Subject: 3x5 card??
( snip of Original Post )
Welcome to OCDO. Thanks for thinking about a common issue, and for thinking outside the box.
Seriously, you need to go back and think a bit more. Imagine a blue-haired granny who read one of the cards you propose handing out. What's she gonna do -- have an epifany and suddenly realize she needs to run down to the gun store and get her a heater, or think you just handed her a threat to kill/rob her?
There are a number of places that sell "No Guns - No $$" business cards. Buckeye Firearms is generally considered to be the originator of them so I'm giving you a link to them http://www.buckeyefirearms.org/Gun-Stuff-Mall#ngnm
. If you want you can get permission from them to make them specific to your state.
Another, more "street theater" method has been to make up something like a return address label that ways something along the lines of "WARNING/Beyond This Point/Only Criminals Have Guns" (the "/" indicates a new line"). Stick them on the entrances either over the "No Guns" sign or at eye level. It's certainly going to annoy the property owner who has to scrape it off, but it might get someone's attention before that happens.
Please don't think I'm trying to discourage your efforts. All I'm saying is continue to think it out a bit before going with the first thing that pops into your head. Remember, we (the "movement") are more interested in education than in scare tactics.
Keep up the good fight.
