Jesse Jackson: AR-15s are ‘for Domestic, Homegrown Terrorism’

By Woody published on in Chronicle, General, Gun Rights, Industry News, Second Amendment

Debate over the recent U.N. Arms Trade Treaty and the Colorado Cinema shooting has spurred a spate of legislative talk about banning a variety of firearms and shooting accessories. In particular, there’s renewed political efforts to try to enact a new “Assault Weapons Ban” and a “large-capacity magazine ban.”

A common assertion is that gun owners don’t need to possess self-loading rifles, such as AR-15s and AK-style semi-autos. For example, President Barack Obama told the National Urban League last week that “AK-47s belong in the hands of soldiers … not on the streets of our cities.” Illinois Governor Pat Quinn proposed a ban on high-capacity ammunition magazines and added, “There is no place in the state of Illinois for weapons designed to rapidly fire at human targets at close range.” In one of the following story links, Jesse Jackson even claims, “These are weapons for domestic, homegrown terrorism.”

    Jesse Jackson is an opportunistic moron. All of the rhetoric he has spewed out of his mouth is inaccurate and just plain stupid. He has no data or statistics to back up his claims and he is like an attention deficit starved child who needs to have his face in the national spotlight.
    Jesse Jackson is a clown, a buffoon, an idiot, and a jackass also.
    What this adulterer should be doing is trying to the best of his ability to keep his thieving son and his tax cheating daughter-in-law from going to jail. His son is one of the biggest thieves out there in politics and he got caught.
    Jesse Jackson is calling anyone who owns a so-called “assault rifle” a domestic terrorist? Does he call his son and daughter-in-law “Liars and Thieves” while he is calling us domestic terrorists? I don’t think so. Its one thief who is coddling another thief and his wife who is also a thief also.

    Well lets see President Obama says that they should be in the hands of soldiers, Senator Feinstein believes all soldiers and veterans are nut cases due to PTSD and opposes them having them ,but it’s ok for retired police officers to have an exception.Smells like the beginning of a police state. I believe that Senator Feinstein has a PTSD issue herself she keeps bringing up that she saw Harvey Milks body which bullets had made imploding wounds she has shown both her ignorance of PTSD and weapons ,oh by the way she is a concealled weapons carrier,she thinks that its ok for her to be armed but no one else,as a matter of fact when she was mayor of San Francisco she banned handguns and then was caught carrying breaking her own law her defense was I made the law so it doesn’t pertain to me. Things that make ya go hummm?

    Why is it always the biggest moral hypocrites who love to open their big mouths. Of coarse rarely does anything coherent come out. Finstein alias (airhead) and the Jesse Jackson family mafia, really must find something to do that is not going to hurt the country. Unfortunately, their mindset is all about jumping on the self centered ,mine is the only agenda that counts, bandwagon. The first thing they should do is study histories killing machines of the last one hundred years. Hitler,Stalin,Pol Pot and lastly Mao Tse-tung who murdered seventy-five million of his own countrymen. They all wanted to disarm and control their populations, Psychologically,physically and morally. Sound familiar Mr. President? Last but not least the greatest murderers of all time the abortionist. No matter how they try to rationalize and make excuses for their reasons, the bottom line is they are killers. So Jesse Jackson, the only real terrorist are the ones trying to take away the American people’s right to self defense and self determination.. Chuck Shummer, Reid, Major Bloomberg, will you come defend me and mine when our lives are on the line, when they ban free speech, when they decide we are all terrorist because we love freedom, will you stand up for us? If your ideologies (you Progressives, communist)are so important and righteous why is the country circling the drain. Why are whole societies circling the drain. Some how I doubt it.
