Arizona Gun Store Refuses to Sell to Obama Voters

Posted on the 19 November 2012 by Eowyn @DrEowyn

A gun store in Arizona is putting into practice the injunction to shun all Obama supporters.

Madeleine Morgenstern reports for The Blaze, Nov. 17, 2012, that the Southwest Shooting Authority in Pinetop, Ariz. posted a sign on its door and took out a newspaper ad declaring that if you voted for Obama last week, you’re not allowed in.

“If you voted for Obama, please turn around and leave! You have proven that you are not responsible enough to own a firearm!” the sign states.

Owner Cope Reynolds conceded that he can’t really tell who voted for Obama unless they “own up to it” — but if they do, they’re out. In an email to the Phoenix New Times, Reynolds said, “If they don’t say anything, we’ll never know. However, if they own up to it, we will not serve them.”

He said in an explanation on AmmoLand that he did it to “demonstrate once again that the bottom line for our business is principle, not money. Yes, it has been damaging at times but our values are intact.”

Reynolds told Fox News that “If you are dumb enough to vote for Obama again – after four years of this — I don’t think you are responsible enough to own a firearm. I don’t care who it makes mad.”

He said he’s gotten support for his new policy from around the country — including one person who ordered hundreds of dollars worth of ammunition — but that there have also been lots of “vile, rude and hateful comments.”

“I hate it because my 17-year-old son answers the phone and they light into him,” Reynolds said. “They call us stupid rednecks and racist.”

Reynolds told Fox that no matter what happens, the sign is staying up: “If we lose the whole business it doesn’t matter. The bottom line is — my values.”
