    In the five months since Jan Morgan banned Muslims from her gun range in Hot Springs, Ark., business has boomed and predictions of a lawsuit brought by federal civil rights enforcers have so far proved inaccurate.

    Morgan, who claims keeping Muslims out of her Gun Cave Indoor Firing Range is a matter of public safety and not a constitutional issue, says she made the decision in September after two customers she deemed suspicious visited. She said their furtive behavior and cellphone ringtones of “Allahu Akhbar” prompted her to revise her range’s policies.

    “We are dealing in lethal firearms,” Morgan told FoxNews.com. “I’m not going to let a Nazi shoot in here, or a Ku Klux Klan member in here, either.”

    Morgan said she excludes those she believes to be Muslim based on their names. She says business is up, but she has gotten threats, which she brushed off.

    This gun range will be found to be wrong. This an example of the worst when it cones to discrimination.

    She doesn’t let nazis or kkkers to shoot there either. The race baiting remark falls flat.

    The strawman argument also falls flat, since there was no advocacy to take 2nd amendment rights away from any group.

    She is running a public business. That kind of discrimination is not OK.

    I’ll bet it plays out that way too.

    Really, she should just convert to a club.

    Either be open to the public and get the business benefit of easy customers, or don’t and do the work to build membership.

    It is supposed to be one or the other.

    She wants her cake and to eat it too.

    The law is clear on these distinctions and as usual, conservatives only respect laws they like.

    “Morgan said she excludes those she believes to be Muslim based on their names”

    Doesn’t get any more discriminatory than that.
