Chris Matthews takes on gun toting Obama protester

Chris Matthews on MSNBC's Hardball took on a Obama protester who showed up with a gun attached to his leg. He was carrying a sign that paraphrased Thomas Jefferson's famous quote about the tree of liberty needing to be refreshed by the blood of patriots and tyrants. The sign conveniently leaves out the part of the blood of tyrants and patriots. While I can understand this protester's views on taxes and personal property, this quote is all wrong. It incites violence. Why? Because unless he thinks Obama is a patriot, he could be inciting violence towards the President. Anyway, I've posted the interview.
