I have said it a hundred times before. It isn't the pro-gun control people out there that will result in tighter regulations, it's the pro-gun fanatics, who speak before the think. Here is the latest one of these fanatics:
The CEO of a Tennessee company that specializes weapons and tactical training is threatening to “start killing people” if President Barack Obama moves forward with gun control measures.
In a video posted to YouTube and Facebook on Wednesday, Tactical Response CEO James Yeager went ballistic over reports that the president could take executive action with minor gun control measures after the mass shooting of 20 school children in Connecticut last month.
James Yeager later removed the video and replaced it with an edited version that removed the threat of "killing people", but Dave Edwards from Raw Story grabbed the original video:
Here we have a highly trained man making threats of killing people. Law enforcement should already be questioning the guy and do so with that in mind. If they find him a credible threat, then he should be tried and if convicted his right to own any gun stripped away.
But none of that will happen. Instead he has just given the people pushing for more gun control a perfect example of why it is needed. He has hurt his own cause due to a moment of outrage, and that is really why we do need better gun control. Right now it's just words, but what might it be next?
