    Gun shop stops selling target skeletons wearing turban and robe after complaints from Muslim rights group


    A gun store in Royal Oak, Mich., is being praised by the local chapter of a Muslim rights group after agreeing to stop selling targets that depict an AK-47-wielding skeleton in a turban and robe.The Detroit Free Press reports that Dawud Walid, executive director of the Michigan chapter of the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR-MI), voiced his concern to Target Sports about the gun-range targets, fearing they may cause gun owners to view any Muslim in traditional garb as an enemy.

    Geez... those targets don't even have a face, just clothing. "Bad guys" come in all genders, shapes, sizes, races, religions, and wardrobes. Among other things a certain large police department is known to have used a target of a pregnant woman with a gun. So Jenna, shoot or don't shoot?

    And we keep caving in to their bull shit.
    'Political Correctness is a doctrine fostered by a
    delusional, illogical liberal minority, and rabidly
    promoted by an unscrupulous mainstream media, which
    holds forth the proposition that it is entirely
    possible to pick up a turd by the clean end!'

    A target nearly everyone can agree on

    I like the Pierce Morgan example, except it's too wholly implausible. This is a guest who arms himself not with a gun, and not even particularly well with his own words, but rather with our Constitution..torn and lost after the First Amendment. Even if he were to rob a liquor store at gunpoint he'd have a staffer from the Daily Mirror do it for him. No, any accurate Pierce silhouette would be familiar to deer hunters...

    ...white ass flapping in the wind in frantic retreat.

    Mocking an individual I find disgusting, that passes my test.
