NEW YORK - New York City's police commissioner says angry letters mailed to President Obama, Mayor Michael Bloomberg and his gun control group contained threats about shooting people in the face.

Police Commissioner Raymond Kelly says he won't quote directly from the letters, because he doesn't want to do the author's bidding.

But he summarized the letters as complaining about gun control. Kelly says the letters say, in so many words, "anyone who comes for my guns will be shot in the face."

Two of the letters were opened last week in New York and Washington and were found to have traces of the deadly poison ricin. They were postmarked in Shreveport, La.

The third letter was intercepted by the White House mail facility and is being analyzed.
