It may well be considered vandalism, however so I do not condone it. It's easily removable if they decide to remove it and it presents a short-term solution until the signs are replaced. That is if they decide not to keep the impromptu sign repairs in place!

Anyone who carries should already know the law about carrying in a public park. As for someone being harassed, maybe one in a million. LEO's do not enforce signs posted in a park, they enforce the laws on the books. With all that said, maybe a LEO might want to make an issue of it but we all know it would not hold water. I would much rather see them not cut funding to a service that people really need just to change some outdated signs.
I agree then need to be changed but lets wait until the economy is better. They have done no harm thus far....
