You might have seen a video we posted yesterday of a gun store owner – he’s actually much more than that, according to his bio – who posted a video on YouTube and Facebook saying he was “going to start killing people” if President Obama issued an executive order on guns in response to the Sandy Hook Elementary killings.
Well, today we find that he’s posted another video, that seems to be a response to the intense reaction he received from his video that seemed to some be threatening to kill the President of the United States and/or attempt to overthrow the US government, or something similar.
Well, he’s done it again.
And before any says “he’s just one nut.” He’s a nut with nearly 50,000 subscribers on YouTube (though perhaps 49,000 of them are now Secret Service). And he’s claiming he’s assembled a “formidable army.” A reader yesterday tweeted me that this is “terrorism.” After listening to the second video, I’m at pains to find another suitable word for it.
Here are some of the first few sentences of today’s new video:
“I was mad when I said it. And probably allowed my mouth to overrun my logic, but I don’t retract any of my statements.”
Huh. So I shouldn’t have said what I said, but I stand by what I said. So we’re still on track for “killing people” if President Obama does anything on guns in the near future.
Here’s more – it’s rather incredible, especially considering the man’s bio claims he worked on protective security details in Baghdad, has worked alongside the US military, apparently been involved with other federal agencies, and is a former chief of police.
People are asking me what they should do. I don’t know, but I did tell you to load your mags, make sure your gun’s clean, and pack a backpack. If you haven’t done that, then don’t call me and ask me what to do next….
People are saying stuff like, ‘it needed to be said, but you shouldn’t have said it.’ Well, look around. Who else is gonna say it. Who else is gonna say it. And all you f’g fair-weather Second Amendment people who are telling me that I’m doing a f’g disservice to the gun community, that I’m not gonna stand for the tyranny, f-you. Our country wasn’t founded by f’g fair-weathered pussies….
If you’re not prepared to go all the way, then you’re not prepared to go anywhere….
I don’t condone anybody doing anything rash. I do not condone anybody committing any kind of felonies, up to and including aggravated assaults or murders, unless it’s necessary. Right now it is not necessary.
And I understand that my video was very volatile. You have no idea how many people that sent me emails and texts and called me and was like, ‘right on, my shit’s clean, my bag’s packed, you tell me when and were.’ You have no idea how quickly I accidentally assembled an army. I assure you, a quite formidable army. But now is not the time, it’s not time yet. It is time to get ready. Start working out. Start stretching, Start practicing. Start talking with your friends, coordinating on a local basis.
I don’t really know what to say to do next. I’ve a wait and see attitude about the whole thing. But I stand fast with my message. I have drawn my line in the sand. Not one more inch.
One would think the Secret Service, and a lot of other government entities, would have a problem with a man who seems to be talking about assembling an army with the intent of taking on the President of the United States by “killing people.” It’s difficult to understand why this man isn’t sitting before a judge right about now, unless it’s because every orifice of his body has already been bugged by the Treasury Department, the FBI and more.
Imagine if a man with a Muslim name had put out a video talking about taking on the President by killing people with his formidably army. He wouldn’t have time to put out a second video before he’d be on his way to Gitmo, no judges or lawyers involved.
This is the NRA, people.
