Conoy Township has a message for criminals who might be thinking about preying on its residents: This is not a gun-free zone.
And that’s exactly what visitors will see once all the signs are securely in place along every road leading into the township.
Four of the signs have been posted. Twelve more are scheduled to go up over the next few weeks.
Still, there will be idiots who will ignore the warning, but that is subject for another day.
And you don’t have to imagine the butthurt:
The women, who were dining Thursday afternoon at Little Italy Italian Restaurant in Bainbridge, said the signs are not a good idea.
“I think it gives the area a feeling that I’m not sure the people want to convey,” said Garber of West Donegal Township, who often hikes the Northwest Lancaster County Trail through the township. “Knowing guns are around doesn’t make me feel any safer.”
But if it saves one life, isn’t it worth it? Let’s compromise!
