James Yeager, the CEO of Tactical Response, a Tennessee company that specializes in weapons and tactical training, posted a video on Facebook and YouTube yesterday, detailing what he’ll do if President Obama issues any executive orders on gun control:
“I”m not f’g putting up with this… if it goes one inch further, I’m gonna start killing people.”
This is who the NRA represents. Nutjobs. Anarchists. Violent far-right extremists who live every day in mortal fear that the commies, or the Nazis (to them they’re the same), are coming to take their dear beloved country away from them. They’re crazy. They’re dangerous. They’re a hair-trigger away from going literally ballistic, and far too many fries short of a happy meal.
These guys don’t love their guns because of “tradition,” or some lofty high-minded love of the Constitution. They love their guns because they’re black helicopter conspiracy nuts. They are the very people who probably should be on the bottom of the list of those permitted to buy guns in the first place. And they are the best argument around for why this country isn’t mature enough to handle the responsibility that comes with gun ownership.
They are the NRA.
PS This guy says his store is for police and military, among others. I’d love to know what police department, and military members, are supporting this guy.
