By Danielle Waugh
A large lawn sign that reads "Black Rifles Matter" is offending some tourists in Boothbay Harbor, Maine.
The sign's creator, Linc Sample, said the sign is about gun rights, not race. Sample painted it and placed it on private property after an ad in the local paper supported an assault-style weapons ban.
"That's really a trigger for me â€" the assault weapons ban," said Sample.
He said he used the phrase "Black Rifles Matter," a play on the phrase "Black Lives Matter," to have impact. The BLM movement calls attention to police brutality in the U.S.
