    HOT SPRINGS, Ark. – An Arkansas gun range owner is defending her decision to ban Muslims from her business.

    The Gun Cave Indoor Firing Range welcomes anyone except Muslims.

    Jan Morgan, the owner, says she made the decision to keep her gun range a “Muslim-free zone” in the name of safety.

    In an article on her website, she states the Koran contains 109 verses commanding hate, murder and terror.

    Hundreds of fans support her, but not everyone feels the same.

    One man says he and his father were asked to leave and they are not even Muslims.

    They’re of Indian descent and are Hindu.

    “She just said ‘you know, I don’t think you guys belong here’,” the man told NBC affiliate KARK.

    The man says when he walked into the gun range, he was immediately asked where he was from.

    “She mentions that this is a Muslim-free gun range and if you are then please leave,” the man said.

    The man says even after he let the owner know he was Hindu, he was still asked to leave.

    However, the owner of the range told KARK that she never asks if someone is a Muslim, or where they’re from.

    Jan Morgan says she makes those decisions based on people’s behavior and whether she feels safety would be compromised.

    She says the two people in questions were asked to leave because of safety concerns, not because of race or religion.

    “We have a number of people with all colors of skin who shoot here, including Indian / Hindu religion folks who have joined our membership and some of them actually have sought out my services for private training, which I provided,” Morgan wrote on Facebook.

    According to KARK, legal professionals say Morgan may be allowed to discriminate because she acts as a “private club.”

    Hot Springs, Arkansas. Helping disprove the stereotype . . .

    Anyway, there is scant chance the "private club" exception will apply here; so she might want to either rethink this or hire a good 14th Amendment/Civil Rights Act attorney to defend this grand-standing.

    There's a court case in Washington state where a small business woman, a florist, refused to sell flowers to a guy who wanted them for his wedding, to another guy. Naturally instead of going to another floral shop and realizing that the business does not have to serve you, he sued the floral shop under some consumer protection act nonsense. I believe this case was recently adjudicated in favor of the homo. Sick world we live in.

    She will probably lose in court.


    The real question.. What if a Muslim goes to a firing range and starts yelling "Allah Akbar" as they pop off rounds?


    That would be a great case to adjudicate.

    I should have also added that she didn't sell the flowers to the homo due to religious objections. The first amendment works both ways.

    It's against my religion to sell to people over 6 feet tall. First amendment surely covers that right?

    I got a kick of a "ban Sharia in Idaho" banner I saw somewhere. There are probably 10 Muslims in the entire state.

    True conservatives should give a fuck more about what's happening in their locale before worrying about what happens 500 miles away in a blue state they could give 2 shits about.

    I'm not a fan of the muzzie religion, either, but that's taking it too far.
