Handgun Carry Permit Yanked After YouTube Ranting

James Yeager, 42, of Camden, had his handgun carry permit suspended after posting a video on YouTube where he allegedly claimed he would “start killing people” if President Barack Obama’s administration took executive action to pass gun control measures, according to a news release from the Tennessee Department of Safety and Homeland Security.
From the Jackson Sun:
In the video titled “Pack Your Bags,” Yeager starts by saying he received a news update that Vice President Joe Biden is asking the president to bypass Congress and use an executive order to ban assault rifles and force stricter gun control.
“I’m telling you if that happens, it’s going to spark a civil war and I’ll be glad to fire the first shot,” he said in the video.
There was no answer at various phone numbers listed in Yeager’s name. Yeager then tells his viewers to “make sure your rifle’s clean, pack a backpack with food in it and get ready to fight.”
A new video was uploaded to YouTube by Yeager on Thursday in response to his permit being suspended.
“I was mad when I said it and probably allowed my mouth to overrun my logic,” he said in the video about his previous threats. “But I don’t retract any of my statements. Now I have edited my video and took off the end where I said I’m going to start shooting people.”
