A New Mexico gun shop owner says that he is “proud to offend” supporters of Barack Obama. A sign outside Cope Reynolds’ store reads “Pre-Osama bin Biden sale.” The sale is over but the sign is still up.

“If this sign offended people, I am damn proud of it,” said Reynolds in an interview with The Daily Times. Reynolds explained that “a lot of it is because of his Muslim upbringing.”

Reynold told KOAT that when he took down the sign he would probably replace it with something more offensive.
