We Can’t Afford to Wait on the Attack
We Can’t Afford to Wait on the Attack-That’s what Brevard County Sheriff, Wayne Ivey said in a video released last Wednesday on their Face Book Page.
In his own words, Brevard County Sheriff, Wayne Ivey, is one of the most politically incorrect sheriffs in the United States.
In this “Public Service Video”, the sheriff reminds Floridians about their right to own, possess and use a firearm for self defense against terrorists in Florida.
He criticizes other places both here and abroad for telling their citizens to “Run, Hide and Tell”. “What’s next?”, the sheriff states, “ask you to run, hide and draw a line in the sand daring the cold blooded murderer to cross it?”
“NOT HERE!” He states.
What’s Next is to Fully
Understand This is War!
He further says-“In My Book, What’s Next is to Fully Understand This is War and you better be prepared to wage war to protect yourself and family”.
He says-“Terrorist and active shooters know our citizens are coached to run and hide, and then patiently await help. In fact they count on it so they can strategically target as many citizens as possible”.
“What they don’t count on,” he goes on to say, “is being attacked themselves.” No matter who you are, or what your position is on guns, there’s no denying the fact that the only thing that stops a bad guy with a knife or a gun, is an armed and well prepared citizen or law enforcement officer.”
Spoken Like a True Floridian
Don’t think for a minute this guy is just some dumb redneck Florida sheriff.
Sheriff Wayne Ivey has been a Law Enforcement Officer for over 35 years. He is a graduate of the FBI National Academy 237th Session and has a Bachelor’s Degree in Supervision and Management from Daytona State College. His background in law enforcement includes Management, Criminal Investigations, Narcotics, Patrol Services, Public Integrity Investigations, and Corrections.
Prior to being elected in 2012, Sheriff Ivey served the citizens of the State of Florida as the Resident Agent-in-Charge for the Florida Department of Law Enforcement. As a member of the Florida Department of Law Enforcement, Sheriff Ivey developed numerous programs that were not only nationally recognized for their innovation, but were identified as national models to investigate crime.
Sheriff Ivey has testified before the United States Congress on law enforcement related matters and has extensive experience in the area of crime prevention innovation.
Sheriff Ivey speaks regularly on topics such as Identity Theft, Crime in America, Human Trafficking, Domestic Violence, and Self Defense through Mental Preparedness. He firmly believes that crime prevention and education are vital to reduce our crime rate and protect our community.
He is the recipient of the President’s Award for efforts in crime prevention and community awareness from the Florida Crime Prevention Association (FCPA).
We know there’s some of our readers that are going to be anti-gun no matter what. To those readers we would like to remind you that if you live in Florida, this state has some of the most liberal gun control laws in the nation.
Some will say-Look at all the shootings in Miami and Broward
We know, we watch the news too. The real facts are that compared to other cities with similar populations, like New York, Detroit, Los Angeles, or Chicago, Miami-Dade and Broward pale in comparison.
Chicago in point, has a shooting every single day. If you live here you know that is not the case here. We would also point out-the cities mentioned above have some of the strictest gun control laws in the nation, yet still have the worst statistics for gun violence.
We don’t think it’s a coincidence that more terror attacks are happening in Europe than in the U.S.. The terrorist know a lot of Americans are armed and it must scare the hell out of them.
Our founding fathers gave us the second amendment for more than one reason.
Look at it from a national viewpoint
Every single other country in the world understands that if they went to war against us and somehow managed to win, it would be incredibly difficult to keep this country with about two-thirds of U.S. citizens owning firearms and God knows what else. Those stories you might have heard about people at the end of the Vietnam war bringing home fully automatic M-16’s and hand grenades are true, so we can only imagine what some may have laying around their homes in this country.
How Does Broward’s Sheriff Stand on This?
Our readers know that we support Broward Sheriff Scott Israel on most things. We feel he is doing a great job of cleaning up corruption in his own department and Broward in general.
This is one of those things we differ on. The Sheriff has made it no secret how he feels about gun control.
In his Sheriff’s Monthly Message, published March 01, 2017, after the shooting at Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood Airport, LEGISLATORS, DO YOUR JOB AND PASS COMMON SENSE GUN LEGISLATION NOW, he states the following:
“It would also make the job of law enforcement far more difficult and divert them from the real threat. In such a stressful and chaotic situation, with shots being fired in all directions, how could we expect law enforcement to recognize the good guys from the bad ones?
Seems like the sheriff feels the legal, responsible gun owners in Broward lack the mental capacity to know when and how to use those firearms, or even have the sense to put them down at the first sign of law enforcement.
The point of using a firearm, a last resort we should add, is to stay alive. None of us have a wish to become a police shooting statistic either. Truth is by the time the police get there it would probably be over with anyway.
We Can’t Afford to Wait on the Attack-So to sheriff Israel-The day we can call 911 and you show up within a couple of seconds, is the day we will consider leaving our guns home.
Sheriff Ivey also has a great innovative weekly crime show called “Wheel of Fugitive”.
Each Tuesday, a new fugitive is singled out for attention based on the luck of the spin. Ivey’s “game show,” complete with flashy graphics and a rock soundtrack, has caught numerous fugitives. Some even turning themselves in.
