Now that Wisconsin allows people to carry concealed guns, here's one thing you might want to know: That includes your home. That means that everyone from the Mary Kay lady to the plumber can come into your home packing heat, unless you tell them they can't, or unless you post a sign.
The law, which allows people to apply for licenses to carry concealed guns, knives, Tasers and billy clubs, went into effect on Nov. 1.
People who oppose the law -- according to some polls they make up the majority of the state -- might be put off at having to stick a sign on their door to keep guns out of the home. But I think it beats having to tell everyone who comes to the door that they need to put their gun in the car.
So I'm going to buy a sign, which are being sold at the Madison City Clerk's office in Room 103 of the City-County Building at 210 Martin Luther King Blvd., from 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. The sign, a 5-inch-by-7-inch vinyl sticker, costs $5.

Yeah, YOU do that and keep the criminals out of your home! ROTF!
What a maroon!
The “No guns” sign will have the opposite effect, as it will let the criminals know which houses have no guns.
So instead of guns coming into your home without your knowledge, you’ll have home intruders and thieves...
Hoplophobes certainly give proof to the saying that “the difference between ignorance and stupidity is that ignorance is finite.”

Sounds more like a “come and rob me” sign.
Disarm the law abiding, and you will have lawlessness.
Guess we all had the same thought!
“The law, which allows people to apply for licenses to carry concealed guns, knives, Tasers and billy clubs, went into effect on Nov. 1.”
ARGH, they can carry knives, clubs, and tasers too? I am jealouse, Michigan is gun only and it drives me nuts. We might get tasers very soon but I still wouldn’t mind carrying a decent sized pocket knife or a baton.
Yes, I see my first reaction has been anticipated by everyone. I suspect that even an idiot lib will think twice before actually posting these public invitations to home invaders.
Liberals; working hard to prove the law of unintended consequences!
How about posting NO GUNS IN THIS HOUSE? Then YOU can be the one who gets burglarized.
Get a "Gun-Free Zone" sign.
Hang it on the outside of the door,
only on those boring, slow news days,
when you can sit comfortably inside
locked and loaded.
There is so much stupid in this concept, I thought it was satire.
Why not just put up a “Burglars Welcome” sign instead. It will cave the same effect.
Yeah, this would only work if they have 'castle doctrine', and really, it wouldn't be sporting....
...too much like shooting over bait. (8^D)
