North Carolina --(Ammoland.com)- Apparently the gun haters have decided that since they can’t convince business owners to post anti-gun signs, maybe they should post the signs themselves.

After Oct 1st I started to look for posted signs at my favorite establishments. I frequently go to a local chicken wing place in Greensboro and last week I noticed a simple sicker that pictured a pistol with red circle and line through it. I took it as no firearms allowed.

I was grabbing a to go order so I had already called it in. I was sad as this was going to be my last order as I wasn’t going to support them anymore. I REALLY like their wings. The manager is the one who brought me my order and gave me the customary “come again soon.” Which I replayed “not likely as long as you have that” pointing at the sicker.

She was shocked and asked the hostess if she knew who put that there. She asked me to wait and went to the back. She came back with the chef who is the owner and he said he had no idea how that got there. He removed it and wished me a good day.

The story has a happy ending, but the follow up is even better.

Yesterday, I went back and the manager said she looked at the surveillance video and said late one night a customer put the sticker there just before closing on their way out. They confronted them as they are also a frequent customer. She stated that she does that all over town where ever she goes. The manger asked them not to come back anymore.

There’s a lesson here. If you see a gun ban sign, make sure to question it. It might be some anti-gun jerk posting the sign.

If you are the victim of some gun hater posting a sign like this, please let me know. I can put you in touch with the Grass Roots North Carolina leadership and we can publicly humiliate the person posting the sign. It might not be worth the effort to sue them for Tortious Interference with Business Relationships

Tortious interference with business relationships occurs where the tortfeasor acts to prevent the plaintiff from successfully establishing or maintaining business relationships. This tort may occur when a first party’s conduct intentionally causes a second party not to enter into a business relationship with a third party that otherwise would probably have occurred. Such conduct is termed tortious interference with prospective business relations, expectations, or advantage or with prospective economic advantage.

But we could get them on the news acting like jerks.

I can see how random people might start posting the “This home is proudly gun free” signs on the lawns of people who do crap like that.

This Home in Gun Free

This Home in Gun Free

UPDATE: Given that lots of people are coming in via Instapundit (Thanks for the link, Glenn!) it’s possible that many of you don’t know North Carolina law. In NC, any No Guns sign has the force of law. There is not standard mandated sign, like Texas’s 30.06 sign. Passing a “No Guns” sign while carrying a gun on a CHP is a Class 1 Misdemeanor.

      With signs like the one posted these home owners are taking the chance that their home will be robbed at gun point…I don’t wish anyone harm but this is a invitation for criminals to commence their dastardly evil deeds…Look what has happened over the years to those places that had Gun Free Zone signs posted…No good came of it…Evil prevailed!

      In most States no firearms signs must be of a certain size with specific lettering. That thing does not look like it would meet those requirements in most States. Just saying.

    4. Anyone posting one of these signs without the property owners/renters per permission can be charged with, vandalism, trespassing, and anti-graffiti laws.

      Please prosecute to the full extent of the law

    5. I haven’t noticed any of the “no guns” stickers or anything like that on businesses in my town yet, but I will certainly be taking a closer look from now on.

      Illegal posting of them should be a felony if there is a chance it could make an innocent gunowner a felon .

      I’m an unarmed Canadian, as a result of living under a police state government, but I do support citizens of every country being permitted to have a gun, especially now our politicians are on a mission to turn our countries into Islamic states, and the possibility of Sharia Law being implemented, such as in Britain and other European countries.
