The legend of Daley's "Gun Up Your Butt" joke continues to grow.
But the latest installment -- in which a California man allegedly made a death threat toward the mayor -- is even less funny than the original.
The suspect's mother, Patricia Fox, told WGN-TV her son told her he threatened to shoot and kill Daley because of the mayor's controversial remark about gun control.
Last week, Daley responded to a reporter's question about whether Chicago's handgun ban is working since shootings continue to plague the city. The mayor picked up a rifle with a bayonet from a table.
"It's been very effective. If I put this up your butt, you'll find out how effective it is," Daley said laughing.
The mayor later apologized.
