tyler — Jessie Jackson is back in the news again.
This week, while speaking in the state of Wisconsin, he made another controversial remark making some gun owners and gun shop owners mad.
He was speaking to an audience about issues such as job creation, the upcoming presidential election, and guns. He had some fairly strong words to say about firearms, stating that when you want to "protect the democracy from the insurgents the first thing you do is you stop the gun trading."
After speaking about the need for more jobs, Jackson called listeners to start "marching on gun shops across the country." Apparently, Jackson never got the memo that the gun trade has been a consistent job creator over the past several years. One chant that he repeated with his followers was, "Guns out. Jobs in." So, he's all about job creation, but only if those jobs don't have anything to do with guns.

And by the way, the Reverend Jackson is from Illinois. A state with some of the toughest guns laws in the nation.
Look how that's working out.
That's my point of view, what's yours?
