When I wrote about why I no longer want islamists in my indoor shooting range, I was called vile names, told I should kill myself, smeared and attacked from every angle.

However, those people fail to realize that when you have had your life threatened repeatedly by people who worship Muhammad, and, you know the level of violence that devout islamists are capable of, (as we all saw recently in Oklahoma) the petty name calling, smears, and personal attacks seem insignificant.

The fact is…I have heard from literally thousands of people from around the world.. many business owners in America who tell me they feel exactly the same way I do… yet they remain quiet out of fear. I have heard from thousands of people around the country who are supportive of my position.

To understand why I arrived at my position, you must first take in to consideration the nature of my business.

This is not a coffee and donut shop. This is a live fire indoor shooting range. People come here to buy, rent, and shoot lethal weapons.

In the range, people are shooting guns in close proximity to each other, so my patrons depend on me and my discretion regarding who I allow to shoot beside them.
One mistake in judgement on my part could cost innocent people their lives.

The primary reasons I do not want devout islamists shooting at my range are listed:

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.
Read those verses of violence HERE at this link: https://www.facebook.com/notes/jan-morgan/islamverses-from-the-quran-evidence-that-islam-is-clearly-and-concisely-evil-vio/10150288799819261

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.
See a common thread here?

4) Two Muslims walked in to my range last week with allah akbar ring tone and message alert tones on their smart phones. They spoke very little english, one did not have proof of U.S. citizenship, yet they wanted to rent and shoot guns. They were constantly glancing toward the cameras in the range, then looking at each other and speaking in their own language.
Their behavior was so strange, it frightened my patrons. No one would enter the range to shoot while they were there. Some of my customers left.
(can you blame them?)

5) * 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 may follow the directives in their Koran and kill here at home.

6) I have a federal firearms licence… The ATF informed us when we received the license that if we feel any reason for concern about selling someone a firearm, even sense that something is not right about an individual, or if we are concerned about that persons mental state, even if they pass a background check, we do not have to sell that person a gun. Two different ATF agents stressed that it is better to err on the side of caution.
In other words, a federal agency has given FFL’s discretion on firearms deals. An FFL can turn people away if there is any concern about their behavior and or indications that the person might use the firearm in the commission of a crime.

7) I understand that not all muslims are terrorists. I also believe there are as many Muslims who do not know what is in their Koran as there are Christians who do not know what is in their Bible.
Since I have no way of discerning which muslims will or will not kill in the name of their religion and the commands in their koran, I choose to err on the side of caution for the safety of my patrons, just as I would anyone else who aligns himself with an organization that commands him to commit crimes against innocent people.

8) On the issue of religious discrimination:
I view Islam as a theocracy, not a religion. Islam is the union of political, legal, and religious ideologies. In other words, law, religion and state are forged together to form what Muslims refer to as “The Nation of Islam.”
It is given the sovereign qualities of a nation with clerics in the governing body and Sharia law all in one. This is a Theocracy, not a religion.
The US Constitution does not protect a theocracy.
The 1st Amendment is very specific about protecting the rights of individuals from the government, as it concerns the practice of religions, not theocracies.
It clearly differentiates between government and religion. Again protecting the individual’s religious beliefs and practices from (the state) government.
In Islam religion and state are one.
We are a Nation governed by laws, the U.S. Constitution. We are not a Nation that is governed by religion, politicians or clerics.
How then can Islam be protected by the U.S. Constitution?

9) Islam allows Muslims to kill their own children, (honor killing) if the behavior of those children embarrasses or dishonors the family name. (which has already occurred on American soil)
Why would I allow people (whose religion allows them 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.

10) In the 14 hundred year history of Islam, muslims have murdered over 270 million people.
Since 9/11 muslims have committed over 21 thousand deadly terror attacks world wide.
There are currently 35 Islamic terror training camps on American soil.
(ref: Fox News/See news story here)

In summary, people who shoot at my range come from all religious backgrounds… some are atheists… I do not care about their religious beliefs until or unless those beliefs command them to commit violent crimes against innocent people and I witness those crimes increasing, as we all have lately.

