An Inverness, Florida man has declared this his gun store will not serve Muslim customers in the wake of last week’s attack on a Marine recruiting center in Chattanooga, Tennessee.
The New York Daily News said that Andy Hallinan, owner of Florida Gun Supply, released a YouTube video on Saturday in which he declared his intention to bar Muslims from the shop.
Backdropped by a Confederate Flag, Hallinan said, “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. I will not arm and train those who wish to do harm to my fellow patriots.”
By Tuesday morning, the video had racked up more than 35,000 views.
“We are in battle, patriots, but not only with Islamic extremism,” Hallinan said. “We’re also in battle against extreme political correctness that threatens our lives, because if we can’t call evil, evil for fear of offending people, then we can’t really defeat our enemies.”
The Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) filed a complaint with the Department of Justice regarding Hallinan’s declaration.
“These bigoted declarations are no different than ‘whites only’ signs posted in businesses during a period of our nation’s history that we had hoped was over,” said CAIR National Communications Director Ibrahim Hooper.

Trump emphatically explains that unmanned drones don’t have people in them as he rambles about Iran’s big ‘mistake’
During a joint press availability with Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, President Donald Trump opened up about the drone that was shot down by Iran.
According to Trump, drones are unmanned, a fact he felt was important to convey to those who haven't seen a Jason Bourne film or a spy thriller.
"Iran made a big mistake," Trump said. "This drone was in international waters clearly. We have it all documented. It’s documented scientifically, not just words. They made a big mistake."
He also said that he doesn't believe the decision to shoot the drone down likely came from the Iranian government in Tehran.
The View piles on Dem hopeful Marianne Williamson for ducking anti-vaxx questions: ‘You’re making people paranoid!’
Panelists on "The View" hammered Democratic presidential candidate Marianne Williamson for giving ambiguous answers about mandatory vaccinations.
The long-shot candidate has apologized for describing vaccination mandates as "draconian" and "Orwellian," saying she believes vaccines are important but understands public skepticism, and co-host Meghan McCain asked her to square those views with her advocacy for children.
"This sounds a lot like Trump, just so we're clear, this is his message," McCain said. "You're talking a lot about children of America, the children, how much you care about children, you also just came out as the anti-vaxxer candidate."
WATCH: Republican fumes at House hearing after being accused of not reading the Mueller report
House Democrats continue to investigate wrongdoing by the Trump campaign and administration that was revealed in the Mueller probe -- despite failing to pursue official impeachment proceedings.
That has not made the president's supporters very happy, as they continue to falsely claim that the Mueller report completely exonerates President Trump.
Rep. Steve Cohen (D-TN) thanked his constituents for showing up before going on an angry rant at Republicans who are eager to downplay the findings of the Russia probe.
"They have to see what I have to put up with. Week after week after week," Cohen said.
