Gun Stuff News

Ten percent of any group ruins it for the other 90%. That said, I disagree with this action:
Jan Morgan, a popular conservative writer who owns the Gun Cave Indoor Shooting Range in Hot Springs, Arkansas, has declared her business a “Muslim-Free Zone,” Truth Revolt reported Monday. Citing concerns over the safety of her customers who buy, rent and shoot firearms at her business, Morgan said she has banned Muslims from her business.
“This is not a coffee and donut shop,” she wrote, explaining that she runs a live-fire indoor shooting range. Customers, she added, shoot firearms in close proximity to each other, so, she explained, “my patrons depend on me and my discretion regarding who I allow to shoot beside them.”
Whenever there’s a gun murder, gun control activists are quick to demand the disarming of America, ignoring the fact that 70 million gun owners did not go out and kill someone that same day.
The same logic applies — or should apply — here. The fact is that 2.6 million Muslims living in the United States did not behead someone last week. They want nothing more than to go about their lives, raise their families, and enjoy the same freedoms the rest of us do. And, some might enjoy the freedom to buy a gun and practice with it at the local range, just as you and I do.
Further, if someone (Muslim, Christian, whatever) were to snap and start shooting people at a range, I’d think that there are enough other armed people there to end it pretty quickly.
I think Morgan is being an ass about this.
