The owner of an Arkansas shooting range has banned all Muslim people from patronizing her business. Now, despite threats of legal actions, she is doubling down on her policy.
Last September, Jan Morgan, the owner of Gun Cave Indoor Shooting Range, pronounced that she would no longer allow Muslims from patronizing her business, by declaring it a “Muslim-free zone.”
A legal complaint was filed by The Council for American-Islamic Relations, or CAIR, on behalf of a South Asian father and son who claim they were denied access because of their skin color. Both claim to be Hindu, not Muslim.
She took to Facebook to post photographs of the men, claiming she asked them to leave because they were acting “strange.”
Along with the photographs of the men, she wrote “Geeze…I hate to have to embarrass the liberal mainstream media again, but…a girls gotta do what a girls gotta do.”
She has defended her discriminatory policy by alleging that Islam is a religion that commands its followers to kill unbelievers and that she refuses to put a gun into the hands of “someone who aligns himself with that ideology.”
She goes on to say “We are dealing in lethal firearms. I’m not going to let a Nazi shoot in here, or a Ku Klux Klan member in here, either.”
Since her story has become public, many people have taken to social media to share opinions, with some showing their support for her by saying:
“I’d go there just BECAUSE she did it!”- John n Julie Frye
“Good for her. It’s not racist, it’s a religious belief and a way of life.Why the hell should we pander to a religion that discriminates against women.One would think the lefty liberals would be against discrimination.”- Stephan Paul Williams
“Good for her it just shows that you can support what you believe in and not give in to being Politically correct and live with the results.”- Dick Howard
Of course, with this being the internet and all, there were plenty of people expressing their disagreement with the policy, saying things like:
“I think it’s wrong. there are some beautiful Muslim names that like Tobias and Ariana for example… those are just two names. imagine going here and getting kicked out because your name is Adam, which is an Islamic or Muslim name.”- Nicole Braden
“If she banned Christians there’d probably be screeches of discrimination.”- Camille
“Her insanely stupid quote that Islam is a religion that commands its followers to kill others proves she knows absolutely nothing about Islam. What an ignorant idiot.”- Michael Brauer.
