    So sad...

    I know some of the members here are from North Carolina and are used to seeing this at parks... This kind of backwards thinking by the government saddens me.

    My friend posted this picture on her MySpace account under the title "Welcome to North Carolina." She was trying to make a joke about the sex offenders sign. She has a daughter who is 18 months and was trying to joke about it. I know she gets nervous about her daughter and from what shes told me, also the fact that the state feels they need to post a sign like that. She mentioned that "Well wouldn't a person like that just ignore the sign anyhow? I mean they don't wear tattoos on their forheads."

    I decided I'd wait for another time to discuss the other sign.

    Potential offenders and convicted, will ignore such signs just as badguys with guns will ignore signs.

    Whether those in power consider this gives a ''feelgood'' factor for visitors I don't know.

    Looks like the local dogs know how to treat such signs !

    The combination of the two signs is just SOOO telling ... really illustrates the sheeple mindset.

    It looks like someone was trying to take down the CC sign.

    Sheeesh...........that assumes they can read!

    The logic is flawed on both signs. It's just disgusting politicians put signs up like that just to gain votes by making someone (sheep) "feel" safe.........*&^%$%^(*%$#@#$%*(

    Suggestion for Simplifying Things...

    Why not just have one big sign to cover everything that says:

    Crime Prohibited

    Unfortunately, in the opinion of the anti's there is little difference in the two prohibited groups...

    Time to renew my NRA membership (for the third time this year)..

    What about non-concealed Handguns or concealed Long guns?

    WOW if I were a pedophile that's the first place I'd be....

    why not put it in NEON:

    SEX OFFENDERS AND FELONS COME HERE, UNARMED PEOPLE, SECLUDING TREES AND KIDS----BYOB

    WHEN WILL THEY LEARN?

    Yeah. This friend of mine is quite the lefty and I've actually never carried around her either just to avoid the claw marks. I can only imagine the look on her face when I see her and say "Well sh*t. Looks like I'm gonna watch from here."

    Neon-sign is a decent idea. I like that quite a bit. haha Then you just get a whole bunch of us hangin out there and watch for outsiders to show up.... hehehe Is it considered a gang assualt if you harm something that preys on children? I mean no DA can seriously argue that a pedophile is human.....

    It would make it a little easier, the NEON sign that is, all we'd have to do is wait for Michael Jackson to show up and we'll know it works

    I'm imagining Michael Jackson "darting" between cover in hail of bullets using the moonwalk. We all know the famous sound he would make if he got hit.
