Growing number of police chiefs, sheriffs join call to arms

4 posts in this topic

It's Florida Sheriff Grady Judd's duty to protect the citizens of Polk County -- but he figures it's their job, too.

One of a growing number of rural and big-city law enforcement officials who openly encourages responsible gun ownership, Judd believes guns allow citizens to defend themselves when police cannot.

“If you are foolish enough to break into someone’s home, you can expect to be shot in Polk County,” Judd said in a statement after a homeowner shot a would-be home invader earlier this month. “It’s more important to have a gun in your hand than a cop on the phone.

"

Such full-throated embrace of the Second Amendment as a crime-fighting tool isn't confined to red states like Florida.

“I want as many law-abiding citizens to arm themselves in this county as we can get."

One California police chief is backing teachers in his district packing heat. Detroit Police Chief James Craig has been a leader in urging his community to arm itself. A Maryland sheriff is working with the state’s general assembly to try to make it easier for citizens to obtain handgun permits.

In the Law Center to Prevent Gun Violence’s most recent ranking of states with the strongest gun laws, California (1), Maryland (4) and Michigan (15) ranked near the top of the pack.

Some gun rights advocates say terror attacks at home and abroad have contributed to a change in attitudes about gun ownership among community members and authorities, even in locales historically hostile towards the Second Amendment.

“That has helped play into it, and there’s no doubt the active shooter scenario has, too,” said Alan Gottlieb, founder of the Second Amendment Foundation. “You’re seeing people say, ‘How do you respond?’”

It's time to start chipping away at the anti-gunners, they've been after the 2nd Amendment long enough.

And PLEASE explain to me WHY it is LAWFULLY RIGHT to SHOOT someone and to KILL them, and ALL OVER A PIECE OF TANGIBLE PROPERTY?

 

When did the VALUE of LIFE fall below that of the VALUE of MERE TANGIBLE PROPERTY?

 

Answer: http://www.leginfo.ca.gov/const-toc.html

 

SECTION 1.  All people are by nature free and independent and have inalienable rights. Among these are enjoying and defending life and liberty, acquiring, possessing, and protecting property, and pursuing and obtaining safety, happiness, and privacy.
 

The Lawyers have made POSSESSIONS a PRIORITY over LIFE.

 

Lawyers = GREEDY = EVIL

Yes it is a bit harsh to shoot & kill someone for breaking & entering, but anyone foolish enough to break & enter needs to understand the risks involved. When you intrude someone's private space (house, car, bed, etc.) unwelcome, you may meet some resistance. What's the alternative? Ask the person who just broke into your house politely to leave? Call the police & wait 20 minutes? Lol. 

The firearm is the equalizer. When you are vulnerable or physically outmatched, it gives you a way to defend yourself. Your personal space, privacy & safety are not possessions. Do you really think a person should go to jail because they shot someone who broke in their house intending to steal or cause harm?
