At risk of being an Internet cliché, that looks shopped. Also pretty passive-aggressive.
That's the same kind of douchebaggery as if I put up signs saying "My neighbors don't support national healthcare, so I won't call for an ambulance if they're hurt."
...Except for the fact that a sign which displayed the above phrase wouldn't invite attacks on my neighbors.
Photoshopped or not, it's still pretty awesome!!
It looks more to me like they're inviting themselves to be robbed when they're not home.
That sign could also be construed as saying "criminals, you might be able to steal guns from this house when I'm not home," and it makes me wonder if this house is in a jurisdiction which requires firearms to be locked away when stored (No, this isn't me parroting "hippie gun control BS").
Studies show that criminals prefer unarmed victims. I am sure there is some risk to having your weapons stolen - but then again, it's been MY experience that most criminals are generally cowardly, lazy, and opportunistic. And if the house next door has no alarm, no dog, and leave no signs that anyone might be home...it appears to be an easy choice.
BTW I think that is an awesome sign. I have actually used that kind of reasoning with peace loving hippies who shudder at the thought of me carrying a weapon or owning one for that matter. I generally refer them to Lt Col Grossman's article Sheep, Wolves, and Sheepdogs.
Is there some kind of contest going on between the American Right and 4chan right now?
Because this **** is /b/tarded.
Yrkoon9 and WR....you got it, guys. I love that article on the Sheep Dog, BTW. Brings up the all it takes for evil to suceed is for good men to stand idly by (paraphrase).
