Jesse Jackson has some real intellectual "facts" on "assault rifles". Let's discuss a few of them from a recent article. Sigh.
"An assault weapon is not useful for hunting game. It isn't easily available, like a handgun, for self-defense. It is designed for one purpose: war. These are weapons for domestic, homegrown terrorism. Aurora is close to Denver International Airport. A gunman at the end of a runway could shoot bullets through an airplane."
Why does this man still speak publicly? Talk about needing a mental health evaluation. Lets break the above paragraph down.
"An assault weapon is not useful for hunting game."- Wait what? I can't hunt a deer because my rifle is black? If it was white (Jesse isn't too fond of the white folk) I would better understand Jesse Jacksons' point.
Tell Remington and the other manufacturers who specifically market hunting AR's that they won't work on a Bambi.
- Ummm. So at the moment this is true. 2 months ago before all the anti-gun nonsense you could find an AR-15 in Walmart. It doesn't get any easier than that to find a rifle.
"It isn't easily available, like a handgun, for self-defense."
"It is designed for one purpose: war."- Thanks Jesse but last time I checked not one troop in Afghanistan was issued a Rock River Arms AR-15.
"These are weapons for domestic, homegrown terrorism."- Sure. Remember all those Bushmaster ads featuring Osama Bin Laden. Man those ads sold soooo many rifles!
"A gunman at the end of a runway could shoot bullets through an airplane."- Yep. The AR-15 shoots the infamous "plane killing unicorn bullets" that pierce the hull and then proceed to heet seek every small child on the plane.
