Texas Won’t Punish Anti-Muslim Handgun Instructor

Case closed.

The Texas Dept. of Public Safety will not revoke or suspend the license of a handgun instructor who ran a radio ad telling Muslims and non-Christian Arabs that he would not teach them how to handle a firearm.

The DPS statement said Crockett Keller affirmed that he would not refuse handgun instruction “to anyone based on national origin, race or religion.”

The state agency declined to provide any further comment.

Keller gained national attention for the ad that ran on a country music station about 100 miles west of Austin.

“I have no regrets,” he said. “I’m not a mean individual – not to say that occasionally I’ll get a little bit saucy or crude with my language.”

Nevertheless, he said he considers Muslims “our enemy” and he said they aren’t the only ones not welcomed at his handgun class.

“If you are a socialist liberal and/or voted for the current campaigner-in-chef, please do not take this class,” he says in the ad that went viral on YouTube. “You’ve already proven that you cannot make a knowledgeable and prudent decision as required under law.”

Crockett ended his ad with an attack on Muslims.

“Also, if you are a non-Christian Arab or Muslim, I will not teach you this class,” he says. “Once again, with no shame, I am Crockett Keller.”

The Texas Council on American-Islamic Relations said the state’s decision “sounded funny.”

Keller’s ad – calling it ugly rhetoric.

“I thought he meant it,” Texas CAIR executive director Mustafaa Carroll told Fox News. “There’s a lot of hateful rhetoric in the atmosphere in America these days.”

Carroll said American Muslims are good citizens, law abiding and educated.

“Most of the immigrants I know came here to escape oppression in their own lands and many of them have acclimated quite nicely,” he said.

He said many of the Muslims who contacted him just brushed off Keller’s statements.

“We hear so much of it,” he said. “People find it distasteful. When they hear things like that they just write it off to another crack pot.”

  1. Nor should they punish him. If it was WW2 no one would expect him to train Japanese people in the use of a handgun. Same difference. You don’t train a potential enemy how to kill you.

  2. Well I think the man looks like the Skipper (Alan Hale) from Gilligan’s Island, so its sort of hard to be too upset with him. I really enjoyed that show when I was a kid.

  3. I guess you fell asleep during some parts of american history class anon because I remember hearing what was done to japanese americans during ww2 we put them in camps where they were to be isolated because of fears of them not being loyal americans which is hilarious because japanese americans fought in for america in during that war http://www.the442.org/home.html,

  4. No WE didn’t, the ignorant elites at the time made that choice without OUR permission. BUT i can see where it could come in handy in future when dealing with people whose religion encourages them to lie to promote it.

  5. ah yes anonymous I can see how violating probably dozens of human rights wil be handy against terroism, oh wait it wont (and didnt I just go over the taqiyya/copout thing with you http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Iz1GeyWuC18)
