NRA Certified Concealed Carry Instructor Admits No Wrongdoing

 Local news reports further to our earlier post

Instructor Rick Ramsey says he feels terrible about what happened, but claims it was a freak accident that may have been the result of students not paying attention. 

On Saturday afternoon, 7 students got a lot more than they bargained for when they came to the Whitesboro Rodeo grounds to earn their Concealed Handgun License. 

It was instructor Rick Ramsey's first time teaching the class. 

"Well I heard somebody hollering really loud down there and keep hearing 'I been hit I been hit'," said Ramsey.

"Three more inches to the left and he could've been hit in the heart and killed," said Grayson County Lieutenant, Ricky Wheeler.

The Grayson County Sheriff's Office says a Sadler man in his twenties was fishing in a pond about a hundred yards away from the class, when he was shot by a stray bullet. 

But because he is NRA certified, and it is legal for him to teach CHL classes, only the district attorney can decide what's next. 

"We're going to be speaking with Mr. Brown and looking at this very hard to try to get Mr. Ramsey shut down, until he finds a place that is proper and safe to shoot at," said Lt. Wheeler.

Mr. Ramsey should be punished twice.  Once for being an irresponsible gun instructor and twice for trying to blame a student. The negligent student should be punished once.
