Man's Controversial Sign Receives Backlash From Black Lives Matter Protestors

One man in the town of Boothbay Harbor, Maine, apparently doesn't fool around when it comes to second amendment rights. A recent display he put up has created a bit of an uproar, and even worries some of the locals.

The sign in question says, "Black Rifles Matter: Yes, we have 'em. No, you can't take 'em."

The sign also features an image of a black firearm.

Linc Sample is the man who put up the sign, and he says it has nothing to do with race. Black rifles, or black guns, are just a term used for semi-automatic weapons. The sign is meant to support second amendment rights.

“There have been some people that have asked me to take the sign down and I don't respond to that very well. It's my property, it's my sign. There's been some talk that I have hurt tourism. I don't believe that for a minute,” Sample said.

Reports say some local business people have complained, but so far no one has made any formal attempts to remove the sign.