If you had received death threats by muslims, would you want the government telling you that you had to allow them in to your home or business and hand them a loaded gun?

I will do whatever is necessary to provide a safe environment for my customers.
It is not a choice… It is my responsibility.

    Since you aren’t aware of the basic fact that Muslims workshop God (the English translation Allah) and not “Muhammad” than I think it’s pretty safe to assume that you aren’t that well informed about Islam and its practitioners. Therefore you should consider whether your false assumptions have led you to misinformed conclusions.

    • hingedthinker

      All People worship God in all the religion. But in Islam it is mandatory to say the Mohammad is a Prophet of God.
      If some body believes in God or Allah but do not consider Mohammad is a Prophet of God or Allah can not be Muslim.
      In directly it is Mohammad who determines the religion of a person.

    • SeanInNYC

      Guest, your ignorance is impressive. Muslims are required to emulate Mohammed and his behavior, and do what he said they should do. Everything about Mohammed is so sacred and devout to Muslims that it is just as good as “worship”. If you want to nit-pick a semantic point and ignore all the truth about the evils of Islam, that’s your right. But you sound like an utter ignoramus.

      It is also pretty safe to ignore her assumption as she is not well informed about Islam.

    • dontdoitagain

      Oh of course. All those beheadings, bombings, honor killings, the slave trade, the genital mutilations, all of that; those are false information stories, videos and news reports about the muslim religion. It’s all just a smear campaign against the innocent practitioners of this religious cult right? That might have worked before the information age, but this bloodthirsty cult has been outed. Misinformed, with the proof shoved in our faces on a daily basis? lol

    The “religion of peace.” or so they claim…

    http://www.thereligionofpeace.com/quran/023-violence.htm

  • Jack Runnels

    This is so sad. You claim to have read the Quran. I wonder if you’ve read a Bible?

    The Bible contains hundreds more violent verses than the Quran.

    The Quran demands killing of those who follow other religions!! Well, guess what? So does the Bible:

    1) 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. Your hand shall be the first raised to slay him; the rest of the people shall join in with you. You shall stone him to death, because he sought to lead you astray from the Lord, your God, who brought you out of the land of Egypt, that place of slavery. And all Israel, hearing of this, shall fear and never do such evil as this in your midst. (Deuteronomy 13:7-12 NAB)

    2) Suppose a man or woman among you, in one of your towns that the LORD your God is giving you, has done evil in the sight of the LORD your God and has violated the covenant by serving other gods or by worshiping the sun, the moon, or any of the forces of heaven, which I have strictly forbidden. When you hear about it, investigate the matter thoroughly. If it is true that this detestable thing has been done in Israel, then that man or woman must be taken to the gates of the town and stoned to death. (Deuteronomy 17:2-5 NLT)

    You talk about the danger of Muslim terrorists. Since 9/11, there have been more people killed by non-Muslim terrorists than Muslim terrorists. 9/11 was the exception, not the rule.

    Your claim that Islam is not a religion, but some sort of government is laughable.

    You state that Islam allows Muslims to kill their own children if those children embarrass or dishonor the family name. I guess your not aware of the fact that Deuteronomy 21:18-21 demands that unruly children be stoned to death: “If someone has a stubborn and rebellious son who does not obey his father and mother and will not listen to them when they discipline him, his father and mother shall take hold of him and bring him to the elders at the gate of his town. They shall say to the elders, “This son of ours is stubborn and rebellious. He will not obey us. He is a glutton and a drunkard.” Then all the men of his town are to stone him to death. You must purge the evil from among you. All Israel will hear of it and be afraid.”

    There are over a billion Muslims in the world… only a small percentage of which are terrorists. Most of the terrorist activity in the U.S. in recent years has not come from Muslims, but from radical Christianists, white supremacists and far-right militia groups. If anything, you should refuse service to white Christians with guns.

