Ya'll come back now, ya hear.



Best billboard they ever bought. Brings out the manners in a lota' folks.
(Could a local there please post a pic.)

What might happen if we saw the same in Washington-DC, Chicago, LA, NewYawkCity, Boston, etc....

"In Florida, avoid disputes. Use special caution in arguing with motorists on Florida roads"
Sounds like good advice to me
In other words..."Quit coming down here, stealing our seashells, and making trouble on our roads"

When Commissar Brady and the apparatniks are upset with you, you know you're living in the right place.

I guess the new law works. Even the Brady’s are being careful about how they treat others.

That's MUCH better than the bumper sticker that says "WELCOME TO FLORIDA! NOW GO THE HELL HOME". I think I would rather pay into State Income Tax than deal with the tour-ons here. What we lose in revenue we may up for in fewer traffic fatalities and beach erosion. Is it possible it wil make the jerks a bit more polite? .........nah!

Where is the sign? We're staying in Ft. Wilderness for Spring Break. I'd love to take a photo of the Billboard for future photoshop work when I get home....

Damn! i like that one. That Gun/State overlay would make a heckuva cool logo or avatar.

ETA - Do you think they realize that by changing the word, "Visitor" to "Criminals" they make our case for us?

Awesome, just awesome.

As ridiculous an illustration of us as this is, if it encourages people to be more considerate I'm all for it.

I just wrote something similar to the "Brady Bunch". Said it was a real shame that people from other states and countries needed fear of being shot to encourage them to be considerate and non-confrontational.....maybe a sign years ago "WELCOME TO FLORIDA, BE NICE OR WE'LL SPIT IN YOUR FOOD" might have been effective.

Perhaps the Brady Campaign will think twice about using such blatant misinformation and "terror tactics" against Florida businesses when they ban together and file a class-action lawsuit against them for illegally attempting to hurt our businesses, especially since they like encouraging firearms related lawsuits!

Jenn,

Where do you typically send correspondence to them at? E-mail address?

Actually, it is a bit more polite than: "Be nice to me or you'll get a size 13 in your crotch."

I went to the "contact us" portion of their website. Just googled it up.
