‘No Shooting’ Signs Seem To Attract Bullets

Maybe they should give reverse psychology a try?

I wonder what the fine is for shooting a government sign? Probably quite high.

I’m a firm believer in the Second Amendment. But, it’s obvious that some people aren’t responsible enough to have a gun. Anyone who’d shoot a sign or anything else that isn’t a legitimate target oughta have his guns and his gun rights revoked forever. (Send his guns to me for safe-keeping.)

Hey Mike – just wanted to say that I’m excited to see that a picture I took (the second one down) has made it to your site.

Right on Bill! Do you have a website you would like me to credit under the picture?

I don’t have a website, but a simple credit to “Bill M.” would suffice.

I’m not sure about taking anyone’s guns away, but I think Blaine has a point. I mean, ok, a sign out in the wilderness, at the entrance to a WMA or some such…your odds are low of accidentally killing or maiming someone when you shoot it. It’s bad, but I get it, ok fine. But a sign at “city limits” seems to imply that if you shoot at the face of it, the bullets will penetrate and go on to land somewhere in said “city.” That, right there, is evidence one is a thoughtless, worthless criminal.

Agreed. I come from a long line of soldiers and gun enthusiasts, so I’ve been around guns all my life. They’re not toys, and they should be treated with more respect. This is a common problem in my town. Thugs with their guns stuck in the back of their pants, thinking they know all there is to know. I don’t believe guns should be banned by any means, but I do think you should have to pass an IQ test. Of course, I feel the same way about people reproducing ;)

That doesn’t say “no shooting” on it, and it doesn’t have any holes though!

It seems like all of the signs in Alaska looked like this.

You’ve noticed that too? Nearly every sign I passed there had at least a dozen holes in it.

Why do people get mad at this and bring up things like, “immature” and the “Second Amendment?” It’s the same as pissing in a public pool.

Has anyone noticed most of those bullet holes look exactly the same apart from size?

Hey Jack, they’re exactly the same (except for the pointless shotgun pellet marks) because they are all very fast solid things hitting a stationary bendy thing. Why is this surprising????

If you put up a sign that says no spitting, people are going to spit.

Shooting a no shooting sign is an act of defiance I can have some respect for.

Why would you have respect for someone who is defiant of the law. So you’re telling me that if you spent your time and money to plant a new lawn at your house and you put up a “Do Not Walk On The Grass” sign, you would respect me if I drove my car all over it? Maybe I could just shoot the sign. Your house would stop any bullets that penetrated the sign.

Law only exists for private property. Small groups of frustrated control freaks don’t get to tell us what do to. Some day we will wake up and realize this.

Ah the fun in yelling Civil Disobedience, well that is until its something you own, or you friend or loved one injured, then the tune changes. Civil Disobedience, the catch phrase of the ignorant and/or immature.
