    Stickers to add to "no legal guns" signs

    I was getting some stuff from Vistaprint this afternoon, and among the "free" offers in my inbox was one for return address labels. I searched for "firearm" and came up with only one option.

    Using the editor feature, I went to bold arial 9pt font, centered, and entered the following text:

    You are entering a victim disarmament zone.
    This business is now legally responsible to protect you against crime.

    I'm not sure I'll actually be bold enough to use them, but I could see adding them to the lower part of the circle-slash gun signs. It amuses me to think about the reactions of various people.

    Question

    Does this seem like a good idea?

    I've heard that someone (no. I'm not saying who) passed out return address stickers that said "WARNING - Beyond this point only criminals have guns!" and suggested that they might be pasted over or next to the gun-buster signs.

    Yes, it might be considered defacing private property, but I'm not sure anybody would want to press the issue over a single return address sticker. Of course, the added cost of having to get the maintenance crew to scrape it off may upset them more than anything else.

    stay safe.

    Are you willing to sell/send any of these to others that may be willing to use them?

    Aside from the "tagging" or graffiti charge, you may also have to worry about running afoul of a "post no bills" ordinance. Many cities have statutes that prohibit the unauthorized posting of signs, or "flyleafing". These laws were mostly enacted in the 20's and late 40's when communist and socialist organizations were posting a lot of flyers to organize the labor movement. There was another rash of enactment of these laws in the 1960s when the hippies and "alternative" communities were posting a lot of flyers for their activities too.

    maybe a card you could leave for the manager saying: your prohibiting guns has placed me at risk, and forced me to shop elsewhere, you have lost X number of dollars today.

    Attention criminals

    I always carry a few of these in the event I enter a bldg with a NFA sign on the door. I recentlyspoke to the security supervisor at a local hospital and asked him to attach these stickers to the signs on the hospital entrance doors. I had about 1000 printed for a few bucks. Only 2" X 4" but just right for the message. Mailed out several to others on this site. PM me with an address if you would like a few.

    Hadn't thought about it 'til you asked, but I suppose I could.
    When they arrive I'll figure out how they'd fit into a #10 envelope & get back to you.
    Depending on how many fit, I'm thinking something like send me a SASE + 50c ($1?).
