So, how closely related is he to the judge?

"A judge in Benton County ruled on April 3 that the suspension of James Yeager's handgun carry permit was not supported by the evidence against him. "

If threatening to kill people with guns isn't enough to get a gun permit revoked, then what would it take?
 
2013-04-09 05:52:34 PM  
Yes, it's really asinine that we have due process in this country.
 
2013-04-09 05:53:00 PM  
I'm shocked and stunned!
 
2013-04-09 05:53:08 PM  
Seems reasonable.  In the heat of the moment he directed people to load their mags, make sure their rifle is clean and even to pack some food.

I wasn't aware the take-backsies was a legitimate legal ploy.
 
2013-04-09 05:53:14 PM  
Yes... my home state.  A veritable paradise where a toddler can shoot a woman, I can buy a pistol (or any firearm really) with no registration/backround check/oversight if I purchase through a private sale, and a paranoid schizophrenic can get his arsenal back.

He has no business touching firearms anymore.

wait wait wait... this Patriotic Defender of our 2nd amendment God granted right was just a loud mouth, hot air blowing, rabble rousing piece of shiat who changed his song once the "Government" started asking questions?

When you post videos online saying something, I'd like to know how much more due process you need?

Keep in mind, this is coming from a gun owner. This douchebag needs to have some consequences to go along with his actions, it's people like him who ruin things for the rest of us...

James Yeager is proof that most vocal gun-nutters are completely full of shiat. The "molon labe" douchebags will be the first to piss their pants when 0bama's brownshirt come to collect their guns.

TFA: Based in Camden, Tenn., Yeager's company, Tactical Response, offers courses in pistol, rifle, and shotgun shooting, including a two-day handgun course taught by him.

Someone answer this for me.  What is it with gun nuts and the word "tactical"?

"Tactics" is a concept that would seem to apply to confrontations with any type of weapon, or for that matter, hand-to-hand, and even more broadly to any type of sport or competition and many types of games.  What does this concept especially have to do with high-powered semi-automatic firearms?

Is there some subtext or special meaning that I am missing?

In tn? I'd guess no closer than double first cousins. This isn't Montana, after all, so it won't be a brothernephew.

So, does this mean anger can be used as defence for just about anything?
 
2013-04-09 06:06:43 PM  
Well as long as he promises to never be angry again, I think we're all set. What's the problem, libbos?

Police chief of a town of 538.  That qualifies him to be President of Alaska.

Pretty sure the guy who killed my mother was "angry" that night. Lucky he didn't get off based on that.
 
2013-04-09 06:09:29 PM  
So, if he goes out and starts shooting people, will the judge be imprisoned, as well?
 
2013-04-09 06:09:42 PM  
"I need all you patriots to start thinking about what you're going to do, load your damn mags, make sure your rifle's clean, pack a backpack with some food in it, and get ready to fight," Yeager said in the original Jan. 9 video, now archived on the website of the Southern Poverty Law Center. "If it goes one inch further, I'm going to start killing people."

So there is a video of this. That's evidence, right?

A judge in Benton County ruled on April 3 that the suspension of James Yeager's handgun carry permit was not supported by the evidence against him.

You're right.if he did something different than what he did, he'd be in trouble.

I don't understand how FarkLaw was wrong on this case.

The kind of "due process" that's being advocated by gun control advocates is confiscation, finger-printing, months-long waiting periods/background checks, and increasing fees, ammo purchase limits, punitive licensing requirements, etc.

It's only a minority of gun owners who are paranoid, racist and ignorant and who yearn for a coming day in which they will be using their high-powered tools to blow away evil-doers in a dystopian America.

Kinda like the minority of bad cops who give the others a bad name.

A person who would reasonably consider the threat credible and aimed at a specific group or individual.

Absolutely.

You should devote your time to arguing against that imaginary point and the adults can try to figure out how best to get less people killed.

Three questions. First, how many people are advocating confiscation? Seriously. I haven't heard anyone actually mention confiscation, though I imagine some may have. However, it doesn't seem like any large political force is seriously considering that option or else that would be a pretty consistent media story. And pace Rumsfeld, absence of evidence (i.e. lack of media coverage in its entirety) IS a form of evidence of absence. Second is what, pray tell, is so inherently wrong with finger-printing, waiting periods that are still quicker than between a learner's permit and a driver's license, and background checks? And third, what exactly are punitive licensing requirements (as a concept) and what specific ones are being seriously proposed and considered by legislative bodies?

Tigger: You should devote your time to arguing against that imaginary point and the adults can try to figure out how best to get less people killed.


CT's new "reasonable" gun control package includes mandatory gun registration and the fingerprinting of people who want to buy ammunition.  The NY SAFE Act allows the police to seize your guns without a warrant if they suspect you are mentally ill.  Before the NY SAFE Act, people who have the audacity to want to own handguns (a constitutional right, mind you) had to pay a non-refundable $100 application fee and wait six months for a judge's arbitrary decision on whether or not you should be allowed to exercise the constitutional right of handgun ownership.
 
2013-04-09 06:22:44 PM  
Because if we were to start disallowing all the total morons from having their guns, the arms manufacturers would likely be put out of business.
