Kentucky Republican Rand Paul was attacked and seriously injured last year in an incident involving a neighbor.

After wife, Kelley, penned an open letter to Sen. Cory Booker, D-N.J., to rescind his previous calls to political activism, Paul sounded the alarm in a radio interview this week.

“I fear that there’s going to be an assassination,” he said. “I really worry that somebody is going to be killed, and that those who are ratcheting up the conversation … they have to realize they bear some responsibility if this elevates to violence.”
