After OK Beheading and ISIS Threats, Arkansas Firing Range Becomes First To Exclude Muslims


In an act that will no doubt result in lawsuits, The Gun Cave Indoor Shooting Range in Hot Springs, Arkansas, has declared itself a “Muslim free zone” due to concerns over domestic Islamic terrorism. The ban was announced yesterday by range owner Jan Morgan in an article posted to her web site where she cites ten points justifying her position.

Among the points cited are prior attacks in the United States that the federal government refuses to classify as terrorism, including the Fort Hood attack, the Boston Marathon bombing, and the last week’s Oklahoma City beheading. Morgan has also received death threats in the past for her writing about Islam.

Another incident that weighed heavily in Morgan’s decision was an incident at her firing range several weeks ago, which she relayed to Bearing Arms this morning.

Morgan claims that two Muslim men who spoke only broken English came to her range and requested to rent semi-automatic firearms and ammunition. One of them could not produce any identification showing that he was in the country legally, and the other had a California driver’s license. Neither had any apparent firearms training. She allowed them to rent one firearm, and stood behind them the entire time they were on the range, her hand on or near her holstered Glock 19. All other patrons voluntarily vacated the firing line while they were shooting.

She brings up a very valid point that gun stores and ranges have both a legal and moral obligation to ensure the safety of their patrons. Because of this, they may refuse service to anyone they deem to be under the influence, mentally unstable, or otherwise a potential threat to themselves, or others. FFLs are afforded a great deal of latitude in this regard, as the federal government would rather err on the side of caution.

Shame Americans don't react this way towards the racist Christian psychopaths as well, oh wait, I forgot, most of them are Christian! Yeah, this is going to end well isn't it? It's like when I heard these morons complaining about these men speaking Arabic on a plane and these guys ended up getting arrested because of it once they landed. Look, I'm not saying that they couldn't have been psychopaths who support ISIS trying to get their hands on weapons so they could go around killing people freely, but the least people can do is apply that logic on an equal basis so it's not discrimination, it's ironic that the only time these gun stores exercise a bit of competence and do some background check is when it's based on their own prejudices.

What's this woman going to look like when someone from her very store ends up killing a bunch of unarmed Muslims or other ethnic group who weren't harming anyone and it turns out the person involved was a Christian?

Well, no doubt there will be all kinds of legal ramifications and challenges, but given current events, as an owner of this kind of establishment, would you really feel comfortable renting a semi-auto firearm to a "Muslim with broken English and no ID"? At some point, your personal safety and that of your other customers takes priority over being politically correct.

Ridic, why would you go to a range, expose your CA DL (even if it is issued to illegals and hence bullshit), get on surveillance cameras, and risk being shot, if you already have guns and can effectively target shoot anywhere in rural areas?
