City Signs Warn Would-Be Criminals, ‘This Is Not a Gun-Free Zone’

Breitbart – by AWR Hawkins

Green and white signs posted at the entrances to Greenleaf, Idaho, warn would-be criminals, “Welcome to GREENLEAF IDAHO: This Is Not A Gun-Free Zone.”

There are a total of five such signs, including two on state highways leading into the community. A Greenleaf city council member said the signs on Highway 19 were approved the Idaho Transportation Department.

Kelly McBride has lived in Greenleaf for a decade and believes the signs send the right message. He said, “It’s a small town. I think all of us having a gun shows that we are a respectable society.”

McBride added, “There’s a right place for guns, a place that they can be used. We should have the right to protect ourselves from criminals and hopefully these kind of signs deter crime in the long run.”

Greenleaf is a small city — “just over 800 residents” — and the city “urges residents to own firearms and get weapons training in their city code.”

KBOI2 reports there has been one complaint about the signs, it came from a Greenleaf resident who did not disagree with the message but thought the signs might be too wordy. Resident Gordon Bates said, “When they first went up, I actually had to read them twice because of the ‘not a gun free zone.’ You kind of have to read that. I wish [it] was a little more clear.”

    The sad truth is… THERE SHOULD BE NO NEED FOR SUCH SIGNS!

    It should go without saying… EVERYWHERE!
