Gun Range Owner Bans Muslims From Using Her Business
In 2014, an Arkansas gun range closed its doors to Muslims. Owner Jan Morgan dubbed Gun Cave Indoor Shooting Range a “Muslim-free zone,” sparking outrage from those who saw her new policy.
Gun Range Access DeniedAccording to one public account, a father and son were not allowed to enter the gun range. They were assumed to be Muslim because of their tan skin — although they were Hindu — and were prohibited from entering due to Morgan’s policy. The men took this issue to the Council for American-Islamic Relations (CAIR), who then filed a legal complaint. Morgan retaliated by posting pictures of the men on her Facebook page. She called their behavior “strange” and asked them to leave. To discourage any possible Muslim visitors, Morgan first checks the names on the reservation.
Morgan has received both positive and negative reactions to her post, but her gun range is doing just fine. Since publishing her ideas online, Morgan’s facility is doing better than ever. Owners of other gun ranges and similar businesses have implemented the same policy. In her original article, Morgan addresses the Quran (the Islamic holy book), her own experience being threatened by Muslims, and many other issues that led her to make her gun range a “Muslim-free zone.” Stephen Paul Williams said, “Good for her. It’s not racist; it’s a religious belief and a way of life. Why the hell should we pander to a religion that discriminates against women. One would think the lefty liberals would be against discrimination.” On the other hand, Michael Brauer said, “Her insanely stupid quote that Islam is a religion that commands its followers to kill others proves she knows absolutely nothing about Islam. What an ignorant idiot.”
