    Its not a restaurant, its a gun range.

    Very easy to prove someone is a distraction, safety issue and or threat to other's wellbeing

    If the customer was being combative they can absolutely ask him to leave. If his presence negatively impacts the well-being of other customers or employees they can refuse to do business with him.

    It's definitely a fine line though.

    Seems like that argument becomes more difficult to make when you have a sign saying your establishment is a Muslim free area and the guy you happen to kick out is Muslim.

    Gun range can get fucked for all I CAIR.

    That I understand, but when someone talks about the right to refuse they are almost always talking about the notion that a business can refuse people for any reason.

    Yes, but that is different then the notion of the right to refuse someone of whatever reason.

    You're really, really obviously violating the Civil Rights Act by posting a 'no X religious group here' sign. That was dumb as hell. They deserve whatever happens to them.

    Would you be ok with a business having a "no christians" sign? Or "no white people" ?

    Private businesses should be able to do whatever they want as regards to doing business with people

    For better or for worse that hasn't been the case for some time now.

    I get that . . . but how would they have guessed he was Muslim had he not made a point to tell them about it?

    I wasn't advocating being able to refuse someone service "just because".

    I honestly wouldn't give it much thought either way. It could say no Christians, Muslims only, women only, no men, no dads, no beards, no hippies, etc. I could probably find a way to make it through life without giving a business like that my money.

    Oktaha is a town of 390 people. I am guessing there is not a lot of competition to go to instead in that town.

    The guy wasn't refused service until he made a stink about their sign and became belligerent from what I've read. He could've been provided whatever service he was seeking had he not made an issue about the sign. I understand why he did, but I haven't seen where he was told to leave because he was Muslim. Maybe he was . . . Oktaha is out in the sticks, I'm not sure why the sign was put up. It's not like there are tons of Muslims around that area.

    For all I know it could've been a joke or a sign posted just to make a discussion point or who knows why . . .

    So? There likely isn't a ton of businesses there in the first place.

    If you're limiting your range of service to Oktaha for anything you're not very smart. There are thousands of similar small towns in Oklahoma . . . many with no stop lights and one or two cops (if that). It's not uncommon to go to a completely different county for business or to visit a competitor.
