Shortly after a Muslim activism group attempted to sue a Florida gun shop owner over his anti-Muslim rhetoric, it seems their case is already dead in the water.
A U.S. district court has thrown out a lawsuit against a Florida gun store owner, Andy Hallinan, owner of Florida Gun Supply. The Council on American-Islamic Relations, or CAIR, brought the lawsuit against Hallinan for establishing a “Muslim-free Zone” at his gun store.
CAIR sued Hallinan alleging religious discrimination, claiming that Muslims were not allowed to purchase guns at Florida Gun Supply. The case was brought about when Hallinan used Youtube as a medium to announce that he would not arm terrorists who were intent on harming Americans. The YouTube video, where Hallinan makes his case, can be seen by clicking here.
The reason the judge threw out the case was the fact that CAIR had not proved that its organization nor any of its constituents were harmed as a result of the establishment of Hallinan’s “Muslim-free Zone.” According to Fox13 News, Judge Beth Bloom said CAIR, “insufficiently alleged imminent harm,” and that, “There are simply no facts grounding the assertion that Plaintiff (CAIR) and/or one of its constituents will be harmed.”
Free speech wins again, much to the embarrassment of The Council on American-Islamic Relations. Next time they try to attack an American’s right to free thought, they might make sure someone was actually harmed in the process.
