Florida Sheriff On Terrorism: 'We're at War, Arm Yourselves!'
Terror-inducing dickbags have become quite pesky in recent times. Especially for our Euro-dwelling counterparts, who can't seem to go one week without having their derrieres shot, stabbed, or blown to bits by Islamic crotch-sniffers. With so many civilians being blasted to kingdom come lately, this Florida Sheriff has a solution. Simply put, weaponize yo' selves...
"Terrorists and active shooters know that our citizens have been coached to run and hide, and then patiently await help. In fact, they count on it so they can strategically target as many citizens as possible. What they don’t count on is being attacked themselves. Having to become defensive to save their own lives.”
"No matter who you are or what your position is on guns, there is no denying the fact that the only thing that stops a bad guy with a gun–or a knife–is an armed and well-prepared citizen or law enforcement officer. There is no doubt that as soon as 911 is called law enforcement is on the way, however, until they arrive it is up to you and those with you to neutralize or eliminate the threat."
Damn right, Mr. Florida Sheriff guy!
Yes, that gif may be a bit flagrant. I apologize for nothing.
You may be saying to yourself, "But those recent attacks have all been in not America. Why art thou fearmongering?"
Tell that to the proponents of man-love in Orlando, as we approach the one-year anniversary of the Pulse nightclub attack (see #DisarmHate? Orlando Victim’s Father Has Different Message on Gun Control… and Incompetence: FBI Loses Track of Orlando Shooter’s Wife. Yes, Really…).
Two things: 1) Yes, these attacks can and do happen here, and 2) Ask yourself how differently things would have played out a year ago, had one of the fancy lad patrons of Pulse produced a hand-cannon of his own and delivered some piping-hot return fire in the direction of Omar Mateen's ISIS-loving ass...
Carrying a piece may not be the end-all solution for terrorism, but it certainly ups one's odds for doing the surviving. With a gun, rather than helplessly dodging the lead being slung your way, you at least give yourself an opportunity to make sure the guy going home in the pine box is the terrorist butt-munch.
Terrorism or not, arming yourself and educating yourself on how to properly handle said firearm is always a wise contingency plan for when the caca meets the fan. Florida Sheriff guy understands that. With scores of psychos and extremists out and about, an equalizer strapped to your hip would be quite handy.
But, good luck explaining such matters to leftists...
