HARRIS COUNTY, Ga. – A Georgia sheriff is politically incorrect and proud of it. As a result, the law enforcement leader whose contrarian PC welcome sign went viral in 2015, has a new, bold message for visitors to his county.
“Our citizens have concealed weapons,” the welcome sign reads in part. “If you kill someone, we might kill you back.”
But it doesn’t stop there, reported Fox News. Sheriff Mike Jolley showed he has a sense of humor that will certainly be mocked by the elite establishment, yet praised by common sense Americans.
“Enjoy your stay!” the sign added. “We have ONE jail and 356 cemeteries.”
Sheriff Jolley’s previous sign in 2015 defended the American flag and Christmas.
Moreover, he believes in the message on the sign to the tune of $553, which he paid out of his own pocket.
The text read: “WARNING: Harris County is politically incorrect. We say: Merry Christmas, God Bless America and In God We Trust. We salute our troops and our flag. If this offends you . . . LEAVE!”
At the time, Jolley told “FOX & Friends” he was “humbled” after receiving so much support, especially in his community, where he said people made supportive yard signs and t-shirts.
The politically incorrect sheriff didn’t shy away from talking about those who disagree with him, either.
“I spent 20 years in the Army to give everyone the right to disagree with me or anyone else,” Jolley said. “Hopefully, if they disagree, they can voice that opinion. But if it offends them, truly offends them, maybe they’re in the wrong country.”
However, Jolley isn’t the only Southern sheriff to encourage an armed citizenry.
“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,” Ivey said in the video.
“The video was about preparedness,” Ivey said on Fox & Friends. “We want our citizens to understand that there’s no way to prepare where the next attack is coming from, even the next active shooter.”
“Less than one percent of the people on Facebook disliked it,” Ivey said. “Everybody else loved it and the comments were overwhelmingly positive.”
About ten days later Polk County (Florida) Sheriff Grady Judd had a strong message that concurred with Ivey’s.
“The armed assailant doesn’t plan on you fighting back,” said 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.”
Hence, Judd says citizens should have a concealed weapons permit and carry their gun with them whenever they can. Moreover, 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.”
