Mystery of the Stolen Pro–Second Amendment Yard Signs Solved


Gun owners don’t have it easy in Westchester County, New York. Not only do they have to deal with the state’s outrageously draconian gun restrictions, but they have the Journal News publishing interactive maps showing which homeowners have permits. When a fellow in Somers attempts to use his First Amendment rights to defend his Second Amendment rights, he keeps having his yard signs stolen. You would never guess the culprit:

A man in Somers, N.Y., hatched a plan to catch the individual responsible for allegedly stealing his pro-gun signs repeatedly from his front yard. He bought a trail cam, set it up near the sign – and then waited.

When he learned that his sign had been taken yet again, he was elated because he knew he had finally caught the person responsible on camera.

He just didn’t expect that person to be a uniformed police officer.

Assuming the photos are entirely authentic, a police officer with the Somers Police Department appears to have been caught on camera ripping the sign, which reads: “Protect the Second Amendment,” from the man’s front yard. It wasn’t immediately clear if the police officer had removed the sign previously too or if the action was ordered by Somers PD.

Prior to being kicked down and dragged off by the cops, the signs looked like this one:

The purpose of public officials, including police, is to uphold our constitutional rights. When we find them denying us those rights, we have a problem that will only get worse if it is not rectified.
