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

    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. :faint:

    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. :dunno:

    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.:wavey:
