I'm not sure if any of you saw his last video. But he stated "If they take another inch,I will start shooting people" Well I guess the state of TN did not take lightly to that. http://m.wsmv.com/w/localnews/story/82457527
I was also told by TheYankeeMarshal, that "According to a friend, what he did could get his school closed down if the feds decide to step in." Which will land him in more hot water. What are your thoughts?

Freedom of speech is gone as well.

I'm sorry but threatening to kill people or telling someone I'm going to kill you is not covered under freedom of speech.

I really disagree with what he said but I do have to agree with jbardellini though.

BUT can what he said be considered as a threat to cause harm to another and can they charge him for that? If not then I think he should be protected by the 1st.

Again I still think he went to far.

It's a gray area typically from what I understand the threat would have needed to be directed toward an individual person or group. But than add the gun thing and a CCW and all ration goes out the window

He sort of did direct it towards particular people. When he said "if it goes one more inch, I'm gonna start killin people". To me, that is a direct threat to those taking it one inch further. Now we all know he is just a loud mouth and probably wouldn't go that far but he did zero good with the original video. And since he is a recognized "gun enthusiast" on YouTube, he has a greater responsibility than just a joe blow who put up a video.

Freedom of speech is a protected right however there is another right that should be applied...
You also have the right to remain silent... Anything you say can be used against you...
Yell fire in a crowded theater and see how that Freedom of Speech argument goes for you. Our moderators warn us about what can and should be said here and throw disclaimers in threads to protect themselves from liabilities. We all knew no good was going to come of that rant he put up in You Tube.
I believed every word he said and he seemed capable of performing those actions he outlined. As far as I'm concerned, I question his fitness to own and carry a weapon. Past performance in no way ensures future intent. Ever hear the phrase, "going insane", I think he's well on his way to that destination. If it acts like a nut and talks like a nut, it may just be a nut.

this moron looks the part

I had a FIL, for whom I had very much respect, once told me to never trust a man who grows hair on his face - this bozo has hair growing down and out rather than up and out.....

***! Your saying facial hair and terrorist in the same sentence? Maybe your not old enough to grow your whiskers... I have facial hair as do most of my military brothers.

Alrighty guys. Let's keep it civil.

Whether a person has facial hair or not is NOT an indicator of his character.

A lot of good men have facial hair and a lot of good men don't.

A lot of bad guys have facial hair and lot of bad guys don't.

Let's get back on topic please.

As for James Yeager. I understand his position and GUN CONTROL is a hot button right now. I also support our god given freedoms to own whatever firearm we choose. Its not up to the government to tell us what we can own or not own. We also have the right to free speech. Sometimes the lines get blurred and people say things they later regret. Who has not done that before? My opinions are not of the Glock Forum and are just that, my .02 cents worth. You draw your own line in the sand! We are acting like Americans when we stand firm on what this country was founded on and our beliefs. America is divided and its very clear that unless we unite we have some very dark days coming.

My clean-shaven grandaddy used to say never trust a man with his cap turned sideways...and that was back before people turned their caps sideways. Sort of prophetic, I guess. I think he even said it that one time he tried that gray beard for a spell.

Hahahaha! Good call! As for the Yeager incident, yeah we have freedom of speech, but he crossed a line. He may not be mentally insane, but he let his anger get the best of him. IMO, that's a terrible quality to have if you want to carry a firearm. I understand his background, and do not doubt his qualifications, licensing expired or not. I just kind of feel if you reach the point you are unable to control yourself in times of anger, maybe you should evaluate carrying a firearm.

He should have not added people. If he said he was going to start shooting, that would have good. As soon as he said shooting people, then it became a more serious statement. What an idiot. I have seen his type my whole life. He may be trained and have skills, but his loud mouth and antics show that he is an attention whore. The guy who says little, and attracts the least amount of attention to himself, is the one you don't really want to mess with. I think that this applies to any skill set, or training in life.
