Sheriff Wayne Ivey wants Americans to bring the fight to ISIS by being armed and ready at all times. The video below is a wake up call from this Florida sheriff to be “the first line of defense” in the war on terror:
IVEY’S STATEMENT: Terrorists and active shooters are using every weapon available to target citizens. Guns, knives, trucks, hammers, and even explosives have all become the weapon of choice for murderers who only have one goal–killing innocent and law-abiding citizens. It seems that almost everyday we hear of another attack taking place at a concert, tourist destination, church, business, or anywhere else in the world where they can strike fear in the hearts of citizens.
Ivey urged Americans to take their safety seriously and to determine to be “the first line of defense” against a terror attack. He stressed, “Let me be perfectly clear, doing nothing or just hoping it won’t happen to you is not going to save your life.”
Ivey mentioned that officials in other parts of the world are teaching citizens that the best thing they can do is “run, hide, tell,” and he rejects that paradigm, citing the fact that “this is war” and you win a war by fighting— not by running.
OUR FAVORITE PART OF THE VIDEO:
No matter who you are or what your position is on guns, there is 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. There is no doubt that as soon as 911 is called law enforcement is on the way, however, until they arrive it is up to you and those with you to neutralize or eliminate the threat.
Great point by Sheriff Ivey! The Manchester police took 8 minutes to arrive…that can be an eternity when a terrorist is rampaging.
