This is not how you convince people that gun control is a bad idea:

James Yeager — CEO of Tactical Response, a Tennessee-based company that specializes in firearms and tactical training — said the White House could spark a civil war if it issues an executive order on gun control. And Yeager said he would be "glad to fire the first shot."

"I'm not fucking putting up with this," he said in a video message posted Wednesday. "I am 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 gonna start killing people."

When people noticed that last bit, Yeager pulled the video from YouTube and then put up an edited version that didn't include the murderous threat. Because Yeager is a reasonable man, and a fine, upstanding member of the well regulated militia that our Founding Fathers had in mind when they wrote the Second Amendment.
