Three People Attend Jesse Jackson’s Protest, Fifty Counter-Protesters Drown Them Out

Washington DC – -(Ammoland.com)- Early this month, I had a post that looked at Jesse Jackson’s June 4 speech in Racine, Wisconsin, wherein he led audience members in a chant “June 5, we vote, to revive, our democracy” and “June 16th we march, guns out, jobs in.”

The “June 5” portion of the chant was aimed at enticing people to head to the polls and vote against Republican Gov. Scott Walker in the union-led recall effort.

The “June 16th” portion of the chant was aimed at enticing people to march on gun stores and “stop the gun trail, that’s bringing the guns to kill the people.” And to fire up the audience for this protest march, Jackson referred to gun store owners as “insurgents.”

In the end, the June 5 activities were futile, as Gov. Walker handily defeated the machine that tried to remove him from office. And the June 16th results were even worse for Jackson, as only 3 people showed up for a planned protest of a Detroit area gun store.

That’s not a typo—only 3 people showed up. And the funniest part is that Jesse Jackson wasn’t one of them. He did all that talking, all that huffing and puffing, and then stayed home while less than a handful of his followers protested the “insurgents” who sell “the guns to kill the people.”

By the way, more than 50 people showed up as part of a counter-protest in support of the gun store. Thus, Jackson’s minions were outnumbered at least 17 to 1.

I guess protests even indirectly aimed at the 2nd Amendment aren’t as popular as they used to be.

If Jesse is calling legally acquired gun owners terrorists,what does he call his own black race who have more illegal guns than any other racial group, and have the highest gun crime and murder rate of all people's.They are the only people to turn a jungle into a slum; look what they are doing to the USA. In light of the incompetence and criminality of these people, they have made one their President??? It is fiitting that America collapses into oblivion with a black man at the helm.

I am truly worried that the Aurora Colorado shooting is going to be used to try and repeal the Second Amendment.

It is hard to fathom that even 3 people could believe stripping away the Second Amendment protects Democracy and closing guns shops actually creates more jobs.

What's next, blaming the toys in a McDonald's Happy Meal for kids being overweight?

Oh…Wait…What?

Silly San Francisco got me again.
