Skip to comments.‘What more do we require?’ to stop violence, Rev. Jackson asks
Posted on 12/17/2012 9:45:57 AM PST by JustSayNoToNannies
Whether it be a mass casualty shooting at a school or other public space in the United States or the regularly occurring gun violence on the streets of Chicago, the people who are civilized must care enough to stop it now, the Rev. Jesse Jackson said on Saturday.
While speaking to the audience at the Rainbow-PUSH headquarters on the South Side, Jackson reflected on Fridays shooting in Connecticut, as well as the ongoing violence on the streets of Chicago.
Noting that, Its easier (in the United States) to buy a gun than a cup of coffee, Jackson said, None of us are safe until all of us are safe. These military assault weapons have no place in society.
You dont hunt with semi-automatic weapons, Jackson said. These are designed to kill people.
Jackson wondered aloud how many more senseless acts of gun violence do we require? before something is done to stop such events from occurring again.We are the most violent nation on earth, he said. We make the most guns and we shoot them, we make the most bullets and we fire them.
Tying together the deaths of the children in Connecticut and all the young people who have died from gun violence in Chicago, Jackson said, the people who are civilized must care enough to stop it now.
He also mentioned the bill that passed the Michigan legislature on Thursday that would allow those with concealed carry permits to bring guns into schools, churches, and daycare centers. Were going to fight that, Jackson said.
Well, Reverend Racist, You can start by telling your constituents that it’s wrong to kill white people, for one.
JJ is a fool.
Of course the usual left-wing nuts are trotted out, as if on que. No balance, just the usual suspect spouting the same anti-American slogans.
I will NOT have my Constitutional rights abridged by the corrupt, partisan MSM, Obama, or anyone else.
No discussion. No “compromise”. No negotiations.
What a jerk.
If he thinks we’re “the most violent nation on Earth”, he hasn’t considered the Islamic nations.
Here, have a look for yourselves.
Religion of Peace proponents racked up 907 dead bodies and
1,866 injuries in 218 attacks during “Islamophobia Awareness Month”.
Gee,,I see Rev Jackson has cured all the violence in Chicago so he feels he can speak on this issue. Oh wait,,he hasn’t.
“You dont hunt with semi-automatic weapons, Jackson said. These are designed to kill people.”
At least he got it right. They are “semi-automatic” weapons.
Re: What more do we require? to stop violence, Rev. Jackson asks
For a start, we can disarm Obama supporters. Aren’t they the ones filling up prisons for violent gun crimes?
The process of taking guns from previously law abiding citizens, will result in a 100 fold increase in violence. Just look at Chicago. So violence is not your main concern. Stop lying.
Well, Jesse, for one thing you Democrats can quit creating your dependent society where minorities and other have no hope other than the government check. Yet, they desire more and the only way to get it is to take it and that leads to violence: gangs, robberies, etc.
That's funny - frightening, but funny.
the people who are civilized must care enough to stop it now, the Rev. Jesse Jackson said on Saturday.
Unfortunately for the “Rev.” Jackson it is not the
civilized that murder and create mayhem.
Semi-auto weapons ARE used for hunting!!
Its easier (in the United States) to buy a gun than a cup of coffee, Jackson said....
Apparently the Rev. hasn’t bought a gun lately. Probably has someone to make him coffee, too.
No Jackasson, our semiautomatic rifles are designed to resist tyranny.
Says the hate-sermonizing "Reverend".
Locking up black males from age 15 until about 50 would do a number on violent crime in America, at least according to the statistics. Would you go for that assault on freedom as well, Jesse?
The primary targets for ‘gun control’ are the primary producers of wealth in this nation—the white middle class.
The hood will always have guns—look at Chicago—and the elites will have their armed security details.
we need to be able to defend ourselves.
Answer: Placing Jesse Jackson, Al Sharpton in Jail. Forbid them from publishing their opinions either orally or in writing. Eliminate the leftist control of media.
The only thing that can stop this sort of thing, is for those people that do these things to stop being the way they are....in other words, some people are just messed up and when God knows it’s your time and place, it is.
I had a couple free cups of coffee this morning.
I wish someone would give me a couple of free ARs/
Karin Stanford, 39, the mother of the Rev. Jesse Jackson’s out-of-wedlock daughter, has told Chicago’s two major newspapers that she has never asked for nor received any money to keep quiet about her affair with Jackson. Stanford said Jackson’s lawyers asked her to sign confidentiality agreements, but no money was attached to the requests, according to the Windy City’s Tribune and Sun-Times. She also said she didn’t sign them. “I really need to clear up some misinformation about me,” said Stanford, an author and former professor. “I’m not a blackmailer. I’ve never received any payoff money.” Jackson’s spokesman confirmed that no money was offered. Stanford has sued Jackson, 59, seeking to formalize a child support agreement. Jackson has been sending $3,000 a month to support his daughter, who turns 2 years old this month. “Please don’t call me a mistress,” Stanford, who is said to have a $100,000 annual salary from one of Jackson’s organizations, told the Trib. “That implies I’m a kept woman. I am not that.”
Hey, Jesse! Bastard Babies are the problem. What are you doing about it? You can’t keep it in your pants!
Nobody has ever asked me if a want the “grande” rifle when shopping for rifles.
I don’t know where he got that title. It sure has nothing to do with God and morality, and like you said, he can’t open his mouth without “lying”.
Race-baiter and white-hater would be a better title and he can share it with the “Reverend” sharpton.
""""We are the most violent nation on earth, he said""""....
Jackson is the spokesman for Violence in America, but he ignores every Islamic country and Africa?
