Texas gun store owner behind discounts for teachers

One outspoken Texas gun store owner is offering local teachers a 10 percent discount to attend his concealed carry handgun classes in light of the Newtown, Conn., tragedy.

“I was stunned, but not necessarily shocked, when I heard what happened [in Newtown],” said Crockett Keller, who owns Keller’s Riverside Store in Mason, Texas. “I thought, ‘There we go again, another gun-free zone.’ What would have happened had there been a teacher with a handgun or a principal with some sort of defense training?”
