A second Florida sheriff is urging citizens to get guns to fight back against terrorists and mass shooters.
“You have to fight and you have to be armed and you have to be prepared,” Polk County Sheriff Grady Judd told WPTV. “You can either stand there, as we’ve seen many times before, and be a victim, or you can fight back.”
“Become proficient, get a concealed firearms license and carry it, and if you need to shoot somebody, shoot them a lot,” Judd said, referencing mass shooters.
“They’re not accustomed to people shooting back,” Judd said.
“The armed assailant doesn’t plan on you fighting back,” Judd added. “He plans on having a gun, doing all the shooting, and you’re just a sitting duck. Well, the ducks need to shoot back.
“If you’re not afraid of a gun, get one.”

Judd is the second Florida sheriff to take this stance. Brevard County Sheriff Wayne Ivey made a video in which he urged citizens to fight back with firearms or improvised weapons.
A 2009 report from the International Association of Chiefs of Police concluded that teachers who fought back had a better chance of surviving a school shooting.
