trigger warning

Some people appear to be upset by this
(What? No, can’t imagine…)

The sign’s creator, licensed firearms dealer Linc Sample, says his sign is about gun rights not about race. He painted the sign and placed it on private property after an ad appeared in a local paper supporting an “assault” weapon ban. “That’s really a trigger for me — the assault weapons ban,” said Sample.

He chose the phrase as a play on the racial group “Black Lives Matter” to make a point. And Samples says imitation is the sincerest form of flattery. “If anything, they should be flattered I used the phrase,” said Sample.

    If that sign caused “some of these people [to] have cut their vacation short and left early,” then maybe they should have stayed in their safe space to begin with and not left it. It is a dangerous world out there you little, soft people – adapt or die.
