Conservatives Packing Heat at Town Hall Meetings

Two separate incidents of armed Tea Baggers infiltrating town hall meetings have occurred this week. Should we be worried for our lives?

The town hall meeting / tea bagger story line is starting to get a little too twisted for my taste. This week, in two separate incidents, one in Tennessee and one in Arizona, armed civilians were reported to town hall meetings to speak their mind.

I understand the second amendment exists, but conspiracy to commit violence is also a crime, and the case for conspiracy against some people can and should be made, as these threatening tweets reported by Talking Points Memo reveal.

Still, if you're for health care reform, don't get scared. Most meetings have been well-staffed by local police. Cenk Uygur of the Young Turks adds his $.02 in the accompanying video.
