    You should print up "No illegal guns" signs instead. Then you're scott free.

    You should ask the judge for an extension.

    Don't those printing presses happen to break down at some of the oddest times?

    Love the comments!

    I'm actually OK with my employers policy, the building is secure, you're not getting in without an access card. The company is very pro-gun, there are many collectors and carriers there, the owner has an impressive collection and we have a machinist who is also a gunsmith, it's not unusual to see a few employee handguns on his workbench.

    SA is very high, if anything suspicious is even suspected we have security guards and cops swarming the place, I feel perfectly safe, and there is no restriction on carrying in your vehicle.

    Is there something special about your printed signs (subliminal, or otherwise) that result in compliance by the very criminals that blatantly ignore all other signs?

    I'm sure you're good at what you do ... but are you THAT good? Really?

    Thank goodness Sandy Hook Elementary school doors were locked and had signs ... Oh, wait ...
    Asked by a CNN reporter "What do you feel when you shoot a terrorist"?, the Marine sniper simply shrugged & replied "recoil".

    Now more than ever, we are at war on our home soil ... WAKE UP & arm our troops when they are on home soil!

    I think I get it - since your employer is a gunsmith & since he repairs employees' guns he's getting a little tired of all the extra work he's been getting from them. With gunbuster signs displayed he can fire those employees that bring their guns to him for repair.

    I wonder if this has anything to do with the recent "Sin City" articles about St Louis, and the stats that show St Louis with one of the highest rates of violent crimes per capita?

    Meet me in St. Louis -- for a most sinful time! - NBC News.com

    "St. Louis came in second for wrath (the number of violent crimes per 1,000 residents) and envy (instances of theft per 1,000 residents)"
