<p>During his MSNBC show on Thursday night, Chris Matthews discussed a soundbite of Iowa Republican Senate candidate Joni Ernst stating her stance on the Second Amendment from two years ago and interpreted it as &ldquo;pretty radical&rdquo; to the point that &ldquo;[s]he has talked about killing politicians she doesn&#39;t agree with.&rdquo;</p>

<p>Here is what Ernst actually said (which was uncovered in a Huffington Post story from Wednesday):<strong> &ldquo;I have a beautiful little Smith &amp; Wesson, nine millimeter, and it goes with me virtually everywhere, but I do believe in the right to carry, and I believe in the right to defend myself and my family, whether it&#39;s from an intruder, or whether it&#39;s from a government should they decide that my rights are no longer important.&rdquo;</strong></p>
