    The law is very clear. The person should be investigated by the secret service and appropriate actions taken within the legal system. Any threat to a public elected official is a threat to all of us.

    Assassination upon a President is a very serious offense. How serious? It is illegal to even joke about it or to say it.

    We have or hear and seen, when a person is very angry at another person, it is possible some of them might say "I am going to kill you", but you are just letting off steam, u don't really meant it or sometime a person might just to say it as a joke. But regardless of ur intention, if u say this about a President, it is a criminal offense, as serious as an actual attempt assassination, this is because, the President, as the head and leader of a nation, carry such a great importance, that u can't afford for him/her to be assassinated, so even joking about it, is legally consider as an actual threat and assassination attempt. Right now, Trump is not yet President, but those who talk about killing Trump, after he is sworn in, if they still say stuff like that, that is a criminal offense.

      Yes. It makes sense.

    They should be arrested because threatening to kill anyone is a crime.
    This is why the liberal instigator who tried to rush Trump at the last stop was taken down - because of the legitimate threats on Trump's life (and attempt by a British nut a few months ago taken down when he tried to take a cop's gun).
    You don't have the right to threaten to kill people, though liberals calling him (and every other major Republican leader) the new Hitler certainly created the climate of fear among liberals that those without balanced perspective would see it as permission to take action (murder).
