Gun Mailbox is Making Neighbors Very Mad in New York State
As you can imagine, this is an extremely controversial mailbox.
There is a mailbox in New York State that is causing quite a stir. This man has a massive 'gun' mailbox in front of his home. Don't be confused--it is not FOR guns, it literally is for the mail. The gun mailbox is literally a mailbox in the shape of a .40. You put the mail in the muzzle of the 'gun'.
The man with the gun mailbox said that it was meant to try and stop junk mail from coming and unwanted visitors. I am not sure how that will stop the junk mail companies from giving him mail. In fact, that might even bring more mail in the form of hate mail. But, as long as the mailbox is not breaking any town laws or ordinances, you should be able to do whatever you want, if it is on your property.
The neighbors were mad and tried to go to the town and have it taken down.
This is not the first time that someone has made a controversial mailbox.
Back in 2013, there was another man in New Jersey who made a similar mailbox. Though, he said that he did not make the gun mailbox for any political statement and he is just a big fan of his gun.
