....Residents in the Magic Circle neighborhood want everyone to know that the homeowners there may be packing heat.
The signs are hard to miss around 21st and Garnett.The Magic Circle neighborhood association put them up earlier this year in an effort to curb crime.
....But the Tulsa Crime Commission, the non-profit organization that runs Crime Stoppers, does not support the placing of these signs.
Its executive director said the crime commission does not endorse anything that involves guns and potential violence.
She said prevention programs, like neighborhood watches, work much better than letting a criminal know that the homeowners have weapons.
Magic Circle's neighborhood president said it already takes part in the Alert Neighbors campaign and the signs add just another layer of protection.
