Woman Banned This Group Of People From Her Business, Now This Is Happening

There is growing fear within America about the threat of homegrown and foreign terrorism, especially given contemporary instability within the Middle East. Because of this fear, Muslims living in America have borne the brunt of rising Islamophobia across the nation. Many Muslims have been accused of sympathizing with terrorist groups like ISIS and there has been numerous small scale, religiously motivated attacks across the country. Sadly, the complex question of Islamic fundamentalism has become a highly politicized topic within America with politicians on both sides of the political spectrum ignoring specifics and instead, using digestible slogans and generalizations. Without answers or guidance, concerned Americans are using their own methods to make themselves feel safer from Islamic terrorism.

A 2014 story has emerged from a firing range in Hot Springs, Arkansas detailing the controversial precautions a gun range owner has taken to protect herself and her customers from the threat of religious shootings or other terrorist acts. In late 2014, Jan Morgan banned Muslims from entering her gun range and using firearms. Ms. Morgan believes that she is acting out of public safety rather than a hatred of Muslims and made the decision in September after observing two Muslim customers acting suspiciously on the gun range. Moreover, Ms. Morgan was particularly troubled by their phone ringtones of ‘Allahu Akhbar”, a common cry of Islamic terrorists that roughly translates to ‘God is Great’. In a statement to Fox News defending her actions, Ms. Morgan said: “We are dealing in lethal firearms. I’m not going to let a Nazi shoot in here, or a Ku Klux Klan member in here, either”.

Ms. Morgan’s actions have been widely praised within the community and abroad, with reports that business has ‘quadrupled’ since the announcement. However, the ban on Muslims has not been without a hitch and Ms. Morgan is believed to have received threats from angered customers. Ms. Morgan has also been threatened with legal action after The Council on American-Islamic Relations and The American Civil Liberties Union tentatively challenged the ban’s legal precedent. At the time of writing, Ms. Morgan’s business remains operating and appears to be highly successful. However, allegations of discrimination have also surfaced after a Hindu man and his son were refused admission into the gun range.
