Death of the Patriot Act, State Militias and the Second Amendment
Thom asks Ryan Radia from the Competitive Enterprise Institute why conservatives suddenly seem to be turning against the Patriot Act. Then, Rep. Bobby Scott (D-VA) and Rep. Donna Edwards (D-MD) join Thom in the studio to talk about the economy and a new bill to help people who are about to lose their unemployment benefits after 99 weeks. Later, Thom debates Curtis Sliwa about the effectiveness of armed state militias in curbing violence across the United States and offers his take on the true meaning of the Second Amendment. And finally, Thom gives his version of the CPAC 2011 keynote address and pleads with the GOP to take back their party in the Daily Take.
