If you don’t want to be a ‘sitting duck’ get a gun! That’s right!
Any criminal who is armed and dangerous and threatens your life in your home doesn’t plan on you fighting back. Sheriff Judd of Polk County says you are a ‘sitting duck’. If you want to avoid that situation, then get a gun and be ready to shoot back.
H/T Conservative Tribune:
Even in a group as tough as the sheriffs of Florida, Grady Judd stands out.
The tough-talking top lawman of Polk County, in the first year of his fourth term in office, has made a national name for himself with his no-nonsense comments on illegal aliens, his deputies fatally shooting a suspected cop-killer, and other topics.
But Judd’s latest advice to the citizens he’s sworn to protect is one for the ages.
“If you’re not afraid of a gun, get one,” Judd told WTVT, a Fox-owned television station in Tampa.
In a late June interview with the station about so-called “active shooter” situations like the one at the Pulse nightclub last June in Orlando, when an Islamic terrorist murdered 49 patrons of a gay dance club.
“An armed assailant doesn’t plan on you fighting back,” Judd said. “He plans on having a gun. Doing all shooting. And you’re just a sitting duck.”
The only way to avoid that situation, Judd said, is to arm yourself beforehand.
“Well, the ducks need to shoot back,” he said.

As the TV news story made clear isn’t the only Sunshine State sheriff who looks at it that way.
In early June Brevard County Sheriff Wayne Ivey created an internet sensation when his office posted a video of the sheriff explaining the cold facts of life – and death – when it comes to law-abiding citizens being armed.
“No matter who you are or what your position is on guns, there’s no denying the fact that the only thing that stops a bad guy with a gun or a knife, is an armed and well-prepared citizen or law enforcement officer,” Ivey said.
Not to be outdone, another central Florida sheriff, Michael Chitwood of Volusia County, told WTVT he agrees with Judd and Ivey completely.
“There’s not enough police in America to stop all of these threats,” Chitwood told the station.
Florida Sheriff Grady Judd once said,
If you are foolish enough to break into someone’s home, you can expect to be shot in Polk County, 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 Polk County as we can get.
After beginning his career with the Polk County Sheriff’s Office in 1972 as a dispatcher, Grady Judd quickly progressed through every rank – from Corporal to Colonel. As a small child growing up in Polk County, Grady had dreamed of being Sheriff. In 2004, Polk County overwhelmingly elected Grady to serve as their Sheriff, fulfilling that childhood dream.
Citizens in Polk County can be thankful for Grady Judd, a sheriff who strongly supports the 2nd Amendment – the right for every citizen to bear arms.
