Pet Shop Won’t Sell to NRA Supporters, Threatens to Sue Anyone Who Lies

If you support the National Rifle Association and want to adopt a pet, you won’t be able to get your furry friend from the Shelter Hope Pet Shop in Thousand Oaks, California.

The shop has announced that you will not be eligible to get an animal if you believe that the Second Amendment guarantees the right to own assault rifles. And if you lie about backing the NRA, you will be slapped with a lawsuit.

“We do not support those who believe that the 2nd amendment gives them the right to buy assault weapons. If your beliefs are not in line with ours, we will not adopt a pet to you,” a newsletter notes. “If you lie about being a NRA supporter, make no mistake, we will sue you for fraud. If you believe that it is our responsibility to protect ourselves in public places and arm ourselves with a gun–do not come to us to adopt a dog.”

The newsletter states that “if you are pro guns and believe that no background check is necessary, then do not come to us to adopt. We will grill you before you even get an appointment and visit our rescue. If we ask you ‘do you care about children being gunned down in our schools?’ If you hesitate, because your core belief is that you believe teachers need to carry firearms, then you will not get approved to adopt from us. If you foster for us and believe in guns, please bring our dogs and/or cats back, or we will arrange to have them picked up. Shelter Hope Pet Shop in no way will continue to operate if we are even remotely part of the problem. We support teachers, children, and businesses who provide services to the public, but we’ve had enough of all the senseless killing.”
