    Cope Reynolds, the gun store owner of the Southwest Shooting Authority store in Pinetop, Arizona, recently placed a newspaper ad in the White Mountain Independent, which read: “If you voted for Barack Obama, your business is NOT WELCOME at Southwest Shooting Authority.”

    Copeland also posted a sign on the door of his shop that reads: "If you voted for Obama, please turn around and leave! You have proven you are not responsible enough to own a firearm. Thank you, The Management," reports the Phoenix News-Times.

    When asked how he will identify voters for Obama, Reynolds told the Phoenix News-Times: “Obviously, this is nothing more than a political statement. 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.”

    "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.”

    Third or fourth thread on the same thing.

    What amazes me is that anyone would think this wasn't the norm in many parts of AZ. I been there my Brother has a Harley and gun shop in SE AZ and I doubt you could find a shop that wouldn't gladly post that sign.

    Here's something i just came across.

    A FORD DEALER'S REPORT

    This is exactly why Mitt Romney said that 40 some % of the people are too dependent on the government. They have learned to work the system-
    A Ford Dealer's Report - From Tom Selkis' (Latham Ford) Facebook - True story yesterday at the dealership.



    "I'll try to make this as short and to the point as I can.

    One of my salesmen here had a woman in his office yesterday wanting to lease a brand new Focus.

    As he was reviewing her credit application with her he noticed she was on social security disability.

    He said to her you don't look like you're disabled and unable to work.

    She said well I'm really not. I could work if I wanted to, but I make more now than I did when I was working and

    got hurt (non-disabling injury). She said the gov't sends her $1500.00 a month in 1 check. And she gets $700.00 a

    month on an EBT card (food stamps), and $800.00 a month for rent.

    Oh yeah, and 250 minutes free on her phone. That is just south of $3500.00 a month.

    When she was working, she was taking home about $330.00 per week.

    Do the math and then ask yourself why the hell should she go back to work.

    If you multiply that by millions of people, you start to realize the scope of the problem we face as a country.

    Once the socialists have 51% of the population in that same scenario, we are finished.

    The question is when do we cross that threshold if we haven't already, and there are not enough people working to

    pay enough taxes to support the non-working people? Riots?? Be prepared to protect your homes.

    She didn't lease the Focus here because the dealer down the road beat our deal by $10.00/month.

    Glad to know she is so frugal with her hard earned money."

    Did that email forward have anything to say other than, "waaaa, we lost business because another business beat our price."

    As for the gunshop guy, smart stunt to get free press. It's bad business to actually turn away money, but a smart move to pull any free press you can.

    Doesn't even have to be 51%. If someones Mother, Son, Sibling, Spouse,etc... is in that situation, then those that are close to them are not likely to vote to have that taken away. So, effectively, all they really need is maybe around 25%.
