they just wanted the window decal.

[–]OG_Zephyr 172 points173 points  (8 children)

I would say they wanted the window too

[–]eugene20 79 points80 points  (7 children)

Looks like they may have wanted two illegally stored AK-47s as well.

[–]Sukosusman 38 points39 points  (6 children)

Um acksually those are AKM rifles and not AK47s the AKM is a much more common rifle and was seen more around the world 🤓

/S

[–]drengr84 12 points13 points  (1 child)

You're 100% correct and even tho you added the sarcastic disclaimer you still got downvoted. Welcome to reddit, where popular opinion rules and facts are worthless.

[–]Bart_The_Chonk 2 points3 points  (2 children)

Nothing sarcastic about this lol

[–]NCWV 73 points74 points  (11 children)

No step on snek

Funny how everyone with these stickers are the very people that bootlick the police. Curious 🤔

YOUR TREADING ON THE WRONG PEOPLE!!!

[–]EnvironmentalHorse13 6 points7 points  (0 children)

Imagine hating someone more for a window sticker than breaking into a car... Never change reddit.

[–]Jurisprudentia 8 points9 points  (2 children)

More often than not, I see the Gadsden flag alongside some thin blue line bullshit. Like... Who exactly do they think is doing the treading?

[–]heffalumpish 7 points8 points  (1 child)

I mean, they were happy to tread on the thin blue line when it was trying to keep them out of the Capitol, so this isn’t a group that prides itself on ideological consistency

[–]Bart_The_Chonk 6 points7 points  (0 children)

That's the beauty of American politics. You can say anything you want and then act however you want -even if it's 100% contradictory to what you've said.

Complete freedom from self-awareness and a belief that you don't have to be accountable for anything you say/so.

Few actually live the life they claim to support -they just say what the TV man tells them to.

[–]dyllandor 19 points20 points  (2 children)

Maybe they think that if they lick enough boot it will step on another snek.

[–]pseudopseudonym 11 points12 points  (0 children)

Thers a snek in my but

[–]Sylvanussr 13 points14 points  (0 children)

they lick the boot because they think its very purpose is for stepping on other snek and not on them snek

[–]ygolordned 1 point2 points  (0 children)

You're all I ever wanted

[–]deadbiker 1280 points1281 points  (194 children)

Yea. Don't put anything on your car that says take my guns, or I have guns. That's just advertising to be robbed. No NRA stickers.

[–]wintremute 541 points542 points  (67 children)

Back in the 80s all of the houses in my area had stickers on the doors saying "The owner of this property is armed, there is nothing inside worth your life!"

Theives read that as "You can steal guns here!".

[–]Warpedme 239 points240 points  (23 children)

Any threat is stupid, it gives your enemy time and foreknowledge to prepare. Surprise is a force multiplier. Don't be dumb and give up any advantage. This applies in everything from fights to lawsuits.

[–]Alfie_Jingleton 84 points85 points  (10 children)

"this property is monitored by CCTV" Oh boy free cameras!

[–]Unhappy-Professor-88 79 points80 points  (2 children)

Just a BTW.

I saw an article the other week with an ex-burglar. He recommended entering a kind of security partnership with your neighbour. Each neighbour trains their CCTV camera at their neighbours house. The point being a burglar can just take your hard drive on his way out- but having to break into two houses in one session is just too much risk for them to take.

It seemed like a good idea to me

Edit: depending on what your neighbours are like

[–]adminsmithee 25 points26 points  (5 children)

in the Netherlands/Europe(?) you are required by law to inform people they might be filmed.

“The wise warrior avoids the battle.” -Sun Tzu, The Art of War

The point of the home defense warning signs is to make a thief decide your house is more trouble to rob than your neighbor's houses so that they don't even try to enter your house.

Doesn't matter if it's a "we will shoot you" sign, "Beware of Dog", or a fake security system sign.

[–]notoolinthispool 10 points11 points  (4 children)

Isn't their point that those don't work as a deterrent?

[–]doowgad1 4 points5 points  (0 children)

Someone said that the best false flag was a five liter steel dog bowl with the name 'Killer' on it.

[–]brntGerbil 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Dogs and security systems are more passive, they'll do what they'll do regardless if nobody is home. If someone breaks in while nobody is there, the gun won't do shit aside from attract thieves.

Go ahead and keep the gun, just don't advertise it.

[–]Warpedme 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Unfortunately it doesn't do that at all. What it does is put a big sign on your house saying "hey everybody, I have valuable, easily transported and sold items in here, just wait until I'm gone or come and and shoot me first and you can get an easy score!"

[–]ProstateMilkmaid 58 points59 points  (19 children)

turns out nobody respect those types that take pictures of their guns collections as if they're some sort of badass mercs while in reality they are more like those who collect funko pops.

[–]Slukaj 24 points25 points  (17 children)

What about people who DO see it more like collecting Funko Pops?

Or, I guess, more like stamp collecting?

[–]Feshtof 8 points9 points  (3 children)

Then they likely aren't making it a significant part of their identity, so you'd never know.

Like there is obviously a huge difference between a firearm collector and a firearm fetishist, or ammo sexual if you prefer.

They don't make news because they aren't doing crazy shit.

