Obama Voters Banned From Arizona Gun Store

Arizona Gun Store

Obama voters have been effectively banned from an Arizona gun store, according to MSN. The owner believes that anyone who supports the President isn’t responsible enough to own a firearm.

If you openly admit to casting your vote for Barack Obama in this year’s presidential election, then the owner of Southwest Shooting Authority in Pinetop, Arizona will not do business with you. In his opinion, Obama supporters aren’t worthy of gun ownership.

“If you voted for Obama, please turn around and leave! You have proven you are not responsible enough to own a firearm!” a sign outside the gun store explains. Owner Cope Reynolds said the message was posted “to save you the trouble of walking all the way in here.”

“Obviously, this is nothing more than a political statement,” Reynolds said in an email to the Phoenix New Times. “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 that they are rubbing it in our face as they walk out the door. Some folks are easily amused that way.”

He added, “However, if they own up to it, we will not serve them. This goes way beyond gun control, which many think is why we did this. I should have as much right to post a sign on my door as those that post ‘No Guns’ on their doors.”

Cope Reynolds further explained his decision in a recent letter to the folks at AmmoLand.com.

“We will try to demonstrate once again that the bottom line for our business is principle, not money,” Reynolds wrote. “Yes, it has been damaging at times but our values are intact.”

Do you think Cope Reynolds should be allowed to ban Obama voters from his gun store?

    Hell no…where's the FEC in all this? I fact, I wish Pro-Obama supporters would picket this stoor into bankruptcy- theyve proven themselves unworthy and too irresponsible to have a business. BOYCOTT THIS STORE.

    NO it's absolutely hipocritical. If your going to vote for someone who is anti-gun, then gun stores should have the right to decline selling you a gun. On principle alone.

    What if they voted for Obama based on other principles? So anyone who is pro-gun needs to vote Republican? That's a little too simplistic. Besides, it's unconstitutional (discrimination).

    The point the store owner forgets is that this is EXACTLY the type of persecution that used to happen in the early to late 1700's and one of the principle behind secret balloting in democracy. your right perhaps it is Hypocritical, but this guy is anti democracy and has no respect for the history and challenges of the American system that has made the country great. If anything he needs to take a look at political history, he thinks he is a patriot, however is following in the worst traditions and the darkest forms of American history.

    I voted Obama, but I was completely agreeing with your last post…this one is stupid! You just said everyone has a right to their own opinion…then you say those people shouldn't have the right to buy a gun. Retarded.

    But, he's not against the 2nd amendment. He has never said he's anti gun. He has never "taken all ahr' guuuuns". This is so fucking retarded on so many levels. I fucking hate party voters.

    And then these people wonder why they lost the election. The GOP needs to decide if they want to represent these lunatics and then lose all the elections for the next 100 years. Remember, this made the national news, so everyone in the US heard about it. I'm an Obama fan, so I sent this guy a "Thank you card".

    The shop owner should be allowed to have the sign as that is just part of his freedom as an American citizen and in most states (not sure if Arizona is one of them) allows business owners the right to refuse service. I do however think that Obama, Romney, Johnson, and whoever supporters should be allowed to purchase a gun (if legally allowed to) in any store that sells them. Thankfully we have the option as Americans to go to another store. If you did vote Obama there are thousands of other gun stores that would likely sell you a gun and be more than happy about it. Who cares what one damn person is doing. Let's all pull up our pampers and quit whining. (Kind of like seeing something on TV that you don't like, if you don't like it change the damn channel).
