Obama Voters No Longer Allowed at Pinetop Gun Store -- "Effective Immediately"

Part of the newspaper ad (full version at the bottom of this post).
If you're one of the 736 people in Pinetop who voted for President Obama last week, let it be known that you are no longer welcome inside one of the town's gun shops.

At least, that's according to the Southwest Shooting Authority's owner, and the advertisement (pictured to the right) that he took out in the local paper, the White Mountain Independent.

We called the store today -- at 928-367-AK47 -- to try to ask to the owner, Cope Reynolds, how he's going to identify Obama voters who try to sneak in, but no one picked up the phone. We also sent an e-mail, so we'll let you know if he gets back to us.

UPDATE: Reynolds explained how the ban will be enforced. Click here to read the details.

However, here's the explanation he sent over to AmmoLand:

To Whom it May Concern:

I thought you all might be interested in this.

We will try to demonstrate once again that the bottom line for our business is principle, not money.

Yes, it has been damaging at times but our values are intact.

Effective immediately, if you voted for Obama, your money is no good here. You have proven beyond a doubt that you are not responsible enough to own a firearm. We have just put a sign up on the front door to save you the trouble of walking all the way in here...

I took this ad out in our local paper. It will come out in the White Mountain Independent tomorrow, 9 November

Sincerely,
Cope Reynolds

We can also see from Reynolds' social-media accounts that he's joining the secession talk, and isn't a big fan of "Libtards."

Below, see the sign posted on the front door -- "to save you the trouble of walking all the way in here" -- followed by the full newspaper ad from Southwest Shooting Authority.

Come on people!  This is a just a marketing decision a la chick fil-a.

 

This guy hoped that his anti-Democratic, and anti-American advertisement would be posted in the media and cause drama (Check Mark.)  He now hopes the Republican Mad Tea Party folks will claim is first amendment rights are somehow under threat by liberals, and they'll start busing in to his shop to hand over their social security and medicare checks to him.

 

He's just trying to drum up more business ... it''s obviously entirely about the money. There is no other explanation as to why he took out a full page newspaper ad, if he wasn't hoping for media attention.

Turning away business because the customer is "not responsible"?

 

What's next, restricting one's right to keep and bear arms because they're "not responsible"?

My FFL doesn't say whether I'm a Liberal or a conservative.

 

I may go back there on Monday and buy some more guns and ammo. Under my jacket I'm going to wear an "Hilary/Pelosi 2016" for President  t-Shirt. After he sells me the guns and ammo. I'm going to take off my jacket and laugh in that FASCISTS FACE. I agree with that other poster, that gun store owner is an idiot !!

"Where do these...GUN NUTS even come from?"  Typically, the Left resorts to insults and ignores reality and the facts in front of them.  In his position as a responsible gun dealer, he questions the judgement of those who would vote for increasing taxes, crushing regulation, violation of the Constitution, ignoring, insulting and lying to the People, and as his own appointee Holder said, "We need to brainwash people against guns".This is a private property owner who chooses not to do business with those dedicated to illegally crushing his business.  You have never seen "...reserves the right to refuse service..." signs?  Of course you have; but the first and only comment is to insult those who honor the 300 year old American, common-sense tradition (236 of that under our Constitution) of having the lawful citizen at least as well armed as the criminal, the invader, the usurper, etc (all of which are not interested in or deterred by "gun laws").Where do gun owners come from?  Safer communities - as violent crimes are always lower in jurisdictions where the criminal knows that his intended victim and bystanders are not easy prey.One cannot make lawful citizens safer by disarming them in the face of criminals who, by definition, ignore gun laws along with robbery and assault laws.[for Bullock, who claims to have bought $10,000 worth of guns without a FFL, Hitler and his "fascists" were National SOCIALISTS]~SophosArchaeus

 @jimbobob  Of course he's hoping for media attention!!  And I for one, am overjoyed that he is getting it!  Possibly the explanation is..... he has morals and values, and as a business owner he has the right to choose NOT to serve certain individuals! Perhaps he doesn't want to make his living off of ill-minded people.  Or maybe he wants to be able to sleep at night, not be a part of destroying what is left of America.  He has every right to turn business away, ie. "No shoes, No shirt, NO SERVICE".  Well, in this case it's more like "No brains, NO SERVICE".  I see nothing wrong with that.

 

As for busing in the Republicans to hand over their social security and medicare checks to him; So be it!  Might as well spend their social security while they still have it; which wont be long at this rate.  At least no one will start busing in the Liberals and Dems to his shop to hand over their Welfare checks and Food Stamps!!!

