    Wrong maybe. But Texas is pretty much its own nation anyway, so laws tend not to apply. Also hilarious haha.

    Damn right! As a proud Texan, I approve this of this message. Not only does he have the right to refuse service to anyone but he is exercising that right. It doesn`t matter what his opinion is, (for those who may disagree with me) because everybody`s got one, but the real reason why I like this post so much is the reason it was posted...as if what this guy is saying may actually be wrong. Of course some douche is going to disagree, but that is their right as well. As if he is not entitled to do such a thing. Pshhh!

    Though I agree with his right to not sell his goods to anyone whom he has qualms against, I disagree with the qualms he has against the people he`s not selling his goods too.

    He wouldn`t teach me because I`m agnostic but in full support of the 2nd amendment?

    There are a good amount of people who vote democrat but support the 2nd amendment and there are a good amount of people who vote republican that aren`t religious.
    But it`s his business, he`s allowed to run it the way he sees fit.

    I guess it all depends on if he`s violating a law or not. If he`s not, then yes it`s his right. If he is, then it`s not his right to violate the law. Simple as that. Ethically speaking? IMO if it`s his class then it`s his perogative.

    What a stupid racist hick. He actually thinks, like some commenters here, that he has the right to deny service based on political or ethnic backgrounds.


    "It`s his business, he`s allowed to run it the way he sees fit"

    Discrimination is illegal lmao. What do they teach in schools these days?

    @Altaru, remember how Perry was talking up secession big time before his entrance into the 2012 race? Well I say we let Yosemite Sam secede then, Texas would immediately become a third world country (not to mention a right wing holy land of sorts) and we could rename it something more appropriate, like Dumbphuckistan. ;-)

    Plus this sort of thing is so Illegal, title 2 of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 prevents discrimination in public accommodations, he will have his butt handed to him in court.

    And how exactly is he going to weed out Liberals anyway? Look for the people wearing Birkenstocks and driving hybrids? Or for another thorny point, does he realize not all Muslims are dark skinned and wear turbans?

    So much stupid crammed onto one human frame, the mind boggles...

    @QueenZira: How is his store considered a "public accommodation"? It`s a privately owned business. The thing that most people do not understand is that laws were put in place to keep government from meddling in peoples business, and to allow people to do things like this, and to allow people like you to disagree with him. Freedom of speech. Check out the Constitution sometime.

    He forgot "homos". But I guess he figures those are lumped in with liberals.
    He didn`t have to say "no blacks/no asians" because there aren`t any
    in his town. And the mexicans already know better than to go in there.

    Snakecharmer, firstly this is not a Freedom of Speech issue.

    And secondly, his business is covered in title 2 under Congress`s Constitutionally given right to regulate interstate commerce. (Insert "read it sometime" boomerang here).

    This is what prevented businesses in the south from denying services to African Americans purely on the basis of race. Before this a little black girl who had to go the bathroom could be denied use of a restroom in an establishment and would be forced to pee in a jar her parents kept in their car. Before this, black patrons to a hotel or lunch counter could be turned away because of their race.

    Don`t mess with this most noble law bro, it`s a Sacred Text.

    QueenZira: His training service is not a "public accommodation" under the law. "public accommodations" are stores, restaurants, gas stations, pharmacies and the like, it does not pertain to training services and he`s not a `school or college` as defined by law either.

    "how exactly is he going to weed out Liberals anyway?" I guess you`ve never heard of background check websites have you ?

    Muslim is not a race, and Liberal is not a race. Also, you have the laws correct about interstate commerce, but this issue is not about that either, and this is absolutely an issue of free speech, but when you compare apples to oranges, and try to place laws where they do not belong because you don`t like someone`s opinion, that is called oppression my friend.

    Race is not the only thing offered protection in this country. So is Religion, Sex, Ethnicity, and Freedom of Assembly.

    Just because you don`t understand the law or dislike the law doesn`t make it invalid.

    I would be more than happy to instruct an intelligent law abiding citizen how to safely handle and operate a firearm. My personal favorite concealed carry weapon is a Springfield 45 cal. Custom Champion. It`s much easier to kill someone with a car, and that`s a fact that is proven every day, and yet they still give out drivers licenses to anyone. Guns don`t kill people, bullets do, as do bottles of Jager and texting while driving. Responsibility is what separates right from wrong and me from most of you folks.

    Political correctness is drated.

