Update: Read TheBlaze’s interview with the maker of these signs here.
You might have seen signs at certain establishments letting customers know they welcome things like pets or strollers. But there’s a new sort of welcome sign that has begun to go viral on the Internet recently: a welcome sign for guns.
The sign says “Guns Are Welcome.” But there are stipulations to that statement. Although allowed on the premise of whatever establishment this sign precedes, it goes on to ask that the weapons remain holstered “unless the need arises.”
Even in the case of a need, the sign reads “judicious marksmanship appreciated.”
This is a video showing the sign and even has the maker giving more information about it:
At the time of this posting, it as been retweeted more than 570 times. Here’s a glimpse at a few of those supportive tweets:
Stull, who has posted other pro-gun ownership phrases and pictures, is professionally a National Hot Rod Association Super Comp Dragster driver. According to her website, this is something she took up after being diagnosed with terminal cancer and given only three years to live. This was in 2002 and clearly she has beaten the odds. Stull is also active on Twitter posting her support for the military and their families, as she is involved in military-focused ministries.
“I really appreciate the Soldiers who serve, because the job they do allows me to do what I do,” she said on her website. “My getting to drive race cars is entertainment. People in the military are changing history. It’s important that when they go out to do their job, they know they are fully supported here at home.“
This story has also been updated to reflect that although the Twitter picture references Texas, the maker of the sign is based in Roanoke Rapids, N.C.
