STAND YOUR GROUND: Town Takes Aim At Gun-Free Zones

In an era of debate over whether "gun-free zones" deter or allow violence, one small town is taking a very firm stance on the issue with their welcome signs.

According to KBOI2, the town of 800 has installed welcome signs at all entrances that read: "Welcome to Greenleaf, Idaho. This is Not a Gun Free Zone."

Resident Kelly McBridge commented, "We are a big family out here in Greenleaf. It's a small town. I think all of us having a gun shows that we are a respectable society. There's a right place for guns. A place that they can be used. We should have the right to protect ourselves from criminals and hopefully these kind of signs deter crime in the long run."

A decade ago, according to NBC News, the Quaker-founded town drew national attention — and ire — when it passed an ordinance recommending that ever household be armed if they did not have an objection to bearing arms.

According to locals, who in large favor the signs, Greenleaf's stance has brought more people to live in the town.
