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.
"The young man who did the killing in Aurora, Colorado, with the arsenal he had he was right near the airport, right near the runways [in] Denver. He could shoot down airplanes, so this is a matter of homeland security as well," he said.
That claim, The Blaze said, was called "laughable" by a former CIA officer.
"I just read the Jesse Jackson quote and quite frankly its laughable," said Jason Hanson, author of "The Covert Guide to Concealed Carry...

Is he heading for what his son just suffered . . . ?
what a dork
I can shoot down an airplane or blow up a train with a semi-auto? Why has no one told me this before now? I’m always the last to find out this stuff.
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.
I shoot down satellites with mine. You ever see a photograph of the surface of the moon? Yup, that was me.
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.
Jessie, is this what your latest mistress is telling you? I have one piece of advice: Don’t listen to her.
“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’.
Jesse was obviously challenging us all to a game of “whopper”, where each player must tell a plausible lie bigger than the one before.
Since there was no limitation given to the number of entries, I will submit two:
1. Assault rifles can cause static in radio reception at high altitudes.
2. Assault rifles can cause excessive hair growth in certain breeds of dogs.
Hey! Guess what jesse! Airplanes can take down buildings, big ones too! Semi-automatic weapons would have done less damage and less people would have died. Go, get busy and grow a brain.
You cheated. You used a bayonet lug. Turns an ordinary gun into a monster.

Is he heading for what his son just suffered . . . ?
He must be talking about you can put rounds through the boile of a locomotive ans how they brew up.....
Oh trains today are diesel electric? Uh never mind, whatevuh!!!
he’s such a lying sack of shiite. When has an airplane or a railroad ever been blown up by an American with an AR15? NEVER!
See him in action here:
Perhaps he can find another patient that can explain the difference between Conrail and Lionel.
Well, I guess if you shot enough bullets into a boxcar filled with dynamite...
Thanks for that link!
Awesome... I watched that show when I was a kid. Even watched ‘Branded’ the short time it was on.
“I can shoot down an airplane or blow up a train with a semi-auto?”
In a liberal’s mind, even how small it is, anything is magical. Heck, guns kill people by jumping around by themselves..
The moon? Not bad, not bad at all. However, I must confess that you are not up to standards. The crater Copernicus, at the South Pole of the moon was mine but unfortunately it was a ricochet and when it hit the earth they now call it the Grand Canyon.
That big black hole in the center of the Milky Way galaxy,,,mmmm-hmmmm..........
A $10 Laser Pointer can blind the Pilots flying an Airbus A380 with 400 plus Passengers on Board.
You can stick a rag in the Gas Tank Filler of a Car parked in front of a Nursery School and light it with a Match, then it will go boom.
Criminals don’t stop being Criminals because you change the Law, they just find another tool to do the damage.
What’s your point Jesse, outlawing Human Ingenuity? There is Good and Evil in the world, outlaw Evil, that will work.
This guy should expose the damage a unicorn can do...
Jesse is just giving his Obama buds a new idea.
Just shoot down an Airliner and King Obama will have the people on his side so he can go after the Evil Gun Owners, all those Old White Tea Party types.
That crater on the left, I did that with .22
tall tail ping
After the story broke Jackson claims he forgot to explain that he was talking about a 76mm rifle those are semi automatic (sarc).
Must have been a 22 magnum.
- Assault rifles can cause planes to disappear in the Bermuda Triangle.
- Assault rifles can cause global warming, er, I mean climate change.
- Assault rifles can cause separation of Oreo cookies
And I heard that assault rifles caused the downfall of the Roman Empire, but I think that’s just a conspiracy theory.
That’s not cheating. It’s adapting. :)
Remember Pluto? It was considered a planet until I chipped away at it with my Mosin-Nagant. :)
Remember the Big Bang? 'fraid that was me and my trusty AR-7...
Intelligent Design indeed.
When the Earth’s poles shifted? Again, all me.
This must be what Je$$e Jack$$on is talking about...
