So is today's “No Guns" sign the same as the 1950s "No Blacks" - - - it gives one pause.

People will say it is a matter of choice - - - I do not read in the Constitution that you have a right to be gay. But we do have a second amendment right to bear arms. I would feel we should be every bit as protected as a gay person!
Good analysis. You're uncovering the duplicity of our system of so-called "fairness". It doesn't take much more digging before it become apparent the whole "fairness" meme is just cover for an agenda.

Of course I would.

I haven't had to face that issue yet. However, in Florida, trespassing with a firearm is a felony. My place is fenced and posted; a hunter is not going to accidently stray onto my property. Anyone caught comiting a felony on my property is going to either need an attorney, of if he bows up at me, while holding a firearm, an undertaker.

Posted private property is different than a "public" place, where there is an implied "invitation" to enter. The State recoginzes that difference with different rules. I have a right to defend my home. I don't know if the person trespassing on my property with a firearm is "hunting game" or hunting me or my possesions.

That is where many people keep getting hung up.

Priviate property and Public property are not the same!

I have the following signs at all entrances to my farm,

No Trespassing ( Bright Red letters 6" tall - the rest in 1" letters in black. )
The Sheriff’s dept. and the State Police will patrol and arrest all violators !!!

Any off road vehicles ( ATVs, Go Karts, Mopeds, Dirt Bikes, etc.) will be confiscated and sold with the proceeds going to the Drug Task Force!

Hunting or fishing with express written permission only !

All others will be charged with trespassing. This carries a $1,000.00 bond !!!

That would not be appropriate at the local diner.

My time is valuable.


It helps me weed out the bad places, and gives

me more time to focus on the really great

businesses which are RKBA tolerant...
