Apparently the gun haters have decided that since they can’t convince business owners to post anti-gun signs, maybe they should post the signs themselves.
After Oct 1st I started to look for posted signs at my favorite establishments. I frequently go to a local chicken wing place in Greensboro and last week I noticed a simple sicker that pictured a pistol with red circle and line through it. I took it as no firearms allowed.
I was grabbing a to go order so I had already called it in. I was sad as this was going to be my last order as I wasn’t going to support them anymore. I REALLY like their wings. The manager is the one who brought me my order and gave me the customary “come again soon.” Which I replayed “not likely as long as you have that” pointing at the sicker.
She was shocked and asked the hostess if she knew who put that there. She asked me to wait and went to the back. She came back with the chef who is the owner and he said he had no idea how that got there. He removed it and wished me a good day.
The story has a happy ending, but the follow up is even better.
Yesterday, I went back and the manager said she looked at the surveillance video and said late one night a customer put the sticker there just before closing on their way out. They confronted them as they are also a frequent customer. She stated that she does that all over town where ever she goes. The manger asked them not to come back anymore.
There’s a lesson here. If you see a gun ban sign, make sure to question it. It might be some anti-gun jerk posting the sign.
If you are the victim of some gun hater posting a sign like this, please let me know. I can put you in touch with the Grass Roots North Carolina leadership and we can publicly humiliate the person posting the sign. It might not be worth the effort to sue them for Tortious Interference with Business Relationships
Tortious interference with business relationships occurs where the tortfeasor acts to prevent the plaintiff from successfully establishing or maintaining business relationships. This tort may occur when a first party’s conduct intentionally causes a second party not to enter into a business relationship with a third party that otherwise would probably have occurred. Such conduct is termed tortious interference with prospective business relations, expectations, or advantage or with prospective economic advantage.
but we could get them on the news acting like jerks.
I can see how random people might start posting the “This home is proudly gun free” signs on the lawns of people who do crap like that.
UPDATE: Given that lots of people are coming in via Instapundit (Thanks for the link, Glenn!) it’s possible that many of you don’t know North Carolina law. In NC, any No Guns sign has the force of law. There is not standard mandated sign, like Texas’s 30.06 sign. Passing a “No Guns” sign while carrying a gun on a CHP is a Class 1 Misdemeanor.
When I was young I got to visit the Yuma Territorial Prison. Dad told me that they used to rivet shut the doors of the lifers. I don’t know if that’s true, but I’m thinking that this guy is a good candidate for the same treatment.
The Greenville Police Department and the Pitt County District Attorney have convicted a man of three counts of robbery with a dangerous weapon and felony conspiracy.
He’s not what you would call a “model citizen.” If there’s a community that he’s a pillar of, I don’t want to live there.
He’s such a mess that even the reporters have noticed.
(Suspect) was first charged and convicted of armed robbery as an adult in 1977. Greenville Police say since that time (Suspect) has been arrested at least 25 times. They say that (Suspect) has spent 21 years in jail or prison between 1977 and 2013.
He’s spent 21 of the last 36 years in prison, and by the sounds of things he’s spent the remainder 15 years doing his best to get back in.
If I had to guess, it wasn’t a shooting over a parking spot.
Police say they are looking for a man who is wanted for the murder of a 17-year-old.
Why do I say that?
Any guesses as to what I think it was about?
Just when you think that criminals can go no lower.
Officers with the Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police Department have arrested a man they say burglarized a home and stole the homeowner’s vehicle, all while the homeowner was dead inside the house.
He saw that the trash can was still out on the curb and the mailbox was stuffed full. So naturally he decided to rob the place. I can only imagine that he thought the dead homeowner was a bonus because dead people make poor witnesses.
He probably doesn’t even feel bad for what he did.
How does one do this?
(Suspect), 20, of 115 Karen Court in Raleigh is accused in an arrest warrant of causing a lacerated liver and internal bleeding in a child he was taking care of at the time.
How hard to you have to strike a 30 month old child in order to lacerate a liver?
He was wanted for a bunch of other crimes and was only found because he was arrested for this child abuse.
Maybe we should see how hard you have to beat a 20 year old in order to lacerate his liver.
The gun haters like to tell us that it’s not criminal activity that leads to violence, it’s “arguments.” They imply that since we all get into arguments, we are all potential murderers. It’s for that reason that we need to ban guns.
(Suspect) told authorities that he and the victim, 24-year-old (Victim), of Lincolnton, had gotten into an argument over a car and money, when things escalated. That’s when, officials say, (Victim) was struck.
So is it true? Just any old argument can lead to violent crime?
Ordinary people do not settle disagreements by trying to kill each other. We have a name for people who act that way, criminals. And they generally have a track record before they graduate to attempted murder.
A Durham murder suspect has been arrested in Brooklyn, NY.
A Durham man was arrested in Brooklyn, N.Y., on Friday morning and charged with shooting another man to death in Durham on Nov. 3
He shot the victim “multiple times.”
Looks like he’s been convicted of felony charges “multiple times.”
People who know me know that I have a special dislike for “confidence men.” It takes a special level of sleazy to lie to another person’s face to take their money.
Police are on the hunt again for two men arrested and charged last week with running several “flim-flam” schemes in recent months.
Read the story to get a flavor of their scams.
It’s people like these who make me wish we could bring back public flogging.
