The Rev. Jesse Jackson led a group of nearly 100 people who picketed outside of a River North movie theater on Saturday, calling for a ban on the sale and possession of assault weapons.
Rev. Jackson called assault weapons instruments of domestic terrorism.
“It must give al Qaeda, the Taliban and terrorists comfort to know that they can use the Second Amendment and use it to create an arsenal that can kill many innocent people,” he said in the march outside of the AMC River East Theaters, at 322 W. Illinois St.
