Florida Sheriff: 'Get a concealed firearms license and carry it'

Another Florida sheriff is urging citizens to arm themselves and fight back if they should find themselves in an active shooter situation.

Polk County Sheriff Grady Judd told WFTS ABC News that while running and hiding can be a good option during some active shooter attacks, he hopes people will prepare if they should need to fight back themselves.

“If you’re not afraid of a gun, get one,” Judd said. “Become proficient. Get a concealed firearms license and carry it. And if you need to shoot somebody, shoot ‘em a lot.”

“The armed assailant doesn’t plan on you fighting back,” he said. “He plans on having a gun, doing all the shooting, and you’re just the sitting duck. Well, the ducks need to shoot back.”

Polk resident Mary Dailey disagrees with Sheriff Judd.

“That’s ridiculous, absolutely ridiculous,” Dailey said. “I’m all for your right to own a gun if you are a responsible person, but you should have to prove it.”

Judd’s statement came days after a fellow Florida law enforcement officer, Brevard County Sheriff Wayne Ivey, made similar comments, calling on citizens to arm themselves and fight back in the event of another attack.

I have one and know many people that do. All it takes is having a business that deals in cash/makes cash bank deposits. Permits states that must be engaged in business at the time to carry. Now that bank ATM machines accept cash deposits, it is easy to make the case that you were on way to make at deposit at anytime of day.

True 10:27 AM, very true! I have a non-resident VA permit but MD won't even look at you regardless of your qualifications.

I'd you are a resident of Florida and have a permit to carry, you are legal in FL, GA, SC, NC and VA, until you hit the MD state line. So much crime in MD...why is it so difficult for a responsible person in MD with no crime records to be able to get a permit to carry? I have often wondered what is the percentage of crimes committed with stolen weapons in MD?

you better have a receipt that the time stamp matches with the time you say you made a deposit.
