Rev. Jesse Jackson joined the Brady Campaign’s initiative “Stop Bad Apple Gun Dealers” on Saturday morning outside of Chuck’s Gun Store in Riverdale, Illinois.
The store has been targeted by gun control advocates for its proximity — just 20 miles south of the Windy City nearby the Indiana border — and past studies have traced roughly 20 percent of crime guns found in Chicago back to the store. Chuck’s was the subject of a Brady protest in September when the initiative launched.
The protest, which was met by supporters of the store, ultimately led to a confrontation with Jackson, Chicago activist Father Michael Pfleger and Brady president Dan Gross and store employees and the owner.
