In January, I posted a video to Youtube in which I vehemently expressed my opposition to any effort to impose gun control that might circumvent Congress. Some of my comments were quite volatile, and I retracted those comments publicly a short time later. In the mean time, the Tennessee Department of Safety and Homeland Security issued a suspension of my handgun carry permit, claiming that I was a threat to the community. As allowed by law, I requested a hearing before a judge on the issue. On April 3, 2013 I appeared in General Sessions Court in Benton County with my attorney, Dana McLendon of Franklin and four witnesses. The Department of Safety and Homeland Security presented its case for their suspension of my permit, and my witnesses and I testified, too. The judge concluded that I was indeed not a threat to the safety of the community and reinstated my handgun carry permit. I am pleased with the result and I learned some valuable lessons along the way. - James Yeager
