This is James Yeager, CEO of Tennessee weapons company Tactical Response. On Wednesday, he posted a YouTube rant about reports Obama would bypass Congress with gun control policy. After it went viral, he replaced it with an edited version.
UPDATE: The Tennessee Department of Safety and Homeland Security has suspended Yeager’s handgun carry permit, according to Commissioner Bill Gibbons:
“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.”
