The CEO of a company that teaches people how to use guns has posted a ranting video online in which he claims he will ‘start killing people’ if President Obama uses his executive powers to introduce tighter gun controls.
James Yeager runs Tactical Response, a Tennessee company that trains people in weapon and tactical skills. In a video posted on YouTube and Facebook, Yeager describes President Obama as a ‘dictator’ and claims that tighter gun control measures will result in ‘civil war.’
The video is Yeager’s angry response to Vice President Joe Biden’s comment on Wednesday that President Obama might use executive action if Congress takes no action on gun violence in the wake of the Sandy Hook massacre.
If this is a person trying to convince me that he is sane and should be carrying any type of weapon, he sure is going about it the wrong way. I wouldn’t trust this A-hole with a butter knife.
McDonnell isn’t much of a businessman. Saslaw is right. Why should Virginians absorb the entire cost when clearly 1/3 cars on our highways are out of state. McDonnell shoots himself in the foot, again, with this proposal. The metrics aren’t on his side.
Mr. Kotter, Mr. Kotter! Please, let me answer! [Best Horshak imitation] Joe–yes. You are being a chauvanist. You interrupt, you talk over, and you dismiss. That is pretty much the definition of ‘chauvanist’ in modern times. Furthermore, you are really getting to be pretty much just your basic A-hole. Let’s not fancy it up.
Groups in Utah are training teachers to carry guns, Tennessee is hiring armed “security specialists” for $11.50 an hour and the National Rifle Association is working on a plan to arm school volunteers even as teachers gather in protest outside the group’s headquarters.
Are security specialists the answer? Are armed teachers the answer? I don’t think that “good” vs “bad” is the answer. I think that well-trained and present vs. disturbed might be more to the point. What we don’t need out there is the amatuer hour if a school violence issue arises. Too many people’s lives are at stake.
NRA: Our meeting with Joe Biden’s task force went exactly as well as you’d expect
The National Rifle Association of America is made up of over 4 million moms and dads, daughters and sons, who are involved in the national conversation about how to prevent a tragedy like Newtown from ever happening again. We attended today’s White House meeting to discuss how to keep our children safe and were prepared to have a meaningful conversation about school safety, mental health issues, the marketing of violence to our kids and the collapse of federal prosecutions of violent criminals.
We were disappointed with how little this meeting had to do with keeping our children safe and how much it had to do with an agenda to attack the Second Amendment. While claiming that no policy proposals would be “prejudged,” this Task Force spent most of its time on proposed restrictions on lawful firearms owners – honest, taxpaying, hardworking Americans. It is unfortunate that this Administration continues to insist on pushing failed solutions to our nation’s most pressing problems. We will not allow law-abiding gun owners to be blamed for the acts of criminals and madmen. Instead, we will now take our commitment and meaningful contributions to members of congress of both parties who are interested in having an honest conversation about what works – and what does not.
NRA, how do we know what doesn’t work? I have yet to hear honest conversation.
Some ideas out of the meetings VP Biden has held:
Clarifying gun ownership responsibilities.
Restrict high-capacity clips and magazines.
Impose universal background checks, including those at gun shows, for every transaction.
