Experience: that most brutal of teachers. But you learn, my God do you learn. -C. S. Lewis
No, no, no---that sign means "don't put up your hands when a criminal tries to stick you up, reach for your heat"
He is no fool who gives what he cannot keep to gain what he cannot lose. - Jim Elliott
The world is a dangerous place to live; not because of the people who are evil, but because of the people who don't do anything about it.
I think it means: No poking underarms with guns, it tickles.
If I gave a crap about what you think about my guns.....it was early this morning and I already flushed it!
It means no mittens while working the cash register.
"He that hath no sword, let him sell his garment, and buy one." – Luke 22:36
"If a law is unjust, a man is not only right to disobey it, he is obligated to do so." – Thomas Jefferson
While these signs are posted everywhere, the sad commentary is that criminals seldom see them, and are ignored. Only we, the law abiding actually notice the sign and then comment about them.
Signs, laws or stern warnings to would-be criminals has no effect. It usually takes a large caliber hole in them to foster the understanding that robbery will not be tolerated in this establishment.
Actually, posting a sign with a photo of the dead robber filled with bullet holes might get noticed by a potential bad guy. You think?
"A Smith & Wesson always beats 4 aces!"
The Man Prayer. "Im a man, I can change, if I have to.....I guess!" ~ Red Green
I think this will only deter law abiding robbers.
The government is merely a servant -- merely a temporary servant; it cannot be its prerogative to determine what is right and what is wrong, and decide who is a
patriot and who isn't. Its function is to obey orders, not originate them.
It means if you shop here the prices are so high we might as well be robbing you
"Outside of the killings, Washington has one of the lowest crime rates in the country,"
--Mayor Marion Barry, Washington , DC .
I think it means don't even think about robbing this store!!!!
NOT LIVING IN FEAR, JUST READY!!!
I do not love the bright sword for its sharpness,
nor the arrow for its swiftness,
nor the warrior for his glory.
I love only that which they defend.
If only it were as simple as posting a sign...

Gee, criminals must run for the hills the moment they see such a sign!
The purpose of a sign is compliance. Criminals by definition don't comply with requirements we have for behavior. Therefore ... it's just gotta work. Why? Because we want it to. Never mind what criminals will actually do. Having a sign helps make us all feel better. Never mind the sign won't actually achieve any of the goals of such a sign. That it's posted and visible is sufficient. Yeah. That's it.
Whew! I feel sooooooo much better. Time to sleep better at night.
