Photo: Provided Last week, a San Francisco Bay area man was convicted of threatening the life of gay state Sen. Scott Wiener (D). In January, 51-year-old Erik Triana of San Ramon, California sent a message to Wiener via the senator's constituent website that stated: 'Vax my kids without my permission and expect a visit from me and my rifle.' Triana signed the threat 'Amendment, Second' and listed his address as the Moscone Center in San Francisco. He was charged in April. A jury in Contra Costa County convicted the father of three of the threat on Wiener's life, two counts of possessing assault weapons, two counts of manufacturing or assembling unregistered firearms, and two counts of having a concealed firearm in his vehicle.
