Patriotic Gun Shop Owner Issues Blunt Message To Muslims After Chattanooga
July 21, 2015 9:48am PST
Last week, Americans everywhere were shocked when a Muslim extremist barged onto a Chattanooga military base and killed four U.S. Marines as well as a member of the Navy.
Unlike Obama, who has chosen to honor Muslims instead of the victims of the tragedy, gun-shop owner Andy Hallinan is making some “extreme changes.” On Saturday, Hallinan posted a video to Facebook in which he announced that he would no longer allow Muslims to be customers at his shop.
“Now I have a moral and legal responsibility to ensure the safety of all patriots in my community,” Hallinan said as he stood in front of a Confederate flag. “Effective immediately I’m declaring Florida Gun Supply a Muslim-free zone. I will not arm and train those who wish to do harm to my fellow patriots.”
“The jihadists said they would do it and they have,” he continued, according to Conservative Tribune. “They said they would live among us, and they do.”
Hallinan went on to say that anyone who says that Islam “is not evil” is lying. He also announced that he will now be offering free gun lessons and access to his shooting range with no charge for those who to obtain a concealed carry permit.
“We want the public to be able to go out and practice in case we are ever called upon to defend our lives and / or the community,” Hallinan said.
The Council on American-Islamic Relations has already reported Hallinan to the Department of Justice, claiming that violating the civil rights of Muslims by refusing to serve them. Hallinan, however, says that he has the right to “deny service to anyone for any reason,” and promised that he is not afraid to ask his customers if they are Muslims.
