said he hopes Mitchell will be disciplined for his “comments.”
