Cooper Arms owner Dan Cooper backs Obama

Posted on 10/28/2008 8:47:16 AM PDT by Robbin

Cooper Arms owner Dan Cooper backs Obama. Can't post the article due to copy write infringement, But I thought you might want to know that a gun manufacturer is supporting a gun grabber. He said he was he was dazzled by Obama's speech at that year's Democratic National Convention.

Smart thinking.

Cooper Firearms registration numbers probably go directly to the Obamabots.

If this gets out to a majority of gun owners, Cooper will be lucky to make barrels in the future.

Rats tend to complain that people who vote Republican are voting against their own economic interests. That this fellow is backing Obama is proof positive that this is a two-way street. Or maybe he is hoping for a government contract to deliver weapons to the armed forces (?). Seems kind of a faint prospect given that if anything an Obama Administration will be making large custs in defense spending and are very unlikely to show any interest in adding new weaponry or anything else (except maybe some welfare gimmicks) to the defense budget.

When someone is “dazzled” by one great speech....I always find it alarming. Quick judgement of a person....more than likely turns out that person is not who they claim to be.

Nice, an arms business with a shoot-yourself-in-the-foot business strategy.

I can see how 0bama would be good for his business, in a buy-it-while-you-still-can kind of way, but to endorse 0bama is pretty damn shortsighted (no pun intended).

It costs money/promises to get a natural opponent on board and I’m sure axelrod paid up.

Sounds like this guy got the ‘happy ear’ or ‘eargasm’ like a lot of the bots. Happens to everyone now and then and you usually can’t talk them out of what they just heard.

They must be positioning for supplier of the new national police force.

Odinga, er, I mean Obama wants to create a federal police force just as powerful, just as strong and just as well funded as the US Military.

Bye bye cooper firearms. I shall pass this along at the gun sites I belong to.

Mr. Cooper,
we'll see your bolt-action rifle bet...
and raise you a couple thousand Barrett .50 caliber BMG!!!

Cooper Arms hopefully will be the next Smith & Wesson:
1. become the bent-over "do me" beotch of a hyper-liberal politician
2. Lose market-share to the point of bankruptcy
3. Be scooped up at maybe a dime, no a penny, on the dollar
by sane investors/gunmakers.

"History may not repeat itself,
but it certainly does rhyme."

(my imperfect recollection of a quote from Mark Twain)

He gave money earlier in the campaign to Obama. Wonder why he doesn't fess up and just state that he was an Obama supporter from the beginning?

From the link:

WASHINGTON — Dan Cooper, a proud member of the National Rifle Association, has backed Republicans for most of his life. He’s the chief executive of Cooper Arms, a small Montana company that makes hunting rifles.
Cooper said he voted for George W. Bush in 2000, having voted in past elections for every Republican presidential nominee back to Richard Nixon. In October 1992, he presented a specially made rifle to the first President. Bush during a Billings campaign event.

This year, Cooper has given $3,300 to the campaign of Democrat Barack Obama. That’s on top of the $1,000 check he wrote to Obama’s U.S. Senate campaign in 2004, after he was dazzled by Obama’s speech at that year’s Democratic National Convention.

doesn't fess up and just state that he was an Obama supporter from
the beginning?


He's smart enough to fear what happened to Smith & Wesson
when they became lackies of Bill Clinton.
Saying he was ready to joyfully bend over for Obama from
early on in the campaign...even he knows that would be hemlock
(poison!) for his cash flow.

But not smart enough to realize that his "sudden" epiphany
in favor of Obama may mean the demise of sales, then the insolvency
of Cooper Arms.

May his term be short and may another take his place.

(My rough paraphrase of a verse from "The Psalms" that a preacher
said a little old "church lady" mentioned to him as her opinion on
The Clinton Administration.)

Thanks Dan! It was real nice of you to come forward and identify yourself. You have the right to vote for the candidate of your choice. However, I have the right to not buy any of your products as a result of your endorsement. I will not buy any product sold by your company, or any company you are affiliated with, for the rest of my life. I will also do all I can do to get the word out about your endorsement so that others who care about the 2nd Amendment can act accordingly.

Has anyone ever compiled a list of executives or companies who have made similar such decisions? I want to make sure I spend my money right.

Hammel said, "I would rather pay a little higher tax on a higher profit than a lower tax rate on lower profits."

This last line has me shaking my head as a small business owner. Obviously the business owners in the article never considered that they will be paying higher taxes on lower profits if BO is elected.

Thanks for the confirmation. Every nation has it's quislings. For a gun maker to go against our constitutional liberties and support a socialist gun grabber is beyond my capacity to forgive.

A national boycott of this Cooper Arms would be in order.

I tried to contact Cooper Arms but it looks like their server is fried. The “contact” link just sets there stalled.

Someone should send the article to GOA and the NRA. I will be putting up copies at my gun club.

I just wrote them an e-mail...

Hi, I just read where Cooper Firearms is supporting Barak Obama for President?

Good luck with that.....

As a gun builder....I'm having real difficulty in understanding how you can be so uninformed....about Obama's record on guns, and ammo.

Do you realize what Obama thinks of the Constitution of the U.S.A?

Do you know...that Obama has actually stated...that he didn't think anyone should own guns?

I will suggest that you have no idea what you have actually done here...............
