How can it be nobody’s ever thought of this before? Let’s have hardcore criminals patrol the streets from inside prison walls. Sheer genius. And people call Wayne LaPierre the crazy one.
The Rev. Jesse Jackson advocated anti-violence and gun control Tuesday during his traditional Christmas Day sermon at the Cook County Jail, where he challenged inmates to help get weapons off the streets.
Um, Reverend, has it occurred to you these guys can’t really do much. You know, since they’re locked up.
Jackson has long been a supporter of gun control, including a ban on assault weapons. He called the deadly Dec. 14 shootings at a Connecticut elementary school a tipping point for the nation when it comes to gun control.
Of course his town has among the strongest so-called “gun control” laws on the planet, and they don’t seem to be helping. The obvious has always escaped the Reverend.
“We’ve all been grieving about the violence in Newtown, Connecticut, the last few days,” he said after addressing inmates at the jail. “Most of those here today … have either shot somebody or been shot. We’re recruiting them to help us stop the flow of guns … We need their awareness of the dangers of more guns and more drugs.”
Has it occurred to this moron there may be at least a fewer guns off the streets because these people he’s calling on for help aren’t out there? Yet people still listen to this moron.
