    sorry Kid, I believe this story has been covered and debunked and filed under internet myth.

    Only thing that spreads faster than measles in a 3rd grade class is urban legends. :p

    I must be Clarevoyant or something. For years my shooting buddies would love giving me a hard time because I would not "stop for a bite" and leave dozens of guns sitting in a restaurant parking lot!

    It may be debunked now, but if some gang banging POS decides that this sounds like a good idea, it will actually happen. :mad:

    Red yellow and white dots or circles are common on tires. It actually tells you where the tire should be in terms on the valve stem on the rim. Sometimes it's a little yellow tag. But when I have guns in my truck and we stop for lunch or breakfast, the truck gets parked where I can see it. Guns never get left in the back of a pickup. Always in the cab.

    Markings on tires are also used by parking authorities to determime how long youve been parked in a specific area

    My dog likes to mark tires while he's out walking, but he don't know how to shoot.

    Our local PD was doing this at a couple of bars. MI does not allow targeted enforcement, i.e. roadblocks, so the creative local PD rationalized that wasn't targeted enforcement. But, funny thing about unintended consequences, they managed to shut down all but one of the city's bars (small town), and those bars generated a fair amount of state shared revenue. PD has taken a huge hit as a result, and there's concern the FD may go away all together.
