TOM RICK BROADCASTING LLC Country KHLB/MASON, TX is attracting a lot of attention for an ad the small station ran for a concealed handgun class.
"We will attempt to teach you all the necessary information you need to obtain your C.H.L.," the ad stated, reports KVUE-TV. Forty-five seconds in, the advertisement added a 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."
The ad continues, going on to say,"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 instructor's $175 advertisement bought six days worth of air time on MASON's hometown radio station KHLB," notes KVUE. "The ad stopped airing TUESDAY, but its message didn't stop there. The radio spot hit YOUTUBE and took off, getting 1,000 views the first day. It had 17,000 by day three."
The TEXAS Department of Public Safety released the following statement:
"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."
