This is an interesting story that seems to involve the first and second amendments, local codes about property use, and a possible misuse of police powers.
Some guy put a pro gun sign in his yard, which annoyed his neighbor and may have violated a local code. The sign went missing, so he put up another — along with a trail cam to catch the culprit, who turned out to be a cop.
So, do the police have the right to come on your property and remove a sign that is allegedly in violation of a local ordinance? That doesn’t sound right to me.
