Larry Pratt of Gun Owners of America wants to give an award to Jan Morgan, who bans Muslims from her gun range.

In an interview with Arizona-based radio host Josh Bernstein this week, Gun Owners of America director Larry Pratt praised Morgan, saying that she was “on very sound ground” with her Muslim ban.

“I know there will be a lot of people that will be outraged at that, but we don’t facilitate murderers and if you read the Quran, it’s an instruction to go kill people, lots of them,” Pratt said. “And there are Muslims that don’t buy into that, well, how do I know which one you are?”

All of which reminded Pratt that he had been meaning to start giving out a Gun Owners of America award and Morgan “ought to get it.”[su_csky_ad]

    Larry Pratt the executive director of Gun Owners of America, a firearms lobbying group which is in the back pocket of NRA is giving award to bigoted and ignorant people.

    He has founded a variety of organizations, including English First (lobbying organization), Gun Owners of America, U.S. Border Control, and Committee to Protect the Family.

    The day after the Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting, Larry Pratt stated:

    Gun control supporters have the blood of little children on their hands. Federal and state laws combined to ensure that no teacher, no administrator, no adult had a gun at the Newtown school where the children were murdered. This tragedy underscores the urgency of getting rid of gun bans in school zones. The only thing accomplished by gun free zones is to ensure that mass murderers can slay more before they are finally confronted by someone with a gun.”

    Nice job, NRA!

    Larry Pratt stands at the intersection of guns and Jesus, lobbying for absolutely unrestricted distribution of firearms while advocating a theocratic society based upon Old Testament civil and religious laws. A pivotal figure in the rise of right-wing militia, or “Patriot,” groups, he spoke at the notorious 1992 “Gathering of Christian Men” in Estes Park, Colo., where 160 neo-Nazis, Klan members, anti-Semitic Christian Identity adherents and others arguably laid the groundwork for the militia movement that would explode in 1994. He believes that white Christians must arm themselves for self-protection in the inevitable social implosions and riots that are soon to come.

    During his nearly 40-year tenure as executive director of Gun Owners of America (GOA), Larry Pratt has positioned the organization as a more radical alternative to the National Rifle Association (NRA). This radicalism is reflected not only by an absolute “no-compromise” stance on gun control, but also by Pratt’s ties to the militia movement, white supremacist organizations, and Christian theocrats. Nonetheless, with the support of GOA’s 300,000 members and a Beltway lobbying effort, Pratt continues to be heeded by some in Congress and the national media.

    Like any of them have ever read the Koran. The little they “know” about Islam has been spoon fed to them by fox and other rwnj sites.

    • forpeace October 17th, 2014 at 7:46 pm

      All of them claim that they had read Koran, and that makes me laugh really! lol

      I have doubts that any of them has ever read the Bible.

      • Larry Schmitt October 17th, 2014 at 7:47 pm

        Maybe the problem is that they can’t read at all.

        • forpeace October 17th, 2014 at 7:53 pm

          The problem is that they are illiterate and hateful.

    “well, how do I know which one you are?” Where have I heard that before?

    Not all white people are members of the Ku Klux Klan.

    But all members of the Klan are white.

    How is a black person supposed to know which one you are, especially if you are conservative.

    “… if you read the Quran, it’s an instruction to go kill people, lots of them,” Pratt said.

    I’ll bet anyone ten thousand dollars that this asshole has never read the Quran. And cannot cite the proof of his statement.
