Gun Owners of America hints at armed revolt

Executive Director Larry Pratt tells Chris Matthews that government's "gone overboard," and gun owners should act

Things got real ugly real quick during Chris Matthews' interview with Larry Pratt on MSNBC's "Hardball" this evening.

The reptilian executive director of Gun Owners of America, last seen telling gun control advocates "they have the blood of little children on their hands," argued that we are "less free without automatic rifles," and need to stay prepared.

Matthews, who loves nothing more than hurling himself through cracked-open doors like this, was all too happy to oblige with a "prepared for what?"

Pratt: "To take on our government. [And this] government has gone overboard." He continued that it's time to take action "when elections are stolen."

Does this mean that the Gun Owners of America's 300,000 members are preparing to revolt?
