Travolta's character in Swordfish just claimed that. Google search has turned up some guys geocities page saying it's not true, and a nutjob blog or 2 with people using that line like it is fact. Nothing on Snopes that I can find and most google results using Jefferson, shot, or treason involve his VP Aaron Burr shooting Hamilton

That wasn't for treason though, that was for his "piece of the PIE."

Ummmm no.

But there was a huge split (pretty much Fed and Anti-fed lines again) over the war of 1812. The northeastern states actually had a convention to consider seceding...

The only person that I know of that was tried for treason during Jefferson's term was Aaron Burr, who was acquitted.

I've never heard of such a thing, and I'm sure if it was true it would be mentioned here daily.

However, Andrew Jackson did shoot someone at the White House.
