    Well, yes and no. In Texas a purple strip painted on fence posts, trees, etc and of a certain length and width, is recognized as a no tresspassing sign, just as if the sign were there.
    However, brandishing a gun, even on your own property, can be result in many charges such as terrorist threat, endangerment, and so on.
    Bottom line - gun is deadly force, and the laws are specific as has been recorded in this thread.

    I agree with you.Thats what I was thinking also! Why advertise you have weapons! They can case your home. Learn who lives there,watch & see what your habits are! Break in while they believe no ones home!
    While I liked all the signs, I wouldn't want one put on my house or properity! Niether would I want one of thoses signs on my car! What if by some chance I have to lock my weapon in my car! I will seldom go in a place where I can't carry but,,Drs Office,Hospitals Post Offices are afew! I chance for some one to try for it then,,
    But thats just my way of looking at it,,,

    Every generation has said the same thing. Even the elders of the GI's that fought WWII, and they were as tough as it gets. The kids we have no are not short on brains or guts. Have met a young Marine lately?

    Milkwood's comments echo the reasons I'd never post anything like these messages in front of my house.

    Don't retreat. Just reload.

    I too cannot agree more. We do not divulge our home security or alarms systems either. Too easy to cut your Telephone line in advance.

    100% true !!!

  9. I've always been amused by the "my neighbor doesn't like guns so I won't use mine to help him" signs.

    I can't help wondering whether, if something really bad happened to the neighbor, there might be some way he could sue the sign owner for "encouraging" the crime. Anything is possible in the Liberal City.

    Seriously speaking, though I chuckle at the "found here at night will be found here in the morning" type of sign, I would not put up anything that even remotely suggests I might want to shoot someone.

    The only sign on my door is the Second Amendment Foundation sticker that says the "owner is armed and willing to protect life & property. Nothing in here is worth your life."

    We live in a litigious society. We can all sit around and BS about what we might do if there are no witnesses, but any serious legal advisor would tell us to go easy on the inflammatory signs.


    I have a buddy who cultivates and values his reputation as an irrascible old redneck. Everyone knows he carries (a SIG P220), and tends to greet "oh dark thirty" visitors to his out of the way place with a riot gun. I've tried to talk him into using a backhoe to dig a few graves, then put up a sign, "all thieves will end up here." Let word get around the rumor mill for a couple of months, then fill in one grave and don't say a thing...

    +1, milkmood. IMO, the element of surprise is a supreme advantage.
