New gun signs could pose problems

Published 11:35am Wednesday, October 2, 2013

Dear editor,

I see all these new “gun signs” in county buildings, businesses, etc., that read “No fire arms allowed.”

Really? Now, someone like myself would turn around and put my gun back in the car but a criminal would just go in and possibly harm others, while us law abiding people wouldn’t have our guns to protect others or ourselves.

So really, how stupid are these signs?

People that don’t care would do harm and just ignore them, while responsible law abiding people that carry firearms would be unprepared to deter those criminals.

Isn’t that like saying a police officer can’t carry a gun or chase criminals?

People who post these signs may want to re-think it.
