[aprssig] New APRS Baby-on-board symbol ?

Keep in mind that here in Utah there is no stipulation on the number of 
firearms that one may conceal.  I have started classes by asking how many 
people think I'm carrying.  The most I've ever done was 2 in a fanny pack, 
two inside vest pockets, two in shoulder rigs, one in an ankle holster, and 
one FBI mode.  I could have added a couple more, but it was only for 
illustration.

But, given that this is the case, for APRS - which one would one select if 
one was to select one?

I'm done now.
