American sheriffs are banding together with advice for citizens to arm themselves in preparation for terrorism. Well this is troubling.

Courtesy of CNN:

In Brevard County, Florida -- less than an hour's drive from Disney World -- Sheriff Wayne Ivey was one of the first to post a video on Facebook. In it, his message was clear: "The only thing that stops a bad guy with a gun, is a good guy with a gun." 

Though he repeatedly cautioned against vigilante justice, Ivey made sure gun owners knew he wanted them to "proactively engage anyone who threatens harm through terrorism or mass killings." 

Ivey is confident that responsible gun owners with concealed weapons permits will partner with them in stopping an active shooter before police arrive on the scene, he told CNN. 

"We want you to be prepared to defend yourself, to protect you and your family," he said.

As it turns out Sheriff Ivey is not alone in promoting the "good guy with a gun" propaganda.

Ivey's video has been viewed by more than 4 million people -- among them, Marion County Sheriff Chris Blair, whose jurisdiction is about 100 miles northwest of Ivey's. He, too, decided to post an online video with a similar message: "If you are certified to carry a gun, I would like to encourage you to do so." 

In Arizona, the controversial top cop of Maricopa County, Sheriff Joe Arpaio, was even more direct. 

"My goal of utilizing 250,000 citizens with concealed weapons is to stop the carnage, stop the killing before cops arrive," he said. (Well of course Arpiaio was for this idea. He's a crazy person.)

Two sheriffs from neighboring counties in New York, not far from the Big Apple, echoed those sentiments with statements posted on social media. 

"The police cannot be everywhere. The Second Amendment and the laws of New York state give citizens the tools to defend themselves and their families from harm until law enforcement can arrive on the scene," wrote one of the sheriffs, Michael Schiff of Sullivan County.

Yes more guns in the community, what a great idea for reducing gun deaths. 

As we saw from that Daily Show segment with Jordan Klepper just having a gun on your person does not make you Dirty Harry.

You know I would like to know how much the NRA donates to the campaigns for these sheriffs.

Because something about all of this seems suspicious.

    We should make concealed carry horses like the anti-abortion information. Make them sit look pictures of shot and dead people and then dead children.

      Find it. Use it. That is all.

    Like I have said before - America is going to having mass fighting/shootings in the streets - neighbor against neighbor and cops (acting like military) will be involved too!

    Americans have a right to counter these 'fear' leading jerks!

      I once had a roomie that went to the dark side. He started out the most charming college student, or so we thought. His thing was not guns. We still felt terror. He liked to play with fire. We could have never saved ourselves with matches.

      These idiots don't get it, it is not just about guns. They need to deal with terror, bullies and all that in a way to make a difference with all terror and terrorists.

      These idiots who want to fight gun terror with guns also want civil war.

      They are not even addressing the issues. They are incompetents and need to lose their job.

    2. Anonymous2:32 AM

      Did the sheriff consider that if all citizens are armed, he would be out of a job? Why are so many southern police members overweight?

    3. Another bugger eat'n, pot bellied, knuckle dragg'n Oath Keeper. Just like sheriff Hanlin of the UCC shooting crowd.

    This is the anniversary of a horrible act of terrorism that attacked Wasilla in 2008. Wasilla has every reason to live in fear. The culprits were never caught. This must be a welcomed idea. What alternatives does Wasilla have? 7 years later and they are still in the dark. It is as if no one cares when a community is attacked. Something must be done.

    Wasilla Bible Church Arson

      Fuck Wasilla.

      Two days until Sandy Hook 3rd anniversary. Just remember, Queen Heifer said she bought Tawd a new rifle in honor of it.

      Poor little Alaska. they do everything wrong when it comes to terrorists.

      ... target ... it's reprehensible, and the people who perpetrated that act should be treated the way we would any other terrorist.

    3. What would you like done? The investigation either revealed nothing or it was covered up. Ignorance or deception. Successful either way for 7 years.

    4. Anonymous7:41 PM

      Since they clammed up, I say it is another cover up. It happened when Sarah Palin was at her peak. She made a lame apology, did her bible quotes and did NOTHING! She cares about other violence and terrorists and nothing about her church. The one she used and does not attend.

