NORRIDGEWOCK, ME – Michael Smith, from Maine, works nights. He woke up one morning to the loud sounds of tree trimmers clearing branches from power lines in his yard. So for some reason, on this particular snowy day, wearing only pants, smith goes outside and yells for the workers to “remove themselves” from his property.

That’s when one wood slicer saw a gun in smith’s waistband. It’s a gun tattoo, not a real pistol seen by the branch butcher. Not aware of the ink, police are called. Smith went back to bed only to have his slumber interrupted a second time.

Armed SWAT officers surrounding his home and order the tatted tenant outside. After smith shows his license to carry a concealed tattoo, the police leave without filing charges. Moral to this story folks, if you to get a tattoo of a gun on your gut, put a shirt on it’s cold outside.
