Alright, let’s get this out of the way right up front – I know some of you are going to get into this article and lose your minds over the title of the video included below. *I had nothing to do that, but the video itself definitely needs to be shared, so if you have a problem with its title, take it up with him.
In a new compilation video posted on YouTube, Joe Techincal takes aim at the mental acuity of Lucien Black, the Fayetteville, NC-based firearms instructor infamous for violating every possible rule of gun safety while insisting his methodologies are better than those recognized and used by experts in the training industry.
Although Black (AKA Therivil Black and Michael Thervil) was stripped of both his NRA instructor credentials and his North Carolina Concealed Carry Instructor credentials by the NC Department of Justice, that hasn’t stopped him from teaching dangerous techniques through irresponsible training practices to Voda’s unsuspecting clients.
His latest “training videos” prove Black hasn’t taken a step back to study industry best practices, or even learn the basic four rules of gun safety. It’s clear he’s more interested in becoming an internet sensation than a bonafide firearms instructor.
Although it’s not the first video to question Black’s mental capacity, Joe Technical used Voda’s own videos overlapped with the symptoms of mental retardation to highlight the parallels between the world’s worst firearms instructor’s behavior and the characteristics of a generalized neurodevelopmental disorder characterized by significantly impaired intellectual and adaptive functioning.
At a minimum, anyone who aims real firearms at people “to effectively take small steps to help rewire the client’s neurotransmitters thus, increasing the likelihood of survival” while claiming to be “more credible than the NRA AND POLICE COMBINED!” has some serious issues.

Also, it’s now referred to as “Intellectual Disability”. You can read more about the disorder [HERE].
