Good for him. I salute his honesty and bravery. The backlash could be interesting but does anyone want to guess at how fast he gets his FFL pulled?
There are no line-items on an FFL renewal asking how many customers you turned away or if you have discriminatory sales practices. I just completed my FFL renewal paperwork, and it’s the typical “Are you a citizen? Have you been adjudicated mentally defective? How many guns have you sold in the last 3 years? How many have you bought?”
If they pull his FFL, it’s purely political, and while I’m not saying that the BATFE hasn’t pulled FFLs for less, the shop owner would have a lawsuit in a pretty little wrapped box if they cited his refusal to sell to specific persons as their reason.
Just like you can choose to go to KFC if Church’s puts up a sign saying they won’t serve white people or Moe’s Southwest if Taco Bell puts up a sign saying they won’t server non-Hispanics, this shop owner can refuse to serve anyone on the grounds of intelligence and that diminutive Obama-voter can go to Billy Bob’s Diner and Gun Shop down the road.
