This just in... The Government watches for videos like this and when they see them they'll come a knockin'.

This guy just needs to go back to getting beat up daily in the world of wannabe underground MMA fighting.

Yeager clarified he does not "condone anyone committing any kind of felonies, up to and including aggravated assaults and murders, unless it's necessary

This guy is exactly why you should need a license to own a gun of any sort.

Handgun permit?  I'm surprised Tennessee has one.  Or is it a concealed-carry permit?

And now he can cry that he's been unfairly targeted by the Feds because "he's on to them."  Pretty quick turnaround on this particular self-fulfilling prophecy.

To be fair that was a bland statement that is usually unsaid because it's obvious. "Don't kill anyone unless it's necessary", which is why the article mentioned that it wasn't really a retraction or apology. The only thing that matters is the definition of what is "necessary". Also this means the government are taking it that one step further he warned would be the breaking point for him. So let's see if he backs up his threats.

His "apology" even consisted of a comment that he doesn't disbelieve anything he said earlier, either.

He didn't say "kill" he said "murders", "aggravated assaults" and "felonies".

This guy is nothing but a loser and a poser who got three people killed in Iraq when he was playing Green Beret for some private security firm.  He lives in fantasy land.  He is not representative of gun owners, but of guys who truly don't deserve the right to own a weapon of any kind.  He is dilusional at best and likely a ticking time bomb.

I hate the fact that my rights are going to be violated because this idiot has access to the internet to spread his bullshiat.  Most gun owners are not like this.  Most gun owners will agree that he belongs far away from anything that he could use to hurt others.  He fits the profile of the kind of asshole that trolls around looking for someone to shoot (Zimmerman anyone?).

I can only hope Darwin helps him get to his destination very soon.

Proof positive that we need to do more background checks for gun permits, gun purchases, and CCP/Ws.

I have a CCW, I have a hand gun; I got them because my personal safety was being threatened. Yet I am a responsible gun owner, trained, continuous practice, never been in any sort of trouble.
I only have it because of one person, I don't think I would ever pull it out on anyone but that one person.

No True Scotsman logical fallacy.

He is at least representative of himself as a gun owner, and it is very likely that he is not a statistical aberration and that there are others like him.
 
2013-01-15 12:22:53 PM
Mr. Yeager is not very well respected in the firearms community. Mostly, because he's a jackass and a fool. His "training" was mostly ridiculous and didn't follow basic safety procedures.

So no, he was not representative of gun owners.

I'm not sure what you mean when you say your rights are going to be violated. What rights? Specifically what criteria would you use to separate your right from his rights?

It's called life. These things happen. I consider myself to live a pretty tame lifestyle, but I have had someone pull a knife on me before...like a big ass bowie knife. Nice to have a CCW on you on times like that.

That licence should require renewal like a drivers license and should include a mental health evaluation.

If he's mentally ill, he is, by definition, not responsible with anything... most of all, firearms.

Roll forward to 2017:  Supreme Court rules that his right to free speech was infringed--the logic is that super-patriots are super-persons, and taking away his gun permit had a "chilling effect" on his ability to protect super-Murica with his super-patriot powers--and so he then sues for several million dollars in damages.

Strange, just last night I was looking around YouTube for videos about a gun I'm thinking about buying (Glock 22 Gen4) and on the side was a video named something like myths about a gunfight. I clicked on it and it was this guy. He actually had some good info and gave it in a pretty straight forward way. But, he did seem like a true "gun nut". He's one of those "keep every mag charged at all times and a gun not more than 2 feet away at all times" guy.

also an illegal gun owner and irresponsible because he failed to surrender his firearms when he was diagnosed with a serious mental condition. Responsible gun owners recognize their own mental state when it temporarily degrades due to emotional stress, loss of a loved one, etc and take steps to secure or remove their firearms from the house until they are clear minded. My wife experienced post partum depression after our first child. During that time I removed all the firearms from the house to a family members safe and even hid the sharp knives for a week until the Doctor got her stabilized on anti-depressants. Life is full of stress, and recognizing when to remove your firearms is no different than knowing when its time to take away grandmas car keys. 

Only an idiot would think that universal violation of the rights of 300 million Americans is justified by a crime statistic which results in fewer than 400 deaths a year, no matter how heinous. We are either a self regulating and responsible citizenry or we arent. If you dont think the former is worth the effort then you may as well hand in your car keys now and stand in line for an Obama Phone and an EBT card.

Wellon Dowd: What about this poor man's First Amendment rights?


He stepped over the line.

On the other hand, that's what happens when you have 300 million of something (guns) in a country and nobody knows anything about them. People say stupid things in regards to how they should be regulated (see New York state's bill that is sure to be passed). Guys like this get ticked, and say even stupider things regarding the legislative action being proposed.

We won't do anything to fix this, though, so... sit back with your drink of choice and enjoy the stupidity.

But the difficulty is, there is no legal difference between you and him (well, until he opened his big mouth). The bar set by the law is so low that nearly everybody can jump over it with no problem. The law can't tell the difference between somebody who's responsible or irresponsible. There exists no solid metric for that, psych evaluation or not.

Being a responsible gun owner is great and all, but it's impossible to make that a criterion for ownership- the implementation of such a thing is highly subjective.
The mom of the Sandy Hook shooter would definitely be called an irresponsible gun owner given what we know now, but a priori there is nothing that could have separated her as such without blatantly violating the medical confidentiality of her family.
