The owner of a gun store in South Florida got a big win against supporters of Muslim terrorism last week. Store owner Andy Hallinan went viral after the murder of armed forces recruiters in Chattanooga, Tennessee earlier this year.
Hallinan went viral earlier this year when he declared his Inverness, Florida, store a “Muslim-free zone” in the wake of the shooting of four servicemen in Chattanooga, Tennessee, by a Muslim extremist.
“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 said. “I will not arm and train those who wish to do harm to my fellow patriots.”
U.S. District Judge Beth Bloom ruled, in a case brought by the terrorist funding organization CAIR, that they couldn’t show harm. CAIR has 30 days to appeal the ruling and they likely will.
Hallinan was defended by the American Freedom Law Center.
AFLC Senior Counsel David Yerushalmi said, “This dismissal was yet another AFLC victory against CAIR and its jihadi lawfare against patriotic Americans across the country. This victory follows on the heels of a recent victory against CAIR in a Michigan federal court where CAIR’s subpoenas were quashed and CAIR’s nefarious client sanctioned for abusive practices.”
He continued, “CAIR was born from a jihadi terrorist conspiracy, and it has done little to distance itself from those bona fides. CAIR is on notice: if you attempt to use the courts to conduct your civilizational jihad, AFLC will be there to defend law-abiding, patriotic Americans and our nation’s national security. We will match and defeat your civilization jihad with our constitutional lawfare in every courtroom across the nation.”
Let’s hope other gun stores take up charge and refuse to arm terrorists and those who support them.
