I like a town with spunk:
A rural township in south-central Pennsylvania is warning motorists that its residents pack heat in an effort to deter crime.
A dozen signs that declare âTHIS IS NOT A GUN FREE ZONEâ have been erected on just about every major road leading into Conoy Township, population 3,067. Three more signs are slated to go up soon, Fox News reported.
âI think even those who have bad intentions can read,â Stephen Mohr, one of the township supervisors, told Fox News. He said the townâs five supervisors unanimously decided to put up the signs.
âThe first word on there is âWelcomeâ âŚ we have a lot here that we take pride in. What weâre telling people is that when they do come here, they should feel safer knowing that everyone in the township is watching out for them,â Mr. Mohr said. âAnd the criminal â he should realize that going into this township, he could have a bad day.â
Alas, Mohr might be presuming too much in assuming that the bad guys can read.
