CEO Says He Will ‘Start Killing People’ if Obama Takes Action on Gun Control

Posted on Jan 10, 2013

James Yeager, CEO of a Tennessee company that specializes in weapons and tactical training, is threatening to go out and kill people if President Obama takes executive action on gun control. In a video uploaded to YouTube, the Tactical Response chief goes on a diatribe over reports that the Obama administration may pass some small gun control measures after the deadly elementary school shooting in Newtown, Conn.

“Vice President [Joe] Biden is asking the president to bypass Congress and use executive privilege, executive order to ban assault rifles and to impose stricter gun control. Fuck that,” Yeager says in the video. “I’m telling you that if that happens, it’s going to spark a civil war, and I’ll be glad to fire the first shot. I’m not putting up with it.”

Yeager goes on to say, “I’m not letting my country be ruled by a dictator. I’m not letting anybody take my guns! If it goes one inch further, I’m going to start killing people.”

According to Raw Story, the initial video was taken down and edited to exclude the last line.
