A West Tennessee man can no longer legally carry a a handgun, after he made threatening posts on the internet site YouTube.
The Tennessee Department of Safety and Homeland Security announced Friday that they had suspended James Yeager’s handgun carry permit.
Yeager, 42, of Camden, posted videos claiming he would “start killing people” if the Obama administration took executive action to pass gun control measures.
Officials said the decision to suspend Yeager’s handgun carry permit was based on a “material likelihood of risk of harm to the public” (TCA 39-17-1352).
“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,” Commissioner Bill Gibbons said.
