Islamic group praises Royal Oak gun shop for ending sale of targets in Muslim attire
Detroit Free Press
A local chapter of a national Islamic civil liberties group is praising the decision of a Royal Oak gun shop to discontinue selling targets of a skeleton wearing traditional Muslim attire.
The Michigan chapter of the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR-MI) welcomed the decision by Target Sports.
CAIR-MI Executive Director Dawud Walid met Wednesday with the owner of Target Sports to voice concern that a gun range target that depicts a skeleton with a long beard dressed in a turban and robe may provoke gun owners to view local Muslims who wear such garb as enemies.
Uh, yeah. Just the other day, I saw a skeleton walking down the street in a turban and carrying an AK-47; acting all suspicious, and stuff. Happens all the time around here. /sarcasm
The owner agreed.
Walid said he had received a complaint about the targets Wednesday morning, and walked into the gun store and bought two of the targets before introducing himself and expressing his concerns.
“He gave us a verbal promise to stop selling the targets,” Walid said. “It was an extremely non-hostile meeting.”
The targets, manufactured by Thompson Targets in Canton, Ohio, are shipped throughout the country, and Walid was checking with other gun shops in metro Detroit to see whether they are carrying them.
“Our concern isn’t primarily being offended,” he said. “It’s a safety issue. In metro Detroit, there are law-abiding, peaceful Muslims walking the streets of Hamtramck and Detroit who are dressed like this in the target. It is problematic. There seems to be a dehumanization of Muslims.”
Yeah, it’s a “safety” issue. R-i-i-i-g-h-t.
You know, there seems to be a dehumanization of redneck farmer zombies, too!
Better get those pulled off the market, also. Don’t want any law-abiding, peaceful farmers getting shot at!:
Of course, CAIR didn’t see fit to mention that they, themselves support terrorists…
