Fox News Analyst Jan Morgan made a guest appearance at the American Legion in Acorn last night [Thursday, May 19, 2016] in an event hosted by the Polk County Tea Party. Morgan, a gun range owner in Hot Springs, is a gun rights and 2nd Amendment activist, an NRA Certified Firearms Instructor, NRA Certified Range Safety Officer, State Police Certified Concealed Carry Instructor, founder of Armed American Woman, a national firearms training program for women.
Morgan began her speech, for the more than one hundred attendees, talking about politics, which she noted is not her favorite subject, but goes hand-in-hand with the issues she is most passionate about. She stated she is quite opposed to Hillary Clinton’s views on gun control, citing that Clinton wishes to implement gun laws similar to Australia’s. Something that Morgan says any pistol-packing, red-blooded American should pay attention to.
Morgan currently backs presidential candidate, Donald Trump, and agrees with his views on gun rights.
The 2nd Amendment was Morgan’s main topic of the evening and used that time to encourage everyone to become educated and involved in today’s gun rights issues to maintain control of their firearms.
Morgan’s gun range, Gun Cave Shooting Range, in Hot Springs, came under fire after she banned Muslims from her business, citing that Muslims aren’t a religion protected by the Constitution, but a terrorist organization that aims to kill all those who do not hold the same religious values.
In September 2014, Morgan penned an article titled, Why I Want My Range to be a Muslim Free Zone. In the article she states, “The Koran, which I have read and studied thoroughly and which Muslims align themselves with, contains 109 verses commanding hate, murder and terror against all human beings who refuse to submit or convert to Islam.” She lists other reasons as: having her own life threatened by Muslims in response to publishing those verses from the Koran, having 35 Islamic Terrorist Training Camps on American soil, and Muslims involved with ISIS or Al Qaeda threaten to kill innocent Americans. “I understand that not all Muslims are terrorists. I also believe there are as many Muslims who do not know what is in their Koran as there are Christians who do not know what is in their Bible. However, I hold adults accountable for the religion or organizations they align themselves with. Since I have no way of discerning which Muslims will or will not kill in the name of their religion and the commands in their Koran, I choose to err on the side of caution for the safety of my patrons.”
That article landed Morgan on a segment of Fox Business’ The Intelligence Report. She has since appeared as a weekly analyst each Tuesday on Fox Business as a gun rights activist, and has been the keynote speaker at hundreds of events across the country.
After the event, Morgan said, “Something happened to me tonight that was a first. It was shocking and humbling. I’ve delivered speeches at events across this nation, but tonight was the first time I was given a standing ovation before I spoke a word…
Made me tear up.”