    The figure of 270 million people killed by Islam is made up. And what is the point of looking at how many people Muslims killed over the centuries? Do we really want to start talking about how many people were killed in the name of Christianity? Millions of people were killed in the name of Christianity.

    You mention “35 Islamic terror training camps”. How many non-Muslims also train in paramilitary camps across the Unitied States? Thousands. Since most of those are right wing white men who claim to be Christian, I guess you should stop providing service to conservative Chrisitan men, just to be on the safe side.

    There are a lot of reasons for a rational person to criticize Islam. But there are just as many reasons for a rational person to criticize Christianity. My hope is that rational people will truly become informed about both religions and make decisions about them and their adherents based on reason and logic, not ignorance and fear.

    • Mary Brown

      And you do not know the bible and Christianity, the old testament is overridden by the new testament that is very much non violent.

      • closetatheist

        Oh good, I’m glad humans were only commanded to commit genocide, stonings, and mutilations for a few centuries before God changed His mind. Nothing could make more sense than that, right?!

        • PPP

          God did not change the mind. God tried to change the mid of human being gradually for the atonement.
          The final atonement came by the grace.

          • closetatheist

            we know yahweh commanded genocide several times – and that it was racially an religiously motivated – if yahweh didnt change his mind then that means genocide on racial and religious grounds is still ok?

          • SeanInNYC

            Oh, it’s you again, LOL. How about you pick up that awful Bible you hate so much and actually READ what you clearly have no understanding of. I’m sure left-wing talking points are fun, but they are prone to revealing the ignorance of the regurgitator.

          • closetatheist

            I did read it. That’s why I’m aware of the disgusting parts that preachers avoid on Sundays. You have done nothing to refute my claims, making me think that you’re, in fact, very aware of those nasty bits. Your attempt to insult me are noted, but they have nothing to do with the matter at hand.

        • SeanInNYC

          The bible, specifically the old testament, are re-telling of stories of things that happened. They are not direct commandments by God, or his divine and infallible representative on earth, to murder/ enslave/ rape all who do not submit to his will. That would be Islam.

          This would have been pretty obvious to anyone with even a rudimentary understanding of of Christian teaching. I can understand you being entirely ignorant about Islam, as most westerners are. But man, you don’t seem to know a thing about ANY religion, other than you don’t like any of them. LOL. The epitome of ignorance: hating that which you have no understanding.

          And the bitter irony, of course, is your taking the side of a murderous death cult and criticizing a genuine religion of peace, Christianity.

          • closetatheist

            since the parts where yahweh specifically commands murder or is reported to be behind slaughter are retellings of things that actually happened that leaves us…where? oh right, that yahweh is responsible for and approves of murder and genocide. Im sure your aware of the laws yahweh set forth concerning rape? right? and his blessing on the rapes of thousands of foreign sex slaves? Christianity has been neutralized by the “evils of secularism” b

            “christian teaching” likes to separate yahweh from responsibility for the awful atrocities carried out with his blessing. its not hard to see behind the curtain if youre not afraid to look.

        • dontdoitagain

          Are you trying to conflate the bloodthirsty muslim religion with the peaceful Christian religion? Look around you. Who is responsible for the atrocities commited in the name of God TODAY, RIGHT NOW? You claim to be an athiest. So why are you not looking at the “fruit” of religions and forming a cogent argument?

          • closetatheist

            I’m not going off on a tangent about Islam because the original matter at hand in this post was violence in Christianity. If the “fruit” that a religion produces is so important to you why aren’t you interested in what Christianity produces? I mean, you’d want to know if your religion was a apple bad, right? For now, we’ll pretend that past atrocities carried out by Christians don’t matter, but, the fact is, Christianity has produced violent fruit in modern times: Ireland is still rocked by Christian violence, LGTB people have been viciously beaten (and murdered) by Christians, abortion clinics bombed, and it is the author of the most hateful form of anti-Semitism. Thankfully, Christianity has become less violent over the last few centuries because it has been forced to reconcile itself with the effects of the Enlightenment Era – Islam has not had that opportunity yet.

