Tactical Response Wants YOU! by Dan Vojir



Inviting the FBI to investigate you for threatening bodily harm to American citizens may not be the smartest thing to do.

Then again, nobody expects "Patriot Movement" or "survivalists" to be smart. Lock-and-load mentalities are what they are. And in the video below, we get to see a lock-and-load mentality at its most brutal and its most irrational: James Yeager, "CEO" of Tactical Response blatantly states that if President Obama tries to take away his assault weapons, he will act as a "patriot" and "start killing people."

The video has sparked a furor. "Unhinged" "Nutjob" "Anarchist" "Far too many fries short of a Happy Meal." but for all the response, it is REAL, and everyone must deal with it. The YouTube Channel for Tactical Response has since taken down the video and replaced it with "gonna start killing people" edited out, but the force of the video has shaken Americans to their very core.

It All Started With...

A FOX News Headline:

Biden to meet with NRA after suggestion White House could act on

 gun control without Congress


Which devolved into A   Drudge Report   headline featuring Hitler and Stalin:


Drudge Headline by The Examiner


Nice going, Drudge. Nazis, Commies, Dictators are all piled in a convoluted mess for the lock-and-load mind.  

What FOX and Drudge failed to point out was that Biden's suggestion was in small attempts by the White House in gun control and that the White House does not have the power to exert executive orders concerning higher gun control (such as banning assault weapons). The WH might make a suggestion to the Congress on that matter, but James Yeager's representatives would have to vote on it: a far cry from "dictator".  

The Old Paranoia Renewed

We began to see the results of the   paranoia   that struck after Sandy Hook. Yeager, a weapons salesman and trainer, is now the extreme result: "patriot movement" and "survivalist" hate groups have sprung up all over the country at an alarming rate in the past four years, with people like Yeager ready to blow at the slightest mention of curtailing Second Amendment rights.  

And he followed on the tails of another ranter, Alex Jones. Jones and his tirade on Piers Morgan's CNN program and on Piers Morgan himself (he wants to have Piers deported for supporting gun control) went viral - but in the wrong direction, displaying the NRA as completely unhinged. What Yeager and Jones may have done, in fact,, is to sway the public away from the tenets of the NRA and more towards Obama's plans for greater gun control:

     "I can't think of a better advertisement for gun control than Alex Jones' interview last night," Morgan   told CNN on Tuesday. "It was startling, it was terrifying in parts, it was completely deluded. It was based on a premise of making Americans so fearful that they all rush out to buy even more guns ... the kind of twisted way that he turned everything into this assault on the Second Amendment is exactly what the gun rights lobby people do."

It also drowns out NRA chief Wayne LaPierre's proposal that there should be more guns in schools: can you see a James Yeager standing guard at your local school with a "stand your ground" attitude? The image is one of frightening paranoia resulting in bloodshed. Greater if the school happens to be in an inner city. 


What of Yeager?

If James Yeager is questioned by the FBI, cries of   Ruby Ridge   will undoubtedly surface and he will   become a "patriot" hero. If the NRA decides to take the quiet road, Yeager will be dismissed as a "nutjob" and "renegade". Sides will be taken, for sure and perhaps the ultimate loss will be sanity.

In an ironic promo for a Tactical Response   gun training DVD:

"FINALLY - a DVD training system that trains the brain before the body!" 

 Right.
