Guns don't kill people; James Yeager kills people.

I made a video response to James Yeager's video response to the response to James Yeager's video.  You can find it here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=I1dwMEyFjZ4

Yeager, the CEO of Tactical Response in Camden, Tenn., claims on his website to be "TN Department Of Safety Certified Firearms Instructor," but a spokesperson for the department told TPM this is not the case.

So, he's crazy or a fraud, take your pick.

Sounds like another nutjob who should not be allowed to keep a weapon.

"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. "

Now that's how it's done.

"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."

He hasn't really backed down:

"I do not condone anybody committing any kind of felonies up to and including any aggravated assaults or murders, unless it's necessary," Yeager said in the second video. "Right now it is not necessary."

This. This debate has brought out so many crazy people that should probably not be allowed to have guns.

hammettman: Enjoy your buttfarking in prison, tough guy. Kthanxbye.


I wish there was some likelihood of that. My bigger concern at the moment is, if the guy is really nuts (and he may very well be all talk), administrative revocation of his carry permit didn't really help anything and may just be his trigger, if you'll pardon the choice of words.

The use of violence and intimidation in the pursuit of political aims.

Don't we have laws against terrorism in the United States? The pant-pissers forget that Fartbama has, in the past, smoked an American citizen with a drone strike for threatening the lives of Americans.
 
2013-01-11 05:52:35 PM
He also asked those who "stole" and posted the unedited video version of his first video, which includes the statement about killing people, to take those videos down.

Ah, the King Douchenozzle von Crunk approach.

Also, according to the article, he stands by every word of what he says. "Not one inch farther." What are the new laws he so opposed to? Oh that's right, there aren't any. He's willing to start the killing over the mere suggestion of additional regulation. Even having the conversation is such a threat that it's worth murdering other Americans that don't share his beliefs.

For all of you that advocate making it easier to involuntarily commit someone, I think we've found our first test case.

I heard Wayne LaPierre suggest a national registry of the mentally ill the other day. This is a man who would go apoplectic at the thought of a national firearms registry, saying human beings who have committed no crime should be registered. Does he have even the vaguest sense of irony?

Gun advocates are losing a lot of credibility these past few weeks. So many among their ranks are angry, self-entitled, violence prone individuals who are early candidates for LaPierre's national mentally ill registry.
 
2013-01-11 06:12:41 PM
Although it won't do any good. Obama should go for a gun grab and watch all these pansies...

"If Obama bans assault weapons, I'll start shooting!!!11!"

Obama bans assault weapons...

"I'm drawing the line in the sand here. If Obama bans semi-automatic hand guns, I'll start shooting!!!11!"

"I'm drawing the line in the sand here. If Obama bans hunting rifles, I'll start shooting!!!11!"

Every time a gun advocate speaks of "2nd Amendment remedies," he's fantasizing about killing our soldiers, sailors, airmen, police officers, etc. That needs to mentioned in every gun discussion.
 
2013-01-11 06:13:54 PM
I don't think these right wing militia types think much about the words they say. Pretty sure guys like Yeager have customized their media diet and limited their personal interactions to the point where they seldom encounter people who don't constantly talk about how they live in increasing fear of the gun grabbers and feel so angry and afraid they could just start killing people any day now FOR FREEDOM!

When that's all you think and talk about every day you assume everybody else must feel the same way. Except the libs of course. Those guys are nuts.

While at the same time, they're the most incredibly pedantic people you've ever met. I dare you to misspeak and say 'gun' instead of 'rifle' or 'clip' instead of 'magazine'.

It's mostly cops who get murdered by these guys, and it happens fairly regularly. That plus the occasional Vietnam vet janitor who gets killed when on kamikazes into an IRS building with a plane.

They're aaaaaaaaaaall responsible, law-abiding gun owners. Right up until the moment they kill a few kids, some nuns, a couple puppies, and your mom. Then they're craaaaazy criminals that would have gotten their hands on guns anyway.

Well, he's expressing remorse now because in large part it will mean problems with him being able to conduct business as he once did.

Nut case? Absolutely. We all do dumb things. But at age 42 you should have a grasp on the timeliness of the internet and how spouting your mouth off in front of a camera has long-standing consequences. As a business owner that was just stupid of him.

So, either nut case or stupid. Either way his inability to legally carry seems like a good first step and I can't thank him enough for self-identifying. It's very thoughtful and convenient of him.

NASHVILLE --- The Tennessee Department of Safety and Homeland Security announced today the suspension of James Yeager's handgun carry permit after he was featured in a threatening YouTube video post that went viral earlier this week.

The decision to suspend Yeager's handgun carry permit was based on a "material likelihood of risk of harm to the public" (TCA 39-17-1352).

Yeager, 42, of Camden, Tenn., allegedly claimed he would "start killing people" if the Obama administration took executive action to pass gun control measures.

"The number one priority for our department is to ensure the public's safety. Mr. Yeager's comments were irresponsible, dangerous, and deserved our immediate attention. Due to our concern, as well as that of law enforcement, his handgun permit was suspended immediately. We have notified Mr. Yeager about the suspension today via e-mail, and he will receive an official notification of his suspension through the mail," Commissioner Bill Gibbons said.

Mr. Yeager is also the CEO of Tactical Response, a firearms and tactical training school in Camden. He is not a Department of Safety and Homeland Security certified instructor, nor is his school department certified.

Mr. Yeager has the right to seek review of the department's decision in the general sessions court of his county of residence or through the Department of Safety and Homeland Security.



Out of curiosity...How much business does a firearms trainer with no carry-permit get?
 
2013-01-11 06:26:24 PM
There continue to be an amazing number of comparatively high-profile people -- CEOs and such, especially -- who just don't get that it's almost impossible to back-peddle from public stupidity in an age of camera-equipped cell phones and YouTube.

It's pretty simple, really. Move to Somalia and start up your SWAT team. When you're going around with your guns and your Toyota trucks with guns welded to them, you simply take some donations from the local people in exchange for the benevolent protection of your SWAT team. If they don't want to buy protection from your SWAT team, well, that's fine, sometimes bad things happen, though.

It's a perfectly viable economic model.

Fart_Machine: trotsky: My point made. Morons like this make the sane, responsible gun owners look bad. Thanks, idiot.

The problem is these morons have the loudest voices. Check out the would-be revolutionaries in every gun thread.


I recall a thread here on Fark years and years ago, in which a proto-Fark Independent proclaimed that he was stockpiling a large arsenal of guns and ammo so that, in a post-apocalyptic scenario, he would be able to defend his neighbors. From what, I don't know. And I guess they were supposed to welcome his strong leadership and protection.

My reply was something like "If I were one of your neighbors in such a scenario, I'd be more worried about you killing me and taking my stuff." Oh boy did that make him mad. People who are that heavily armed shouldn't be that easy to tweak.

I'm not sure what the point of retelling that is, except to say that I think a lot of the loudest gun owners on the internet sure do seem like morons. And that's not very comforting.
