I Don't Know Who Is More Irresponsible

Chris Matthews or the freak who brought the handgun to the president's town hall event yesterday.

This guy brandishes a loaded handgun in the vicinity of our president while carrying a sign about "the blood of tyrants" -- and how exactly did he spend his evening? Discussing tax policy and political science on Hardball.
