The Sheriff of Harnett County, North Carolina, wants the pubic to be armed and ready to deal with the recent uptick of violent crime in the area, ABC 11 reports.
“When I am out with my family, even though I am a cop, I don’t go anywhere without a gun,” said Sheriff Larry Rollins on Monday night before an audience of about 100 people, who gathered at the Spring Hill United Methodist Church to discuss how to fight back against the criminal element.
“I mean it’s sad we have to have that attitude, but I am going to protect myself and my family,” the sheriff continued. “I want my deputies at your house just as fast as they can when you got a problem, but you better be able to take care of business until we get there if you have to protect your family.”
Indeed. An armed society is a polite society.
