The Sheriff of Polk County, Florida encouraged his constituents to use their Second Amendment rights to defend themselves from riotous looters during a Monday press conference, warning potential looters that they’d be messing with a gun-loving population if they tried to commit crimes in Polk County.
Sheriff Grady Judd left no doubt as to his support of the Second Amendment rights of Polk County residents.
Seems like a lot of local police departments are more worried about law abiding citizens using guns for self defense than riotous looters. Not this guy. pic.twitter.com/1MXYs5ddmY

“The people in Polk County like guns, they have guns, I encourage them to own guns. — And if you try to break into their homes to steal, to set fires, I’m highly recommending they blow you back out of the house with their guns.
“If you value your life, you probably shouldn’t do that in Polk County.”
Some police departments and sheriff’s departments seem to have expressed more concern of the notion of law-abiding patriots carrying guns than they have over criminal looters wrecking mayhem on small businesses and the private property of middle-class Americans.
Patriots have lawfully used their firearms to defend their homes and businesses on multiple occasions since the beginning of the George Floyd nationwide race riots, with many looters retreating upon being confronted by armed Americans.
Sadly, many residents of blue states such as California and New York don’t even have the possibility of defending their lives and liberty with guns. Onerous gun control restrictions largely restrict firearm ownership to the politically connected elite, leaving millions of everyday Americans helpless at the hands of riotous criminals and complacent law enforcement seemingly more concerned with ongoing public relations efforts to appease the looters.
2A Revolution: The Number of Concealed Carry Licenses Issued in Ohio Almost Doubled In 2020
Gun grabbers take another L.
2020 was a monster year for gun sales. The unrest that ensued following the death of George Floyd motivated millions of Americans to get strapped. As cities became hellscapes filled with looting and random acts of violence, Americans learned real quick that the most reliable form of defense in such chaotic times is the right to bear arms.
In addition, a substantial number of Americans took their gun ownership to the next level by applying for concealed carry licenses. Some figures from states such as Ohio suggest that 2020 was also a record year for the issuance of concealed carry licenses. According to Cam Edwards of Bearing Arms, data from Attorney General Dave Yost’s office uncovered that approximately 100,000 concealed carry licenses were issued to Ohioans in 2020.
These figures are the most since 2016 and represent a 78% increase since 2019. More specifically, Ohio sheriffs issued 96,892 new concealed licenses, while 72.340 ohio gun owners completed license renewals. 2018 and 2019 were the top two years for renewed concealed firearms licenses.
Ohio is currently ranked as the 23rd most pro-gun state in the nation according to Guns & Ammo magazine’s ranking for most pro-gun states in America. Additionally, it’s ranked in a sub-par 34th place for states most friendly towards the concept of concealed carry. Ohio’s gun laws still need work, but the state is moving in the right direction after it recently passed a bill to strengthen its Stand Your Ground laws.
The Second Amendment remains a powerful issue and America First proponents would do well to embrace it during election season, when there are many angry gun owners ready to pounce on anti-Second Amendment incumbents and candidates.
