The head of firearms training company who took to YouTube and Facebook this week to threaten a murderous response to any attempt on the Obama administration's part to "ban assault rifles and impose stricter gun control" has had his handgun carry permit suspended by the Tennessee Department of Safety and Homeland Security for presenting "material likelihood of risk of harm to the public."

James Yeager, CEO of Tactical Response, appeared in a video this Wednesday, in which he seemed pretty damn sincere about his intention to "start killing people" over gun control.

In its statement concerning the rescinding of Yeager's handgun permit, the Tennessee Department of Safety and Homeland Security said Yeager's comments "were irresponsible, dangerous, and deserved our immediate attention."

"The number one priority for our department is to ensure the public's safety," writes Commissioner Bill Gibbons.

2. Seems he left them no choice...

It may be his right to own a firearm, but it's a privilege to carry one concealed in public.

Personally, I think there may be grounds to revoke his civil right to own one as well, and if there's a line to step over, I'd like to know where it is.

According to the NRA doctrine, that people kill people, and they want the government to disarm threats to society to keep us safe, this guy should be the poster child. He should see a doctor instead of a gunsmith.

3. A mental eval wouldn't be out of the question.

As for a Concealed Carry pistol permit, nearly all states reserve the right to suspend it for threatening.
