A "Welcome to North Carolina" sign includes a warning about concealed weapons by its citizens. Is this sign real?
Much like a recent “Welcome to Wisconsin” sign we discussed recently, it’s unclear if this was created as a joke or if it was meant to be passed off as real, but a cursory examination of the graphic yields obvious clues that the text below the sign was not part of the original photograph. The sign in the graphic reads:
Welcome to North Carolina
Nation’s Most Military Friendly State
Our citizens have concealed weapons
If you kill someone, we will kill you back!
We have “0” jails, and 513 cemeteries
Enjoy your stay!
It should be noted that the bottom of this graphic appears to have been lifted and added to a “Welcome to West Virginia” sign, as seen below:

The “Welcome to North Carolina” concealed weapons sign is not real. It isn’t clear, however, if it was intended as a joke or to be passed off as real.
