DOUGLASVILLE, GA, October 29, 2014 – Last Friday, Bundy Cobb, a Douglasville, GA resident, was told by poll workers that he must remove his hat with the wording “NRA Instructor” on it before he would be allowed to enter the voting booth.

Cobb is a certified firearms trainer through the National Rifle Association (NRA) and wears the hat in part to promote his business, True Aim Defense.

The Douglas County board of elections supervisor Laurie Fulton defended the decision as a move of extra precaution and stated, “The courts have found that anything that suggests association with the NRA in many people’s perceptions is associated with the Republican party. So in an overabundance of caution Mr. Cobb was asked to remove the hat so that no one could interpret that we were playing any favoritism over one party versus the other.”

Cobb obeyed the request in order to vote, but later reached out to Atlanta’s local Fox News affiliate to express his distress over the situation. Cobb stated, “It’s ridiculous, my hat advertises my business.” Cobb went on to say that the NRA has nothing to do with political parties and stated, “I know personally some Democrats who are members of the NRA.”
