Florida Sheriff Implores Citizens to Practice 2nd Amendment: “This is War”
I am sure he means well but is a little confused over who was behind 911.
That’s why one Sheriff in Florida is urging citizens to continue to arm themselves, reiterating the pointed fact that “this is war”.
“A Florida sheriff’s office posted a controversial message on social media, urging citizens to arm themselves in self-defense.
“Brevard County Sheriff Wayne Ivey posted the video on Facebook Wednesday, two days after a deadly workplace shooting in nearby Orlando claimed the lives of five people.
“’Folks, now more than ever is the time for our citizens to be prepared to serve as the first line of defense, not only for them, but for their families,’ Sheriff Ivey said.
“’What’s next is to fully understand that this is war, and you better be prepared to wage war to protect you, your family, and those around you if attacked,’ he said.
“Ivey stressed that attackers rely on people running, hiding, and waiting for help, rather than fighting back.”
Ivey’s comments about “hiding” and “waiting” seem to be in direct response to a British public service announcement in which authorities urged Britons to employ those very tactics should they find themselves in the face of terrorist danger.
