Cherokee Guns, a Murphy, NC gun shop, has caused quite a stir by posting a large billboard criticizing the so-called “Squad” of far-left minority legislators, calling the socialist ladies “idiots” for their anti-American stances on issues such as firearms freedom.

The billboard refers to Reps. Ilhan Omar (D-MN), Rashida Tlaib (D-MI), Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY), and Ayanna Pressley (D-MA) as the “four horsemen.” It says they have “cometh” with that word crossed out and replaced with “are idiots.” The billboard concludes with “Signed, the Deplorables.”
Cherokee Guns has triggered many snowflakes already as a result of their billboard, including the anti-2nd Amendment Coalition to Stop Gun Violence. They called the billboard “violent” despite the fact that it contains no threatening language whatsoever.
“Disgusting anti-government violent rhetoric from Cherokee Guns in North Carolina,” the coalition’s said in a Facebook post on Monday. “Threats against members of Congress, particularly minority members are (rising) and it is driven by the president’s racial rhetoric.”
But others on Facebook appreciated the defiant message of Cherokee Guns, as Trump-loving Americans refuse to bend the knee to the liberal agenda hostile to the U.S. Constitution.
“Freedom of speech,” Denise Piccoli Patterson wrote. “The truth always hurts.”
Wade Nordby wrote: “I shared. THANK U THANK U THANK U THANK U. We The People have been quiet for way too long!!!!”
“The WORLD LOVES TRUMP!” exclaimed Aimee Wilkes. “Your little tag team group of cry babies better get used to losing…”
“This is great. Don’t mind the haters, they’re just doing what they do best,” wrote Jamaal R. Porter.
Emboldened by the controversy, Cherokee Guns is doubling down on their message and reveling in the attention caused by their patriotic, pro-Trump billboard. They posted a follow-up message on social media imploring all “Infidels for Trump” to come by the storefront to get a bumper sticker version of the billboard provided they pledge their support for Trump and eat a piece of bacon in the store.
Cherokee Guns refuses to be intimidated by any liberal control freaks wetting themselves over their provocative billboard that is being called racist by fake news outlets. The owner has given explicit instructions to staff members to deal with angry, intolerant liberals who may show up.
“Show them the door, or your gun, and tell them they can buy their own billboard and pay for it like I did,” an employee said regarding how they will react to liberal snowflakes if they show up at the gun shop.
A previous Cherokee Guns billboard featured a muscle-clad Donald Trump flexing in front of an American flag making hay of the Russian collusion hoax: “No collusion. No obstruction. Just guns!!!” Their ad campaigns are undoubtedly successful at garnering publicity, and may soon become the norm at gun shops across the country.
If Democrats Win, Will Guns Sales Go Through the Roof?
No matter who wins in 2020, the biggest story of this election cycle has been the record levels of gun sales. In a piece titled “Guns Sales Break Records With Gun Control Legislation Likely If Democrats Win”, Newsweek highlights the meteoric rise of gun sales in 2020 and how these sales will only go up under a Biden administration.
It’s likely that a Biden win on November 3, 2020 will give life to gun control measure such as universal background checks, assault weapons bans, and national gun buybacks. Scott Reeves of Newsweek noted that “coronavirus pandemic, urban riots and the likelihood of increased regulation if the Democrats win the White House, regain control of the Senate and hold the House” have led to the unprecedented firearms sales. A Biden win would only accelerate this trend, as people become frightened by the prospect of gun control.
Through September, background checks recorded by the National Instant Criminal Background Check System (NICS) reached 28.826 million. This total surpassed 2019’s record of 28.369 million, representing a 28 percent increase, according to the FBI report. As of September 30, Illinois was leading the nation in background checks with 5.6 million. Reeves noted that other states such as Kentucky (2.364 million) checks, Texas (1.730 million), Florida (1.386 million), Indiana (1.203 million), California (1.187 million) and Pennsylvania (1.030 million), were also experiencing significant upticks in gun sales.
Since NICS came into effect on November 1998, a total of 361.830 million background checks for all purposes have been completed since the program began in November 1998.
Zogby Analytics provided some more data showing how enthusiastic Americans are about buying guns:
Zogby Analytics in Utica, New York found that the number of gun owners increased 3.9% between October 2019 and October 2020 to 31.3% of the population. The number of individuals in a household keeping a gun at home, work, vacation cottage or club for personal protection, hunting or target shooting increased 7% to 42.2% in the last year. Membership in the National Rifle Association, a gun rights advocacy group, increased 6% to 17.7% in the last year, Zogby’s polling found.
“While there is fierce debate in Washington D.C. and among voters about what certain types of guns and accessories constitute ‘assault weapons,’ adults in the U.S. are buying and keeping more guns,” Jonathan Zogby declared.
Josh Horwitz, executive director of the Coalition to Stop Gun Violence, an anti-Second Amendment organization, is of the opinion that uncertainty brought about by the Wuhan virus pandemic, riots, and the election are contributing factors to the rise in gun sales.
“Typically, gun sales rise in times of fear,” he said to Newsweek. “We live in a time when there’s a lot of fear, including fear that there might be more gun regulation with a Democratic President and Democratic majorities in Congress. And, there’s been a lot of unrest.”
Americans actions speak louder than their words. Even if Joe Biden does the unthinkable (and the very unlikely) by winning on November 3, his administration will encounter stiff resistance from gun-owning Americans across the political spectrum.
