Rev. Jess Jackson and Fr. Michael Pfleger were arrested for blocking the door of Chuck's Gun Shop in Riverdale, a suburb abutting the southern edge of Chicago. They and others were there protesting the ready availability of guns next to a crime-plagued part of the city, which bans the sales of guns.
Some accused Jackson of grandstanding; the arrest was at least his 15th associated with various protests. It was Jackson's third appearance at the gun shop. And he has promised to return.
