Gun shop owner hangs anti-Obama sign outside store

PINETOP, Ariz. -- A gun shop owner in eastern Arizona is making headlines with a politically-charged sign he decided to hang outside of his business.
Cope Reynolds owns the Southwest Shooting Authority in Pinetop, and just days after President Barack Obama was reelected he decided that he would no longer allow Obama supporters in his store.
Reynolds proceeded to put up a sign outside his business that told Obama fans that they’re not welcome in his store because, “you have proven you are not responsible enough to own a firearm.”
Word of Reynolds’ sign quickly spread across the country, with critics suggesting that Reynolds’ motives were racially based.
Reynolds insists he’s not racist, explaining that he’s just concerned about Obama’s policies.
“It wouldn’t make a difference if he was black, white, brown, man, woman, homosexual, it wouldn’t make any difference,” said Reynolds. “It’s the manner in which this country is being run that disturbs us.”
There’s one thing about Reynolds’ anti-Obama sign that can’t be disputed: it’s good for business.
“We’re getting people ordering guns from New York and Nevada and Idaho because of this sign,” said Reynolds. “For every one I might lose I’m probably picking up 10.”
And even if his sign were hurting his business, Reynolds says he’d still speak his mind.
“It’s not about money. It’s about freedom, it’s about America, my kids, and what they’re going to inherit,” he proclaimed.
Reynolds plans to keep the sign up in his store for the next four years.

Not even uncommon enough to be surprising. I remember snarky "Obama's coming for your guns!" signs on gun shops before he even took office.

But that Ant-Obama sounds like a pretty cool future Marvel superhero movie!

What other thing in Arizona does this remind me of?

Oh yes, SB 1062. Conservatives are at their happiest when they can discriminate against others.

At least Brewer had the common decency to veto it.

At least he's in favor of /some/ kind of background check.

From the Yelp Reviews:

"The owner Cope is a crazy loon who recently has been vocal on how people who have voted for Obama are too irresponsible to own weapons and are not allowed in his store. What even more frightening is the he is a mouth piece for a secession from the United States. He is a vile sad person, and reading his FB page is like reading something right from hitler himself!

Stay away from this place."

Reynold's business sense matches his common sense = he has none.

Well that's a dog whistle there - no minorities or _________-lovers need come into that store. No doubt, bidness is good bc it's clear that there are a lot of bigots, racists & just general all-around rednecked *ssholes in AZ - check out SB 1062, which just got shot down in flames in AZ.

Why did that piece of rabidly anti-gay legislation get shot down by notoriously rightwing Gov Brewer?? Because business interests protested, including the NFL, saying they'd pull out of AZ if that leg. got passed.

Too bad, so sad, racists & bigots in AZ. The rest of world doesn't like YOUR KIND.

In the meantime, this stupid gun store in Bumf*ck Az will probably do fine. Whatever... more rightwing b.s about how Obama's gonna steal your gunz booga booga. So more rightwing *ssholes waste their money on stuff they don't need.
