Polk County’s sheriff is sending out a call to arms. He says people should be armed and prepared just in case they are faced with an active shooter.
“The armed assailant doesn’t plan on you fighting back,” said Sheriff Grady Judd. “He plans on having a gun, doing all the shooting, and you’re just a sitting duck. Well, the ducks need to shoot back.”
Judd says citizens should have a concealed weapons permit and carry their gun with them whenever they can. He also says gun owners should keep their skills sharp.
And if a gun is not your thing, he says, you might consider another kind of weapon, like pepper spray or a Taser.
“If you’re not afraid of a gun, get one,” said the sheriff. “And if you need to shoot somebody, shoot ‘em a lot.”
The Sheriff's right. There are only so many po-pos to go around. So, if you're in a life-and-death predicament and the nearest copper is on the other side of town, your only hope is a boomer and a handful of freedom pellets. There are no guarantees you'll make it out, but your odds are better with a gat than curling in the fetal position and playing dead.
This Sheriff from the Sunshine State, and pretty much every non-leftist, appreciates the awesomeness of amendment part deux. The founding padres put that one there so the right people go to the cemetery. Namely, the baddies. No amount of understanding or tolerance will defeat a gun-wielding douchenugget, but another gun will. It's common sense.