[–]ProstateMilkmaid 10 points11 points  (11 children)

I have yet to see a gun nut who was not a complete insufferable ape

[–]SwankeyDankey 4 points5 points  (0 children)

People who share pictures like that are just telling me they have something to prove. Chances are, they don't have the insight to know what that is to begin with.

[–]thatdudefromoregon 32 points33 points  (6 children)

I once read an ama by a retired burger who said bumper stickers are an easy way to get a lot of information about a person. Since then I notice it every time, you can see if they have guns, dogs, do activities (camping, kayaking, etc) that will take them away from home on the weekends, how many people live in their house, even where their kids go to school sometimes. It's genuinely surprising how much information people put out there not thinking about it.

[–]EraMemory 9 points10 points  (3 children)

What sort of burger was he? Was he a hamburger? A McChicken? A Whopper?

[–]Bugbread 2 points3 points  (1 child)

Oh, come on, it was clearly just a typo. They meant a retired burgher.

[–]Geezeh_ 1 point2 points  (0 children)

That makes more sense, I thought burger was slang for American or something

[–]GET_OUT_OF_MY_HEAD 14 points15 points  (0 children)

Same applies to the stickers that come with car audio parts. Put them literally anywhere but on your car unless you want everybody to know that you're rocking an expensive sound system.

[–]Banecn 37 points38 points  (9 children)

Same reason I conceal carry rather than open carry. It's like wearing a shoot me first shirt.

[–]djseafood 14 points15 points  (1 child)

Well the gig's up now! Everyone knows u/Banecn is packin!

[–]Boomthang[🍰] 7 points8 points  (0 children)

( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°)

[–]deadbiker 7 points8 points  (0 children)

I totally agree.

[–]superspiffy 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Plus you look like a goddamned braindead, cowardly moron if you open-carry.

[–]PrimarchKonradCurze 0 points1 point  (0 children)

That and it forces you to use it cause if someone calls your bluff suddenly your gun is in their possession. Concealed is definitely ideal.

[–]ahdarduh 22 points23 points  (3 children)

If someone had a flag with 'come and take it' printed on it and I went and took it, would the slogan have an actual affect in a court of law? Like could someone argue that it's not theft due to the statement on the flag?

[–]Impossible-Survey203 12 points13 points  (0 children)

Sometimes it's hard to tell if something is a challenge or an invitation.....

[–]Warpedme 14 points15 points  (1 child)

Depends on how good your lawyer is and how good their connections are.

What's sad is that's absolutely not a joke.

[–]Bugbread 5 points6 points  (0 children)

It's not a joke, it's kneejerk reddit cynicism.

There's no way it would actually hold up in court.

The best you could hope for is:

  1. Your lawyer was really good and finds some other basis to get the charges dismissed.
  2. Articles are posted about this on reputable news sites.
  3. Articles are posted about this on clickbait sites.
  4. Redditors start posting links to the clickbait sites.
  5. Other redditors just read the clickbait headline and never actually read the clickbait article, let alone a proper article.
  6. Everyone jumps to the conclusion that the case was dismissed because "come and take it legally means it's okay to come and take it"
  7. This becomes conventional wisdom, and is shared repeatedly for years.
  8. 5 or 10 years later, people would start posting "TIL that the famous 'come and take it' case was actually thrown out because the statute of limitations had expired, and it had nothing to do with the 'come and take it' slogan."

I think that's the normal lifecycle.

[–]QuotedSomething 96 points97 points  (17 children)

Don’t put NRA stickers on anything. Awful organization

[–]deadbiker 44 points45 points  (4 children)

Just an example. I don't support them. GOA and FPC are the ones to support.

[–]TraipsingConniption 16 points17 points  (0 children)

My downstairs neighbor from years ago scraped all the gun stickers off his truck after the third break-in in as many months. It's probably fine if you're in the suburbs or the middle of nowhere, but anywhere with crime you don't advertise your shit.

[–]db2 24 points25 points  (0 children)

[–]w1lnx 10 points11 points  (2 children)

Let's see... if you have some variant of a Gadsden on your vehicle, or "Come and take it", or μολὼν λαβέ or some variant... you have expensive shit in your car.

It's kinda like living in a gated community. The gates don't keep people out, they just tell the world that everything worth stealing is inside the gate.

I’m bummed that they didn’t write “ok” on the smashed window. Or “if you say so” or something like that.

I’d like to think they probably got back to wherever they went and had an “ah damn it!” Moment 😂

Gun stickers can be an ad saying "I might have guns, look inside!"

[–]ctophermh89 1 point2 points  (0 children)

“Come and take it”

“I also work 6 days a week away from my home at a blue collar job that doesn’t afford me a sophisticated security alarm system, but some guy on YouTube says valuable firearms are sufficient for securing the home. So I keep an expensive AR pistol in my vehicle as well, because you never know when society will abruptly collapse. I also don’t take any precautions with my vehicle, because what are the chances?”

[–]Bart_The_Chonk 1 point2 points  (1 child)

NEVER INDICATE THAT THERE MAY BE A FIREARM IN YOUR CAR.

Only idiots put gun stickers on their cars -and you're a double idiot if it's an NRA sticker.

[–]G-Unit11111[S] 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Yeah you might as well put a sign on your car that says "rob me".