 It appears this guy has found a way to garner free press.  So he offends the granola eaters up there on the hill.  He has rallied those who would spend money at a gun shop, and done if for free.  Seems like a brilliant business strategy to me.

And who was responsible for the $9T?

 

Who was responsible for the record unemployment? Here is a hint, it's the guy who was losing 800,000 jobs a month during his last months in office.

 

And who kept his tax cuts off the books and paid for them with credit when the US could not afford them?

 

You really need to get some facts rather than repeating Faux talking points.

 Got it. And the far left is sooo tolerant that they want to ban everything that they don't agree with, and everyone's an idiot that doesn't agree with them. Let's not forget, that "intelligent" liberals want to ban so called "assault weapons", but when you pin them down and ask why, they have no logical or intelligent response, just more name calling and insults.

 

Yep liberals are for more intelligent and mature...NOT!

 @yourproductsucks  he has used and proven the saying "any press is good press". i personally wouldnt travel all that way to his shop, but his gambit worked, i didnt know he existed till this came out, now i know the name of his buisiness and where it is. even though i wouldnt go there, there are plenty of people who will now. we disagree on many things, but nobody can argue with you on the fact that this was was a brilliant move. for every customer he has lost, he probably got 20 more who will support his freedom of speech, point in case would be Chik-fill-A

 Yeah, yeah, yeah..."It's Bush's Fault."  You stupid children will still be repeating that 20 years from now.

 

Yes, Bush did put us in serious debt...and so the only logical and reasonable solution to that, according to Fearless Leader Obummer, was to pile up more debt in four years than all the previous Presidents combined.  Sure.  Makes perfect sense.

 

Flyer, if anyone's 'repeating talking points,' it's you...but it's not like I expected any sort of rational thought from your side anyway.

 @piper9285  @wherewasi 

 

Then you are talking to the wrong liberals.

 

I classify assault weapons as a weapon to ASSAULT someone with that has the ability to either be Full Auto or can be made that way easily and has the capacity to match. That matches what most of the liberals I know say and what the legislation says.

 

I have no problem with AK's or Mini-14's etc.. , I own several and love them, but I do see a reasonable need to not have 15, 20, 30 and 50 round magazines since there is no need for them except convenience or the need to spray a lot of bullets really fast for a longer period of time than a 10 round magazine will allow you.

 

And that is really what this is about, convenience and compromise.

 

Living in a society is about compromise. You want something, someone else wants something else so you compromise and meet in the middle, it's the basic tenant of our democracy.

 

Yet the gun lobby refuses to compromise on the convenience of high capacity magazines and that is all that a high capacity magazine is in anything other than a war situation, a convenience.

 

You want a full auto or fast firing weapon, fine, we meet halfway in the middle which is a reduced capacity magazine so that you can't just spray 30 rounds out in 15-20 seconds even on semi-auto. That's a compromise.

 

Get over yourself and your attitude that living in a society you can and should be able to do anything you damn well please no matter what. If that is what you truly want them you don't want to live in a society, you want to live outside of a society where no one gives a damn about you and you don't give a damn about them.

 

Freedom is great but no society is free and that is where compromise comes in, but when one side refuses to compromise that is wrong and that is the gun lobby right now, wrong.

 @jon49417  No one cares what you do or don't have.  This advertisement has nothing to do with politics and everything to do with capitalism.  Sex and Fear are the biggest motivators in retail sales.  A gun salesman capitalizing on the perceived fears that the guvment is gonna take their weapons is smart business.

 

Stop whining.  Who cares whether or not you'll purchase from this individual.

 @reason.is.liberty  @Flyer9753  @Susan What would be interesting is if you people would step back at this point and look at Bush's debt vs. Obama's. BUsh sank giant piles of money into two wars. One war that he lied to get us into, and the other war that he abandoned to get into the previously mentioned war.

 

Obama has, for the most part, been trying to fix the economy that ALSO collapsed under Bush, as opposed to lying to get us into wars. He actually drew down on the first one, and will have the second one wrapped up by next year.

 

And yes, the people in charge ARE 100% responsible for the economic collapse, because I saw it coming down the stretch for years. I saw the housing bubble bursting in 2003 when everyone at work who owned a house was creaming their jeans because it had "doubled in "value" over the last year". I knew this wasn't going to last and told them so. The problem is that as the economy got worse, and things came to a head, the GOP shot down ANYONE who dared speak out about it and continued to lie and tell us everything was "fine" until it was too late to fix. If they had been responsible leaders, this could have been headed off at the pass. Instead, people who spoke up were either labeled as 'scaremongers', 'liars', 'Liberal agitators', and sometimes 'traitors'. Funny how they turned out to be 100% correct.