    Yes, you can say Arab, Middle Eastern, African, Asian etc. are not races and I should be able to discriminate against whoever I want- but then why are we (humans) always dealing with "racism" and affirmative action issues with "black" people? However you want to say it- black people, African Americans, etc- are not a race. White people are not a race. Caucasian is not a race. There isn`t even an international consensus for what race means, beyond the fact that we are all part of the human race. Nevertheless anytime someone is discriminated based on their physical appearance, ethnicity, heritage etc, we call it racism.

    Oh- you aren`t concerned about their appearance, ethnicity, heritage etc? You say you really only care about their religion? And that is less offensive/illegal how?

    "Defend yourself".

    Guns are not shields. They can not block. They can only attack.

    Which can be used as a form of defence:

    i) If you kill your enemy, you prevent them harming you - that is defence.

    ii) If you threaten to kill them in a manner that is convincing enough for them to believe it and to fear you enough to be too scared to harm you, that is also defence.

    So while it`s true that all you can do with a gun is kill or threaten to kill (or shoot targets for sport, but that`s obviously irrelevant in this context), those things can be defensive.

    I think he`ll definitely fall foul of the law for specifying non-Christian *Arabs*, as opposed to all people who aren`t Christians. That puts it under anti-racism laws in the USA, right?

    The rest is refusing custom on the basis of politics and religion, both choices that people make. That choice is what makes it different.

I wouldn`t necessarily pin it on democratic politicians exclusively though, just politicians in general, but it was mostly backed by Democrats.

    Spoken like a closed minded moron that has never been to Texas. Are you really trying to tell me there isn`t backwater under developed places in your country? Do some research, Texas is the largest exporter of goods in the United States. Texas grosses more than $100 billion a year in trade with foreign nations. We have the second largest airport in the country and fourth largest in the world (DFW). Dell`s headquarters are located in the suburbs of Austin. Texas is a global leader in the energy industry and Houston is the energy capital of the world. The Texas Medical Center, located in southwest Houston, is the largest medical center in the world. The list goes on. Needless to say your completely idiotic statement was totally unfounded. You have fun living in China, life is great where I`m

    I find it hysterical how some of you get so worked up over this. Mason TX has a population of about 2000 people and is hundreds of miles from anywhere. But you have joined one of the largest and fastest growing groups of people on Earth called "The Offended."

    And he does make a point. You had what...a year and a half to decide who to vote for? You chose Obama? How the heck is he going to teach you to make what could be a life and death decision in a matter of seconds if you`ve already proven that you can`t make a reasonable decision given hundreds of days.

    They would love to have people who think so similarly to them.

    You should go join the Taliban, because I am sure your views on women have only minor differences.

    And fwiw, though it should have no bearing on the weight of an opinion, I do own two handguns. I carry them everyday because of where I work and the nature of my business. I see no need to carry like I am rambo, so I carry a simple .32 revolver.

    @DromEd, I could also say that anyone who goes to that gun instructor after viewing that advertisement can not make a logical decision because this gun instructor is a stupid drat.

    You have flawed logic.

    It is perfectly acceptable for a private individual to do this (1st amendment). However, it is NOT acceptable and illegal for him to ask the govt to make such distinctions.

    While I do not agree with what you say, I will fight to the death for your right to say it.

    It is his choice to be prejudiced and he is free to do that. It is his business and no one can force him to train anyone he does not want to.

    He may be constitutionally allowed to do that, but should he choose to, the constitution doesn`t prevent him from being a complete ****.

    And you can`t argue with that.

    Oh no! I and all of my liberal (& otherwise undesirable) friends were JUST going to go to his neck of the woods for shootin` lessons! Bummer! I`m just going to have to bite the bullet--so to speak--and ask my Army Ranger uncle to teach me how to handle my 14 firearms.

    PTPete, it`s because he thinks we`re all in cahoots with Muslims trying to instate sharia law and throw all Repubs into secret government prison camps. Which reminds me...

    @xCYBERDYNEx so I think we can all agree it`s a sort of average/ middling kind of state?

    @Draculya, If you would, refer to my previous post that highlighted the several areas where the State of Texas leads the Nation and in some instances the world. Let me reiterate, Texas had a gross state product of $1.332 trillion, the second highest in the U.S.
    Texas`s GSP is comparable to the GDP of India or Canada, which are the world`s 12th and 11th largest economies, respectively. Texas` economy is the fourth-largest of any country subdivision globally, behind England (as part of the UK), California, and Tokyo Prefecture.
    So in closing, no I would not say Texas is an average/middling kind of State. You should probably stick to worrying about Europe because you don`t know what you`re talking about.

    I love it, a liberal`s paradox. Do you take away his freedom to choose how he does business and in turn put more concealed handguns on the street? Oh man, A leads to B leads to C leads to A!
