Florida Sheriff Says Sitting Ducks Need to Shoot Back


Every once in a while you hear a politician or law enforcement official being open about supporting gun ownership. Here’s an unusual example coming out of Florida.

Polk County Sheriff Grady Judd has openly said some things we all agree on when it comes to getting guns for self-protection. Here’s what he said: “The armed assailant doesn’t plan on you fighting back.  He plans on having a gun, doing all the shooting, and you’re just a sitting duck. Well, the ducks need to shoot back. If you’re not afraid of a gun, get one. And if you need to shoot somebody, shoot ‘em a lot.”

Well indeed. He also said that if you do not want to get guns, he says to get pepper spray or a Taser. He also says to keep your skills sharp and get a concealed carry permit and carry your gun with you whenever you can.

It appears that Sheriff Judd along with Brevard County Sheriff Wayne Ivey both posted the same message on Facebook advocating armed citizens. In Florida, carrying a weapon on a school campus is against the law. But Judd wants to change that and he is now training staffers at Southeastern University to shoot. Because they are being trained by a sheriff, he has deputized the staffers to shoot if they need to.

Can we clone this Sheriff Judd and this Sheriff Ivey? All we can say is that we totally agree.
