    Perhaps he did. However the business is stupid for posting a "Muslim Free Establishment" sign. The business does not have a leg to stand on here.

    Sounds like he recognized something fundamentally un-American and went out of his way to bring attention to it.

    Good on him.

    If they refused him service solely because he is Muslim sure . . . if he confronted them about their sign for the sole purpose of causing an issue I totally understand his frustration, but if the confrontation escalated to the point that folks felt unsafe I'm ok with them asking him to leave.

    Very true. If he went in and was loud and belligerent that is a different story. I have the feeling that is not the case.

    Oktaha is a pretty out of the way place. He'd have to be making a specific effort to go and express his issues with their sign . . . maybe @Overpressure is correct. Small town Oklahoma is full of odd folks and weird business practices anyway.

    Regardless, the business is still very much in the wrong.

    Time for the range owner to learn an expensive lesson.

    "A similar lawsuit was filed by CAIR last year against a gun shop in Florida, but that case was dismissed by a federal judge who determined CAIR could not prove its members were harmed by the store's Muslim-free policy, Henderson said."

    Of course he's affiliated with CAIR.

    Sounds like he was looking for trouble in the same way that uppity Rosa Parks was.

    Maybe he saw the sign and figured it would be a great opportunity to sue and make a buck. Clever, if very risky.

    I hate CAIR but a business putting up a sign like that is simply asking to, rightfully, get sued.

    For those saying he was looking for trouble, so what? That's what sit ins during the civil rights movement were; intentionally defying unjust rules for the sake of bringing attention to and challenging them.

    You would think a gun range would be very friendly to American Military members. I guess bigotry is more important than nationalism.

    Someone looking for trouble

    The gun range will have to waste a bunch of loot but will prevail on right to refuse more than likely

    Don't know what the business thought the sign said . . . but what it really said was "free money"

    There is no right to refuse.
