Libel or free speech? Woman posts sign 'outing' neighbor for owning a gun


Just ask Matthew Halleck.

Halleck, of Olmsted County, Minn., takes his two daughters to and from Harriet Bishop Elementary in Rochester every day, reported ABC News 6. Their safety, he says, is his No 1 concern.

As part of keeping them safe, Halleck carries a concealed firearm with a legal permit.

"I'm going to protect my children any way I can," Halleck told News 6. This quote doesn't make much sense by itself. I know what he means, or think I know what he means, but it's not crystal clear. It doesn't have to be there.

Unfortunately for Halleck, one nosy neighbor, Kimberly Edson, decided it was her duty to un-conceal the weapon by placing a sign with Matthew's picture on it across the street from the school. It reads: "This man carries a loaded gun around your children every day."

You'd think he would simply post a "Gun Free House" sign next to her yard.
