Whatever you thought about the concealed carry gun law, it appears to be a dead issue in this State. However, for a while there property owners were forced to put up “bans guns in these premises” signs on their doors and windows. Now that that chapter of Minnesota history is closed, those signs are likely to become nothing more than a memory. I would be interested in preserving this brief but interesting chapter in State history. To that end, I am asking that everyone with a digital camera go out and take pictures of any of those signs you still see around your area. Send me a copy of the picture and I will see about putting them together into some kind of montage or digital scrap book. I’m going to go out this afternoon and cover the area around my apartment. Anyone with submissions or who would be interested in making suggestions for the final product are invited to send them to me here: email@example.com
I know it’s a little late and a lot of these signs have already disappeared, but I bet there are still a few hanging around. Plain pictures of the signs are appreciated, as are more artistic interpretations. I look forward to seeing what we can come up with.
UPDATE: Drat the luck. After a pretty thorough canvasing of the area around my apartment it looks like inspiration may have struck too late on this one. Still, I'll keep my eyes open for remaining signs and I would still invite submissions from anyone who sees one.
