Woman Bans Muslims From Using Her Gun Range, The Response Is Out Of Control

We have been told time and time again by Obama that Islam is the “religion of peace”. Well, the owner of the Gun Cave Indoor Firing Range in Hot Springs Arkansas, Jan Morgan, isn’t buying that. She threw political correctness right out the window and decided to BAN all Muslim customers. She says she made the decision in September after two customers she deemed suspicious visited. She said their furtive behavior and cellphone ringtones of “Allahu Akhbar” prompted her to revise her range’s policies.

“We are dealing in lethal firearms,” Morgan said. “I’m not going to let a Nazi shoot in here, or a Ku Klux Klan member in here, either.”

Naturally, her business decision has started a liberal uproar.  The Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) wrote a letter to Attorney General Eric Holder seeking the Justice Department’s involvement. In the letter they state, “Given the recent spike in anti-Muslim rhetoric, including Islamophobic statements by government officials, community leaders and media outlets, death threats, and other bias incidents targeting Muslims, I urge you to investigate this matter soon,”

“CAIR believes that systematically banning Muslims from a place of business is a violation of federal laws prohibiting racial and religious discrimination and will inevitably result in a hostile environment for ordinary Muslims in Arkansas,” the letter added.

Of course the ACLU had to get involved as well. They too petitioned federal authorities to do something about Morgan’s banning of Muslims. Executive Director Rita Sklar doesn’t buy Morgan’s reasoning that she is acting out of legitimate caution.

“It’s discrimination based on religion, or, in this case, perceived religion and is a violation of the 1964 Civil Rights Act,” Sklar said. “It isn’t based on that person’s behavior or anything they could reliably use that could be used to bar the person from the premises.”

Morgan, however, swears that it is a matter of public safety and not a constitutional issue.  Legal experts say Morgan may be within her rights if her gun range is deemed a private club. Federal law bars discrimination or segregation in places of public accommodation or those that affect interstate commerce. If Morgan is officially sued, which hasn’t happened yet, she might have to prove that her business does not fall under federal civil rights regulation.  In order for an entity to count as a private club, it must have some sort of restricted membership and not be generally open to the public. Morgan’s gun range so far has been open to the public, except Muslims of course.

Morgan compared offering target practice to potential terrorists to flight schools offering lessons on simulators to the 9/11 terrorists. And because firearms are involved, she said her case is not analogous to cases in which private businesses have been sanctioned for refusing to serve other groups, such as gays.

“One mistake can cost another human being’s life,” she said. “There’s no room for mistakes when you’re handling firearms. We aren’t just refusing to make a wedding cake here.”

The good news for Morgan is, since she has made this controversial decision, her business has quadrupled. Supporters from all over the country have been coming to the range, and some have even offered donations for what they predict will be a legal battle. As you would imagine, she has received some dangerous threats as well. Those threats have only seemed to fuel her fire.  She responded to them by posting her home address on the range website and daring those issuing threats to do so in person.

Wow, this woman knows no fear.
