A gun shop in Arizona posted a sign saying that it would ban anyone who voted to re-elect President Barack Obama.
“If you voted for Barack Obama, your business is not welcome at the Southwest Shooting Authority. You have proven you are not responsible enough to own a firearm,” reads the sign at the Southwest Shooting Authority in Pinetop, Ariz., according to local CBS-5 television.
The shop also placed an ad in the White Mountain Independent newspaper with the same message, reported The Huffington Post.
Store owner Cope Reynolds told The Huffington Post that the sign and ad were not related to gun control.
“It is about the direction that this country is going and the direction it’s been going for the last four years, and I feel like the people that voted for him are by and large the ones that are on the many entitlements and free stuff that they’ve been getting,” Reynolds told the Post.
Reynolds told the East Valley Tribune that he has received mostly positive comments.
