      ATF licenses some activities such as explosives and gun dealer licenses while states license other activities such as CWP or gun instructor etc

      ..is Tennessee taking away his handgun carry permit.

      There's probably a "for the time being" involved. Weak tea.

      •  Anthony: From TN Dept Safety & Homeland Security (3+ / 0-)

        Full statement from the Tennessee Department of Safety and Homeland Security below:

        NASHVILLE --- The Tennessee Department of Safety and Homeland Security announced today the suspension of James Yeager’s handgun carry permit after he was featured in a threatening YouTube video post that went viral earlier this week.

        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).

        Yeager, 42, of Camden, Tenn., allegedly claimed he would “start killing people” if the Obama administration took executive action to pass gun control measures.

        “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, and he will receive an official notification of his suspension through the mail,” Commissioner Bill Gibbons said.

        Mr. Yeager is also the CEO of Tactical Response, a firearms and tactical training school in Camden. He is not a Department of Safety and Homeland Security certified instructor, nor is his school department certified.

        Mr. Yeager has the right to seek review of the department’s decision in the general sessions court of his county of residence or through the Department of Safety and Homeland Security.

        So, Yeager is not a certified instructor

        Yeager's so-called school is not certified either.

        Notice: He is not a Department of Safety and Homeland Security certified instructor, nor is his school department certified.

          ..actually even offers "certification."

          Yeager's a delusional nut-wad who probably has nightmares about black-helicopters, and does think  gun "rights" are to keep the federal government in check and who recommends every man over 35 take testosterone and obviously a time-bomb waiting to go off.

          Neither he nor Wayne LaPierre should have access to a firearm, in my book anyway.
          Or any other insane people for that matter.

          •  Oh, you can get DHS certification, and FEMA (0+ / 0-)

            I have several times passed FEMA qualifications  -- for CERT purposes.

            Haven't ever even thought about pursuing quals to instruct with firearms. I don't think that's DHS -- I think it's ATF.
