'No Guns Allowed' signs inviting to criminals

Published: February 17, 2013

Those who post “No Guns Allowed” signs on their premises are fooling themselves if they think those signs will stop an armed criminal or armed mentally ill people. The signs will stop the law-abiding public, but criminals and mentally ill people will use this as an invitation to enter without harm to them knowing that no one inside is armed. Even if an armed guard is inside, a criminal will take him out first and then do his shooting. Those who post “No Guns Allowed” should rethink their decision.
