A gun range owner who in 2014 banned Muslims from her business as a matter of ‘public safety’ has announced that she now intends to stand for governor in the US state of Arkansas.

Republican Jan Morgan officially announced her candidacy at a New Year’s Eve event in her hometown of Hot Springs, Arkansas. She will be challenging incumbent Republican Governor Asa Hutchinson in May.

Ms Morgan, who has served as national spokesperson for Citizens for Trump, created a storm in 2014 when she claimed Islam was ‘not a religion’ and should not be afforded protections under the US Constitution.

She agains drew publicity two years ago when she turned away a Hindu father and son from her gun range.

The men, of Indian descent, said they had arrived hoping to shoot but were immediately asked where they were from and told it was a Muslim-free range.

Ms Morgan has claimed that business is booming since her Muslim ban and that threats of a lawsuit by federal civil rights enforcers have failed to materialise.

In a bizarre blog post two years ago, she asked why she should ‘rent or sell a gun and hand ammunition to someone who aligns himself with a religion that commands him to kill me?’

The shooting range owner said she made the decision after two customers she deemed suspicious visited. She said their furtive behavior and cellphone ringtones of ‘Allahu Akhbar’ prompted her to revise her range’s policies.

Ms Morgan said she excluded from her range those she believes to be Muslim by assessing their names.

‘We are dealing in lethal firearms,’ Morgan she told at the time. ‘I’m not going to let a Nazi shoot in here, or a Ku Klux Klan member in here, either.’

She added in her blog that she believed the Koran contains ‘109 verses commanding hate, murder and terror,’ and claims threats on her life have been made by Muslims.
