    Greetings all. Just wondering how many anti-RKBA types would be willing to advertise the fact that they live in a firearm free home. Nothing to ostentatious, no flashing lights or anything. Just something about the size of a realtor's sign, with the title of this thread printed on it, in their front yards. Sort of a "put your money where your mouth is" concept. Thoughts anyone?

    I'd love to see that! Most likely never happen though.

    And while they're at it, they could just tattoo targets on their foreheads. :uhoh:

    Not many I'd wager. Although I'm not particularly crazy about the idea of anyone making me put a sign up advertising the PRESENCE of firearms in my home either.

    People are already advertising their longing to be a victim at work with the cute little no gun signs.

    I see them quite a bit during election-time. It's not as clear as "Proud to be a gun-free home", but it says much the same thing - what they DO say is

    Yes, hoping that one of us will save their bacon when it comes down to it.

    I keep trying to get local business that post to use this sign. So far, no takers.

    Feel free to safe the file and print your own (I recommend coward yellow card stock), maybe you'll have better luck.

    If anyone thinks I must be unarmed because of my political stance, they're welcome to kick my door in some night. I'd be happy to... correct their misconceptions about liberal Democrats.

    Seriously, if you yoke the 2A to the Republican party, its fortunes will mirror those of the Repubs. And since the Republicans have screwed the pooch about as badly as possible and are now rapidly declining, that would be a bad idea.

    Yeah, what does that have to do with anything? Anybody who advertises they have no guns is advertising to criminals that they can do whatever they want to them with little or no consequence - rob, rape, murder, whatever. It's the same as tattooing a target to your head.

    Raytracer,

    I may have to sneak one of those over to the local Whole Paychecks Market and attach it above their "Please Mug Our Customers" window markings. :neener:

    I do not advertise I have guns at home because I am afraid of thieves. I do not tell my neighbors and tell my kids to tell no one. Of course the wife tells the most juvenile delinquent kid on the street about my toys :) Guns are sought after. Once I saw thieves go into a vacant apartment, go through the wall to steal a gun collection.

    I wonder whose house is more likely to be undefended by firearms, Bill Richardson's or Rudy Guiliani's.....:scrutiny:

    Trick question. You really think Rudy's bodyguards are going to be unarmed? :rolleyes:

    Do what I do. Ignore the signs. If I'm carrying concealed correctly, they won't ever have the chance to see my firearm. Now, if the store has a stripsearch policy, I may be hesitant to enter.

    There's a jewelry store nearby that my wife likes to frequent - it has on the door one of the most loophole-free signs I have ever seen - basically says no guns. I have asked the manager if he thought the sign would stop a criminal coming to rob him - got a dumb look as a response. I carry there anyway.

    Anyone who takes such a sign to have that meaning at my house will be sorely surprised.

    For what it's worth - I wouldn't want to have a sign saying that "This home has guns" either.

    raytracer - that's great.

    That's getting plastered at Costco as some point. ;)

    (nahh.... I wouldn't do that - aside from it being possibly illegal, they never actually posted "No guns" signs here in Florida because they don't mean anything.)

    I don't know... I perhaps would consider putting that first sign on my property.


    Remember--- it never says that *I* am not armed.


    Signs like that are "bait." You better believe that a burgular would see a No Guns Household sign as an invitation--- unless they were specifically stealing guns similar to a crime ring that's been going on around here. In that case, they just wait for you to be gone and break in.


    Get a gun safe and bolt that sucker in all.

    Here's one for the owners to wear when they're away from their nice safe gun free house.

    Please understand that I meant no disrespect to the REAL non-politico driven democrats out there.

    My meaning is that the elected dems tend to be more aggressive in the restriction of the rights we have, and I fully understand that the repubs have supported the restriction of those rights. However they have INITIATED fewer restrictions than the dems.

    Apologies to those I have offended.
