Saul Askin: Leave Us Alone (and get a life!)
It comes to a point in life where a man needs to stand up to bullies. I’m not saying we need to fly off the handle the first time a person antagonizes us or treats us rudely, but there’s a point where a man needs to draw a line in the sand. Enough is enough.
Here are a few examples.
Here, Saul is telling us that we are:
- Giving out fake certificates
- Our students have wasted money
- Saul encourages people to call the NRA and report us for speaking about the law
- Contact the Citrus County Sheriff’s office to report us as fraud and theft
What Saul Askin is referring to here is simple: I’m a high school drop out, and I turned into an NRA instructor.
Where Saul is wrong here: I don’t teach an NRA class. I’ve created my own class, which gets huge reviews.
As far as “bilking” goes – you can decide what he was referring to. I’m not sure.
What Saul Askin is referring to here is our 1/2 hour lecture that we give with every concealed carry class. We also invite people to become members of our shooting range if they’d like to be.
Here, Saul Askin is referring to the way that, if students want to participate, we take pictures of the entire class and post it to Facebook. Guns shouldn’t be secret – and guns certainly don’t make you a “target.” Saul Askin is inciting fear in his students at our expense.
Why does Saul Askin think that guns need to be so secretive?
But it gets better!
What Saul Askin is referring to here on his Facebook post is our certificate. We use the BLUE NRA Instructor logo, which the NRA allows us to use.
Saul is accusing us of being “crooks” and “ripping off” students.
Saul, if we are “ripping off” our students, and if we are “crooks,” why do we have way more positive reviews than you do? Why do our students sing our praises?
We do things differently than you do: and we use different logos on our non-NRA class certificates. No big deal.
Again, Saul Askin is here saying that by taking pictures of our classes and publishing them on Facebook, we’re just trying to make money and “expose” our student’s identities.
News flash, Saul: our students choose to be in the photo or not. It’s entirely up to them – but most students think it’s a fun thing to do!
