My good friend at DS Arms outside of Chicago took another battering from that perennial Rockin' Man of God Jesse "Boom Boom" Jackson last week. This from the Chicago Tribune:
Vowing to intensify his campaign against gun violence, Rev. Jesse Jackson held a protest rally Saturday at a Lake Barrington semiautomatic rifle manufacturer.You wouldn't know it from this article, but DSA has done a tremendous job of battling the disgusting fake "Reverend's" grandstanding. I've been thinking what I can do to help out...next month, I'll be going to DSA to do a full episode of SHOOTING GALLERY on their exclusive law enforcement training. We'll also be doing video coverage on DSA and their superb line of SA-58 FALs for DRTV!
Leading 80 supporters to the remote industrial park that houses D.S. Arms, Jackson said assault weapons were turning Chicago into a war zone.
"It does not stand to reason that we'll fight a war to end weapons of mass destruction from flowing in Iraq and increase the flow of weapons at home," he said.
Notably absent from the protest was Rev. Michael Pfleger, who often joins Jackson's protests against gun violence. Both were arrested last June after a confrontation during a protest at a south suburban gun store. Criminal charges of trespassing were dropped.
Pfleger is on a mandated leave from his parish at St. Sabina Catholic Church following incendiary comments he made last month about Sen. Hillary Clinton during a guest sermon at Trinity United Church of Christ.
Last summer, Jackson, accompanied by Pfleger, first visited D.S. Arms, the closest gun manufacturer to Chicago. The company has a catalog of 20- to 30-round semiautomatic rifles geared mostly for military and police use.
Woa! Maybe the Right Reverend JJ Himself will attend! Maybe I can get his autograph!
Congrats to my friend Marc Galli and DSA President Dave Selvaggio for standing up for us all! Damn nice rifles, too!
