Gun crazy

Honest, I don't want to keep writing about gun nuts but this guy is clearly a menace to society. The good news is, James Yeager lost his state permit.
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".
The bad news is, that's not nearly enough. All this does is prevent him from legally carrying a loaded gun into his local Waffle House. It doesn't take away his mighty arsenal of weapons, all of which are stored -- fully loaded -- in some warehouse on his property. I mean he's got rocket launchers on hand.

And now having seen this video of Yeager doing an interview with a local TV station where he vainly attempts to mitigate the blowback from the video that went viral, I'm convinced the guy is the most dangerous kind of grifter of all. A batshit crazy mid-level grifter who actually believes in his own whacked out conspiracy theories. Also, having just reviewed Steve M.'s research on Yeager, he clearly has a messiah complex and a serious anger management problem.

The promo video Steve put up from Yeager's training camp is mindblowing. He threatens to shoot his kid's friends in the face (if necessary) and describes his inner circle as a frat house with machine guns. Even his supporters describe him as an asshole. Oh, and a giant bottle of bourbon is one of his important supplies in the field, in case he gets stuck behind enemy lines. Or something.

Yeager is the poster boy for people who shouldn't have guns at all. If this guy cracks, not having a permit isn't going to stop him from an all out massacre of his perceived adversaries. The state needs to shut down that training camp and take away all his weapons in the interests of public safety. But he's a white guy in the south, so not holding my breath.
