On Gun Control: CEO who trains in weapons skills tells ‘patriots’ to “load your mags,” he’ll “fire the first shot”

First NRA CEO Wayne LaPierre started literally foaming at the mouth over gun control, then Alex Jones went all rootin’ tootin’ cowboy on us and now we have a CEO who is ready to lock and load.

Huffington Post reports:

James Yeager, CEO of Tactical Response, a Tennessee company that trains people in weapon and tactical skills, claimed in a video posted on YouTube and Facebook that he would “start killing people” if President Barack Obama decides to take executive action to pass further gun control policies, Raw Story reports.

(my bold)

With his hands crossed, Yeager says in a sort of lisp-y voice, “Fuck. that. If this sparks a civil war, I’ll be glad to fire the first shot.”



In a call to ‘patriots’ Yeager urges them to “load your damn mags” and “get ready to fight” in what he claims will turn into a “civil war” if gun control measures in the country get any stricter.

Again, Yeager trains people in weapon skills. He needs to sit his ass down in an anger management group asap.

    Here is a link which also contains the pre-edited version where he states if Obama moves forward with gun control, he’s going to “start killing people.” http://www.rawstory.com/rs/2013/01/10/unhinged-tactical-response-ceo-threatens-to-start-killing-people-over-obamas-gun-control/

      That’s the same one isn’t it?

        Sorry, when I first went through the article I didn’t see a reference to the “killing people” statement and assumed it was the editied version hastily uploaded after it was pulled. I couldn’t take watching the vid clip again, though I should have verified.

        • That Guy

          Not a problem. I was just confused.

    james is a good man and i can understand his emotion. it was an emotional response that is a response that many people have. probably not the best idea to say what he said,but i understand his feelings. imagine, if you would, that you have done something your whole life, are very proud of what you do, and then someone comes around and says ” you cant do that anymore, hand over all your tools.” you would be upset to say the least. i serve in the military and i took an oath the defend the constitution. this, the patriot act( also known as the limitless government surveillence act) sopa, etc. are all direct attacks on the constitution i swore to protect and my and your rights are being chipped away one at a time. this is what he means by he will not be run by a dictator. big business and big government has already taken all the money out of the hands of regular americans, now they are taking your rights too. all that is left after that is slavery of the common man to the upper elite few. and that, my friends, is tyranny.

      But no one is taking away legitimate guns. This guy is just paranoid.

      I concur regarding: SOPA and I’ll add, ACTA, PIPA and the NDAA to that list. However, kids are being slaughtered. It’s becoming almost commonplace. I don’t want guns banned. I want assholes with massive weapons banned. That’s all. There is no more to read into it.

    not like he isn’t already a liar about his “skills” qualifications…http://livewire.talkingpointsmemo.com/entry/tactical-response-ceo-lists-false-firearms-training-credentials

      I read the article but had a hard time getting beyond the picture. He has crazy eyes. Reminds me of Michele Bachmann.

    All my guns and mags are loaded and reading to go. I will die on my feet before i live on my knees. Drones haven’t stop the Taliban and afghans have they. Do you think 100 million gun owners will be stopped by threats of drones? How many of you liberals will die in those attacks also, its called collateral damage. He has thought it through and is ready to be a martyr for freedom. While liberals dont stand for anything that may cost them anything U thinks he will be the only one dying i a civil war? Unarmed liberals will be the first to go.
