    Chris Matthews to town hall protestor: why did you bring a "goddamn gun" to a Presidential event? (w/video)

    On Tuesday's Hardball with Chris Matthews, Matthews' guest was William Kostric, the man who brought a gun earlier in the day to protest President Obama's health care town hall meeting in Portsmouth, New Hampshire.
    Kostric was wearing a (legal) handgun strapped to his leg and holding a sign referencing this Jefferson quote: "The tree of liberty must be refreshed from time to time, with the blood of patriots and tyrants."
    The segment grew more and more heated as Matthews repeatedly asked Kostric why he came to the meeting wearing a gun. "Well, why did you bring a gun to a Presidential event today?"
    "That's not even a relevant question," Kostric said, shrugging. "The question is, why don't people bear arms these days."
    "Okay, you bought a sign that said 'The tree of liberty must be watered with the blood of tyrants' and you're carrying a god damn gun at a Presidential event. I think those things make people wonder what you're about."
    Kostric for his part, was unrepentant, and maintained that he was there in a totally non-violent capacity. "No one from New Hampshire was alarmed. Maybe some of the people they bussed in from Massachusets were alarmed. But we're not really concerned about them."

    Check out the video here, it's a can't miss:

    Haha - Mathews thought he was talking to a dumb redneck and tried to talk him into a corner, but wasn't quite able to do it.

    lol THIS IS FUNNY!!! You gotta watch the video, the guys an idiot!
    Just because your sign off after you're shift is done, doesn't mean that it's over and put blinders on. You're a cop 24/7 wether you like it or not. If thats something you can't handle, you should find a new line of work!

    Clarify for me, which guy is the idiot?

    You can be the weapon, and the gun in your hand is a tool - or the gun is a weapon and you are the tool.

    Yup! Er, wait, you weren't asking me.

    Guessing that was a Free State Project porcupine shirt he was wearing. If you agree with him on this point, as I do, probably best to leave it at that. FSP people tend to have a real bad habit of blaming the cop on the street for enforcing the laws they don't agree with. Lot of laws I don't agree with, but I don't go with their way of thinking as to who should be petitioned for redress of grievances, to put it politely.

    I wish the guy all the luck in the world. I don't agree with open carry legal or otherwise, but I do appreciate someone:

    A. Knowing their rights.
    B. Exercising their rights.
