    Bellingham sign at construction site....

    http://www.komonews.com/news/local/U...190117981.html



    BELLINGHAM, Wash. -- A no-trespassing sign posted across the street from a local middle school is raising eyebrows in Bellingham, but police say it is completely legal.

    The sign, which was posted on private property across from Fairhaven Middle School, warns "semi-literate thieves" that four different types of guns are on site four days a week.

    Some parents and residents in the area say having a sign that hints at gun violence so close to young children sends the wrong message.

    "It just seems angry," said Eric Worden, who lives nearby.

    Despite those complaints, police say the sign is completely legal. Officers also say they were called the the property back in December after $400 worth of scrap metal and materials was stolen from the site.

    "It's a no trespassing sign. It's posted on private property. There are no threats being made on the sign," said Mark Young of the Bellingham Police Department.

    I know that reading/comprehension standards have SLIPPED? just a bit since I learned this art but under current slack standards wouldn't it be a MOSTLY literate thief who read and understood this sign on the first reading?

    And does he have another sign in an alternative language?

    RIGHTS don't exist without RESPONSIBILITY!
    If one is not willing to stand for his rights, he doesn't have any Rights.
    I will strive to stand for the rights of ANY person, even those folks with whom I disagree!
    As said by SVG--- "I am not anti-COP, I am PRO-Citizen" and I'll add, PRO-Constitution.
    If the above makes me a RADICAL or EXTREME--- So be it!

    I thought it might be one of SVG's sites.

    Most construction guys I know have something handy, many of them don't have CPL's.....this is why I say it is misleading for people to think CPL numbers are an accurate portrayal of gun carriers.

    Sweet Baboo and I plan on going to get our pics with the sign. My Son in New York want to frame it and put it on his wall. Washington, Land of Freedom. If you don't think so, spend a few days in New York.

    I'm sure the children are outside every day. Walking over to the construction site, and reading the sign. They probably now really believe the peasantry has the right to bear arms, we can't have that happening.

    So take it down "for the children"
    they love our milk and honey, but they preach about some other way of living, when they're running down my country man they're walkin' on the fightin side of me

    Maybe he's tired of having his materials ripped off by the meth-head for scarap and actually IS angry ?
    - If we controlled theives and criminals better, then the construction workers could FEEL safer and be Comfortable about his surroundings and would put that sighn there. Maybe he is being singled out for being different (gun owner).

    The school should use this sign as a "teaching opportunity". Let the kids know early on that people don't having crimes committed against them and there could be consequences.

    That is a great idea.

    Tried to break away today to head over there but wasn't in the cards. If I leave early enough I'll look tomorrow although no one may be working Sats.