Jackson...SHUT UP, who axked you?
Well, we could give race bating a rest, for starters.
Black Americans are 12.6% of the U.S. population but account for 50% of all homicides. Of those homicides more than 90% are perpetrated by other blacks.
Many of these homicides occur in cities like Chicago and New York which have the strictest gun laws in the nation.
I’m so SICK of hearing the lie from liberals it’s easier to buy a gun than (X) A Cup a Coffee or Rent a car. Maybe it IS for Criminals! I’m sure the Gang members/Drug dealers have no trouble going to the corner and buying an automatic weapon on the spot but NOT for citizens who obey the law.
He never said a damn word about the shootings that went on in Chicago this year. Not a damn word. And little girls got shot, too. Racist POS.
I do. It's a semi-automatic shotgun. Remington makes tons of them, as do Mossberg, Browning, etc. Come to think of it, there are lots and lots of semi-automatic weapons that hunters use. You know, now that I think about it, MOST hunting weapons on the market today are semi-automatic.
Jesse, you should go become a test subject for kevlar vests Vs. hunting ammunition. Tell us if they work against .306 or 30-60 rounds.
You should lobby for more restrictive use of firearms there in Chicago or in the State of Illinois. I haven't heard of anyone being killed with a slingshot, but I suppose that's inevitable so don't forget to ban those too.
.We are the most violent nation on earth,
Wow. And to think I would have guessed Syria, North Korea or Iran. How silly of me. The answer was just in my back yard....
A little less race-baiting and rabble-rousing would help, JJ. You might also tell your Marxist union buddies to tone it down a bit. Lastly, concentrate on the commandment that forbids us to envy the wealth and possessions of our fellow man.
That's not even true. "Automatic" weapon (aka - AK47, Uzi, Mac10, Machine guns, etc.) are not EASY to get anywhere for the thug trying to buy on sly. First, they are expensive machines (unless stolen). Only organized criminals go through the trouble and expense of purchasing automatic weapons. They usually are not buying them one at a time and certainly not from the kid down the street who stole one out of the car of the local SWAT officer or gun dealer. Loose lips and all that.
Once again the media is in a frenzy about guns, ignoring the responsibility of individuals with mental problems or demonstrated abnormal behavior. I believe society's refusal to adequately deal with abnormal behavior started in the late 60’s or early 70’s and was brought about by actions of the ACLU, which essentially led to rulings that an individual’s right to be crazy (in public) trumps the collective right of society to be protected from this individual. Take away guns and these individuals, armed with surprise and whatever weapon is handy (i.e., knife, baseball bat, hammer, etc.), will continue to wreck havoc among us. The first step in prevention and dealing with mental illness is to recognize that it exists and that help is required.
No discussion. No compromise. No negotiations.
lol. Do you know who the House Majority Leader is....we are going to get at the LEAST Clinton era gun control laws. I think we are screwed! I just want to know how Boehner is going to fight the contant echo of “but it was 6 year olds” that will be thrown at him constantly.
Ask Tamara Holder...!!
He got what right? That semi-automatic weapons were used in this latest tragedy (implied)? Indeed Glock pistols are semi-automatic and 9mm is not used for hunting.
But "semi-automatic" weapons are used very frequently when hunting. Many shotguns and hunting rifles are semi-automatic. Even .22 weapons come in semi-automatic and I would not say those are designed to kill people. Rats, birds and squirls maybe, but not people. A .22 placed precisely can be lethal no doubt, but so can an air rifle.
***Its easier (in the United States) to buy a gun than a cup of coffee, Jackson said,***
You would prefer the pre 1968 laws when Blacks were FORBIDDEN to own firearms?
Get back to us when you clear up Chicago and the other big city crime messes.
Either the libs don't know what they're talking about, or they're making stuff up and hoping that people have become so stupid that they'll never understand that they're just making stuff up.
After November 6th, I believe we've crossed the Rubicon and have changed into an Idiocracy. I think it's over now. It may take a few more years before the barbarians loot and pillage what's left, but it's over. Go Galt!
Most black politicians favor gun control, not just because they are Democrats, but because it is something that is needed in their communities. Just look at Chicago, they really do have a epidemic of gang violence, and lots of gang involved shootings.
The majority is asked to sacrifice our rights, once again, to make life better for the dysfunctional minority. It’s endless, the concessions, changes, give-backs, surrenders and humiliation that whites are supposed to endure to make black America function better.
I’ve heard that some semi-auto .22s can hold up to 17 hollow points.
No, what he got right was he didn’t call them automatic weapons like those in the media do and what Democrats consider to be “assault rifles.”
Politically incorrect thought exercise: Which would have more impact on reducing crime in America? Removing all guns from society with a tap of the magic wand, or removing all blacks from society with a tap of the magic wand?
since when was there a 7 day waiting period for a cup of coffee?
Heck, from where I sit I can walk 3 steps and get a free cup of coffee.
Where is my free gun?
Jessie is an idiot.
I think you can .22 in depleted uranium too. This helps with penetration in case you have to shoot through cardboard. Lol.
A hollow point .22 might get stuck in the victims clothing.
The Rev can set an example and fire his armed security detail. Oh, and he better register the ‘gun’ between his legs. That’s already ruined a lot of lives.
Consider how close to Whorled Peas we could get if the World had no Islamics.
I shouldn't poke fun. All weapons can be dangerous if used improperly and without proper training, just like vehicles, lawnmowers, weedwackers, hammers and stoves.
My arrogant and condescending comments were to make the point that not all semi-automatic weapons are designed to kill people, as Jesse jASSon suggests.
