After we received a “No comment” from the Midwest novelty company that distributes an “Illegal Immigrant Hunting Permit” sticker a local Colorado gas station was caught selling last week, many people (include our Facebook site) took to social media to raise awareness about Central States Novelty, the company identified in the following report.
The response, according to updates we received from our readers, took the company off guard, jamming the phone lines on Friday afternoon and clogging their inboxes. The company’s main site still lists a phone number and is also taking email requests.
We have sent several emails to the company for comment, but we have yet to hear from them. However, we did receive the following email thread from an anonymous individual who wrote to the company on Friday afternoon:

My name is Ben and I own a convenience store in Northern California. I\’m interested in purchasing some of your hunting permit stickers that I see plastered all over the internet. I\’ve got the feeling I could sell a ton of these here. We got a bunch of damn illegals!
First off, how much and how quickly can you get them here?
Thanks for your time and God Bless!

Thanks for your inquiry.
The stickers cost $3 each. If the total is over $200, shipping is free.
We require a tax ID # and credit card payment before shipping.
Depending on the quantity you need, it may take a little time to produce more stickers.

We don’t know if the request was serious or not, but it looks like the company has no problem continuing to push its racist product even after several incidents, and they can always produce more, “depending on the quantity.”
