    ‘Want to P— Off Obama? Buy a Gun,’ Simpsonville, SC shop sign reads.

    It implies you can stick it to the man, so to speak, by coming in and buying a gun. And it turns out the sales prop is working. The sign reads “Want to piss off Obama? Buy a gun.”

    “It’s mainly just to sell guns, but there’s a little bit of political connotation to it also,” said Mark Teal, owner of Simpsonville Gun and Pawn.

    It is AFAIK original to me. Compromise is failure on the installment plan, particularly when dealing with so intractable an opponent as ignorance. - Nightmare

    That is like saying you are just a gun owner.

    So I think it is more than "just" merchandizing.

    It's original thinking outside the box, shows initiative, unique and stimulating approach, targeting the market, fresh and bold, puts the sizzle on the platter.

    If it is just anything, it is just a lot differentant and likely just more effective than the marketing done by just any other FFL in the area.
