Chris Matthews asks Congressmen Jim Cooper and Phil Gingrey about the people bringing the guns to the town hall meetings and at least Cooper says he would discourage people from bringing them to the town hall meetings. Gingrey on the other hand defended it and says he feels perfectly safe at his town hall meetings and has no fear of anyone there with a gun. Well tough guy, if you were getting called Hitler and screamed at instead of applauded, maybe you'd feel a little differently about that.

Can you help us out?
