Last week, the owner of an Arizona gun shop made national headlines after it was reported that he had posted a sign and taken out a full page ad in a local newspaper that banned Obama supporters from entering his store. One week later, Cope Reynolds is cashing in on the attention.

Mr. Reynolds, owner of Southwest Shooting Authority says “business is booming” after his sign and newspaper ad caught the attention of various media outlets. The sign read: “If you voted for Barack Obama, your business is not welcome at Southwest Shooting Authority. You have proven you’re not responsible enough to own a firearm.”

Reynolds says he has been inundated with hundreds of calls and emails from media types and supporters. When asked about business, he replied, “ I've been busier than a cat covering up poop on a marble floor.”

The Arizona Republic spoke with Mr. Reynolds about his sign and the effect it’s had on his business:

“People are saying that I've alienated half of our customers,” Reynolds said, laughing. “No, I haven’t. I haven't alienated any of my customers, because the people who voted for Obama don’t buy guns here. They don't come here at all. I haven’t alienated. I've improved things. I have packages sitting on my desk to be shipped to places like Massachusetts, Connecticut, New York, Idaho, Nevada and California.”

Talking Points Memo asked Mr. Reynolds how he will prevent Obama supporters from entering the store and purchasing merchandise. He said he will not be conducting a litmus test to determine the customer’s political views but that he is considering giving discounts to registered Republicans and Libertarians.

Seventy-Five percent of the calls he is getting are positive, Reynolds says. “You can always tell the ones that are not -- 9 out of 10 of them start out with vile and nasty language. And I guess they don’t have the intelligence to carry on a conversation like an adult.” Reynolds also revealed that he has been receiving death threats saying, “Just comes with the territory I guess.”

Mr. Reynolds admits that there haven’t been any serious attempts by the Obama administration to change America’s gun laws, but he suspects that is coming now that the president has been re-elected.

      For all you know the gun store owner is an Obama supporter? It'd be good business sense judging by who buys the most guns

      Marketing, by saying if you voted for Obama your custom is not welcome you are marketing to Republicans, who are the 'gun proliferation' party.

      Therefore it makes sense to market properly in order to get a bigger market share even if say the owner himself voted for Obama.

      Gaining market share means loosing some customers for more of other type of customers. As you can see by the article it worked.

      Why?

      "the guy is willing to lose a few customers to make a point?"


      Do you really not see it?

  • It's no big deal. Obama voters don't buy their guns from legitimate sources anyways.

  • The Young Turks make the same noises I do during chili week.

    Generally it's loud, stinky and sometimes has the consistency of what I leave in crapper.

    So, after I listen to these assholes, I feel the need to tell them to give everyone a courtesy flush.

    And is it just me, or does the white commentator sound like he's a little light in the loafers?

  • Obama supporters don't buy guns anyway.

  • Most Obama voters don't buy their guns in gun stores. They can't pass a background check.

    I heard this story on the news. The Young Turkeys are saying the sign says they can't buy guns there. The sign says Obama voters aren't welcome, not that they can't buy guns there.

      yep, that kind of mentality threw away the last 2 elections, "no way the black man will get out and vote, they cant, they are all felons" ......might as well go for a third....why not.....

      Obviously, not all Obama voters were black. It would probably be safe to say most blacks who voted did vote for Obama but there aren't enough of them to elect a president. Hispanics and white women did that.

  • If I understand correctly, liberals, most Democrats and Obama supporters are against guns and promote gun control. Why would they be in a gun store in the first place? Out to cause mischief?

  • Bitch,,please.
    She ignored the false-flag intent of the gunwalker scandal,, the message to the UN the day after the election announcing the re-start of their gun grab.
    Maybe she's not old enough to remember Obungeroo's statement that he'd be "working beneath the radar".

  • Automatic guns are illegal except for a special permit. The dumb broad is confusing automatic guns with semi-auto guns. And, a semi-auto AK-47 is not nearly as powerful as a 30.06 deer rifle. Obama has certainly been good for two things: guns and gold.

  • Gun Control, Obama is not about gun control, he knows he will loose. So he has taken the alternate route... Any one notice how expensive our ammo has been getting? The military can no longer surplus its brass, it must be melted down as a result reloaded military surplus brass is gone, so now all we can buy is full price single load brass. A local shooting range has been required to post signs prohibiting the collection of spent shells. So reloading your own spent shells is no longer an optio More..
