Won’t tend to Muslims, Clinton backers, says US gun store ad
A US gun store owner has put up a controversial sign and published an advertisement in a daily refusing to sell arms to Muslims and Hillary Clinton backers, saying “we do not feel safe selling to terrorists”.
Paul Chandler, the owner of Altra Firearms in rural Jackson Center, Pennsylvania, said he turns customers away at his door who are Muslim or who are supporting Hillary Clinton for President.
The 54-year-old business owner has posted a sign on the door of Altra Firearms conveying those rules, and he is currently running an advertisement in a local newspaper declaring: “Please NO Muslims or Hillary Supporters? –We do not feel safe selling to terrorists!”.
Chandler said as the owner of a store that brands itself as “politically incorrect firearms”, he is free to turn Democrats and Muslims away.
“She’s clearly stated that she doesn’t think Americans should have what she calls ‘assault weapons’ or even guns themselves,” he said about Clinton. The Democratic nominee, however, has said she believes in people’s right to keep and bear arms, and will not abolish the Second Amendment.
“It’s incrementalism. She will take one gun away and then she’ll take the next gun and the next gun until finally there’s no guns. So if you’re supporting her, I’m not going to arm you,” Chandler was quoted as saying.
