Joe Jackson

I CARRY A GUN

And I'm Not Afraid to Use It

Joe Jackson FLASHED A HANDGUN to a room full of people at a recent event in Vegas ... and told the crowd it's just like an American Express card ... he doesn't leave home without it.

The bizarre moment all went down while Joe was at the Tuscany Hotel and Casino in Vegas this weekend to be honored at the Black Music Awards (apparently that's a thing).

Joe was introduced by his friend -- Majestik -- who told the crowd a story about Joe confronting Michael Jackson's bodyguards two weeks before MJ's death.

During the alleged confrontation, Majestik says Joe flashed his gun at the guards and said -- "If I hear you all givin' my son drugs or doing anything illegal with my son ... I'ma kill all of you."

When Majestik turned the mic over to Joe -- JJ corroborated the story ... saying, "It's very true. Every word he said."

Then Joe told the crowd ... "I carry a piece everywhere I go ... I'm gonna show it to you."

Joe proceeded to open up his suit jacket, revealing a handgun holstered by his hip. Joe explained, "I've been threatened a lot of times and so I need to be safe."

We reached out to Joe to see if he is even legally allowed to pack heat -- but so far, we have yet to hear back.

What a s***bag. And I doubt he is ever sober enough to shoot at anything.

So do I Joe. The difference between the two of us is that I am licensed to do so, am educated, and even shoot for sport. I wonder what on earth your reason would be?

Allowing this loser to carry a gun makes me wonder who else is allowed to. Scary. And he threatens his son's bodyguards--and brags about it? What an idiot.

first, if hes left handed the holster should be on the other side. positioning the gun that way invites an quick easy disarming. I'm willing to bet the LV police will be paying him a visit and relieving him of his weapon.

I can't wait to see the video where Joe removes the gun from it's holster, places it against his temple and pops off a round into that empty cavity between his ears. :-)
