A community in Pennsylvania is hoping an investment in road signs will pay off by deterring criminal activity.

Conoy Township officials approved signs warning would-be criminals, “This Is Not A Gun Free Zone,” to be placed along roads leading into the community.

The township, with a population of about 3,300 people, appropriated $500 to purchase 16 roadside signs that both welcome visitors and warn crooks they’re entering a pro-gun zone.

The signs reflect the hunting community’s beliefs and faith, says one township official.

“You have to realize that to most people in this township God, guns, family and friends are the four most important things,” says Conoy Township supervisor Stephen Mohr, the man who initially proposed the signage.

Mohr’s hoping the signs will make a positive impact on the township’s crime rate, which has been steadily increasing.

“Over the last six months we’ve seen more and more home invasions and petty crime, so we thought these signs would show people we take pride in what we own,” Mohr, also a lifetime NRA member, said.

But other residents are rejecting the novel crime deterrent, saying it paints the community in a bad light.

“I think it gives the area a feeling that I’m not sure the people want to convey,” one person expressed to Lancaster Online. “Knowing guns are around doesn’t make me feel any safer.”

Others simply think the signs won’t do much good.

“I personally don’t think it will deter someone. People don’t read those signs,” another person interviewed remarked.

Mohr maintains that the signs should only appear threatening to those who wish to cause harm.
