James-Yeager-Angel-Approved

According to a Nashville, Tennessee news station:

A general sessions judge in Benton County ruled last week that the state didn’t have enough evidence to suspend James Yeager’s carry permit.

Oh the LOLz.  Not enough evidence?  The man stated “I am going to start killing people” on video, and then put it on the internet where it went viral and showed up on every major news station.  If he gets his carry permit back I am officially donning my tinfoil hat.  Oh because he half-ass “apologized” he can get it back?  Please.  If you ask me that’s setting a dangerous precedent.  Since when does an apology wash away things like that?  Initially there was speculation that Yeager probably didn’t give a shit about his “permit” being suspended anyway because as a former LEO he was apparently still authorized everywhere under LEOSA (Law Enforcement Officers Safety Act)… can’t confirm this though.

It will be interesting to see whether or not the state appeals the judges ruling.

Speaking of Yeager, he’s really running out of ideas for his vids.  First there were a bunch of Derp Jacket Firearms ones (Neva Been Done Befo’ shit for real), and now there are some useless rants about gay rights and drugs etc… Hardly as cutting edge and abrasive as he used to be.  Maybe now that’s he’s a grandpa he’s trying to settle down?  I’m still waiting for the video of when he’s supposedly going to take his baby grandson shooting and let his little finger pull the trigger.  That should raise a sufficient shit storm (I hope).

God I missed the post picture.  I used to crack up at it every time I used it, which pretty much ended up being daily when Yeager was at his bat-shit-crazy peak.

Thoughts?

Hunt Brothers Pizza out of Nashville, TN gives you this with pizza takeout or delivery:

Genius promo.  Ironically environmental too, considering it will get 2 uses… holding the pizza and then getting shot at.  The environmental aspect kind of takes a turn for the worse when you realize you’ll be pumping lead into it… but at least it saved a portion of a tree you would have killed if you didn’t have a free target to shoot on your empty pizza box.

Make sure to lick your fingers off before you shoot.  Cleaning dried tomato sauce out of a match trigger is a pain in the ass I hear. *shifty eyes*

I like a company that isn’t afraid to do things like hunting promotions, and even put a religious saying on the box knowing that either one could lose them a few customers.  They have their values, and they stick to them.

A night on the job for two gas station workers became violent when two men walked in, guns in hand. A wild shootout unfolded on camera, inside the very close quarters of the Lewis Street Market in Nashville, Tennessee.

Full story – HERE

Wow, I’m surprised he never got shot when he tried to initially grab the guys gun.  That was ballsy.

Iraqi Army veteran hey? Yea.. from what i’ve seen on youtube, and heard from people that looks about right.

A Johnson City, TN woman couldn’t get her gun to shoot, so she handed it off to a man to cock it for her and then proceeded to fire the weapon several times near multiple victims this weekend, according to a police report.

No injuries were reported in the incident that happened around 9:25 p.m Saturday near 304 Royal Circle. According to a Johnson City Police Department report on the shooting, a woman near this location was in an argument with an unnamed person regarding the recent break-in of her vehicle.

According to the JCPD report, the victims all lived near each other on Royal Circle. Their names and ages are listed below:

Lissie C. Thomas, 31; Nathaniel J. Salter, 31; Paulinene M. Garcia, 25; Dee A. Garcia, 45; Daniel M. Hardy, 22; and Rafael Castillo Castillo-Hernandez, 15.

I wouldn’t call those 6 people “victims” since no damage was actually done.

I wonder what these two will be charged with? Attempted murder for her?  What for him,  Some sort of accessory charge?

He’s going to be regretting that one for a while, considering all he apparently did was cock the gun.

After reading Josh’s comment in the previous Leonard Embody related post here on my blog, I was browsing through the list of crazy laws he linked to, and came up with the following in Google Maps:

With his weapon carry permit revoked, Leonard Embody (kwikrnu) is now setting out on a road trip around the U.S.A. to challenge other obscure laws in hopes of being arrested and getting rich off a wrongful arrest lawsuit settlement. (Click to view map)

I picked out on the most obscure items that were apparently legal, just to prove the point.

I posted about Leonard Embody (kwikrnu as he is known on various internet forums) and his AK-47 pistol open carry incident and the subsequent court complaint filed by him for the violation of his 4th Amendment rights etc..

Originally I was unaware of all his past shenanigans, so my article when I first reported on the AK-47 incident back in December of 2009 I was very sympathetic.  Months later, after reading more and more about him, my opinion did a 180.

If you are unfamiliar with Leonard, Linoge from WallsOfTheCity has a comprehensive outline of all Leonard’s escapades, with links to the relevant forum posts and news stories – HERE

One of the most recent incidents (January 23, 2010) was when he open carried (in hand) a Navy Model 1851 black powder pistol in Belle Meade, TN in order to challenge the following laws:

TCA 39-17-1314 City laws regulating guns preempt state laws if they were made before April 8, 1986. (TN State Law)

Title 11 Chapter 6 section 602 specifically states the carry of an army or navy model pistol is an exception, and it must be carried openly in the hand not in a holster. (Belle Meade Ordinances)

The result?  He caused a bit of a stir and recently ended up getting his carry permit revoked I think he got off easy, considering his 1851 is a replica, and not the real thing.

Unfortunately, it looks like all of his shit disturbing may finally yield something…

In an article in today’s Nashville CityPaper, the mayor Gray Thornburg said the following:

Embody found a loophole in the law that allowed him to carry the military-style weapon, and the city is amending the law to take off the out of date exemption. We’re deleting that particular part which is very, very old. Historically, everybody had that in there.

According to the CityPaper article, the deletion of the law will go before the commission today Wednesday (today?) on a second and final reading, where it will either be approved or deferred.

I had to chuckle when I read the “military-style” part of the mayor’s comment, considering this is what the gun looks like:
