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.”

    Who could blame him. Obama does help sell guns; by fear that he will outlaw most types. That possible change (which Dems advocate for) of which types can be purchased would undoubtedly kill gun sales. Small arms and semi-auto’s (AR15,Pistols…etc) largely drive the market these days as they are the most practical for self defense.
