White Mountain-Area Gun Store Bans Obama Voters

Posted By on Mon, Nov 19, 2012 at 11:11 AM

We've got this coming through here thanks to our friends over at the Phoenix New Times: Apparently, if you admit to having voted for Barack Obama, your money isn't welcome in Pinetop's Southwest Shooting Authority gun shop.

From Ammoland, where owner Cope Reynolds posted his announcement:

The sign in question.
  • Facebook
  • The sign in question.

We will try 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.

Effective immediately, if you voted for Obama, your money is no good here. You have proven beyond a doubt that you are not responsible enough to own a firearm. We have just put a sign up on the front door to save you the trouble of walking all the way in here….

As Reynolds admitted to the New Times, this is just a political statement, and a hell of an eye-catching stunt. But let's be honest: As someone who is considered responsible enough to legally carry a concealed firearm*, being considered too irresponsible to buy one for voting for someone of a different political party is asinine.

*Yes, I know, EVERYONE is legally permitted to carry a concealed firearm in this state. That's the joke. It's not funny when you make me explain it.
