Small Town's Message To Visitors Causes Controversy (Photo)

Conoy Township, Pennsylvania, has a population of 3,000 people and sits on the edge of the Susquehanna River.

Still, the seemingly innocuous town wants passersby to know that they’re packing heat.

New signs that read, “Welcome to Conoy Twp. This is not a gun free zone” are being placed along every every major road into the rural township.

The town’s five supervisors unanimously agreed to put the up, Supervisor Stephen Mohr told Fox. “I think even those who have bad intentions can read,” he said.

“The first word on there is ‘Welcome’… we have a lot here that we take pride in. What we’re telling people is that when they do come here, they should feel safer knowing that everyone in the township is watching out for them,” Mohr said. “And the criminal - he should realize that going into this township he could have a bad day.”

Jonathan Hutson, a spokesman for the Brady Campaign to Prevent Gun Violence, said the signs were unnecessary. “These signs are silly, because the Second Amendment guarantees the right of law-abiding, responsible citizens anywhere to own guns in their homes,” he said. "As a matter of fact, no jurisdiction in America completely prohibits the carrying of guns in public.”

Mohr, a member of the National Rifle Association, said the signs welcome gun owners and reaffirms the belief that carrying firearms promotes safety - in addition to supporting the Second Amendment.
