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.

Unfortunately for the “Rev.” Jackson it is not the
civilized that murder and create mayhem.
Semi-auto weapons ARE used for hunting!!

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.
