New York Rep. Carolyn Maloney says she’s been getting death threats over the proposed gun-control legislation.

She says she was so disturbed by the threat that she skipped out on a public appearance Tuesday night.

Reports say Maloney got three calls about an hour apart warning her not to move forward with her support of the legislation.

She tells the Daily News she was scared, especially after what happened to former Congresswoman Gabby Giffords, who was shot during an event in Arizona two years ago.
