    What if

    If you came to your friends house and saw a sign that said

    NO WEAPONS
    WITHOUT CONSENT
    OF PROPERTY OWNER



    What would you do?
    My reasons to OC
    1. to raise awareness of the legality of open carry in Michigan
    2. To raise awareness that good people carry guns
    3. A deterrent to people so that I won't be targeted
    4. Because it's more comfortable than CC in most situations
    5. Because I can and want to
    6. Because it's perfectly legal
    7. Self defense

    Probably call the government because my friend has apparently been possessed by aliens. Or maybe the mental hospital because he's gone off the deep end... again...
    Either that or just call/text him and ask him what in the world was going on...

    That's a rather strange friend.

    Depending on how close we were I'd probably ask them what the point of the sign was.

    I think I would get his unconditional consent...

    Arms discourage and keep the invader and plunderer in awe, and preserve order in the world as well as property... Horrid mischief would ensue were the law-abiding deprived of the use of them.

    Now, what if he rents or leases a house and his property owner is the one who post that sign? Is that legal?

    Probably depends on the state but in Ohio they cannot prohibit a licensed tenant or his guest from possessing a handgun on the premises according to ORC 2923.126
    (C)(3)(b) A landlord may not prohibit or restrict a tenant who is a licensee and who on or after September 9, 2008, enters into a rental agreement with the landlord for the use of residential premises, and the tenant's guest while the tenant is present, from lawfully carrying or possessing a handgun on those residential premises.

    I'm thinking I'd take the sign down, ring the doorbell, hand it to my friend and say "hey, look what some a$$hole put on your house".

    An implausible possibility. Since such a person could not be a friend, the very premise is impossible by definition.
    Giving up our liberties for safety is the one sure way to let the violent among us win.

    That's funny. Reminds me of a story I just recently saw.

    http://www.snopes.com/business/consu...ns.asp#letter1

    TLDR: Apparently back in the 70s, at Browns games, people would turn the programs into paper airplanes and throw them around. A season ticket holding lawyer sent a letter basically threatening lawsuit if he or someone else was ever injured because of it. The Brown's response was "Attached is a letter we received on Nov. 19, 1974. I feel that you should be aware that some a$$hole is signing your name to stupid letters."

    WHAT IF you give your threads descriptive titles like "NO GUNS sign on friends house" instead of "What if"?
