10News: Oceanside Sign Flipper, Veteran Upsets Public with Massive Cardboard Rifle

Now even cardboard cutouts of ARs trigger the anti-gunners…

Via 10News:

A gun shop manager’s unusual sign is upsetting passersby in a strip mall and has escalated to the point of police intervention.

“It looks like a machine gun,” said Sistina Taele, who was visiting Oceanside from out of town. “It is pretty aggressive.”

At close range, it’s simply a sign but Von, a veteran, is taking a lot of heat over it.

“A couple people just going by flipping me the bird, either scolding me or yelling some type of obscenity out their window,” Von said.

He started flashing the sign on Black Friday to bring business in to Firearms Unknown. He manages the shop, which sells gun parts.

He says people called the cops reporting a man with a fake rifle.

“It kind of frustrated me that someone would call and make a false statement like that knowing it is a cardboard sign that’s very flimsy,” he said.

He said they asked him to stop or change the sign.

“I respectfully said no,” he said.

Von’s a big believer in his constitutional rights and doesn’t want to be quieted.

“It’s kind of a slap in the face as a veteran,” Von said.

The Marine veteran fought for his rights and lost friends in the fight for that freedom.
