On Sunday, liberal activist Jesse Jackson repeated his claim that semi-automatic weapons can shoot down airplanes and said they could also "blow up railroads."
Semi-automatic weapons are not just about gun control, theyre about national security, he said while appearing on Fox News.
You know that these weapons can shoot down airplanes, they can blow up railroads. This is really a whole national security issue, he added.
Jackson said he was okay with having a gun for the house, or a gun for hunting.
But these semi-automatic, military-style assault weapons -- they shot at the White House two years ago, so none of us are safe, he added.
Last month, Jackson made a similar claim.

what a dork

If only we hadn’t all lost them in those boating mishaps...
Here’s the man who thinks he is the King of all Black people. Doesn’t have the brain cells the Good Lord gave a turnip.

Can’t JJJr. just walk arm in arm with Rahm and Zer0 on the South Side to sweep up all the illegal arms?
Yeah, that was a shame, wasn’t it?
There use to be a time when people that stupid would keep their mouth shut rather than proving how ignorant they were.
Surface of the moon? Amateur. That hole in the ozone? All me.
Jupiter’s Red Spot. And that wasn’t even with my .88 magnum.
yup those assault weapons are powerful, get enough piled on Guam for our Marines and it might tip over...
Saturn’s rings. .44 Magnum.

“There use to be a time when people that stupid would keep their mouth shut rather than proving how ignorant they were.”
For Jesse and his ilk, ignorance is power. Think about it, what keeps him and the rest of the race pimps in green; it ain’t education.
jesse jackson has a serious problem. It’s called ‘being jesse jackson’.

2. Assault rifles can cause excessive hair growth in certain breeds of dogs.
