Not long after this last election, I was in the local gun shop talking to the owner. He related to me a story that still has me shaking my head.
It seems that he had a somewhat regular customer who was a hunter, but who, because of his union affiliation, was also a die-hard Obama voter. (You know how union sheep are...)
Well this guy had been in the shop several times before the election, always touting Obama. However the day after the election, apparently this guy came in and wanted to buy a new AR-15 and extra magazines. He told the store owner and others who were within earshot that he wanted to buy one quick, before Obama and the Democrat Congress got around to banning them.
When the owner asked him if he didn't vote for Obama, the guy readily admitted that he did and said that he was glad that Obama had won. He claimed that there is more at stake than guns, and that Obama will be good for union workers. But the guy still wanted to buy an AR-15 before the Obama administration bans them.
I actually think a little bit less of the shop owner once he told me that yes, he did sell an AR-15 to the Obama supporter.
I mean it's bad enough that Obama is going to hurt gun owners and make AR-15's and similar guns expensive and difficult (or impossible) to get, but then the shop owner lets this guy buy one knowing that there are thousands of real Americans who opposed Obama because of his stance on guns who are seeking these rifles right now. I know that business is business, but when someone hoses you (and your business), you shouldn't reward him with a good deal...not when many people who were fighting for your continued right to do business are also desiring your product, now more than ever.
In my opinion, the Obama supporter should have been sent out of the gun shop with a boot in his ass and a sign for his house that said: "No guns in here. I voted for Obama!"
