    I'm just ROTFLMAO over this.<br>
    <br>
    There are several postings on various gun discussion boards by gunshop owners and employees that they are getting Obama supporters flocking in to buy guns.<br>
    <br>
    What several are doing are checking to see if they have Obama bumper stickers, tshirts, hats or buttons, and are REFUSING to sell them guns and ammo. Some are telling them that they are reserving guns and ammo for patriots, not communist supporters and backstabbing stooges.<br>
    <br>
    Oh this is delicious.

    Brian, you can bet they already peeled those stickers off their cars and threw away those tee shirts and hats just in case things go south,

    They can say, "Who me? Oh no not me, I voted for John McCain. I wouldn't think of voting for that guy obama."

    It's called CYA. That should be the "49th Law" in the book obama read and followed.

    Why would they want to associate with some who supports shutting them down? Would you?

    Same for all the gun owners that didnt vote and or don't belong to the NRA.

    These same folks just gave the NY Senate to the Dems. Nice shot.

    NRA; Love 'em or hate 'em, you better join em.

    No tickie, no laundry

    flame on !

    Right on, Bruce! If you are a shooter or hunter, you belong in the NRA. No excuses. Are you listening, Pennsylvania and Michigan hunters?. How can you let the lefties take your heritage?

    You don't have to be a hunter to join. I am a shooter only and been a member for 30 years. So everyone on this site should sign up if not a member already. Bulge

    How about if gun shops required an NRA membership card to complete a sale?? That's a rule I could support.

    Horse crap!

    You guys really think that a gun shop owner is going to know about somebody's politics or that they actually go out and check for big O bumper stickers or that clowns run around in gun shops with Obama pins saying here I am redneck come get me?

    You really believe a legitimate buisiness owner would treat thier customers this way?

    I already have to come up with plenty of ID and background history to buy a gun and you guys want to make it worse. You think I need to prove that I buy into a very limited and paranoid view of life before I can buy a firearm or even food?

    Think about what you are saying for a second here - You think the right to buy/own firearms depends on your partizan status and whether or not you are in a certain organization. And you call yourselves americans? Patriots?

    I made no mention of partisan status. I know that a lot of people don't believe it, but there are pro-2nd amendment democrats out there. In fact, I know some of them. I don't happen to be one, but I don't deny their existence.

    All I did was make a suggestion. If a gun dealer wants to implement a store policy about only selling to those who care enough about their right to bear arms to support the one organization whose sole existence is to guarantee that freedom does not go by the wayside, then what is wrong with that??? It's no different than gun clubs that require NRA membership in order to join.

    How dare you question my patriotism and that of the other posters on this site.

    I question your patriotism because you seem to think its okay to deny someone their second amendment rights based on what you think their politics may be or should be. (partizanship) The NRA is a political organization that is very much partizan. You threw out the statement about making it a 'rule' to have an NRA card to be eligible to buy a gun.

    But even more sickening than that is the hate filled manner in which you conduct yourselves under the banner of the NRA and then wonder why mainstream america considers that organization to be just a bunch of violence prone 'gun nuts'. Go ahead, lets do what we can to alienate the majority of the country because you hate Obamie and somehow a little misguided revenge will make it all better. See how well that works for the cause.

    A well reasoned approach would be to sell all those suspected Obama supporters as many guns as they want, pocket the profits, and then consider them potential progun converts.

    Funny how I had a staunch Obama supporter call me yesterday looking for an "assault rifle". Seems he saw something in the newspaper about the difficulty getting one after his "savior" takes office.

    This comes from a reasonably intelligent individual, successful small business owner and a Trapshooter. Can anyone tell me what he was voting for!!

    Wolfram,

    Gotta call you on this one.

    The NRA has supported ANY candidate, regardless of party affiliation, based on how they support or attack your second amendment rights. To suggest it is a 'Republican' puppet shows your naivete, or a rabid belief structure that just might need to be modified. To wit, where is all this anger coming from?

    This is America, land of the free. One of those freedoms is that a business may choose who to serve and who to turn away (casinos can ban card counters - no crime committed, just a superior ability to remember numbers and patterns).

    I suspect that any company might consider NOT dealing with people who have as part of their agendas restrictions that might ultimately put them out of business (have you read the 'reasonable gun control' ideas the Obama transition team has already placed on their web site??).

    To call in question someone's patriotism shows the intolerance rampant in liberal thinking today.

    Why must we agree with you, or be tolerant and accepting of your differing views, when you refuse to do the same for us? Worse, you demand change and attack us when we do not share your views - where is the acceptance that liberal thinking is based on?

    Guys (and Gal) I HAVE to submit my comment here in the form of a question. This question comes from an NRA Member and one who tried to make a Gunshop work in North Georgia last year. Here's the question........ If you refuse to sell a gun to someone who voted for Obama because Obama wants to violate the Second Amendment rights, what rights are being violated by the gun shop owner who is refusing to sell the gun in the first place? Somone please help me with this one?????

    I reserve the right to refuse service to anyone. No one has the "right" to buy my product.

    wolfram.... blade, Here is the answer to your question; You have NO "rights" in MY store,,,,it is a simple as that. Now I cannot descriminate based on your color, sexual orientation, age, disabilities etc., but I,,, have the "right to refuse service to ANYONE" that I want.

    If I don't like the way you comb your hair, the way you wear your pants down around your ankle, the earring in your nose, etc., I can make you leave my store, refuse to sell you anything that is in MY store.

    A few years back there was a gunshop owner in Illinois refused to sell guns to blacks after a black leader said guns should be banned because too many blacks were being killed with them. He was disappointed when the NAACP and ACLU did not sue him.

    I would bet big bucks that almost no gun stores are refusing to sell to anyone who can put the money on the counter. Its capitalism, right?
