JAMESVILLE, N.C. — A North Carolina gun shop is defending an explicit message posted on their sign, saying it will not come down.
WNCT reported that Mackey’s Landing Firearms in Martin County on the eastern side of the state has had the electronic billboard up for a couple weeks.
The message reads, “Life’s a b****! Let’s not elect one! Republican, because not everyone can be on welfare.”
WJZY reported that the gun shop said the sign is a form of freedom of speech and they do not plan on taking it down anytime soon.
“It was just very shocking to see it,” Melanie Harris told WNCT. “Love your guns. Love your message. Probably wouldn’t choose that vocabulary.”
