State Suspends Handgun Carry Permit Of Tactical Response CEO

The state of Tennessee has suspended the handgun carry permit of James Yeager, CEO of Tactical Response, who recently said he would “start killing people” should President Obama take executive action on gun control.

State officials explained they revoked the permit because of Yeager’s “material likelihood of risk of harm to the public,” according to a local TV station. Tactical Response is a Tennessee-based company that specializes in firearms and tactical training.

“The number one priority for our department is to ensure the public’s safety,” wrote Commissioner Bill Gibbons. “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.”

Yeager released a second video Thursday in which he refused to back down from most his statements.

    I have taken courses from Tactical Response, stayed at James’s house in the “Team room,” been driven to dinner with him and his instructors/friends, and had one on one conversations with him. He is a good man and a patriot, and whoever says otherwise has never met him. The video was heated, yes. James has an ego and is outspoken, yes. But who cares? He said the same thing that most gun owners are thinking right now on camera because none of you are man enough to admit it. Is he the best firearms trainer in the world? No, because that title belongs to no one. His classes are amazing. HRCC is a hard course for anyone, INCLUDING SEALs. What TN did to him is complete bullshit.
