In case you missed it, there's a fellow in Pinetop who has banned Obama voters from his gun shop.

Southwest Shooting Authority owner Cope Reynolds told New Times that it's "nothing more than a political statement," but seriously -- no Obama voters.

"Of course, it would be impossible to enforce," Reynolds said. "If they don't say anything, we'll never know. They could purchase whatever they wanted, and they would probably get a big kick out of thinking that they are rubbing it in our face as they walk out the door. Some folks are easily amused that way."

However, if you "own up to it," as Reynolds says, you're outta there.

For this morning's poll, vote for the best one-word reaction to the Obama-voter ban at the gun store. If you don't like any of 'em, feel free to leave your suggestion in the comments section below.
