When I saw the video with him and Penn yesterday, it seemed like he was trying to downplay it a bit by saying the whole thing "borders" on tyrannical.
Still, even if him and Joe Scarborough are merely attempting to save face (likely), I'd bet that at least a few more of their loyal viewers now understand why the second amendment isn't so 'crazy'.
Like I've been asking the dems the past two weeks, "what if the shoe were on the other foot? What if it were Bush doing this? What if Obama had a little R in front of his name instead of a D?"
To the repubs, just bring up how the "Patriot Act" is even worse than what the IRS did/does. Not as effective, but it has made a few people stop and think for a second.
