When I was in the army, in a post 9/11 world, I was basically trained to killed Islamic terrorists. When I came home I was able to differentiate between a middle eastern terrorist and a mid western cowboy hat wearing, F150 driving American who happens to pray in a mosque.
Jan Morgan, owner of the Gun Cave, in Hot Springs Arkansas has come out and publicly and stated that she will NOT sell to Muslims and that her store is in fact a “Muslim Free Zone.”
Morgan puts forth “facts” that she claims legitimizes her personal belief that punishing an entire sect of people for their right of religious choice is somehow valid.
Here are her ten “facts” with my rebuttals in bold.
1) The Koran (which I have read and studied thoroughly and (which all Muslims align themselves with), contains 109 verses commanding hate, murder and terror against all human beings who refuse to submit or convert to Islam. OK, like that is only found in the Koran? How about:
Deuteronomy 17:12 “Anyone arrogant enough to reject the verdict of the judge or of the priest who represents the LORD your God must die.”
Or Leviticus 21:9 A priest’s daughter who loses her honor by committing fornication and thereby dishonors her father also, shall be burned to death.
Or 2 Chronicles 15:12-13 They entered into a covenant to seek the Lord, the God of their fathers, with all their heart and soul; and everyone who would not seek the Lord, the God of Israel, was to be put to death, whether small or great, whether man or woman
Deuteronomy 13:13-19 Suppose you hear in one of the towns the LORD your God is giving you that some worthless rabble among you have led their fellow citizens astray by encouraging them to worship foreign gods. In such cases, you must examine the facts carefully. If you find it is true and can prove that such a detestable act has occurred among you, you must attack that town and completely destroy all its inhabitants, as well as all the livestock
Deuteronomy 13:7-12 If your own full brother, or your son or daughter, or your beloved wife, or you intimate friend, entices you secretly to serve other gods, whom you and your fathers have not known, gods of any other nations, near at hand or far away, from one end of the earth to the other: do not yield to him or listen to him, nor look with pity upon him, to spare or shield him, but kill him.
Luke 19:27 But as for these enemies of mine, who did not want me to reign over them, bring them here and slaughter them before me.
Are Christians and Jews still welcomed in your store or do you cater only to atheists?
2) My life has been threatened repeatedly by Muslims who are angry that I have studied their Koran and am exposing the vileness of their “holy book” and its murderous directives. So if you were mugged by a Asian guy you would stop selling to all Asian people?
3) * The barbaric act of beheading an innocent American in Oklahoma by a Muslim
* the Boston bombings(by Muslims)
* the Foot Hood mass shooting (by a Muslim) that killed 13 people and injured over 30 people
* and the murder of 3000 innocent people (by Muslims) on 9/11
This is more than enough loss of life on my home soil at the hands of Muslims to substantiate my position that Muslims can and will follow the directives in their Koran and kill here at home.
Yep, that happened and I don’t excuse their actions. But prior to 2001 two of the most potent terrorist attacks on American soil came from Timothy McVeigh & Terry Nicols for the Oklahoma City bombing and serial terrorist bomber Eric Rudolph who was the Atlanta Olympic bomber and who followed that up by bombing three more locations. All white male Christians, are all white male Christians banned from your store as well?
4) Because the nature of my business involves firearms and shooting firearms in an enclosed environment, my patrons are not comfortable being around Muslims who align themselves with a religion that clearly commands hate, murder, and violence against all non Muslims. Therefore many of my patrons are uncomfortable around Muslims with guns.
Now we are just getting into simple bigotry and you are projecting it onto your customers. Sure, if before they get a gun these Muslims were praying “death to America and the non-believers” I could see them making people uncomfortable and I wouldn’t sell to THEM either, but I’ve heard a lot of people say a lot of dumb crap over the years and I won’t lump them all together with people who have no association with them either.
5) My range rents and sells guns to my patrons. Why would I want to rent or sell a gun and hand ammunition to someone who aligns himself with a religion that commands him to kill me?
If you follow the bible Jan then you are supposed to kill them too. It’s kind of the basis for the Crusades. Are you down with hypocrisy?
6) * Muslims, who belong to and, or, support ISIS, are threatening to kill innocent Americans.
