    Clink the link... Welcome to Florida
    Perhaps we can get one for entering Georgia, too.

    Epic! :righton:

    Where is that? I haven't seen it coming home to FL on I-75.

    Shows how out of touch the Brady Campaign is, thinking that deadly force a bad thing... Besides, most of the people *driving* into florida will be coming from GA, SC, TN, AL, and other gun-friendly states (NJ and NY are a ways away...). 90% of the people reading that sign probably say "damn straight!" when they see it.

    Who exactly is the target audience of that sign?

    The fact that the BC made that is so full of win. I agree. I want one too! :)

    I think it's a valuable service the Brady Campaign is providing. All the southern states need such a billboard to warn residents of disarmed socialist states and big-city cesspools of crime to mind their behavior when dealing with locals, who may be armed.

    What the Brady campaign refuses to accept: There's not a state in the union that doesn't allow deadly force to be used to protect one's life or the life of someone else.

    We should copy it exactly, but replace the BC logo with GCO :)

    i have trouble understanding the intended message of this sign. im sure they probably didnt intend for it to be interpreted the way we are interpreting it.

    :rotfl2: Did they actually mean that to be a negative sign? Because the way I read it, it sounds like a great thing!

    Brady idiots...

    That sign is awesome, I hope we can get one!

    There used to be a huge billboard that was at I-20 and Highway 1 in South Carolina that had a similar message from their gun rights group.

    I was impressed. I looked last time, I didn't see it. :(

    I bet the couple killed at the rest stop wished some armed citizens would have been around the night they died. After their death the rest stops became patrolled at night. I've seen off duty leos sleeping on the job while "protecting" us. I cc'd into the toilet and left before he awakened. I felt safe.

    WARNING: New Jersey residents can NOT use deadly force.

    Where would you rather be?

    Well, yeah, you can. Maybe. In your own home, you have some latitude, although you better be able to justify it. You have to have a reasonable belief you were in danger of death or serious injury.

    Outside the home, forget it. If you have a way of retreat, you have an affirmative duty to take it.

    A lwayer adds....

    Want to have all that running through your mind when faced with a thug wanting to take your stuff?

    I do not get this tactic at all. Are they implying that there are states where one is not allowed to defend themselves with deadly force? Even in NYC if someone invades your home and attacks you and you pick up a knife and kill them I would think they allow some sort of self defense argument.

    I would think the vast majority of those reading that sign as they sped by it would think it was a warning to BGs rather the family tourist.

    Are there really people against self defense? I know plenty of moms who are not comfortable with firearms but would pull your head off if you tried to harm their kids.

    Does the General populous understand what is refereed to by TBC as "deadly force"?