      I don't think anyone cares enough to do anything. It is good if it is added to a list about terrorist attacks, if anyone cares about terrorists in Wasilla and Alaska.

    5. Anonymous9:53 PM

      They rebuilt their church. How much did that cost and who paid for it?

      I don't recall hearing about insurance. When there is a fire, questions about insurance come up.

      What was the story about insurance?

    6. Anonymous9:47 AM

      By January there was an article @ coach is right. I also saw it @ WND. It is all Palinbots would need to claim they solved the church arson who done it.

      It reminds me of the same technique that Palin is using with Dakota Meyer.

      No one is saying anything in an official or direct manner. Things are implied. The mystery about who is the baby daddy for Sailor Palin is solved for those in the 'know' (alleged). The mystery about Sarah's church arson is solved for those in the 'know'.

      Somethings never change.

      Here is the biased misinformation by Kevin “Coach” Collins, He solves an arson that the officials flaked on, pos!
      'Wasilla Bible Church fire'
      'WBC Elder Tom Ryan revealed never before reported facts about this vicious crime.'

  4. Anonymous4:47 PM

    That's how they roll in Dumbfuckistan.

  5. I really, really don't get it. When the police even see a guy in Walmart carrying a gun, which they sell there, they shot him because he's 'pulled a gun'. How do they know, coming in, which one with the gun is the good guy and which is the bad guy? This is exactly why law enforcement officers are having such an extra tough time right now - more guns and more times they have to make that judgement: Do I shoot? Who do I shoot? What will happen if I don't? What will happen if I do?

    Maybe if everyone buying a gun had to sign a completely binding contract that if they get shot by a law enforcement officer while a gun is visible in their hands, the officer and the law enforcement agency will not be held responsible; the officer and the department cannot be sued and cannot be held liable for any damages. Do you think that would fly?

    You'd think LEO would want LESS guns, more restrictions. That's why I suspect Gryphen may be right.

      You forgot the unwritten/unspoken rule: carry a gun AS LONG AS YOU ARE LILY-WHITE, and not darker pigmented, or Muslin (sic).

  6. Anonymous4:57 PM

    Someone should keep an active up-to-date online list of all places where law enforcement is encouraging this ------ so the sane citizens can know where NOT to go. Maybe a dip in tourism income will make them wise up.

      Police Chief Randy Kennedy, the police chief of Hughes Springs in East Texas, issued a warning to residents this week urging them to buy guns to protect against Muslim terrorists and to fight President Barack Obama’s government if necessary.

    The dude looks like Drew Carey. More guns cause more crime. Someone breaks in your house, what are you going to do? Hold on, Here, have a snack while I go get my gun, load it, and kill you. excape, excape, excape any way you can, and turn out the lights. This message is not intended to scare. Bullshit.

    How much does the NRA pay these fear mongers and what's the cut per gun for the gun shops???

    1. Anonymous5:46 PM

      The sheriff probably lives in a van down by the river.

  10. Wow, this plays into the entire theme of terror that ISIS has planned for America.

    They don't have to send anyone here, they'll con us into killing one another in crazed fear, instead.

    NOTE: If you have a chance to catch a rerun of the CNN report called "Blindsided--how ISIS shook the World" make sure you watch it!

    I've had very little to say on the subject, being ignorant of the REAL information of what is going on in Syria and Iraq. No longer. They are playing Americans like carnival people do the rubes who go to the circus.

    and before you get the gun take safety classes

    and after you get the gun regularly practice at the firing range with both stationary and moving targets

    and get your eyesight tested often

    and have a gun safe at home and in your car

    and have separate place to store ammo

    and teach your children to never, ever touch a gun

    and have friends check often that you are not taking medication that could make you an unsafe gun owner

    and what about dementia or Alzheimer's onset


    gosh, the good sheriff seems to have left out some stuff about how to get the "good" into "good guy with a gun".

  12. Anonymous6:43 PM

    Yeah, that's right. Let's all go George Zimmerman on people because it's our right to take them out because they have a different opinion.

    Hey, $arah! Was the constitution that you barely understand meant only for you? Trump? Cruz?

