Dumber than dirt leftist morons. They are the enemies within, a cancer that will kill this nation and is too virulent and widespread to be eradicated.

Mostly :iagree: They just need incentive to rethink their positions.

This is a bit late but I just read this and I have to say that the two Bank of America banks I do business with in Houston are NOT posted. I have been to one other in Houston and it was not posted.

well, according to a few liberals, all they need is a sign right? This should prevent any robberies

I know that was posted as a joke and it aligns with my thinking, but what if I'm wrong? What if armed robbers are actually really smart and play the law like an investment banker plays the market?

What if armed robbers strike where 30.06/.07 are posted because they carefully researched and discovered 30.06 and 30.07 don't apply to the general public, only license holders? Not having an LTC is almost a license to commit mayhem! Quick, license us all before it's too late for the children!

I jest, of course, but what if it were that simple, post a sign? We'd all be perfectly safe in what we just thought were Piers Morgan's anti-gun delusions.

And, somewhere, over a rainbow, bluebirds fly...

If the robber does not wear a cap then the sign would not apply! :evil2:

Another lost to the criminal class U.S. city.

Sigh..., thankfully I'll never go there.

What, you say I won a free trip there, all expenses paid and more...no, no thanks.

The only good thing is it doesn't go into effect immediately, so the small business owners have time to close shop in an orderly way and move someplace safer and saner.
When plunder becomes a way of life for a group of men in a society,
over the course of time they create for themselves a legal system that authorizes it
and a moral code that glorifies it. - Frédéric Bastiat

I hope these business close up shop and leave.

Their being forced into criminal abidance is nonsense...

Were I were in the business of selling necessary this or that, but you as the government made certain I was reduced to absolute victim-hood, adios...Your community can do without me and my business.

Then, when the dirt bags have no easy marks, can't find cigarettes and beer easy to steal, or victims to hold up, I'd laugh and laugh and laugh...
