Welcome to Conoy Township (Pennsylvania): THIS IS NOT A GUN-FREE ZONE

Just like the posted signs say: http://images.search.yahoo.com/images/view;_ylt=AwrTcXIVhdxUB8QA7tCJzbkF;_ylu=X3oDMTIyb3Zia3ZkBHNlYwNzcgRzbGsDaW1nBG9pZAM0Y2VhZjUyZmQ3OGZkMWQ3ZmViM2EyNjA0YmYzNDQ2NQRncG9zAzEEaXQDYmluZw--?.origin=&back=http%3A%2F%2Fimages.search.yahoo.com%2Fsearch%2Fimages%3Fp%3DTHIS%2BIS%2BNOT%2BA%2BGUN-FREE%2BZONE%26n%3D60%26ei%3DUTF-8%26fr%3Dipad%26fr2%3Dsb-top-images.search.yahoo.com%26tab%3Dorganic%26ri%3D1&w=450&h=676&imgurl=moonbattery.com%2Fgraphics%2Fconoy-township-not-gun-free-zone.jpg&rurl=http%3A%2F%2Fschnizzle.biz%2F264552%2Froadside-america%2F&size=87.1KB&name=conoy-township-<b>not<%2Fb>-<b>gun-free<%2Fb>-<b>zone<%2Fb>&p=THIS+IS+NOT+A+GUN-FREE+ZONE&oid=4ceaf52fd78fd1d7feb3a2604bf34465&fr2=sb-top-images.search.yahoo.com&fr=ipad&tt=conoy-township-<b>not<%2Fb>-<b>gun-free<%2Fb>-<b>zone<%2Fb>&b=0&ni=132&no=1&ts=&tab=organic&sigr=11d6lrsup&sigb=14kbgmnij&sigi=11tsf0cit&sigt=11lv3igrm&sign=11lv3igrm&.crumb=OCSVKTVmE2q&fr=ipad&fr2=sb-top-images.search.yahoo.com

News from the Quaker State (Yahoo! news link): http://news.yahoo.com/town-best-most-welcoming-gun-free-zone-signs-153403342.html#cover-50a0510e1f785e95b150b7c75d53c6f6

I’m thinking the signs won’t last long. Gun nuts will probably take them in the middle of the night and keep them as trophies.

Huh. No bullet holes?

So 80% of households contain firearms,and they have a major problem with home invasions.
I guess a lot of criminals are well armed now.

I would like to see some stats on home invasions in Conoy Township for the last couple of years; I don’t believe the quote in the linked article is based on reality.

So much for the theory that people need to have guns to prevent home invasions…

Living rather near it, I can tell you that Conoy Township is also not a redneck-free zone.

Neither do I. I don’t live in that area, but am a little familiar with it. Very safe, with little crime. According to the websites I can find, the crime rate in Conoy Township is 71 percent lower than the national average. All categories of crime are below the national average, with violent crime at 4 (with 100 representing the national average), robbery at 27, and theft at 22. Burglary is relatively high compared to other crimes at 68, but still well below the national average.

Frankly, I find the signs kind of amusing, and understand how they are meant to ridicule people who think posting “gun free zone” actually improve anything. Looks like an inside joke to me.