  13. Anonymous6:49 PM

    I can see guns as home defense and even defending one's automobile. These places are pretty easy to identify the bad guy. Walking around with a concealed weapon looking for bad guys like Charles Bronson is idiotic on too many levels to list.

    Well, if Sheriff Joe Arpaio wants us to do his job, is he ready to take a cut in pay?

    Misleading title. America's sheriffs are not banding together. A handful of whack jobs- old fat white and racist from podunk counties elected by a population under four figures (and that's if all the cows are home) and even whackier, fatter and more racist, acted to hype their racist bonafides.we should have fought to free the slaves, then told them to be on their sorry ass secessionist way.they're an embarrassment, unfortunately one with lethal consequences for innocent people.

    Powerful storm set to rival strongest on record

    A potent weather system is expected to thrash the U.S. this weekend with hurricane-force winds and massive waves upwards of 40 feet tall.

    A potent storm that will cross the Aleutian Islands of Alaska this weekend could become the strongest recorded storm to impact the region.
    This storm comes a little over a year after ex-Super Typhoon Nuri became the most powerful system on record to cross Dutch Harbor, Alaska, which is located in the Aleutian Islands, with a central low pressure of 924 millibars (27.29 inches of Hg).
    The intensity of a storm is measured by the central pressure, with lower pressure equating to a stronger system.

    The daily show segment proved two things - innocent people will be shot along with "bad" guys and the "good" guys will get shot when the police arrive to see them waving their penis extenders around. The castle doctrine does not and should not extend beyond one's castle - i.e. home. Like when police start being held responsible for shooting people, when the "good" guys start being held responsible for the deaths of innocent bystanders they will calm the f*ck down but not until.

    The effin' Righties all have a permanent address on Maple Street. Overlooked in all this bravado is that when the cops arrive on the scene in response to an active shooter call - anyone they see with a gun is going to be shot first and questioned later.

    In Rockford, Illinois recently, two idiots were shooting at each other when a stray bullet went through a window, killing a 25 year old mother of 4 kids. Now the community is gathering together to make hristmas happy for the children. After Christmas, what then? Nothing will replace their mother. This will be repeated all over the country if everyone arms themselves. Innocent people will be killed, so the NRA can spread their hatred. These sheriffs should be fired for inciting violence. In a crowded mall, theater or church, how many innocent people will be shot?

    Are all sheriff departments full of stupid people? I've only had very limited experience with their members fortunately, but the ones I've encountered - when my mother-in-law died at home (she lived with us) - were not terribly bright. One guy looked at my driver's license and said earnestly, "it says that you have brown hair." At the time my hair was fast turning grey and our neighbors had to vouch for the fact that my husband had lived in the house for over fifteen years.

    On another occasion, when my husband had lent sheriff's deputies an extension cord for their chain saw to remove a tree downed by a storm on the road in front of our house, one of the deputies came up to our dog to be sure that she was wearing her proper tag. She was and she was on a leash as well. It's a good thing that she didn't flinch or growl at him or that would have been the end of her. Here where we live now, one or another deputy is always finding himself in legal trouble, like leaving a gun behind in a men's room. I find it hard to take them seriously. Overweight Keystone Kops and the Brevard county guy seems to prove my point. I'm sure he's too dumb to realize that his attitude is exactly what the Islamic extremists want.

    Why are so many elected sheriffs white porkers?

    These people are doing EXACTLY what ISIS wants done in this country. The phrase 'too stupid to live' comes to mind.

    WTF happened to "See something, say something"?!?

  31. It's FLORIDA!

    Brevard County. That sounds familiar. Is this the place where the Sheriff's 80+ year old friend shot someone and got off because he was some sort of volunteer deputy that donated a lot of money?

    Is it any wonder Wayne Ivey was endorsed by the NRA when he campaigned?

    Two of his officers were found innocent of involvement in prostitution one of his deputies was shot trying to arrest a women involved in prostitution.

    So much for a good guy with a gun. Guess his good guys didn't get enough training.

    One of the neighbors was a County Sheriff and he came out in his vest and boxer and emptied a round.

    They even called out a SWAT team.

    The woman was eventually arrested and her bail was set at $500.


    Man, I am so never going to Florida.

    This sounds more like clowns with guns.


Don't feed the trolls!
It just goes directly to their thighs.
