The owner of a gun store in Florida, apparently completely unaware of this pesky thing called the law, put up a Youtube video declaring that he will not allow Muslims to buy guns in his store. Because he’s a “patriot” (I do not think that means what you think it means), dontchaknow.
The New York Daily News said that Andy Hallinan, owner of Florida Gun Supply, released a YouTube video on Saturday in which he declared his intention to bar Muslims from the shop.
Backdropped by a Confederate Flag, Hallinan said, “I have a moral and legal responsibility to ensure the safety of all patriots in my community, and so effective immediately, I’m declaring Florida Gun Supply as a Muslim-free zone. I will not arm and train those who wish to do harm to my fellow patriots.”
By Tuesday morning, the video had racked up more than 35,000 views.
“We are in battle, patriots, but not only with Islamic extremism,” Hallinan said. “We’re also in battle against extreme political correctness that threatens our lives, because if we can’t call evil, evil for fear of offending people, then we can’t really defeat our enemies.”
I’m sure the NRA will be putting out a very strong statement about this outrageous discrimination and about the inviolability of one’s right to bear arms any minute, right? Right? Yeah, I didn’t think so.
