Rev. Jesse Jackson Explains Why We Need More Gun Control. Kinda.

Give CNN’s talking head an A for effort. You can see the frustration on his face as he tries to pin the good reverend down on a simple question: if Chicago has some of the toughest anti-gun laws in the country and just passed 500 gun deaths this year anyway, what reason is there to believe more gun control would reduce gun crime anywhere else? And here’s Jesse’s response . . .

Chicago is in a bubble, as the manufacturers, we’re a target market for gun flow and they exploit the poverty and the pain so you have a combination, a deadly combination, of guns and drugs and the low intensity warfare, guns and drugs and jobs and then jobs, we need a comprehensive plan, it’s not just gun violence, it’s also the violence of poverty and lack of education and lack of dreams, where people think killing is the only way out, and so we need a comprehensive plan, this is the need for an urban policy for reconstruction, not just gun violence alone is the issue here.

Anyone want to take a crack at diagraming that sentence?
