- Vowing to intensify his campaign against gun violence, Rev. Jesse Jackson held a protest rally Saturday at a Lake Barrington semiautomatic rifle manufacturer.
Leading 80 supporters to the remote industrial park that houses D.S. Arms, Jackson said assault weapons were turning Chicago into a war zone.
Assault weapons? Can we get a listing of each and every homicide linked to one of these so-called "assault weapons"?
- Though [D.S. Arms Attorney Michael] Danforth acknowledged that the company's weapons are available for purchase at the retail level, he said they have never been linked to a crime in Chicago.
Wait a minute - D.S. Arms, which manufactures a product which complies fully with the laws of Illinois and the United States and is used primarily by the military and law enforcement organizations, has NEVER had one of it's products linked to a Chicago crime? Then why is Jesse the jackass protesting?
- Last summer, Jackson, accompanied by Pfleger, first visited D.S. Arms, the closest gun manufacturer to Chicago.
Nothing to link them to any crime. Nothing hinting at straw purchases. Nothing that indicates they might be flooding the market with guns. Just that they're the closest. What an idiot.
