Almost against my will I have been following the tale of Jan Morgan, a proud gun range owner and public speaker on run rights who set the internet ablaze with her blog post, Why I Want My Range to be a Muslim Free Zone. In it she claimed that she'd repeatedly received death threats from Muslims over her views on their religion and that she felt arming them and allowing them to practice with firearms was detrimental to the safety of Americans.
I'm not really here to point out the endless parade of fallacies and flaws in Morgan's "argument". That it is bigoted drivel is pretty much a given, not to mention that her proposal to ban members of a federally recognized religion is blatantly illegal. I was surprised to see that she'd doubled down and returned to her favorite topic; that Muslims were inherently violent and dangerous because of certain passages in the Koran, which of course all 1.6 billion Muslims in their more than 20,000 denominations all follow absolutely literally and without any disparity in interpretation.
"I understand that not all muslims [sic] are terrorists," said Morgan in her initial post. "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."
I thought it would be fun to test Morgan's theory.More »
