NASHVILLE, Tenn.- Tennessee Department of Safety and Homeland Security has suspended the handgun carry permit of a local man who threatened to “start killing people” to protect his Second Amendment right.
In a statement released Friday officials said they had suspended the handgun carry permit of James Yeager, CEO of Tactical Response based on “material likelihood of risk of harm to the public”.
On Thursday, a video of Yeager angrily claiming he would “start killing people” if President Barack Obama moved forward with gun control measures began to go viral on the internet.
“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. He will receive an official notification of his suspension through the mail,” Commissioner Bill Gibbons said.
Again, I think it was a smart move; I think he should meet with Law Enforcement and show that he is not some sort of loon and then get his permit back.
Now another thing that I feel the need to bring up, being that I am a white person and all. Is that the fact that one blogger out there; is accusing James Yeager of getting a slap on the wrist for being white. I have one question, you race-baiting twit —- are you serious? You got your black progressive President; what the hell else do you really want, white people in chains? That is what your feckless leader screwy Louie Farrakhan would want! You sound just like him too. I though that the election of Barack Obama was going to end the all of this racial-based politics? I guess not.
That right up there, is why I am not a huge fan of the Democratic Party; no, not because I hate black people. But because of the stupid racial based politics, and the identity politics that goes on in that party, all the time. Way I see it, that stuff happened over 300 years ago and Abe Lincoln ended slavery and in 1964, blacks were liberated everywhere. So, the way I see it, they need to get over it and move on and quite acting we white people are still putting them in chains.
Now, to be fair; that same stuff goes on in the Republican Party. It goes on with the Jews. I mean, that stuff happened 70 years ago, and yet, we still have people make a cottage industry over it and White Anglo-Saxon protestants, like myself, are still being prosecuted, because we will not kiss the ass of the neoconservative right in this Country. (See Ron Paul and Pat Buchanan) and some people, who dare to speak the truth are losing their jobs. (See Rich Sanchez)
It is sick, it needs to stop and we need to move on as a Country. But, as long as there are people getting rich on this sort of thing; it will continue. It is tragic, but it is, what it is.
