Putting Their Money Where There Mouth Is

A Geek With Guns pointed me to Southwest Shooting Authority of Arizona.

Seems AGWG is upset with SSAOA.  They recently relocated from Luna, NM to Pinetop AZ, reportedly looking for more ‘freedom-loving’ folk.

SSAOA made an announcement after the recent election, as follows:

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

Southwest Shooting Authority of Arizona

Now, if you read this blog, you know I’m all for free speech, free markets and protest.  A Geek With Guns thinks it’s inadvisable to reject the President’s supporters out-of-hand.   As Mr. Burg stated:

Statements like the one made by Southwest Shooting Authority of Arizona reinforces the stereotype that all gun owners are hardcore Republicans and therefore delegates the issue of gun rights to an “us” versus “them” debate.

Of course, only a fool would patronize his establishment announcing they had voted for The President in the process.  I happen to know a couple folks (a minority, I grant you) who are pro-gun, but didn’t care to vote for Governor Romney.

I remember a close friend of yore, who voted similarly for William Jefferson Clinton, because they just couldn’t take George H. W. Bush.  It happens.  Not everyone is a single-issue voter.

But, we’re still a free society, and we may patronize any business we see fit.  Or not.

  1. “Southwest Shooting Authority of Arizona” “AUTHORITY?” Oh really? Sound like a bunch of statist idiots to begin with. Mighty impressed with themselves…

    And yes, they can accept or refuse any customers they like. Dumb shits.

    The truth, far as I’m concerned, is that a “vote” for either wing of the carrion bird of war on people was self defeating… whether you like to shoot or just like to breathe.

    Both wings of this vulture have no problem digesting any and all of us if we object to being controlled, and these folks are doing just fine encouraging that.

    You couldn’t pay me to go into that place.

  2. Is Pinetop so big he can really afford to run off business? I didn’t vote for the big zero but if I did, I sure wouldn’t tell the owner of the local gun emporium.
