CROCKETT KELLER: Controversial concealed handgun class radio ad refuses service to Muslims and Obama supporters
TEXAS Radio ad for a concealed handgun class at Keller’s Riverside Store in Mason tells listeners, “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 you cannot make a knowledgeable and prudent decision” “If you are a non-Christian Arab or Muslim, I will not teach you the class. I am Crockett Keller, thank you, and God bless America.”
KVUE Behind his store off Highway 87 two hours northwest of Austin, 65-year-old Crockett Keller teaches concealed carry courses to earn a few extra dollars. Courses that, he wants to make clear, are not for everyone. “I call it exercising my right to choose who I instruct in how to use a dangerous weapon,” said Keller.
On Thursday, Keller defended the ad. “I’m not going to do it, I will give up my license to teach before I will teach them.” The “them” Keller refers to are voters of President Obama or Muslims. “The fact is if you are a devout Muslim then you cannot be a true American,” said Keller. “Why should I arm these people to kill me, that’s suicide.”
It’s a stance Keller isn’t alone on. During this interview the instructor fielded nearly 40 calls congratulating him for the ad. But their sentiment isn’t shared by all. “Some people are really offended or agree with him; you don’t find too much of a middle ground,” she said. Dividing maybe, but Keller says only two negative responses have come his way. “I just will not teach these people,” said Keller.