HAHAHA

 

Facts are not talking points, although that is something that the tards like you wish was otherwise.

 

Obama has not racked up more debt in 4 years than Bush did. I would love to see something from an actual accountant that says he did. The fact is that Bush kept his war and tax cut debt off the books and real economists and accountants acknowledge that and when they do the figures, they put that where it should be, under Bushes term and not under Obamas, even though it was Obama who did put it officially on the books.

 

When Bush left office the debt was just under $10T, but would have been at $13T if Bush had done what he should have and put his debt on the books.

 

Show me 1 chart, graph or anything, by an actual accountant who is not partisan that shows Obama wracked up more debt in 4 than all the other presidents combined. You can't do it since it does not exist.

 

But keep deluding yourself.

 

Sorry the truth hurts your fantasy world up there on Bullshit Mountain, but you know I am right and the longer you run around claiming otherwise the more you are hurting yourself and this country you 'supposedly' love so much.

He obviously couldn't cut it, that is, if he is being honest.  I have my doubts.  He's proven to be quite the yarn teller.  If you keep chiding him he'll assuredly make a reference to his crackpot lawyer he has on retainer.  That story is good for a laugh.

 @Flyer9753  @wherewasi

 I can't count the times I've heard the same old diatribe from liberals that you just wrote. But it doesn't surprise me that you would say the things you're saying. The fact of the matter is Cho was a liberal, Loughner...liberal, and last but certainly not least, Holmes is also a liberal. They all bought guns with the intent of doing harm, they were not gun owners.

 

I could probably give you pages and pages of information about the Bradys and their attempt to get semi-automatics banned, then of course there is Obama recent statement during the debates that he intends to reinstitute the "assault weapons ban". Of course, Diane Feinstein is trying to introduce semi-auto bans as well, and then there's Chicago's $25.00 tax on ammunition. If you really are a gun owner, you'd know this stuff but I suspect you just another liberal making claims that aren't truthful. So go ahead, stop talking to me, I don't care, but if you continue to respond with false comments, I'll be there to respond.

Really? I and other 'liberals' are trying to compromise and meet you and your group half way but from your post it is clear you are not interested in that, it's your way or the highway.

 

No liberals are trying to ban all semi-autos, that is utter bullshit. The reason magazine limits are being talked about is because of the increase of shootings by idiot war mongers who are mentally unstable and use those high capacity magazines to kill or hurt a lot of people. Interesting how in every instance of shootings with assault weapons by one of those idiot mentally unstable war mongers, they were taken down during the reload.

 

You really don't want to try to lecture me on Thomas Jefferson, I have read more about him and written by him than I am sure you are even aware existed.

 

Clearly from your post you are not interested in having a conversation that explores differing ideas, you are simply interested in having your say and bashing the other guy as often as you can with name calling and incorrect assumptions.

 

I am sure you long for the days of the old west where everyone carried 6 shooters and shot anyone anytime someone looked at them cross eyed.

 

You just made my point for me. Thanks.

 @Flyer9753  @wherewasi

 So called high capacity magazines are a non issue that liberals have made a huge deal out of. But you're making my point, because YOU don't see the need, they are therefore unnecessary. You're definitely showing your liberal stripes.

 

I don't know how old you are, but for decades, magazines with more than 10 rounds were not an issue until liberal politicians and anti-gun extremists made it an issue. Then the rest of the lemmings, present company included, jumped off the cliff, and VOILA, magazines with more than 10 rounds are bad. How stupid is that ? Now not only are liberals trying to ban EBR's (Evil Black Rifles), but they are still trying to ban ALL semi-automatic firearms. Why ? Because like you, they don't see a need for them.

 

Flyer, your ignorance is showing. To quote Thomas Jefferson, “I would rather be exposed to the inconveniences attending too much liberty than to those attending too small a degree of it.” The Bill of Rights was designed to protect fundmental rights, and laws are supposed to subordinate to that. However, legislators have seen fit to make laws that restrict our constitutional rights, and do it in the name of "public safety".

 

Of course, you have no idea who I am, so I will give a little idea who I am.

 

In 1973, I was 17 years old, a high schoold graduate, and an Airman in the United States Air Force. I attended Basic Training at Laqckland AFB, and I also attended the Security Police Tech school at Lackland AFB. After the Air Force and a short 6 months vacation while looking for work, I joined the United States Army, and attented the Military Police School at Ft McClellan, Alabama. After the Army I spent 20 years in Law Enforcement, and to date, I think it's ridiculous that there should be a ban on magazines that carry over 10 rounds. But I'm not the only military and law enforcement veteran that believes that. There are thousands of people like me who believe that.

 

So Flyer, tell me your qualifications.
