Jan Morgan is a conservative blogger who owns the Gun Cave Indoor Shooting Range in Hot Springs, Arkansas. She recently decided to violate the Civil Rights Act by banning Muslims from her business. I’m sure you’ll be shocked to find out what a complete hypocrite she is about the whole thing.
In a post on her website, Gun Cave Indoor Shooting Range owner Jan Morgan explained why she had decided to ban all Muslims.
“This is not a coffee and donut shop. This is a live fire indoor shooting range,” she wrote. “In the range, people are shooting guns in close proximity to each other, so my patrons depend on me and my discretion regarding who I allow to shoot beside them. One mistake in judgement on my part could cost innocent people their lives.”…
“Two muslims walked in to my range last week with allah akbar ring tone and message alert tones on their smart phones. They spoke very little english, one did not have proof of U.S. citizenship, yet they wanted to rent and shoot guns,” she wrote. “Their behavior was so strange, it was unnerving to my patrons. No one would enter the range to shoot while they were there. Some of my customers left.”
Morgan argued that her federal firearms license gave her the discretion to deny service to people “if I sense an issue with their mental state.”
She agreed that not all Muslims were terrorists, but that it was impossible to tell which one were so all of them had to be banned.
Really? So your argument is that a business has to be responsible in guarding the safety of their customers because it’s impossible for them to know which people carrying guns might be good guys and which might be bad guys? I can buy that. But she doesn’t really mean this when it comes to anyone other than Muslims. In fact, she’s boycotting Target because they asked their customers not to carry guns into their stores (didn’t ban it, just asked them not to).
I don’t shop Target anymore because they favor criminals over law abiding citizens and seem to think, based on their new policy, that disarming law abiding citizens for the criminals is a way to create a “family friendly” environment..
But as you said yourself, Jan, a business owner has no way of knowing which gun-toting person in their stores is a good guy and which is a bad guy. The difference, though, is that all they did was ask people not to bring guns, which prompted your boycott. You, on the other hand, are blatantly violating the Civil Rights Act by discriminating on the basis of religion. I suspect that may be why you pulled down that blog post. I’m guessing your lawyer gave you a call.
Mind you, Christian bad guys with guns have committed atrocities in this country far more often than Muslim bad guys with guns. There have been a handful of bombings and attempted bombings by Muslim terrorists, but not much in the way of gun violence. Christian terrorists, on the other hand, have murdered lots of people with guns. But if any business ever said that they would ban Christians carrying guns, this woman would flip the fuck out and start screaming TYRANNY!
