Once again Jesse Jackson has inserted himself into the gun control conversation by calling for a new "occupy" plan headed up by the TSA. Huh?
Mike Adams writing on infowars.com said "Don't say we didn’t warn ya, but now the long-anticipated plan for armed TSA agents to patrol U.S. cities has been invoked by none other than Jesse Jackson. Today he called on President Obama to unleash “Homeland Security” on the streets of Chicago, a city racked by murders and violence even though it has the strictest gun laws in the country. The only group within DHS that has the manpower to “occupy” a U.S. city is the TSA, a widely-hated government agency which has already begun running roadside checkpoints across the country.
Jackson’s call is essentially a demand that DHS send in armed agents (TSA with guns) because the situation is so bad in Chicago that “something must be done.”
But how did the situation in Chicago get so bad in the first place? The city’s leaders disarmed all law-abiding citizens by passing outrageous gun control laws that gave criminals the upper hand. By definition, criminals don’t follow gun laws, so they remain armed and more confident than ever. Police are outgunned and citizens are outgunned, and the result is that Chicago has the highest murder rate of any city in the world. (This is called cause and effect.)
The real solution to all this, of course, would be to arm the citizens. Imagine 500,000 concealed carry permit holders packing heat all across the city. The violent shootings would all but cease, and criminals would run for the shadows. But instead of allowing citizens to defend themselves and help protect their own communities, Jesse Jackson — whose words are right on cue for the nationwide rollout of armed TSA agents — wants the government to bring in a new domestic security force that sounds an awful lot like Hitler’s Brownshirts.
Obama even talked about this “civilian national security force” in 2008, when he explained that it needed to be as well-armed and well-funded as the military! His exact words, as WND.com reminds us, were:
We cannot continue to rely only on our military in order to achieve the national security objectives we’ve set. We’ve got to have a civilian national security force that’s just as powerful, just as strong, just as well-funded.
For the record, the TSA is Obama’s so-called “civilian national security force.” They are the new non-military, non-sworn “army” that’s slated to occupy U.S. cities.
