Pro-Gun Road Signs Attract Widespread Support, New Residents

posted on March 2, 2016

Last year, a small Idaho town announced it would erect signs at all five entrances of the town reading, “Welcome to Greenleaf. This is not a gun-free zone.” Though Greenleaf has historically enjoyed a low crime rate, any efforts to deter crime are important, as the town lacks its own police force and is forced to rely on help from police in a nearby town.

So far, the signs seem to be working to repel criminals, and, contrary to the predictions of some anti-gunners, they’re doing nothing to frighten off law-abiding citizens. Residents say that Greenleaf’s pro-gun stance has actually attracted more people to the town, and the vast majority of those who already called Greenleaf home say they support the addition of the signs. “We should have the right to protect ourselves from criminals, and hopefully these kind of signs deter crime in the long run,” longtime resident Kelly McBride told KBOI2 News.
