Gun Store: Obama Voters Not Welcome

Marketing genius:

The owner of an Arizona gun store said he will not sell weapons to customers who voted for President Obama because “you have proven that you are not responsible enough to own a firearm.”

Cope Reynolds, owner of the Southwest Shooting Authority in Pinetop, Ariz., posted the new store policy in a newspaper advertisement — as well as on a sign posted on the front door.

“If you voted for Barack Obama your business is not welcome at Southwest Shooting Authority,” the ad reads. “You have proven that you are not responsible enough to own a firearm.”

The Southwest Shooting Authority is a family-owned, family-run business that Reynolds opened in 2004. He told Fox News that he’s absolutely serious about the new policy.

Insulting voters worked so well for Romney that Mr. Reynolds decided to see how insulting customers would work for him.

I imagine his strategy will meet with appropriate success.

1. This is really free advertisement for the Faux News loons.

Being they gave this nut some of their air time.. Considering the base of Fox News, it is likely good for his business.

2. well, if he voted for Romney he just proved that he is not responsible enough to own a gun store.

I would gladly take my business elsewhere. Where the proprietor would have the good sense to not ask me about my private business.

What a fucking dumbass.

3. I always wonder how they think they will enforce these decrees. Read customer minds?

Assuming I wanted to give this asshole my business, I'm pretty sure I could just say "sure I voted for Mitt Romney" if he asked.

Maybe he's the kind of conservative who actually thinks we all wear berets, and carry lattes, drive up in our volvos...

6. The gun store owner

of course is not necessarily quizzing people before they can purchase a gun. It's a publicity stunt that has worked out well for him. I remember hearing a radio commercial in Phoenix last winter using pretty much the same script as the the gun store owner up in Pinetop that is the subject of this thread.

7. Nah, at most it will mean fewer (or more) guns sold at this particular store

The owner is hoping his stupid stunt will garner free advertising and appeal to his customers; my hope that this divisive bullshit backfires into reduced sales. But what is fantastic is that another freeperish ass has identified himself so liberal shoppers can make informed decisions on where to spend their dollars...

10. Yeah, I prefer it when businesses are up front

about being right wing asshats. This guy, "Papa John," I wish more would be so honest about their contempt for the people so I know where not to spend money.
