Polk County Florida Sheriff Grady Judd has stood up as Milwaukee Sheriff David Clarke did and encouraged those people he serves in his county to arm themselves to prevent criminals from making victims out of them. He stressed, that it is “more important to have a gun in your hand than a cop on the phone.”
“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. “It’s more important to have a gun in your hand than a cop on the phone.”
The statement came following a home invasion earlier this month in which a homeowner shot a home invader.
More and more, peace officers such as Judd are beginning to realize the laws do not stop criminals, but well-armed citizens do. Why? I’ll give you a clue: We the People.
The Constitution does not empower elected servants to lord rule over the people. Rather, it acknowledges that it is the people’s duty to govern themselves, while granting certain limited powers to their elected servants to accomplish on their behalf those limited functions for them.
