The dirty little secret is that there are no operating gun ranges within the geographical borders of Detroit. He obviously chose Action Impact because it is located just outside the city of Detroit border. Thusly, the entire premise of Jackson’s anti-gun campaign has been proven to be false. As mentioned earlier, there are no gun shops in Detroit. So, where are the jobs?
Moreover, Jackson’s so-called rally at the Action Impact gun range did have an unintended effect. He actually brought the so-called divided people – whites and blacks – together to mount a counter-protest. Jackson’s designated minion, the Operation Push Detroit Chairman, and two other people doubling as props were given a most proper reception from about 50 freedom and gun loving folks of all hues.
The aforementioned demonstration did garner interest from the local media. However, when the event unfolded, it was quite evident that Jackson’s message was ignored by a community over-run with violent criminals and local law enforcement’s ability to keep crime in check. In fact, as of June 10th there have been 152 homicides in the city Detroit alone per DPD’s web site. Jackson has lost touch with the community he is trying to lead.
