    'Black Rifles Matter' sign causes controversy. Remember the sign not the banned topic

    BOOTHBAY HARBOR (WGME) -- A sign in Boothbay Harbor is raising some eyebrows. Seemingly a play on the Black Lives Matter slogan, it reads "black rifles matter: Yes, we have 'em. No, you can't take 'em."

    Some local businesses are worried the sign sends the wrong message and could make some tourists feel unwelcome.

    The man behind the sign, Linc Sample, insists it has nothing to do with race and that black rifles or black guns are just another word for semi-automatic weapons.

    Black wives matter, especially if you are a black wife.

    Beauty is only skin deep and in the eye of the beholder, so there should be no controversy.
