Nice going dumbass.
If there's a booming Muslim population in rural central Texas this country is even more fucked than I thought.
I'm all for it. Between freedom of speech and the freedom to associate with whomever you want, I see no problem with it. I would be willing to be that if some idiot terrorist-wannabe joined the class and then pulled some stunt, they would absolutely want to know why the CCW instructor didn't turn him away. The line "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" is fucking gold!
Apparently you missed this part:
He would have been fine if he would have stopped with the Obama joke. Making a blanket denial over something that he is licensed to act in the government's interest for is stupid.
I don't see the problem. They have chl classes for women only. If the community does not like the way this man does business then he will not have customers.
We reserve the right to refuse service to anyone...
We need to change this.
And that's why the Civil Rights act of 1964 is bullshit.
And I'll bet the businesses offering those classes also offer regular classes in addition to those. I think the guy would have been fine even offering some sort Christian bible-study powwow type class, but to come out and flat out exclude certain people seems like it's in violation of the law.
Blame Republicans then. All I keep hearing lately is how they freed the slaves and were responsible for getting the CRA passed in the 60's.
Fine with me. As soon as the government stepped into making civil rights rules about private businesses, they were out of their jurisdiction. What is really bullshit is that the feds themselves have no problem discriminating against gays, but let a private business fire someone for being gay and see how fast they get sued.
This guy is engaged in a business that works with government agencies helping to secure constitutionally guaranteed rights to citizens. Might make it a little different. It also said he's in rural Texas, what if he's the only place within 100 miles to take the class?
He's an ignorant redneck that knew this would get him some free publicity and that all the other rednecks would travel from all over the state to shake his hand and take his class.
I'm with partycock on this. If this guy had half a brain he would just write something like: "Conditional upon personal interview" and screen the "undesirables" quietly. He's obviously just looking for some publicity.
I don't disagree that he is an ignorant redneck, and that he should be shunned by the community for refusing to do business with someone just because of their religion etc. This is why you shouldn't have to rely on either the government or other citizens before you can exercise your rights. If the government demands that you take classes and bullshit before you are allowed to exercise your rights, they should have to provide those classes. Don't make it contingent upon finding someone who is qualified and willing to teach the class. Yet another unintended consequence of government policies.
I think this would be far worse. How many well-meaning muslims or Obama voters may he have turned away for no reason without anyone knowing about it? Then what, those people just don't get to exercise their right to carry a weapon, just because some hillbilly says so? Now we know what an idiot this guy is and people can go find another person who is willing to give the class, and he can make all the money that Mr. Keller passed on.
So now you want to "nationalize" the entire gun safety industry? How positively socialist of you.
Plenty of people don't get to exercise their rights just because some assholes say so. Like residents of NYC, DC, Chicago...
How is this any different than a college or university giving preferential treatment to any one group over another ?
None. You think this guy would refuse taking money from socialists and terrorists?
A gun is worth something, the degree that most blacks and hispanics who get into college based on racial quotas isn't.
Haha, something like that...
Two things they should never be forgiven for.
It's legal and even encouraged to discriminate against white men.
Other than the religion nonsense (and it all is nonsense), this guy is absolutely correct. Dumbfucks that cannot be trusted to make a rational decision shouldn't be making a life or death decision.
Free Speech, Free Market, yadda yadda. The guy's customers will continue to be customers or not, and he'll attract new ones or he won't. Non-story.
There was some dipshit shot in the arm by a .50 BMG at a NASCAR event a couple years ago here. Some idiot fired up in the air fucking MILES away and the round arced into the parking lot of Texas Motor Speedway, through his RV, and through his hayseed arm.
