Polk County, Florida Sheriff Grady Judd is encouraging his constituents to purchase and carry a firearm. His reasoning? He wants residents in his area to be prepared in case there is a chance of an active shooter.
“The armed assailant doesn’t plan on you fighting back,” Judd told FOX 13. “He plans on having a gun, doing all the shooting, and you’re just a sitting duck. Well, the ducks need to shoot back.”
According to Sheriff Judd, residents should have a concealed carry permit (CCP) and they should regularly carry their firearm if they possess a CCP.
“If you’re not afraid of a gun, get one,” said the sheriff. “And if you need to shoot somebody, shoot ‘em a lot.”
