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.

Yeah, he might miss out on one of the twelve gun owning Obama supporters in that state coming by and buying something.

This will not be very useful for trying to get gun-control supporters to go shooting with you.

Anyone ever taken an anti out shooting? Their minds can change if you show them how to use a gun. After shooting a few rounds, it isn't so scary, and they think rather than feel.

This is part of keeping our rights by winning support. We should all be doing this.

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.

He may actually bring in a lot more customers to his store for posting that than the ones he turns away.

It's a PR stunt. He can already not sell a gun to anyone, regardless if they voted for King Obama, if he doesn't want to. It's a feel good move. What will he accomplish...less sales? More sales? Who knows.

How many gun owners/buyers do you know voted for Obama?

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.

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

If he had a sign that said No Blacks or Mexicans he would be a horrible person but since he chooses to only sell to non-Barry voters he is a stand up guy.

Last I heard, your vote was private and none of anyone else's business. Or isn't this my good old USA any more?

I think an effort to polarize people is a bad idea. By making them your enemy you help ensure they don't adopt your beliefs.

Yeah - not like Barry Soetero "polarizes" people...huh?

I like the shop owner on principle. He puts his $$ where his mouth is.

and if you're wondering what Obama has done to take away gun rights, look no further than Chicago or google up John Lott's discussion with Obama on gun ownership. If you're still not convinced, just wait a few months and you'll see. If I am wrong, I'll gladly apologize to you and do the happy dance in the middle of main street.
