President Obama Named ‘Firearms Salesman of the Year’ by New Hampshire Gun Shop
A gun shop in New Hampshire has named President Barack Obama “Firearms Salesman of the Year.” It is, of course, a sarcastic title awarded for his gun control efforts, which has sent millions of concerned Americans to gun shops seeking guns and ammo in case gun control legislation is passed.
One poster on the front window of the gun shop depicts Obama as “Firearms Salesman of the Year.” Below the president’s picture are two semi-automatic rifles.
A second poster to the left shows head shots of Adolf Hitler, Josef Stalin and Mao Zedong. The caption below the photo reads, “All Experts Agree, Gun Control Works.”
The gun shop, Collectable Arms & Ammo, is located in Merrimack, N.H. and the owner is not apologizing for the display.
“We like to have the creative storefronts which are sort of fun in one aspect and in another aspect if we have an opportunity to make a statement we’ll do that as well,” Cox told CBS Boston.
However, Cox did clarify that he is not connecting Obama with the three infamous dictators as each display sends its own message. In fact, he said the Obama display was the shop’s way of thanking the president for sending gun sales skyrocketing with all the gun control talk.
Cox went on to say that Hitler, Zedong and Stalin are good examples that prove an armed citizenry is better able to protect itself from tyranny. Each of the infamous dictators implemented gun control as a means of consolidating power.
As far as complaints from residents, Cox says it’s not coming down.
“I certainly would not ask them to change a flag hanging on their homes or a sign in their yards because I am offended by it or disagree with it,” he added. “I will support anybody’s freedom of speech.”
