Vote for Obama? Pinetop gun store says your business is not welcome

The ad says "If you voted for Barack Obama, your business is not welcome."

Turning away customers is very bad for business. I guess pick your battles where you may, but be aware there are consequences.

Well I hate to say it but some of us pro gun folk are some ignorant fools. AZ came out to be a purple state this last election while at the same time one of the most progressive gun rights sates in the nation.

I went to the gun show a few weekends ago in Glendale and it seemed to be an Obama hate fest and when I asked what has he has done to limit guns rights most stood with a blank stare. And the one guy that told me about the UN treaty couldn't find an answer when I asked what treaty has ever stripped rights or given additional rights to our citizenry.

Unfortunately AZ's demographics are changing rapidly. 70% + of the latino population voted for obummer.

Don't forget the Cali people fleeing the state they destroyed.

Nothing to add. Just seemed like it should get posted more than once. Thanks Anglin!

Simple, look at his supreme court appointments and that will tell you what he is likely to appoint in the future. We are a heartbeat away from having decisions such as Heller overturned and the "RKBA" no longer being interpreted as an individual right.

You remind me of a delegate to the Democratic 2012 convention who was interviewed by a comedian posing as a reporter. When he asked her who wasn't welcome to be a Democrat, she said, "You can't have a gun." The comedian quipped, "yeah, don't need those 160 million votes."

Don't fool yourselves, many more liberals own a gun than you think. Quite a few understand the need for a gun and how owning one can keep them safe.

What they don't like..........and never have, is us with a gun.

62 million people voted for Obama, in a country with 70-80 million gun owners. Please tell me you don't HONESTLY think that all the gun owners in the country voted the other way.

Contrary to this board's obviously skewed* perspectives, guns are truly not that high of a priority for most voters, be them on the left OR the right.




*BTW, that's not a criticism. This is a gun board. I would expect gun issues to be a higher priority. If you were on a pick-up truck forum, they'd likely be saying "How many truck owners do you think really voted for him??" The point being, just because it seems like the be-all-end-all issue that it appears to be when viewed through the GlockTalk prism.

How many regular shoppers do you think would have voted for Obama. A minute fraction.

Yes, there are some Obama voters that own guns, but the majority of those will buy a gun maybe once in their lifetime and maybe a box of shells once a year.
