Gun Control Laws Create Jobs
On June 3rd, Jesse Jackson held a pre-recall election rally for a small gathering of people in Racine, WI. And although he spent some time leading the attendees in the mantra, “June five, we vote, to revive, our democracy,” his central point was a silly and unrelated contention that gun control creates jobs.
Seriously: he told the people who attended the rally to mark their calendars for the recall vote on June 5th and for a march on gun stores on June 16th. His mantra for the march on gun stores lacked the cadence of his mantra for the recall vote: “June 16th we march, guns out, jobs in.”
He explained his march on gun stores thus: “We are fighting a war to protect democracy from insurgents, and the first thing you do is to stop the gun trail, that’s bringing the guns to kill the people.”