            My point is not that violence does not happen within Islam, my point is that Christianity and Islam are brothers. They are guilty of inspiring the same kind of hatred and the same persecutions and tortures. As such, we should understand that Islam can and should be reformed instead of spitefully stamped or marginalized:*which would do nothing but give Muslims more justifications for violence.* The religion needs to be challenged internally and externally by people who understand what justice, empathy, and discrimination mean.

            Pulling crap like this does nothing but inflame anger on both sides. This writer is pretending she’s solving a problem, but what she’s doing is creating more.

          • dontdoitagain

            Islam has had the same amount of time as anything else to come to the “enlightenment era” whatever that is. They have not become any more enlightened after all these centuries, why would you think that this can happen now? I do spitefully(?) stamp that cult and want to marginalize them, just as any other civilized society would.

            In today’s world I do see what christianity produces. CHARITY and good will toward men. I just have trouble believing in any God, so maybe it’s easier to see things more clearly. I don’t believe that a superior being would ask his/her followers to cut people’s heads off. It makes no sense to me.

            Nothing is needed to give muslims “justification” for violence. Nothing justifies violence. These people get violent for zero reasons. If you mean that they can have more phony reasons to justify their violence then maybe. Anything sets them off, there is no discourse with many (most) of them. I can’t condone their violence for any reason. Pointing out the few incidents of violence allegedly from christians certainly doesn’t give credence to your remarks.

            The question to ask yourself is; As a group, are christians violence prone? Do we have them running amuck all over the world and beheading people? Do we have christians forcing their religion on everybody and making them live under a certain set of laws peculiar to their own religion? Does their bible instruct them to kill or enslave people who don’t believe as they do? You get my drift.

    • PPP

      Do you know there are No-Go Zones in Europe. The No-Go Zone is not created by Conservative Christian. The No-Go zones are sign boards stating ” Sharia is Governed Here”.

      The conservative Christians who used to Govern were uprooted. This is not the case with Islam.

      You can visit Lebanon, Syria where still people tell the story of Killing by Crusades. They keep live the history.
      In other regions also people try to keep the history of killing by Muslim invaders. In Koran all the war fought by Mohammad were offensive not defensive. However, Islamic scholars term those wars as defensive.

      India was invaded by Muslim force many time. Let them show from history a single offensive against Islamic force.

      Now dear friend the bible quote is for the people of that time. Now you are under the grace of Jesus Christ. Those verses are to show the linkage from Abraham to Jesus. Every step there is some new turn of God to save Mankind. The final sacrifice is over. So now we are under the protection of Blood of Jesus.

      But Muslims believe that the word of Koran is final and for the eternity. Bible never mentioned that the action and words are for eternity. Bible shows the work of God to send Jesus Christ for the salvation.

    • SeanInNYC

      The old testament, with a notable exception being the Ten Commandments, are the laws of men inspired by God, so subject to interpretation and context. This is common knowledge and no one pretends or thinks otherwise (unless trying to justify Islam’s savage, murderous nature). The Quran, on the other hand, is the LITERAL WORD OF ALLAH told to Mohammed by the Archangel Gabrield (Jibril). Every single word. letter and punctuation mark is sacrosanct and indisputable. As are the Hadiths, the teachings and actions of Mohammed from his many years of war, conquest, murder, theft, slavery and mass rape AFTER giving Muslims the Quran. Mohammed is, to Muslims, PERFECT, and every thing that he is recorded having done or said in the Hadiths is undeniably what Allah wanted done on earth, since Mohammed is his Messenger, and perfect. This is not some bogus idea that westerners made up: it’s what the Muslim theologians say and have always said.

      So do yourself a favor and read the Hadiths and the Quran (really just the Hadiths, as they are by far the inspiration of the worst behavior of Muslims, i.e., the behavior and teachings of Mohammed himself), and you won’t sound like such an ignorant fool next time.

