That’s how many travellers see our Burma-Shave style signs every year.
Millions of travellers, many who may not have ever thought, one way or the other, about guns, or what they’re good for.
We’re hoping to start conversations. We succeed, thanks to people like these:
These are some Guns Save Life members, who sacrificed most of a day cutting brush, climbing ladders, and posting new signs. Thanks to the Logue family, Adrienne, Olivia, Hollianne, and Ashlyn, and Bob Woodcock for trekking through the wilderness to service two sets of signs last Friday.
East of Urbana, IL, eastbound on Interstate 74, the new message reads:
I HAVE A GUN
IT’S PRETTY AND PINK
MADE THE BAD GUY
STOP AND THINK
And going westbound, near the Oakwood, IL exit from I 74, is a new message about good guys using guns who are not able to run away:
WHEN THUGS ATTACK
AND YOU CAN’T RUN
YOU CAN DEFEND
WITH A GUN
Thanks also to our landowners, who allow us to put our signs on their private property and allow us access to service them.
If it’s been a few years between slogan changes, the underbrush can get intense:
This picture shows the path we had to cut, through about 50 feet of foliage, just to get to the sign.
But it was worth it. This is what being a member of Guns Save Life is all about
Not just on the keyboard, but out there in the real world.
