In a controversial new radio ad playing in Mason, TX, Crockett Keller, a state-certified gun safety instructor, says: "If you are a non-Christian Arab or Muslim, I will not teach you the class with no shame (sic). 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 required under the law."
In an interview with a local ABC affiliate (video below), Keller stood by his ad: “I will give up my license to teach before I will teach them. I consider all Muslims our enemies, no matter how nice they are. I could not trust one and I, as an instructor, am not going to teach one how to shoot a gun and aid him in getting a license.”
The Texas Department of Public Safety, which certifies individuals to teach concealed handgun lessons, said discrimination puts instructors’ certification at risk of “suspension or revocation,” but that they need a formal complaint before they can act.
