Gun store refuses to sell to Barack Obama voters

Gun store refuses to sell to Barack Obama voters

A gun store has stated that it will refuse to sell to anyone who voted for Barack Obama at this year's presidential election.

The Southwest Shooting Authority in Pinetop, Arizona posted the warning in an newspaper advertisement.

The notice in the White Mountain Independent read: "If you voted for Barack Obama, your business is NOT WELCOME at the Southwest Shooting Authority.

"You have proven you are not responsible enough to own a firearm."

Owner Cope Reynolds revealed to The Huffington Post: "It is about the direction that this country is going and the direction it's been going for the last four years.


A douchebag born every minute.

I know for a fact that progressives own guns, just visit the Gundgeon here at DU. So in a year when this guy is going out of business he'll know it's because half the state does not want to buy from him because he's an asshole.

1. That's OK. Since the President got re-elected my URGE to buy a gun and go shoot something is gone.

I would have only needed to buy weapons and form up with a militia if the reich wing had stolen the election.

Besides if THEIR store supports Robme and his ilk, I wouldn't want my money to go to them anyway.

33. Do you think there will EVER be a time when the gun nuts have enough guns?

How many do they need? thirty, forty, fifty each. Will there ever be a time when enough is enough? I speak for myself but news like this causes me great embarrassment for the USA..I own a couple of guns myself, so this doesn't come from a great dislike of guns... I own a hunting rifle, a pistol, and a shotgun.....but that is all I need to get by just fine in my life..

30. Uh, yeah--that is the sad part...

I know that Democrats, liberals and people who aren't Republicans--buy guns.

Setting that aside for a minute--we know that the right-wing is saturated with the gun nuts, gun enthusiasts and people who are convinced that Obama wants to take away their guns. So, really, from a PR/marketing standpoint--this guy will be helped, rather than hurt.

The crazy, anti-Obama gun people on the right will absolutely eat this up. They'll get their guns from him, I'm sure.

4. They create this fantasy of a man depriving them of guns while at the same time creating

a reality of a man depriving people of guns. They really are some projecting mother fuckers.

5. I had a visual when I saw this -

of a group of, say, twenty people with combat clothing going into the store and cleaning it out of guns and ammo. Just as they are leaving they branish their T-shirts which read:

Obama's Army - Defend the Union - Buy up the Arms!.

7. Bet my rear, one can't find a viable gun shop that will exclude right wingers.

This cretin will just attract business. The majority of folks into lethal weapons and such love gun shops with a Limbaugh/Beck philosophy. Who the heck else is going to stand there shooting the breeze about the best guns to shoot people?

15. I don't buy guns at a gun shop

I either buy them on line and have them sent to my buddy's house, who has an ffl or I buy them from people locally. No paperwork. Nobody knows about the transaction.

Gun shops charge too much money.

20. A large majority get them from straw buys or theft.

Many of the guns cost between seven hundred and a thousand dollars. No criminal is going to pay retail for a gun.

22. Almost every gun a criminal eventually acquires starts out as a legal sale. Just a fact.


Yes, another way is they are stolen from a supposedly responsible gun owner, who screws up and turns out not to be responsible enough to secure lethal weapons. Or, guns are bought from a "part-time dealer" at a gun show. Or, as you say a "straw-purchase." I suspect a lot of gun shops know they are straw-purchases, but what the heck, it's a fist full of cash and all the legal criteria is met (so it must be OK). Then, there is the so-called responsible gun owner, too cheap to go through an FFL for a background check and who knows there will be little way to track the gun to him in event purchaser shoots someone.

In addition to working for defeat of Obama and other good Democrats, the NRA lobbies heavily to preserve this screwed up system on behalf of members, non-member gun cultists, manufacturers of lethal weapons, and local gun traffickers (euphemistically referred to as "gun shops").

21. At one time, buyers were at the mercy of gunshop owners

They could charge what they wanted and buyers had no choice but other local gunshops. That changed when it became legal for buyers to order guns online. Gunshop owners hate sites like gunbroker.

10. And how does the idiot think he's gonna know who voted what?

Maybe he'll decide anyone coming in with a smile is an Obama voter? It would serve him right if 75% of his customers are Democrats who voted for President Obama.

a rather surprising admission. Most shops know better than to lead with their politics, esp in Austin, Tx where I live.

12. Our local gun store runs radio ads saying "get a glock while you still can" and the worst one is the


the one they run during UGA football games where they say something like "We sell knives, boots, hunting apparel. Come see our other items that the University of Georgia doesn't want you to know about".

I'm of the opinion that the people who run gun stores, on general principle, are just as bad as pimps and drug pushers.

I thought the NRA was using President Obama's reelection to drive up gun and ammunition sales. This guy apparently doesn't give a shit. Good for him.

25. time to go there

start looking at the most expensive hunting rifle in stock, talk to them about the add ons, custom stock, nightvision scope, gun lock, gun case, trigger rework and get that sucker up there.

then tell them you voted for the President and won't be able to follow through on the purchase.

that should frost them a bit.
