Texas Gun Shop Takes It Up a Notch With Latest Sign Blasting Obama

"We've tried to educate people, but they aren't listening."

Popular gun shop Tactical Firearms, based in Katy, Texas, is known for the clever — sometimes controversial — messages posted outside the business.

The gun shop’s latest message slamming President Barack Obama over his handling of the Islamic State has sparked as much controversy as any of the past messages.

“Does one of Obama’s family members have to be beheaded for ‘change’ to happen?” reads the marquee outside Tactical Firearms.

CEO Jeremy Alcede told KHOU-TV he pays attention to the news and determines “what needs to be fixed” and what is "important" before he decides to voice his opinion by posting a message on the marquee.

"We've tried to educate people, but they aren't listening," he said.

To the people who have claimed the sign is offensive, Alcede told parents to use it as an opportunity to teach their kids about what is going on in the world. He did not, however, offer an apology.

"You should show them the news and say this is reality kids. Beheadings happen, but they shouldn’t,” he said.

Alcede is reportedly facing possible foreclosure of his business and is being sued by his business partner for allegedly using profits for personal trips and purchases.
