A buddy just emailed me the below... Don't think I'd put this sign in my yard. But good for a laugh regardless.
I guess the email that it came in kind of adds to the back story of the sign...if it's true. NOTE: This is not my, Snowman23's, neighbor. I don't know "Ralph"....enjoy:
Ralph, My neighbor is a "lefty" of sorts (Obama bumper stickers,
gung-ho socialized medicine, "guns should be banned", etc.).
So last week I put this sign up in my yard after one of his anti-gun rants at a
neighborhood cocktail party. The sign wasn't up more than an hour before
he called the police and wanted them to make me take down the sign.
Fortunately, the officer politely informed him that it was not their job
to take such action without a court order and that he had to file a complaint
"downtown" first, which would be reviewed by the city attorney to see if it
violated any city, county, or state ordinances, which if there was a violation a
court order would be sent to the offending party (me) to "remove the sign in
After several weeks he was informed that the sign was legal (by a quarter of an
inch) and there was nothing the city could do, which obviously made him madder.
I tried to smooth things over by inviting him to go shooting with me and my friends
at the hunt club but that seemed to make him even more angry. I then asked him if he
wanted to go to a Tea Party rally but again he declined my outreach efforts to bring
about a better understanding between political and social opponents.
I am at a loss how to reconcile our long relationship (notice I did not say friendship),
any suggestions would be welcome. Anyway, that's life in our neck of the woods,
how's about yours?
You may not like guns. You may choose not to own one. That is your right.
You might not believe in God. That is your choice.
However, if someone breaks into your home at 3AM the first two things you are going to do are:
1) Call someone with a gun.
2)Pray they get there in time." - A wise man
I love it!!!!
Luke 22:36 and if you don't have a sword, sell your cloak and buy one.
Good sign, looks fake.
While people are saying "Peace and safety," destruction will come on them suddenly, ... and they will not escape. 1Th 5:3
That's Great. Lucky for me all my neighbors carry also.
I reject your reality, and insert my own.
It definitely looks fake to me. Still funny.

Good stuff...I had to share this with some "friends"....
Nothing says more about how you feel, than a lead flower.

I won't be wronged. I won't be insulted. I won't be laid a-hand on. I don't do these things to other people, and I require the same from them.
