"A former Internet radio talk show host and blogger was sentenced to 33 months in federal prison on Tuesday for inviting readers of his blog to assassinate three federal judges. Hal Turner of North Bergen, N.J., was convicted in a federal court in Brooklyn of threatening to assault and murder three judges of the Chicago-based Seventh US Circuit Court of Appeals as retaliation for upholding a ban on guns in Chicago, a ruling with which he disagreed."
