I have always hated this pompous bag of wind. I really think he is the cause of some much racism in this country. Here is now showing that he really is completely ignorant when it comes to guns. This country would be a better place, if his god would call him home.
Jessie Jackson is a complete moron about guns
On Sunday, liberal activist Jesse Jackson repeated his claim that semi-automatic weapons can shoot down airplanes and said they could also “blow up railroads.”
“Semi-automatic weapons are not just about gun control, they’re about national security,” he said while appearing on Fox News.
“You know that these weapons can shoot down airplanes, they can blow up railroads. This is really a whole national security issue,” he added.
Jackson said he was okay with having a gun for the house, or a gun for hunting.
“But these semi-automatic, military-style assault weapons — they shot at the White House two years ago, so none of us are safe,” he added.
Last month, Jackson made a similar claim.
“The young man who did the killing in Aurora, Colorado, with the arsenal he had– he was right near the airport, right near the runways [in] Denver. He could shoot down airplanes, so this is a matter of homeland security as well,” he said.
That claim, The Blaze said, was called “laughable” by a former CIA officer.
“I just read the Jesse Jackson quote and quite frankly it’s laughable,” said Jason Hanson, author of “The Covert Guide to Concealed Carry.”
“It’s clear Rev. Jackson doesn’t know the first thing about rifles and guns in general. It’s like me making a comment about quilting, something I know absolutely nothing about,” he added. “With the type of rifle that James Holmes had it would be impossible to shoot down a plane. Okay, nothing is impossible, but it would be as likely as aliens knocking on my front door tomorrow.”
Chris Gahr, who assisted in aircraft investigations while in the Marine Corps, told the Blaze that one would “have a better chance of being hit by lightning while winning the lottery than bringing down a commercial airliner with the weapons that [accused Aurora, Colorado shooter James] Holmes carried.”
