Rights group praises Royal Oak gun shop for stopping sale of skeleton targets wearing Muslim attire
by L.L. Brasier
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 in Royal Oak. CAIR-MI Executive Director Dawud Walid met 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.
The owner agreed.
