If he were so confident that what he did was sane and within his rights as an American then he shouldn't have listened to his attorney and left the original video up just as it was. I cannot imagine that the 1st amendment was written to protect over the top people from literally posting a threatening video stating they will kill ANYONE given any circumstance PERIOD.
You can't? Really? If JW broke a law, why has he not been arrested?
No one here endoeses JW's rant but we still live in a Nation of Laws...not Men. Revocation of a CCW requires a criminal conviction...period.
Yet many of our resident liberals are perfectly fine with a fellow gun owners having there 2A rights violated due to there use of 1A rights.
When exactly did we empower State and Federal LEO's to act as "speech police".
Threatening speech does not rise to the level of "criminal" unless it's credible and directed at a specific target that the suspect could reach...and even then, it would be a near impossible crime to convict.
JY made no specific threat and if Law Enforcement thinks anything he did or said was criminal, they need to seek a conviction and use that conviction to revoke his permit "legally".
But hey, why make them work to violate 2A liberties...why not lower the bar and accept there "unilateral" actions?
The cowardice is trully painful.
