The owners of an Eastern Kentucky gun shop made their feelings known this week, by hanging a sign that’s causing quite a bit of controversy. However, the Letcher County store owners said it’s their First Amendment Right to declare their business “Muslim free.”
“It just says Muslim Free gun shop,” said Jill Stidham. She and her husband own Jace Firearms. However, their few short words are causing quite a stir in Whitesburg.
“That’s not freedom of speech, that is discrimination,” said Anthony Stamper, as he walked past the store.
“He’s an American and he’s got his rights and he can do what he wants to,” added Jordan Reynolds as he walked past the business.
Right or wrong, the owners of Jace firearms said it’s their right to say what they want.
“We have the right to freedom of speech, we are trying to stand up for our country,” said Jill.
“I’m not racist, I don’t want to be discriminative of people. But, I agreed with the gentleman in Florida,” said William.
Stidham said after the mass shooting in Tennessee, where four Marines and a Navy sailor were killed, a Florida gun shop’s video went viral stating they were becoming a “Muslim free zone.” The Kentucky couple agreed with the decision and followed suit.
“I can’t tell them not to come in here. I am not going to do that. I am not going to threaten anybody or put anybody out, but I think it’s my right to say that I don’t want them in here,” said William.
FK – What group is letting the fundie ragheads and illegals enter our country because they want their votes? Who are our real enemies? Hint: They have white skin, were mostly born here and aren’t hiding in a cave on the other side of the world.
It’s time for those who claim to love Liberty to grow up and grow a backbone and prepare to do what will be required.
