Larry Pratt, the director of Gun Owners of America, has thrown in behind Jan Morgan, saying that she was on “very sound ground” when she made headlines last month after banning Muslims from her business.
Morgan, who owns an Arkansas gun range, carved out her 15 minutes of fame last month when she declared her business a “Muslim free zone,” echoing the fine accomplishments of great men and women past who declared their businesses free of “Colored” people. Morgan, writing on her website, said that:
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 will follow the directives in their Koran and kill here at home.
I suppose I could point to studies showing the average American in more danger from the whackjob right and their Christian terrorist allies, but it’s so much more amusing to let her look like an absolute idiot without correcting her.
In addition to owning a shooting range, she’s a national gun activist and has spoken at multiple events for the “religious liberty” group, the Liberty Council. She’s also spoken at Tea Party gatherings, including the poorly named “Two Million Bikers” rally against President Obama.
So of course Larry Pratt was going to agree. He said that:
I know there will be a lot of people that will be outraged at that, but we don’t facilitate murderers and if you read the Quran, it’s an instruction to go kill people, lots of them. And there are Muslims that don’t buy into that, well, how do I know which one you are?
The Bible instructs you to kill adulterers, fornicators, rape victims, and others. I know there are some Christians who don’t buy into that, but how do I know which one you are?
Pratt added that he had been meaning to give out a Gun Owners of American award and Morgan “ought to get it.”
