    No, no, no---that sign means "don't put up your hands when a criminal tries to stick you up, reach for your heat"

    Obviously, you don't speak the language.

    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.

    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?

    I think this will only deter law abiding robbers.
    Mark Twain:
    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.

    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.
