Gun Shop Owner Bans Obama Supporters From Buying Guns
A gun shop owner in Arizona doesn’t think Obama supporters are responsible enough to have a gun, so he’s letting them know he doesn’t want their business.
Cope Reynolds, the owner of Southwest Shooting Authority, a gun store located in Pinetop, Arizona, took out a full page ad in a local newspaper that read: “If you voted for Barack Obama your business is not welcome.”
The New York Daily News reports that Mr. Reynolds also posted a sign on the store’s front door:
“If you voted for Obama, please turn around and leave! You have proven you are not responsible enough to own a firearm.”
It is not known how Reynolds will identify Obama supporters and it doesn’t seem likely that one would admit to having voted to reelect the president if they wish to purchase a gun at his store.
In an emailed statement, Reynolds wrote: “Obviously, this is nothing more than a political statement. Of course, it would be impossible to enforce. If they don’t say anything, we’ll never know. They could purchase whatever they wanted, and they would probably get a big kick out of thinking they are rubbing it in our face as they walk out the door.”
