Mississippi Gun Show Displays Signs That Has Councilman Seeing Red

A Mississippi gun show in Jackson has Councilman Carl Stokes enraged. It caused major liberal backlash and conservative support.

Recently, Stokes made headlines when he encouraged violence against police officers by saying “What I suggest, we get the black leadership together, and as these jurisdictions come into Jackson, we throw rocks, bricks, and bottles at them. That will send a message we don’t want you in here."

Rankin County Sheriff Bryan Bailey calmly denounced Stokes’ calls for insurrection, saying that “you can’t fight jealousy or ignorance, and the statements that Mr. Stokes has made are complete ignorance.”

At the Trademark gun expo, one sign read “We don’t sell guns to terrorists or democrats its too hard to tell the difference." The other sign read, “If you voted for Kenneth Stokes or Barack Obama, you’re too stupid to own a gun. Please find another dealer.”

On Monday, Stokes responded to the signs by saying “It’s an honor, it’s a privilege, and it’s a pleasure to be mentioned in the same sentence with President Barack Obama. Now, if he was trying to say something to me anything but good, I think of him like I do that Sheriff of Rankin County, he’s a dumb bastard."

Yet, Stokes relies on local police to keep him, his family and his citizens safe from crime. Anyone who supports Stokes is probably too dangerous to own a gun, as they may take Stokes suggestions to heart and hurt innocent officers.