* Muslims, who belong to or support AL Qaeda, are threatening to kill innocent Americans.
* Muslims who belong to or support HAMAS are threatening to kill innocent Americans.
See a common thread here?
Yeah…don’t sell guns to terrorists. But that’s not what YOU’RE doing. In fact, you are propagating the same mentality as the terrorists. In that since the US has bombed them therefore ALL Americans should be treated as if they personally dropped the bombs. Terrorists don’t make distinctions and now neither are you. How’s that feel?
7) I not only have the right to refuse service but a RESPONSIBILITY to provide a safe environment for people to shoot and train on firearms. I can and have turned people away if I sense they are under the influence of alcohol or mind altering drugs. I can and have turned people away if I sense an issue with their mental state.
Funny thing is you’re right. You have that right, just like those jackasses who run stores that are anti-gun have the right to ban guns because they equate all gun owners with being criminals. Welcome aboard the SS Bloomberg, Jan, I’m sure he’s happy to have you aboard.
8) The Muslim brotherhood has a documented plan for the destruction of America from within, discovered by our own government during a raid of MB operatives in America.
In addition, I am very cognizant of the civilization jihad under way in my country by American Muslims.
In a number of states Muslims, through our legal system, are trying to force us to accept Sharia Law over Constitutional law.
I do not wish to do business with people who stand against the Constitution and are fighting to replace it.
And there are America Muslims who are dying because they do not accept Sharia law. In fact, you are facilitating the death of Muslim women by the hands of their extremist husbands and fathers and brothers because you won’t sell these American women a gun to defend themselves.
9) Islam allows Muslims to kill their own children, (honor killing) if the behavior of those children embarrasses or dishonors the family name. ( did you know that dating outside of the faith is justification for murdering their daughters and this has already occurred on American soil?)
Why would I want people (who believe its okay to murder their own children), be in the presence of other children?
My patrons often bring their kids to the range to teach them to shoot.
I am responsible for providing a safe environment for those children to learn gun safety and shooting sports.
Like I said before, you are part of the problem Jan. I guess you only care about protecting children of your OWN faith. How sad. No doubt you have a stated policy on banning all pro-choice citizens from your establishment too?
10) In the 14 hundred year history of Islam, Muslims have murdered over 270 million people.
Jan Morgan should stick to simplified sensationalism of today’s modern world because she does not have the depth to deal with history. First of all, during the Crusades when the Christians took Jerusalem they put every Muslim man woman and child to the sword following a three year campaign of carnage through Turkey, Antioch and Ma’aara. When the Muslims eventually reclaimed the city years later, they let the non-believers leave the city unharmed.
Hitler and Nazi Germany, via WWII and concentration camps killed around 11 million people in a matter of years. A tenth of the deaths in hundredth of the time. Do you ban Americans of German decent from your store, Jan?
And let’s not forget that the US dropped TWO nuclear bombs on civilian based populations killing over 200 THOUSAND people. Does every American have the blood of nearly a quarter billion Japanese people on their hands? Of Course not. Yet you condemn an entire people based on the actions of a relative few.
This isn’t like the gun shop owner who stated that he wouldn’t sell to Obama voters. That actually makes sense. It would as if Jan Morgan came out and said she wouldn’t sell to Muslims who support the death of non believers and in Sharia law. But she doesn’t do that. She rejects ALL followers of Islam even though her own religion speaks of doing the same acts she condemns.
It’s a shame that Jan Morgan is letting her bitterness and hatred blind her to the fact that, in denying the 2nd Amendment to a group of people who are practicing their freedom of religion, JUST because it is a different religion than hers, she is being just as intolerant and bigoted and ugly as those terrorists who commit such vile acts.
This is America, we are supposed to be better than that.
Not only that, Morgan is also propagating the ugly stereotype that gun owners and those who believe in the 2nd Amendment are just out of touch white hicks who hate everyone who is darker than they are.
It’s not true of course, but no doubt the enemies of the 2nd Amendment will jump all over Jan Morgan’s racist bigotry and use it as a lever to try and push their anti gun agenda.
Like when Big Government spenders point to spoiled rich people as reasons why we need higher taxes on the rich.
Congratulations Jan, you have become the Paris Hilton of the 2nd Amendment.
