Jackson Ward 3 City Councilman Kenneth Stokes wants the Justice Department to investigate a local gun dealer who posted a derogatory poster about Mr. Stokes and President Obama in his store. He said the government should determine if he violated any regulations with his posters and revoke his federal firearms license if a violation occurred. He also referred to both the gun dealer and Rankin County Sheriff Bryan Bailey as a "dumb bastard".
Gun dealer Tim Wolverton displayed the posters at a gun show held at the Mississippi Trademart last weekend. Mr. Wolverton owns Downrange Sporting Goods on Pearl Street.
Alice Tisdale of the Jackson Advocate strongly criticized Mr. Wolverton for comparing Democrats to terrorists in a question posed to Mr. Stokes. She chastised the media for not focusing on that language in his signs.
