Freedom is a wonderful thing.

Including the freedom to be a bigot.

Such is the case with a Hot Springs, Arkansas range that bans Muslims.

While only a handful of fringe lunatic Americans love radical Muslims and their jihad against the West, characterizing all Muslims as potential Sudden Jihadi Syndrome terrorists is just as wrong and distasteful as claiming all gun owners are a bad day away from a murderous rampage.

Jan Morgan’s range in Hot Springs is five months into their “no Muslims” policy and they seem to be continuing their arbitrary ban, as is their right to do.

(FoxNews) – In the five months since Jan Morgan banned Muslims from her gun range in Hot Springs, Ark., business has boomed and predictions of a lawsuit brought by federal civil rights enforcers have so far proved inaccurate.

Morgan, who claims keeping Muslims out of her Gun Cave Indoor Firing Range is a matter of public safety and not a constitutional issue, says she made the decision in September after two customers she deemed suspicious visited. She said their furtive behavior and cellphone ringtones of “Allahu Akhbar” prompted her to revise her range’s policies.

“We are dealing in lethal firearms,” Morgan told “I’m not going to let a Nazi shoot in here, or a Ku Klux Klan member in here, either.”

  1. I’d have to disagree. During WWII, most would have done the same type of thing with known Nazis. Nazism is/was a belief, no differently than Islam.
    We are always taught/told to avoid dangerous situations. I see her as doing exactly that. Whether you want to call it bigoted or not is your choice. I see it as her making a choice to help keep herself safe, as well as her customers.

  2. KK: You and I agree on the similarities between the Nazis and some Muslims during WWII. I believe history tells us they were working together in certain places.

    I have no Muslim friends, but like John wrote, I don’t think they are all wild-eyed radical crazies. A blanket discrimination is not right.

    Would you patronize a place that said “No Christians” or “No Jews”?


    1. No, I wouldn’t, in the same way I would not patronize a place that says “NO GUNS.” If they don’t want me there, then I’ll find another place. It is their business, and their decision. They are the ones who have invested their money in the business. It is really not for others to determine how they run it.
      She feels that Muslims are unsafe. Owners of ranges also do not allow personal reloads, steel based rounds, etc., for similar reasons. I think she knows more about it than I do.

    2. Last time I checked, the religious books of the Jews and Christians do not promote the killing of non-believers. The same cannot be said for Muslims. Though I have not read the Koran, I have heard from many non-Muslims who have read it. They have said that it is full of passages promoting killing infidels. Their “god” was himself a murderer and more. How are we to know when a “good” Muslim is going to turn, and start acting on what he/she has read? Once a person’s head is removed from the body, as in Oklahoma, it’s a little too late.There have already been numerous acts of terrorism in our own country, by Muslims. How would you feel if she were prohibited from barring Muslims, and then was killed by one? What would you tell her family? Oops?
      How is it that the government can tell a business that it can’t allow people to smoke in their own business, but yet that same business owner is supposedly not allowed to ban Muslims?
      In today’s world, which one is potentially more life threatening? People choose to smoke, and people choose to be Islamic.
      I am totally opposed to smoking, but when they told businesses that they have to ban smoking, they went too far. If it allows smoking and I don’t like it, I won’t go there.
      If Muslims were banned from a business, I’d be more likely to go there, as this woman is apparently finding out. It’s just a smart business decision, however you look at it.
