Despite the threat of discrimination complaints, a woman who banned Muslims from her gun range in September has yet to face any charges. On top of that, business is reportedly booming.
Jan Morgan, Gun Cave Indoor Shooting Range owner, announced that her Arkansas business would become a “Muslim-free zone” last year. At least one anti-discrimination complaint from the Council for American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) has been threatened, but Morgan’s gun range has remained closed to the religious group.
Morgan’s story gained attention once again on Wednesday when she posted a furious rant to Facebook.
“Geeze…I hate to have to embarrass the liberal mainstream media again, but…a girls gotta do what a girls gotta do,” Morgan wrote.
Several pictures of South Asian shooters were included in her post, which she uploaded after some customers accused her of turning away anyone with brown skin. The complaint was made by an anonymous father and son of South Asian decent who, though they identify as Hindu, claimed they were turned away because of their skin color. Though Morgan admitted in The Post that she had asked the two men to leave her gun range, she insisted it was because of their “strange” behavior.
Morgan, who says she identifies Muslims based on their names, defended her policy. She argued that Islam is a religion that commands its followers to kill others, and that she wouldn’t put a gun in the hand of “someone who aligns himself” with that ideology.
“We are dealing in lethal firearms,” Morgan said. “I’m not going to let a Nazi shoot in here, or a Ku Klux Klan member in here, either.”
Despite the negative publicity surrounding Morgan’s gun range, like a letter of complaint from the CAIR to Attorney General Eric Holder, Morgan reported that business is booming.
Morgan added that she would consider banning other ideologies from her range if they posed a threat to her patrons.
