The owner of an Arizona gun store said he will not sell weapons to customers who voted for President Obama because "you have proven that you are not responsible enough to own a firearm."

Cope Reynolds, owner of the Southwest Shooting Authority in Pinetop, Ariz., posted the new store policy in a newspaper advertisement - as well as on a sign posted on the front door.
"If you voted for Barack Obama your business is not welcome at Southwest Shooting Authority," the ad reads. "You have proven that you are not responsible enough to own a firearm."
The Southwest Shooting Authority is a family-owned, family-run business that Reynolds opened in 2004. He told Fox News that he's absolutely serious about the new policy.
"I'm a small business owner," he said. "If you are dumb enough to vote for Obama again - after four years of this - I don't think you are responsible enough to own a firearm. I don't care who it makes mad."
Reynolds acknowledged that folks coming into his store probably didn't vote for Obama anyway, but he's still making a statement. He said he's concerned about how President Obama's policies could impact his small business.
He also posted a letter on the Ammoland website that read in part:
"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."

Gun Store Owner Who Banned Obama Supporters Says 'Business Is Booming'

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:
