Anti-Gun Neighbour

Is your home not armed?

Some Texas neighbours have no control



“My neighbour is a “lefty” of sorts (Obama bumper stickers, gung-ho socialized
medicine, “guns should be banned”). So this past spring I put this sign up in my
yard after one of his anti-gun rants at a neighbourhood cocktail party.

Anti-Gun Neighbour in Texas

The sign wasn’t up more than an hour before he called the police and wanted
them to make me take down the sign. Fortunately, the officer politely informed
him that it was not their job to take such action without a court order and that
he had to file a complaint “downtown” first, which would be reviewed by the
city attorney to see if it violated any city, county, or state ordinances,
which if there was a violation a court order would be sent to the
offending party (me) to “remove the sign in seven days.”

After several weeks he was informed that the sign was legal (by a
quarter of an inch) and there was nothing the city could do, which
obviously made him madder. I tried to smooth things over by inviting him
to go shooting with me and my friends at the hunting club, but that
seemed to make him even more angry.

I am at a loss how to reconcile our long relationship (notice I did not say
friendship). Any suggestions would be welcome...”
