Justice Department will ‘monitor’ the ‘Muslim-free’ gun range in Arkansas

After calls for an investigation from at least two advocacy groups, the Justice Department’s civil rights division will “monitor” an Arkansas gun range that declared itself a “Muslim-free zone” last fall.

The Council on American-Islamic Relations wrote the Justice Department last year about statements made by Jan Morgan, the owner of Gun Cave Shooting Range in Hot Springs. In the October letter, addressed to Attorney General Eric H. Holder, CAIR said that the range was “systematically banning Muslims from a place of business” and that doing so was “a violation of federal laws prohibiting racial and religious discrimination.”

The Arkansas chapter of the American Civil Liberties Union also asked for a federal investigation.

The Justice Department confirmed that it was “monitoring the matter” in a brief e-mail to The Washington Post. However, the agency hasn’t indicated whether it has any plans to launch an investigation…

    Why anyone with male gonads would prefer a talking garbage bag to a gal like Jan Morgan is beyond me. Best of luck to her.

    What will they do if a brewery is declared a muslim free zone?

  • David Murrell

    The reason while Obama’s corrupt (in)justice department will monitor the gun range, is because the department want Muslims free practice rights, in order to train to join the Islamic State.

    An law that prohibits a group from selecting it’s own membership is unconstitutional. We have a constitutional right to freedom of association.

  • Mohamsandwich

    She has an excellent website and explains clearly and logically why she desires Muslims to be banned from her business. I strongly support her!

      a shame they did not have a fatal accident on the range…

    I can imagine the Washington DC gun club in 1944 allowing Nazis to go for a few rounds at the gun range…………….

    Oh for Pete’s sake! Just have some friends wrap some towels on their heads and let them be captured in grainy shots by the security cameras. There are lots of ways you can screw their investigation.

    They can join. Hell give them their own entrance. Let them come through the door right down at the busy end of the range next to the berm that keeps the strays from leaving the range.
