A federal judge has tossed a lawsuit against an Inverness gun shop owner who declared his store a Muslim-free zone.
CAIR Florida, which is the Council on American-Islamic Relations Florida, announced the lawsuit against the Florida Gun Supply in July. The organization said the Muslim-free zone amounted to religious discrimination, violating the Civil Rights Act of 1964.
The suit had demanded an injunction against Florida Gun Supply to prohibit it from discriminating against Muslims and others on the basis of religion. "American Muslims have a right to browse and purchase guns, take classes on gun safety and shoot guns at a range without having to be profiled and discriminated," Hassan Shibly, Chief Executive Director of CAIR Florida, said at the time the suit was filed.
