KLTV reports that a lawful permanent resident from South Korea has been sentenced to federal prison for breaking federal law.
Heon Jong Yoo, better known as Hank Yoo, was found guilty on November 15 of seven counts of false statements made regarding firearms transactions and one count of unlawful possession of a firearm by a prohibited person. The man, who is 25 yeas of age, was sentenced to 97 months in prison.
United States Attorney Joseph D. Brown claimed that “Law enforcement most likely saved lives with the arrest of Hank Yoo.”
The Attorney stated that Yoo had a troubling track record of mental health issues.
At multiple schools where he had attended, administrators had worried about his increasing threatening behavior. And when you mix in his history of mental issues and that he was lying to get access to firearms, the situation could have ended badly.
ATF Special Agent Jeffrey C. Boshek II stated that “Questions on the ATF Form 4473 are designed to identify prohibitors such as felony offenses, adjudicated mental illness, or substance abuse.”
The ATF agent added:
Yoo lied on the form, then compounded the lies by misusing the benefit afforded by a Texas Concealed Handgun License. His overall, evolving pattern of conduct sounded alarms at institutions and communities throughout Texas.
A federal grand jury indicted Yoo on April 18, 2018.
A press release from Brown’s office detailed that Yoo was an undergraduate student at UT-Tyler and a lawful permanent resident from South Korea. Yoo falsely represented himself as a U.S. citizen during seven separate firearms transactions according to a report. Several of these transactions dealt with semi-automatic weapons. Federal law dictates that both American citizens and permanent residents can legally purchase firearms.
Yoo was involved in other cases of false misrepresentation when he was involuntarily committed to a mental institution in New Jersey in 2013 and 2015.
Florida Senator Moving to Designate “Donald J. Trump Highway” in Honor of 45th President
One of the greatest presidents in American history.
Florida State Senator Anthony Sabatini will move to rename a highway in the state “Donald J. Trump Highway,” in honor of the 45th President.
Sabatini made the announcement in a tweet on Tuesday. US 27 ultimately travels from Miami, Florida, to Fort Wayne, Indiana, traversing the United States from south to north. The segment located in Florida would be renamed after Trump in Sabatini’s proposal.
This legislative session I will be sponsoring an amendment to rename U.S. Highway 27 as the “President Donald J. Trump Highway.” Looking forward to working on this important designation honoring one of the greatest Presidents in American History. pic.twitter.com/x2gNzv8pxv

Public infrastructure is increasingly named after Presidents while they’re in office or shortly after their departure. Several schools and highways have been named after former President Barack Obama less than five years after his departure from office. Every President in recent American history has received a highway named in his honor, usually after leaving office.
Republicans have strong majorities in both of the Florida House of Representatives and Senate, ensuring a strong chance that Sabatini’s highway proposal will ultimately succeed and become law.
President Trump is the first President in history from Florida, having changed his state of residency from New York to the southern state during his term in office. The President is slated to begin his post-presidency life by returning to the state on Wednesday, where it’s expected that he’ll reside at his Mar-a-Lago resort in Palm Beach.
