The gun nut who threatened to “start killing people” on a video is now out with yet a third video
. Stop it already, James Yeager! You’re killing me! Yeager has a guest star on this video—his lawyer. It seems that in addition to packing ammo and a few snacks, you should also have the phone number of a good attorney... or at least just of an attorney
Yeager says he’ll post a link with ways to contact your elected officials. And when James says it, your first thought is “Oh no! He knows where they live!” Yeager cautions listeners that when they write to their elected officials, don’t use “excessive capitalization or exclamation points.” It seems James Yeager is the voice of reason when it comes to proper punctuation. James is fully supportive of curbs on the use of capitalization and exclamation points—but mention background checks for buying assault rifles, and he will kill you. At the end, Yeager says “it’s for us to reflect.” You know what else is a good time to reflect, James? Before you make your first video. Oops! Too late!
Yeager is doing duets with his lawyer because the state of Tennessee has suspended his handgun carry permit
. A Tennessee Homeland Security official said that Yeager’s comments sounded like “a veiled threat against the whole public.” As a member of the whole public, I would agree... except for the “veiled” part. A “threat against the whole public”! Really James, if you must be threatening, can you at least be specific. If you’re going to threaten the entire public, James, then everyone in society will have to stay away from you. But then, I’m sure that’s the case already. Yeager evidently worked for a private security contractor in Iraq
... just in case you were still unclear on all of the reasons that whole thing went so terribly wrong.
Leave it to Pat Robertson to give us a break from all the gun talk by saying something outrageous about something different. Pat says that you can’t keep love alive in a marriage if women allow themselves to become “slatternly looking
.” A quick pointer, Pat—advice from the 19th century sounds even more out of date when you use terminology from the 18th century.
