I take absolutely no credit for this story as it was taken from WRAL.com. However, I do take credit for bringing it to you! It is absolutely brilliant and I can not believe the exposure the residents have received! I have got to go find their Facebook Page and become a fan!
Durham, N.C. – A group of Durham residents taking aim at speeders with the threat of a paintball gun said Tuesday that they are “amazed and gratified at the reaction.”
The group, Angry Neighbors With Paintball Guns, posted signs at strategic locations throughout the city, warning motorists to slow down or risk being shot at with a paintball gun.
The group does not say if the signs are meant to serve only as an attention-grabber or if it plans to shoot paintballs at vehicles.
“We received top story coverage on local television news, more than half a dozen requests for interviews from local media outlets, and generated hundreds of comments on blogs, media websites, and Facebook,” according to an e-mail from a group member, who declined to release his or her name. “We received numerous requests from individuals who wish to receive their own copies of our sign. We inspired the creation of a Facebook group. We clearly touched a nerve in the city of Durham.”
