During a January 30 interview with the Wall Street Journal, the Rev. Jesse Jackson said that pro-gun supporters are "fighting the government with their Confederate ideology” (video below).
"These military weapons can blow up infra-structure... are we waiting for that?" Rev. Jackson said of assault weapons.
Rev. Jackson also called for the federal government to put the Department of Homeland Security on the streets on Chicago: "In places like Chicago, we need the Department of Homeland Security, not just local police."
The Obama administration has yet to respond to Jackson’s demand. Chicago had 500 homicides in 2012.
