Law Shield wants to alert our Multi-State members to a security problem they may have to face in the future — nosy neighbors.

According to ABC affiliate KAAL-TV, Kimberly Edson of Savage, Minn., used a yard sign to tell her neighbors that Matthew Halleck, a former Parent Teacher Student Association president and father of two, drops his children off at school while lawfully carrying a concealed firearm.

Edson initially called the police to report that Halleck was carrying a firearm near the school, but was enlightened by law enforcement officials that Halleck was well within his rights. Edson then took a photo of Halleck walking with his child, made it into a yard sign, and displayed in her front lawn. The photo is accompanied by a caption that states: “This man carries a loaded gun around your children every day.”

When interviewed by KAAL, Edson justified her actions by stating, “Since we don’t have a way to stop him, we felt it was important to notify the neighborhood and the parents that there is an armed man in their presence.”
