It appears that not everyone is happy with the program; an Orange County man has issued a letter to Lee threatening legal action over what he feels to be gender-based discrimination. Apparently, men are allowed to utilize the range on Thursdays, but they must pay the $15 fee. The man is upset that he had to pay while women were admitted for free and demands compensation from the range.
The letter reads in part:
“Promotions such as those mentioned above constitute civil rights violations under the California Unruh Civil Rights Act and entitle the individual subject to discrimination to statutory damages.”
Patrons have reacted in shock to his letter.
“A man should not feel discriminated against a woman learning how to defend herself,” said Dee Delgado.
“He could come pay for it, I don’t understand why he would cut off other people,” agreed Gouvea.
Jason Gouvea, Makayla Gouvea’s father, is also confused by the man’s letter. “Maybe this guy doesn’t have a mother or sister or a daughter, I don’t know,” he said.
At this time, Lee has no interest in discontinuing the program, despite what his lawyers are advising. He said he is even willing to go to court to fight for the program in a legal setting.
