Deep in the heart of the Texas Hill Country in Mason, Texas concealed handgun license instructor Crockett Keller is in hot water over his recent radio ad promoting his CHL course.
The 45 second radio ad that played in the greater Mason County area said Crockett will “attempt to teach you all the necessary information you need to obtain your C.H.L..” At the end of the ad Crockett added in this disclaimer,
“If you are a socialist liberal and or voted for the current campaigner in chief, please do not take this class. You have already proven that you cannot make a knowledgeable and prudent decision as under the law. If you are a non-Christian Arab or Muslim, I will not teach you the class with no shame; I am Crockett Keller, thank you and God bless America.”
The Texas Department of Public Safety had this to say about Crockett’s ad,
“The Texas Department of Public Safety certifies individuals to teach coursework and provide training required to be taken by individuals seeking to qualify for a Texas concealed handgun license. Certified instructors are required to comply with all applicable state and federal statutes. Conduct by an instructor that denied service to individuals on the basis of race, ethnicity or religion would place that instructor’s certification by the Department at risk of suspension or revocation. The Department became aware of the statements in question yesterday and has begun an investigation into the matter. The Department will take appropriate administrative action based on the findings from the investigation.”
