Gun shop stages 'Pre-Osama bin Biden' sale
A New Mexico gun shop owner says that he is "proud to offend" supporters of Barack Obama with its sign outside the store which reads "Pre-Osama bin Biden sale! Today, 7 PM - MIDNITE."
And even while the sale is over, the sign remains.
"If this sign offended people, I am damn proud of it," said shop owner Cope Reynolds in an interview with The Daily Times. Reynolds explained that "a lot of it is because of his Muslim upbringing."
"His name is Osama, er ..." began a store patron during an interview. "I mean, Barack Hasam Obama."
"It's actually Hussein Obama," said the cameraman.
"Hussein Obama," continued the patron. "That is a Muslim name."
"It's his background," said another customer. "Part of his background is a Muslim background"
"I think Obama has ... Has terrorist ties," said shop owner Reynolds. "Whether he's Muslim or not is irrelevant."
Reynold told KOAT that when he took down the sign he would probably replace it with "something equally as offensive."
