Firearms Training CEO, Who Threatened To ‘Start Killing People’ Over Gun Debate, Loses Gun Permit

Quote:
James Yeager, CEO of Tennessee-based Tactical Response, delivered a frightening rant last week on YouTube, declaring that gun owners “load your damn mags” and “get ready to fight,” because if gun violence prevention “goes one inch further, I’m going to start killing people.” His followup video was not any better: Yeager clarified he does not “condone anyone committing any kind of felonies, up to and including aggravated assaults and murders, unless it’s necessary. Right now, it’s not necessary.” There was no retraction.

As a result, Yeager has had his handgun permit suspended because of “material likelihood of risk of harm to the public.” Tennessee Department of Saftey and Homeland Security Commissioner Bill Gibbons said, “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.”

Not half as psychotic looking as others. And not anywhere near as dangerous, regardless of how many people he didn't kill. lolcivilliberties.

The citizen-warrior defence-against-tyranny stuff goes back to the Florentine republic and Machiavelli, a man who was born in the 15th century. We've moved on just a wee bit since then. Well, some of us have.

In the modern world, corruption and tyranny do not stem from the old aristocracies and monarchies (and OK there was a time when the Man could be challenged by an armed and independent citizenry). The imbalance we have to deal with comes from corporate power and vast private wealth - what you could loosely call the 1% - who have a stranglehold on the political system through lobbying and campaign finance. These are your new feudal overlords.

Indeed, the NRA, an association which represents the gun industry, is itself engaged in this process. It is an organisation with a profoundly corrupt and undemocratic political influence which funds its position by selling a false dream of freedom to the delusional.

That's prize-winning self-satire, even for the right. A perpetual motion machine of greed, fear and ignorance.

To compliment this to show the extent that the big corporations as well as the NRA influence the government:

"we do not need new gun control law! we have plenty of laws, they just need to be enforced" is the NRA stance against further gun control laws, yet this view suddently becomes a lot less valid when the same faction pushing that argument is also undermining its application

Yeah, because there is no evidence of a government going tyrannical and killing it's own citizens.

According to you, the overthrow of Egypt and Libya, along with the current situation in Syria never happened, because in today's world the citizenry are powerless against The Man. Self determination is a thing of the past, we are just obedient drones for the society.

Dumbass!

If you think the US is like Egypt, Libya and Syria maybe I should buy you a map because you must be living on the wrong continent. The US is a mature democracy. You can vote for anybody you like.

Actually we've been jacking Romans (and vice versa) waaaay before that. Cos Romans had this fancy model of stomping into your country, snatching healthy people into slavery, and creating fragmentation by offering promises of trade and riches to influential tribal leaders, under the condition that they promote positive attitude to Romans. Couple of people would get rich, those tribes who resisted were fought and captured into slavery, and those who didn't would live under Roman boot, wear roman clothing, start praying to roman gods, etc etc. All the while thinking they gained trade, security and culture, while losing their lands and sovereignity. Many speeches were made how tribunes and emperors were great and all that (like Obamas nobel prize), and how it's all progress. There were good sides, and bad sides, but there was always this conflict between the new romanized culture, and the culture of the old, and after a while, people start realizing that they were better off without aquaduct, but with horse and freedom to do what they please.

There is nothing new or "modern" in what you are saying, it's the same old same old. The items of trade are just slightly different, you give up freedom for some new thing you never knew you needed.

Read up on Vercingetorix, and I don't mean in Asterix comics. :lol:

Nobody has actually lost out here. The anarchist hasn't lost his gun only his permit to actually possess one. This he can appeal apparently, all the while still actually being able to hold, caress his gun and maybe shoot process servers (albeit, as far as the tyrannical government is concerned, illegally). He would get arrested for carrying it in the street, I am sure, since his permit was suspended, but he could probably get a few shots off. He can use the time meanwhile to trim his beard into an even more ridiculous shape, polish his noggin and post more compensatory ranting on the interwebs.

Shitting? What? I don't think that's going to happen. Unless the only gun he has left after the revolution is a gun that causes you to shit your pants.
anarchist: a person who promotes disorder or excites revolt against any established rule, law, or custom.
He says IF the government legislate to outlaw any of his weapons THEN he will kill people. Anarchist.

Not the most helpful tool in the pro-gun arsenal, one would think.

A lot of people have had enough of unnecessary gun deaths and are fed up being threatened by bullies like Yeager whenever they try to discuss a saner gun policy.

You know how to deal with bullies? You scare the shit out of them then they go away.

please explain to me how gun ownership helped to protect the rights of japanese american when they were carted away.

The revolutions in Eastern Europe on the other hand worked pretty well - without guns.

Looks like history has spoken.

It's a deterrent. If the public is armed, the authoritarians have another factor to consider before they try anything.

how do you expect to scare someone who doesn't obey the law so they have guns, when law abiding people don't have guns?

wow. the racist is a revisionist too. it's well documented that blacks fought off the KKK with guns when racist cops refused to protect us.

also, http://imgur.com/9HV71tQ

guns don't care what color my skin is. to the best of the bearer's ability, a firearm will protect its bearer regardless of our skin color, religion, sexual orientation, or gender. does true equality really offend you that much? does it really burn you that a black man could hold as much power as you?
