TULSA, Oklahoma -
An east Tulsa neighborhood is sending a message to would-be criminals.
Residents in the Magic Circle neighborhood want everyone to know that the homeowners there may be packing heat.
The signs are hard to miss around 21st and Garnett.The Magic Circle neighborhood association put them up earlier this year in an effort to curb crime.
Jonathan Penick and his wife, Leah, have lived in the Magic Circle neighborhood for four years.
"Neighborhood association does a real good job cleaning up, keeping crime out as much as they can, putting speed bumps in, and just taking care of the whole neighborhood," Jonathan said.
One deterrent comes in the form of a sign that reads: "Concealed Carry Neighborhood."
But the Tulsa Crime Commission, the non-profit organization that runs Crime Stoppers, does not support the placing of these signs.
Its executive director said the crime commission does not endorse anything that involves guns and potential violence.

Does Tulsa need a new Crime Commission executive director?

My favorite neighborhood sign is “We don’t call 911”.

Maybe a whole new Commission. What a sanctimonious, short-sighted public position to take!

They have no say in the matter. Seems to me if the Commission was doing its job and having any impact at all, the signs wouldn't be necessary.

We have a Sheriff who parks his County car on our Cul-d-sac, which is a nice deterrent.

(Freedom is NOT a loophole!)
This gets the point across, I think. One of my neighbors has a sign at the end of his driveway that states, "You are now in range"
