It doesn’t mean what I thought

It is disheartening that here in this region of Texas- and to a lesser extend, this part of New Mexico, too- you can’t go anywhere without running into unwelcoming signs. They are beside almost every door of every business you might want to enter.

With all the real concerns out there, why the focus on guns? Mere tools. The focus is never on acts. You never see a sign prohibiting robbery, murder or rape- only pictures of guns. How idiotic and cowardly.

But, I guess I should be comforted that those idiotic, cowardly signs apparently don’t mean what I had thought they meant.

I thought they meant “no guns”. Well, it’s good to know that ridiculous symbol only means “guns must be handled appropriately“. Whew! Good to know!

    I just don't get it. If I don't trust you with a gun, I don't trust you without one and don't want you on my property regardless. That's just common sense and … normal. If I invite you onto my property (which is what it means to open a business) then I accept you as you are- exercising ALL your human rights fully. Anything less is uncivilized.

    the mindset is that they are “superiors” who demand control of “lesser” beings; telling those they consider their “slaves”, what they may or may not do.

    in invisible ink, it says “psychopaths run this business. if you have a brain, then shop elsewhere.”
