    Cards for Posted Busiensses - Looking for Honest and Balanced Feedback

    I want to have a few cards made up that I can carry for giving to businesses that post "no weapons" signs. Looking for feedback on my first attempt. I'm thick skinned, so don't hold back! Thanks in advance!

    Typo--Should say "Cards for Posted *Businesses*"

    Sorry. Maybe an administrator can fix that?

    protias already has some no guns = no money cards, or can tell you where to get the ones he was giving away.

    For your design, I don't think linking to the TSA is a good idea.
    I'd simply point out that criminals ignore laws, so why would a sign [with a max. $1000 fine] bother them if they're intending to rob & murder,
    and also point out that a store that does NOT post has immunity from liability (include the statute reference).

    But hey, I and my friends will respect your wishes that we - lawfully-armed citizens who are the proven "good guys" - not spend money in your store.

    3 simple messages that maybe even an anti-rights person can understand.

    I have the No Guns = No Money cards, but I really need to stop being lazy and send the ones out I promised I was going to do 6 months ago...

    You can also use the design from here: http://forum.opencarry.org/forums/sh...ights-%28v2%29

    I am a firm believer in the KISS principle...Keep it simple s.....

    If you want to design a new "no guns-no money" type card, you need to make it one that can be read and understood in one glance

    You might consider a visual on one side, like, the gun in a circle with a slash, and large bold "=" and then a large $ in a circle with a slash.

    On the back side you could say something like: "If a law abiding citizen cannot carry for their own, and your, security here, then only criminals will"

    That might even be too much....Keep it Simple

    We have a pretty simple one in VA. It catches the attention and takes only about 5-10 seconds to read.

    I have to agree with this, keep it clean, simple, quick and easy to read at a glance.

    Feel free to use it. I was thinking my cards would be two sided, because a picture is worth 1000 words.

    I appreciate all of the feedback. I will work on updating mine when I have some more free time. I think it makes sense to have many different versions out there, even though the messages are very similar. If a business owner received many copies of the same card they might think it is only one person responsible. If a business owner received multiple different cards with similar messages, they might start to take the potential impact on business a little more seriously.

    I don't think it matters how the message is delivered, as long as it gets there.
    What part of "shall not be infringed" don't you understand?
