Jan Morgan, owner and operator of Arkansas-based Gun Cave Indoor Firing Range, said business has been booming since her September ban of Muslims at her facility — a decision she said was a matter of public safety.

Ms. Morgan said her range business has “quadrupled” since she first announced the ban, Fox News reported. Subsequent threats of lawsuits that cropped up have also drifted away, she said.

“We are dealing in lethal firearms,” Ms. Morgan told Fox News. “I’m not going to let a Nazi shoot in here, or a Ku Klux Klan member in here, either.”

The American-Islamic Relations recently called on Attorney General Eric Holder to look into her ban as a case of racial and religious discrimination, accusing Ms. Morgan of fueling “a hostile environment for ordinary Muslims in Arkansas,” Fox News reported.

But Ms. Morgan said she’s not backing down, claiming such lawsuit threats have no teeth because Islam is not a genuine religion worthy of constitutional protections and that many Muslims want to kill people like her.

Some attorneys agree that she stands on firm legal ground, particularly if she maintains her range is private, which would exempt it from certain federal civil rights regulations, Fox reported.
