VIDEO: Unusual 'No Trespassing' Sign Raising Eyebrows in Bellingham Washington

KOMO - BELLINGHAM, Wash. -- A no-trespassing sign posted across the street from a local middle school is raising eyebrows in Bellingham, but police say it is completely legal.

The sign, which was posted on private property across from Fairhaven Middle School, warns "semi-literate thieves" that four different types of guns are on site four days a week.

Some parents and residents in the area say having a sign that hints at gun violence so close to young children sends the wrong message. One resident says she noticed the sign go up the same week as the Sandy Hook school shooting in Connecticut.

"We were already crying because of all of the children that had lost their lives and the teachers," said Pat Briggs-Yazzie, "(and then we) noticed the sign. Just infuriated me that somebody would be threatening to shoot people across from our middle school."

This just demonstrates how the MSM attacks individuals

There is no need to attack that private property owner.

He should have an arsenal if he wants one.

MSM reporters are and will be a primary target if revolution comes to this nation.


What a Non-Issue

Anyone who is alarmed by this is an idiot.

Government school people

are so....what exactly? I will say it this way: their ignorance is just about as deep and wide as the ObamaPhoneLady's. Parents who would place their children under the influence of such feeble-minded ignoramuses have every bit as much of a dearth of wisdom and knowledge as the government school people (which is why the government schools are still in business).

I would have to agree. But I

I would have to agree. But I have to give ObamaPhoneLady a little credit now. She went on an interview with Alex Jones and actually was open-minded and listened to the facts. I have to say she has a little more wherewithal than I thought possible. I've changed my mind some about her. Jones showed her videos of Obama from the past and how he has lied to the people. She wasn't happy about it at all. Hopefully, she'll take that knowledge back to people she knows.

They need to grow up

An "Insured by Smith & Wesson" sign might be better but some of them would still have a meltdown.

A community of morons.

A community of morons. Unusual? Whats usual is that construction sites are routinely robbed by thieves. Are they supposed to give the supplies away for free with a smile on their face? A school employee or parent was probably planning to "borrow" some supplies so they threw a hissy fit and contacted the media.

If there is one thing I hate

If there is one thing I hate is people that get caught up in politically correct garbage. I bet all those kids walk past that sign, go home then slaughter their friends on Call of Duty for the next 3 hours. On a similar note, I gave this sign to my Grandma for Christmas and she loved it lol:


We all share this eternally evolving present moment- The past and future only exist as inconsequential mental fabrications.

The kids weren't bothered at

The kids weren't bothered at all if you watch the video. Theyre not even old enough to read and understand most of the words on the sign.

Controversial school sign

And the children who were old enough to read, say about 7 or 8, were far too smart and self-possessed to fall into a panic over such a silly issue.

Their parents and teachers, I'm afraid, not necessarily so! More's the pity!

I find the "semi-literate"

I find the "semi-literate" snark more offensive than anything else.

I'm Surprised He's Isn't Required

to have a picture for the illiterate criminals..

God Almighty...

...but I am sick of do-gooders, whiners, 'think of the cillins' types, societal-collectivists, hyperbole-purveyors, 'school officials', weaselly pathetic fearful parents and a host of other assholes that would restrict basic fundamental freedoms of others.

Take your civility and your 'feelings' and stick them right up your busy-body ass...sideways.


A place near the school says they have guns there 4 days a week. We can't allow that! He might be able to stop some crazy that is shooting up the school, and we wouldn't want that to happen!

Are the American people really so fed up with their children that they want to put them in a target range? "Go to school Johnny, maybe someone will shoot you today and I won't have to put up with you tomorrow!"???????
Are they really so stupid that they think that any LAW will stop an insane person?
