GYM SAYS ‘ENOUGH’: NJ Gym Defies Governor’s Order, Opens for Business, Says ‘We Will Not Stand Down’

posted by Hannity Staff - 5.18.20

A local workout facility in New Jersey is publicly defying the Governor’s lock-down order Monday; opening for business while telling reporters “we will not stand down.”

“We made the decision to open,” said Ian Smith, the owner of Atilis Gym. “We will not stand down!”

“Governor Murphy has presented zero plans and I think my business partner and I have a plan to keep people safe,” said Smith.

“We put together a plan and the plan was first that members only so we knew who were in our doors at all times and when, something big corporations are not doing … we’ll be able to track all of that very easily. We’ll be taking temperatures at the door, according to CDC recommendations. Anybody at the time who is a 100.4 or more will not be allowed in until their fever has subsided for at least 48 hours,” Smith said.

Smith went on to say, “We got spray bottles for each individual person so that anything that they touch will be disinfected before and after use … We’ve gone above and beyond and we have listed all of the steps and it’s so far beyond what the other stores are doing that, at this point, if the governor chooses to shut us down, it is absurd.”

“The Supreme Court of Texas has ordered the release of Dallas salon owner, Shelly Luther, who was jailed for violating executive stay at home orders during the COVID-19 pandemic,” reports CBS Dallas. “She’s currently in isolation and protective custody at the Lew Sterrett Justice Center in Dallas.”

Luther was arrested and fined $7,000 for opening without the state’s permission has raised more than $200,000 online since the incident; vowing to defy the “unlawful order.”

“Shelley Luther is an American Hero that has decided to resist tyranny by opening her business against an unlawful State Executive Order. Her business, SALON A LA MODE offers services for hair and nails, microblading, permanent makeup, professional event makeup, braiding and more! Shelley and her team will likely face legal action, fines, and more during her journey back to freedom. She is doing what everyone else is only talking about, in a patriotic move to take back her liberty!” writes the website.

Original Story:

A Dallas salon owner will spend at least seven days in a local prison for defying the state’s shutdown order for personal care and grooming services during the Coronavirus pandemic.

“In addition, Shelley Luther was fined $7,000 for continuing to operate her business, Salon à la Mode, in violation of a judge’s temporary restraining order issued against the business. Luther was taken into custody immediately after the hearing and booked into the Dallas County jail just after 4:30 p.m.,” reports the Dallas News.

“Like other businesses deemed nonessential, Luther’s Far North Dallas salon was forced to close March 22 after the county enacted its stay-at-home order. She reopened the salon April 24 despite that order, and tore up a cease-and-desist letter from County Judge Clay Jenkins at a demonstration the next day,” adds the website.

“I couldn’t feed my family, and my stylists couldn’t feed their families,” Luther told the court. “If you think the law is more important than kids getting fed, then please go ahead with your decision, but I am not going to shut the salon.”

LONE STAR JUSTICE: Gov Says Throwing Texas Business Owners in Jail is ‘Nonsensical and Will Not Happen’

posted by Hannity Staff - 5.07.20

Texas Governor Greg Abbott issued an Executive Order Thursday demanding the release of a Dallas salon owner jailed for re-opening her business; calling her arrest “nonsensical.”

“Throwing Texans in jail who have had their businesses shut down through no fault of their own is nonsensical, and I will not allow it to happen. That is why I am modifying my executive orders to ensure confinement is not a punishment for violating an order. This order is retroactive to April 2nd, supersedes local orders and if correctly applied should free Shelley Luther … As some county judges advocate for releasing hardened criminals from jail to prevent the spread of COVID-19, it is absurd to have these business owners take their place,” said Abbott.
