California animal shelter bans pet adoptions for gun rights supporters | U.S. & World

Second Amendment

A California animal shelter announced that it would refuse to grant adoptions to people who feel 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,” the Shelter Hope Pet Shop said in a statement posted to its website in May.

“Our community of Thousand Oaks became part of all the other cities in America, now scarred with the reputation of a mass killing. The shooter that killed 12 innocent humans at The Borderline Bar, came to our shop for community service hours. We believe he had scouted many locations and we were one of them. We changed our policy about volunteering after that incident, but now we feel confident to go even further than that.”


The Borderline Bar & Grill shooting occurred in 2018, according to a report.

All those who wish to adopt from the shelter will be required to submit to a pre-screening process and hourlong interview to determine their sentiments on gun control.

“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. We have a choice of who we work with,” the statement read.

The United States supports guns and not communities, according to the shelter, and prospective pet owners must be willing to put their community first.

“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,” the statement read. “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.”

Additional requirements for adoption include being at least 25 years old, having a current driver’s license, and submitting to a physical home inspection, according to the shelter.

The National Rifle Association called the anti-gun requirement ludicrous, according to a report.


“Having this asinine political litmus test comes at the expense of needy and homeless dogs and cats,” NRA spokeswoman Amy Hunter said.
