First Jackson says "My job as a Texas Ranger is to protect the Bill of Rights for all the people of the United States" (or words to that effect).
Then he says "I Believe the Second Amendment is very important. If the Second Amendment is taken away, then the first will be taken, then the third, then the fourth - it would be a domino effect."
Then he says "The Second Amendment is a 'great' amendment" (whatever that means).
Then he says "people should not have magazines over 5 rounds."
Then he says, "If you are hunting, you don't need more than 5 rounds. If you are any good, you should need only one round."
Then he says "Assault Weapons should be only in the hands of the military & the police."
Then he says "It's okay for 'civilians' to have assault weapons as long as they have only 5 round magazines."
In ONE short interview, he expresses two diametrically opposite positions, the pro-second amendment position and the Brady Campaign position as well as the ba$tardized offspring of both as well as some meaningless gibberish.

STATEMENT OF JOAQUIN JACKSON
Recently, some misunderstandings have arisen about a news interview in which I participated a few years ago. After recently watching a tape of that interview, I understand the sincere concerns of many people, including dear friends of mine. And I am pleased and eager to clear up any confusion about my long held belief in the sanctity of the Second Amendment.
In the interview, when asked about my views of “assault weapons,” I was talking about true assault weapons – fully automatic firearms. I was not speaking, in any way, about semiautomatic rifles. While the media may not understand this critical distinction, I take it very seriously. But, as a result, I understand how some people may mistakenly take my comments to mean that I support a ban on civilian ownership of semiautomatic firearms. Nothing could be further from the truth. And, unfortunately, the interview was cut short before I could fully explain my thoughts and beliefs.
In fact, I am a proud owner of such rifles, as are millions of law-abiding Americans. And many Americans also enjoy owning fully automatic firearms, after being cleared by a background check and meeting the rigorous regulations to own such firearms. And these millions of lawful gun owners have every right – and a Second Amendment right – to own them.
As a hunter, I take great pride in my marksmanship. Every hunter should practice to be skilled to take prey with a single shot, if possible. That represents ethical, humane, skilled hunting. In the interview several years ago, I spoke about this aspect of hunting and my belief that no hunter should take the field and rely upon high capacity magazines to take their prey.
But that comment should never be mistaken as support for the outright banning of any ammunition magazines. In fact, such bans have been pursued over the years by state legislatures and the United States
Congress and these magazine bans have always proven to abject failures.
Let me be very clear. As a retired Texas Ranger, during 36 years of law enforcement service, I was sworn to uphold the United States Constitution. As a longtime hunter and shooter, an NRA Board Member, and as an American – I believe the Second Amendment is a sacred right of all law-abiding Americans and, as I stated in the interview in question, I believe it is the Second Amendment that ensures all of our other rights handed down by our Founding Fathers.
I have actively opposed gun bans and ammunition and magazine bans in the past, and I will continue to actively oppose such anti-gun schemes in the future.
I appreciate my friends who have brought this misunderstanding to light, for it has provided me an opportunity to alleviate any doubts about my strong support for the NRA and our Second Amendment freedom.
FULL AUTO'S ARE LEGAL AND SHOULD BE!
You missed the Boat !!!!
