Jesse and Phleger once again demonstrate their irrelevance and complete ignorance of guns. Their entire act consists of "Eek! Guns bad!"
- Rev. Jesse Jackson and three busloads of supporters marched on a Lake Barrington gun manufacturer today, calling on the suburban community to vote the business out of town.
"Chicago is voted gun dry," Jackson said. "We want [Lake] Barrington to vote gun dry."
A lawyer for the company rebuts:
- D.S. Arms does not sell firearms to the public, said Michael Danworth, a lawyer who represents the company. He said it's a law-abiding company that has about 20 clients, including law-enforcement and military distributors.
Danworth said it's a culture of violence that's the problem, not guns.
To Jackson's charge that assault rifles manufactured at D.S. Arms end up on the streets illegally, Danworth said, "The firearms used in most homicides in Chicago are pistols. You don't see too many gangbangers on the South Side carrying rifles in their pants."
Why isn't this roadshow protesting Bryco (Jennings)? Or Lorcin? Or one of the myriad of other manufacturer that turn out cheap guns by the bushel? The gangbangers aren't running around with rifles worth a few hundred bucks.
