Regarding The 'No Guns' Sign

An open letter to whoever is responsible for the 'No Guns' sign on this building.

1) Do you honestly think that someone law-abiding enough to obey your sign is likely to start shooting up the place?

2) Do you honestly think that someone who is going to start shooting is likely to obey your sign?

Question 2 shows why the sign is stupid. Question 1 shows why it's insulting.

These signs are actually worse than useless since there are criminals who look for the assurance of easy victims they provide.

I urge you to reconsider the decision to post this sign.