    • dontdoitagain

      Yeah right. Christians are known for their murderous rampages in Dearborne, London, NYC and all over the world wherever Christians are in large groups. You point to bible verses from the old testament like they are practiced today. Start in the new testament and read the ten commandments. I wear red and I cut my hair. No Christians have stoned me to death (obviously) and none have even suggested I should be. As opposed to the islam followers who definitely would like to kill me for my supposed transgressions…TODAY. Not over 2,000 years ago.

    • Even before being fulfilled with the coming of the Christ, all of the “alleged” heinous crimes and punishments, are tempered by verses that are conveniently left out, as well as placed in context of Hebrew society. Some states in the US have the death penalty, does everyone get the death penalty? No? How can this be, it’s the law, it’s on the books…Oh, yeah context, other laws, etc.

      Idiocy.

  • closetatheist

    In the words of Ashishpal Singh:
    “Ugh, I know what you mean, I get really uncomfortable whenever I see a white man walk into a movie theatre or elementary school.”

    And I thought the standard argument for mass gun ownership was that it was an effective way to dissuade others from misusing guns? Is that not holding up? I’m confused.

    Good girl!

  • Lina

    Bravo Jan, this article isn’t as horrendous as your last one. Though of course, you still manage provide no credible sources and seems to base all your facts off of twisted knowledge. Please tell me what is the point of this article. It’s a cluttered mess with no real structure, you sound like a flustered little girl desperately wanting to give someone a bad reputation. Throwing out “facts” that don’t support your statement, you could do so much better. “Muslims have murdered more than 270 million people since Islam has begun, blah blah blah!! #Idon’tKnowWhatTheHellimSaying” Your sources? And if we are going to point out murders done by the Muslims (which now are being done with the help of the CIA) let’s not forget that every religious group has had its own bloody history. The Catholics, the Christians, and today the Jews who are brutally killing Palestinians and have been doing so since 1948. I also think we should all kindly look at what America has done 🙂 The unnecessary wars conducted by America have spilt tons of innocent blood, America hasn’t been around that long yet the country has earned a disgraceful name. So don’t get me started on our so called bloody history. And here is another problem. “OMG!!! 911! Shootings! Muslims can’t be trusted!!” So a few bad apples make the rest of the bunch sour? Idiotic logic. Majority of shootings in America aren’t don’t by Muslims, your fear is completely irrational. And you know what’s even stupider? When a few Muslims commit murder they are automatically labelled as terrorists whereas a “normal” shooter is labelled as mentally ill.

    The media just wishes to portray Islam in a negative light by saying that every Muslim criminal kills for god, when in reality that isn’t the case. Btw, Islam IS a religion. We people are not entitled to agree with your weak views. Sorry Jan, you’ve still failed to give REAl evidence to prove Islam is a religion of violence. All you know how to do is cherry pick verses while using every fallacy known to man.

  • Sean Wass

    I am in disbelief by the racism and bigotry I see on your pages. Your threats and claims against Muslims are stupid and baseless. Here’s a bit of food for thought:

    Christians have killed many, many more people in the name of religion than Muslims. Have you ever heard of the Crusades? They were a lot worse than ISIS.

    The Bible is just as violent and sexist as the Koran. Have you read the Bible? Ever hear of King Saul? If you say that all Muslims follow every horrid detail in the Koran, you can’t be hypocritical and say Christians don’t do the same.

    Saying that Muslims did 9/11 is exactly like saying Christians did the Holocaust. It’s true! Hitler, and the entire Nazi party was Christian. Obviously the actions of Nazi Germany don’t define all Christians, so it is completely illogical to think 9/11 defines all Muslims.

    Banning Muslim people from your establishment not only is morally despicable, it is against the Constitution! And you call yourself a supporter of the Constitution.

    You are a bigoted person. I am amazed this horseshit is accepted in today’s society.

    • Doug Podaima

      Sean believe what you want. Most people know and feel that most Muslims are terrorists. Call us ignorant but when we see all the terrorism how can we feel otherwise? Why do you not go live there yourself? Why stay in America….I am sure most of us would buy your plane ticket.
