Obama Supporters 'Not Responsible Enough To Own A Firearm,' AZ Gun Store's Sign Declares

It was reported over the weekend that the owner of a gun store in Arizona is telling Pres. Obama's supporters he doesn't want their business.

Cope Reynolds, the owner of Southwest Shooting Authority, a gun store located in Pinetop, Arizona, took out a full page ad in a local newspaper that read: "If you voted for Barack Obama your business is not welcome."

The New York Daily News reports that Mr. Reynolds also posted a sign on the store's front door:

"If you voted for Obama, please turn around and leave! You have proven you are not responsible enough to own a firearm."

It is not known how Reynolds will identify Obama supporters and it doesn't seem likely that one would admit to having voted to reelect the president if they wish to purchase a gun at his store.

In an emailed statement, Reynolds wrote: "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 they are rubbing it in our face as they walk out the door."

Despite Mr. Reynold's personal attempt at "gun control," it has been widely reported that gun sales are on the rise though the reason behind demand varies from source to source.  One theory suggests that citizens are stockpiling arms out of concern that President Barack Obama will tighten regulations on assault weapons, even ban them outright in his second term.
