State suspends gun carry permit for TN man who made viral video (Jim Yeager)
MSNBC ^ | January 11, 2013 | Unattributed

Posted on 01/11/2013 2:51:26 PM PST by Seizethecarp

A Middle Tennessee firearms trainer who made an ominous and very public promise in a YouTube video that gained national attention this week, has had his handgun carry permit suspended Friday by the Tennessee Department of Safety and Homeland Security.

James Yeager, 42, had his permit suspended based on a "material likelihood of risk of harm to the public," the department said in a statement.

Yeager told Channel 4 News he is aware of the suspension, and his attorney will handle his statements going forward.

Yeager’s case could be a legal test of the 2A intention of the founders to preserve the right to “resist tyranny” and the 1A right to declare one’s intention to do so!

I suspect that Holder’s hacks may also be preparing a “terroristic threat” case against Yeager.

>"James Yeager, 42, had his permit suspended based on a "material likelihood of risk of harm to the public,"

How could they come to that conclusion?

When

Sura 9:29-33 “Make war upon such of those to whom the Scriptures have been given as believe not in God,

Sura 4:89 “seize them and slay them wherever you find them: and in any case take no friends or helpers from their ranks.”

Is a perfectly acceptable language, belief, and system of law to them


Yeager's only defense it to claim slammyhood. /s

The president doesn't have a “security clearance” as he is the ultimate authority and grantor of such clearances. Thus, when President Carter spoke of our Keyhole satellites, that information was instantly declassified, to the surprise and chagrin of the military and intelligence communities.

Obama does not qualify for a security clearance because of his past relationships with known terrorist, felons and heavy drug use...

May have been his intent. What case do they have when millions of blacks are flooding out of Django theaters and hitting social media demanding death to whitey without repercussion?

Yeager is bombastic.

He is NOT stupid. He wants to force the issue.

Not saying Yeager was serious about going to war for the constitution (which treasonous elitists are treating as toilet paper in every way) but if he was of that mind, banning his guns would not help those cowering, teasonous fools.

Dear Reader naming him a “terrorist” in the name of the government’s “war” on Islamic terrorism and sending him to gitmo (in violation of his constitutional rights) would inspire others to launch.

Obammy and his radicals want a civil war with Americans. That is what is behind all the anti-constitution smash mouth garbage. Leftists are blood thirsty. They don’t realize it will be their own.

James Yeager is a man with an impressive resume, including time as a small-town police chief and serving in security in Baghdad, but he said he spoke in anger when he made the video.

“I’m telling you, if that happens, it’s going to spark a civil war, and I’ll be glad to fire the first shot,” Yeager said in a video on his YouTube page.

He was reacting to a recent comment from Vice President Joe Biden that the Obama administration may take executive action to pass control measures.

“I’m not going to let anyone take my guns. If it goes one inch further, I’m going to start killing people,” he said in the YouTube video.

Yeager pulled the comments from YouTube after receiving backlash, and he said Thursday he didn’t mean what he said.

“I was angry when I made the video and probably should have metered my words better. I am not plotting to kill any officials or anything like that,” Yeager told Channel 4 News.

I think the last part - where he says - “I’m going to kill people.”

probably sealed the deal for his permit...thinking it and being ready is one thing - making a public announcement is another...he should have coded his words like, “I’m for the abortion and murder of fetus.”

...then he would have been okay and nominated for some sort of Obama Civil Duty Award...

Mr. Yeager seems prone to go a bit too far.

Yeager served as police chief of the town of Big Sandy, TN, about a decade ago. The former mayor said Yeager is intelligent and a crack shot, but he thought Yeager's plan to start a SWAT team wasn't what the quiet town of 500 people really needed, so the mayor fired him.

Frankly, I think this is a reasonable call.

That said, it's probably not a bad thing for the government to be reminded that they are servants of the people; the people have rights (including Second Amendment rights), and that ultimately in the proper order of things, the people are to be feared by the government and not the other way around.

“If somebody comes to take my guns, I will shoot them.”

I don’t see what the big deal is given that several thousand Americans said and acted upon those same thoughts at Lexington and Concord in 1775.

I agree. It was totally inappropriate for him to publicly declare he was going to kill people. Why would Yeager hand the feds the “bullets” they needed to take him down?

But yeah, a lot of us totally understand the anger that has now come from a system that is totally RIGGED by the radical left and the MSM propaganda arm.

A little background:

I’m not sure how much this has to do with this story.

James Yeager has been in a little YouTube p!ssing contest lately. Someone said that while he was in the Middle East working as security he acted in a cowardly way during a firefight.

I have no opinion one way or the other. There’s a lot about it here if anyone cares: http://www.wallsofthecity.net/2012/12/james-yeager-is-a-coward.html

The point is he made the statement publicly that he would ‘break your f*cking back’ to anyone who would call him a coward to his face. He would even pay for a plane ticket so a person could fly to him and have his back broken. A one way ticket with no hotel booking necessary.

Coward or no that was a really dumb thing to record yourself saying. Really dumb.

Why would it even be necessary to say that again. Like many millions of patriotic Americans, I swore an oath to "support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic". That oath did not have an expiration date. Obama and his evil, parasitic followers know that, and I'm certain it worries them. I'm happy to remind them indirectly, rather than through a direct threat that they can use to railroad another decent person. If Obama starts a second Civil War, I will not be cheering for the socialists to win, but I see no point in providing more detail regarding my attitude toward freedom, not on a public forum. I'm just praying the drug-addled sissy in our White House is either too lazy or too cowardly to press his luck and find out just how many real Americans are serious about freedom.

This action by a State Government is exactly why Americans who asks for permission (permits) from their respective Governments to purchase, possess, or carry a firearm puts the power to say “NO” or “RECIND” that same permission!

Not to mention knowing where to go to confiscate that same firearm!

If POTUS breaks the law {felony level} or deliberately breaches national security such as unauthorized release of classified material, POTUS should like any other citizen be subject to arrest and prosecution. The same agency which oversees POTUS security should also be bound by law to report any known violations by POTUS as well as arrest for same. Yea I know I'm dreaming. Not even POTUS should be above the law.

I saw the video, which I think he took down fairly quickly but which was reposted by several others.

He said in the video, “I am ready to start killing people.”

Sorry. He &%$#ed up. While that is not a threat against a specific individual, it is past the line. Any overt threat against named or un-named people is past the line.

He got what he asked for.
