A Virginia gun range found themselves fighting off Cop Block and BLM activists on social media and review websites after posting a ‘Not Welcome Here’ notice in their store.
The notice read:
“If you are anti-police, anti-military, associated with Cop Block [or] Black Lives Matter, Stay off my range you are not welcome here, period.”
Since the posting of the sign, activists have flooded both review pages and social media of the Colonial Heights gun store (known as The Smoking Gun), spamming the pages with one-star reviews and hateful comments.
Part-owner Jeff Picchi stood by his notice, telling LEO Affairs that the recent killing of a state trooper in the region was the “last straw”. A former lawman himself, Picchi pledges unwavering support to law enforcement officers, “no matter what.”
When asked if the smear campaign was hurting business, he began to laugh. “God yes”, he said, citing that he couldn’t take the fake reviews down fast enough.
Reviews for the business can be found here.
