The Right to Be Muslim Free

Recently MailOnline posted an article regarding a gun range owner in Arkansas. The posting wasn’t about a spotless safety record. It didn’t regard the owner’s advocacy for gun rights or the second amendment. They didn’t write about a successful woman owned small business. No, it wasn’t a feel-good story.

Evidently Ms. Jan Morgan, the owner of Gun Cave Indoor Shooting Range in Hot Springs, has declared her establishment “Muslim Free”.

Well, hearing this, CAIR, the Council on American-Islamic Relations, sprang into action. Did they protest her establishment? Did they contact Ms. Morgan to meet with her and try to belay her “irrational” fear? No, of course not.

They did what all radical organizations do in America. They whined to the federal government on the grounds of racial and religious discrimination.

CAIR, the well-known, at least to us, front group of the Muslim Brotherhood with ties to Hamas, asked the “Social” Justice Department, Civil Rights Division, to investigate Ms. Morgan.

As an aside, can we all just stop with the “racist” claims against Muslims? Muslim isn’t a race. There are Muslims of practically every race on earth. Drives me nuts!

Anyway, Ms. Morgan claims to have good reason for the policy. A recent incident at her range sparked the policy shift. She said that two men entered her facility. They wanted to rent weapons and shoot. “They spoke very little English and one did not have proof of U.S. citizenship”, she said. Apparently, one of the men must have received a call because she said his ring tone was “Allahu Akbar”. Morgan said, “They were constantly glancing toward the cameras in the range, then looking at each other and speaking in their own language. Their behavior was so strange it frightened my patrons. No one would enter the range to shoot while they were there. Some of my customers left. I lost business and the people who remained at my facility said they did so out of fear for my safety.” She added, “They come in here and act normal, we don’t have a problem”, but, “since I have no way of discerning which Muslims will or will not kill in the name of their religion and the commands in their Koran, I choose to err on the side of caution for the safety of my patrons.”

She posted on Facebook that, “I’ve been a target of Islamist threats for five years, fully expecting at any time one of them to follow through with the threat.”

Rita Sklar, executive director of the American Civil Liberties Union in Arkansas told Business Insider that the ban is “unconstitutional”. “It’s a violation of the right to religious liberty,” said Sklar.

Okay, I’d like to say this is just how the homosexual marriage/ceremony/wedding cake flap went, but this may be much worse. I don’t think a homosexual couple will behead someone for not making a cake.

Also, I ask Ms. Sklar, brilliant ACLU attorney: Just where in the Constitution does it say that a private business can’t deny service or entry to anyone it chooses? Sure, there are federal “Civil Rights Laws” that are based upon nothing – certainly not on the Constitution.

I mean really – how did these lawyers ever graduate law school or pass the bar without even a basic understanding of our supreme law, the Constitution – which trumps all “laws”?

The First Amendment reads: “Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the government for a redress of grievances.”

The free exercise of religion or the right to peaceably assemble does not extend to residences and private businesses. It’s not as if I have the right to gather a group of Christians inside an atheist bookstore, assuming there is such a thing, and begin a prayer group. This woman should have every right to exclude Muslims, or anyone else.

With you agree or disagree with Ms. Morgan’s position is not and should be of no account.

These professional “victims” need to get over themselves and find somewhere they are more welcome – period.

  1. What has happened to America? We the people have lost our backbone! We are being taken over by people who want to destroy our way of life and we sit on the sidelines and watch it happen and do nothing. If you believe in something you have to stand up for it. every business owner has the right to say NO SERVICE PERIOD. Back off US GOV – pro whatever crybabies. We as a nation will thrive or die depending on what we DO or choose to ignore. Wake up up people and stand up for what you believe in while you still have a country.

    • What happened to America? Part of it has to do with a book that pays tribute to the devil. That is Saul Alinsky’s Rules for Radicals. One of his rules is that “When ever you can, use their own rules against them.” Just about everything obama does is connected into alinsky. Also, he believes in the natural inferiority of Americans in his beliefs. I have nothing to say that people don’t already know. I just telling you what come to my mind. It is so sad. God bless America.
