Steer clear, trespassers

I read the front-page article in The Union about the signs must go. My feeling is this:

The politics surrounding this issue has not been an issue with me until now. However, I take the county’s threats to enter my property and remove my “No on NH 2020” sign and charge me for the removal expense as a direct threat on my property rights and my individual freedom of speech. If the county sends anyone onto my property for any reason without a search warrant and a legitimate reason, I will take it as an invasion against my property and my rights of free speech and a personal attack on my property and family. If this becomes a reality, I would like to suggest that the persons enforcing such rulings and crossing my property line is a further violation of my rights and personal freedoms, and per the Constitution I will take up arms and defend my property and my right to free speech, and I will fight them to the death in defense of my family and my freedom.

By the way I don’t have a sign on my property about anything; this has just given me cause to do so. The sign will read “No trespassing; violators will be shot on sight.”
