A gun range in Hot Springs, Arkansas, was declared to be a "Muslim free zone" last year by its owner, Jan Morgan.
A college student and his father recently tried to do some target practice at Gun Cave, but were turned away by a female, purported to be Morgan. The student and his father are not Muslim, but rather South Asian. They asked not to be named.
"My dad and I used to go to this gun range," the student told the Arkansas Times. "But we haven’t had as much of a chance to go in recent years since I've been at college. It's changed ownership recently."
"When we went in, a woman asked, ‘Where are you guys from?’ We told her we were from Hot Springs. She said, 'This is a Muslim free shooting range,'" recalled the student.
The student and his father asked why it is "Muslim free," and were told by the woman, "I don’t think you guys should be here."
"We’re brown, I don’t know if she assumed we were Muslim," the student stated. "When she first asked us, she said, ‘I would hope if you were Muslim you guys wouldn't be cowards and would be up front about it.'
"It’s definitely crazy that there’s such intolerance," the student added.
Morgan wrote on her website last year:
The primary reasons I am do not want Muslims shooting at my range are listed:
1) The Koran (which I have read and studied thoroughly) and (which Muslims align themselves with), contains 109 verses commanding hate, murder and terror against all human beings who refuse to submit or convert to Islam.
2) My life has been threatened repeatedly by Muslims in response to my publication of those verses from their Koran. 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?
3) 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.
