A Florida gun store operator has banned Muslims from his establishment, arguing that he has a right to deny service to anyone he considers a threat.
Andy Hallinan made his decision after the shootings at military installations in Chattanooga, Tenn., last week.
Florida Gun Supply of Inverness, Fla., was declared a “Muslim-free zone” in a video Hallinan posted online over the weekend.
And just one day later, Barack Obama is taking revenge on behalf of his Muslim buddies.
As Conservative Review reported, Obama’s Department of Justice today announced that it would launch a civil rights investigation into Hallinan’s establishment.
That’s right, it took five days, and the anger of millions of Americans for Obama to finally order U.S. flags be flown at half-staff on behalf the slain heroes of Chattanooga — but less than 24 hours for Obama to do the bidding of his radical Muslim friends at CAIR.
And isn’t this just what you would expect from the Obama administration: a radical Islamic extremist kills five American servicemen and the Pentagon still says no guns allowed to defend them, and suggests that recruiting offices keep their window blinds closed from now on. In other words — our soldiers are on their own.
But if there’s even a hint that a single Muslim could possibly see his civil rights violated at some indeterminate point in the future, the entire resources of the Federal government are placed at their disposal.
“I have a moral and legal responsibility to ensure the safety of all patriots in my community, and so effective immediately, I’m declaring Florida Gun Supply as a Muslim-free zone,” Hallinan announced in a video posted to Facebook. “I will not arm and train those who wish to do harm to my fellow patriots.”
“I’m not going to be asking every person who walks in what their religious background is. That’s not my business,” Hallinan told WFLA. “But I do have the right to deny firearms and training to anyone I deem as a threat.”
As George Upper of CR said:
It’s past time for patriots like Hallinan to step up and speak their consciences. If his words are truly intolerant or, as Obama himself might say, on the wrong side of history, then the free market will prove that out by negatively impacting Hallinan’s bottom line as consumers choose to stop doing business with him.
But that is probably not the case — and the Obama Justice Department may actually feel pressure to intervene before the free market proves who really is on the wrong side of history.
