I am waiting for the door-to-door police visits, and subsequent reactions to the signs.

In an unarmed city, there is nothing one can do to protect their property - Nor themselves or their families. Your comment is totally correct.

I would sneak in a few signs saying, “Gun control zone, no guns here.”

Can looters read? Might be better to have a picture of a glock.

So you can’t tell us what the warning is? You’re going to make us go to a CBS affiliate?

They should just have the Governors of each state announce that they will not prosecute anyone that kills a looter.

Someone had to do the dirty work....

Sadly, even they don't tell what the other warnings are.

Hang a dummy dressed in a hoodie in a tree with a sign saying EX LOOTER!

You'd have more police protection in that area than you knew what to do with.

“...dressed in a hoodie...”

The Sanford FL racists - Martins, BPs, Sharpscum, Jackscum etc - would be all over the place within hours. Just saying.

Good thinking, but it might backfire. The police may come in to protect the looters.

TV cameras would also be there.

Looting would stop.

Cops don’t prevent crime, they mostly investigate crimes and write reports about crime and then cry to politicians to create more laws that they are powerless to enforce. What good are cops when you’re already dead?

You could put up a sign, A psycho lives here - not responsible for what happens.

Sadly, the first looter shooter would be prosecuted by Bloomturd’s AG and the looter’s family would probably get a nice civil suit payout.

“Shoot, shovel and Shut up.”

This should be a viral share.

Speaking from experience, once you get a cop on the scene, all assumptions of your innocence are kaput.

Cops and prosecutors only care about convictions, not justice.

Know the difference and act accordingly.

Now that the criminal fraudster has been re-appointed, the Holder unJustice department doesn’t have to pretend to protect White people, so look for heavy hands of the fed to fall upon anyone who defends their property and life against Holder’s people ‘redistributing’.

Yeah, but that's when the community needs to band together and not talk. Nobody saw or heard anything.

Or they *forgot*.

The corrupt media would probably film the homeowners as violence-crazed right-wingers, and edit out the hoodie-covered looters. They did a lot of audio/video editing with Zimmerman, IIRC. Nothing would change with those MSM crooks.

Good.

Let the left wingers get a dose of their own medicine.

They can make a choice.

Let the looters continue and loose everything they own to the looters, possibly even their lives, or be called racist.

Received in an email: "Due to the increasing costs of ammunition I will no longer be providing a warning shot!"

(Not my plan. Warning shots are for suckers.)

I’m truly hoping those folks are armed, however I’m wondering some of these are bogus signs...bluffing the looters to guess if there are arms present or not.

Dear God help us and our fellow Americans.
