I would have really enjoyed seeing the reactions of gun grabbers in Santa Rosa County, Florida. After hearing their sheriff openly invite homeowners to shoot intruders and also state that he prefers it.
Just the News reported that Santa Rosa County Sheriff Bob Johnson had made his “stand your ground!” statement. Just the News reported that Santa Rosa County Sheriff Bob Johnson made his “stand your ground!” comments when Brandon J. Harris (32) broke into Pace homes.
The dogs are out and there are likely 20 deputies. He is jumping over fences and breaking into houses, as well as jumping on other people’s glasses. We finally caught him in the house that he had entered on Tom Sawyer (Road). He was then taken to a bedroom.
JTN pointed out Harris was a regular criminal. Harris was just 13 years old at the time he was first confronted with the law. Harris has been arrested 17 times since then. Sheriff Johnson stated, “He just can’t seem to grasp the idea that crime doesn’t pay.” ”
Johnson said that Harris was not identified as a law enforcement officer, but Harris’ shooter didn’t commit any crime and would not face charges. Johnson encouraged residents of the county to, “not only fight intruders but to also learn how to shoot better. ”
We don’t know the identity of the person who shot him. They thought they were criminals. Santa Rosa County is more than happy to receive anyone who attempts to break into your house. We would prefer you did.
It doesn’t matter who it was. We offer a gun safety class every other Saturday. If you are able to attend, you’ll be able to shoot better and help the taxpayers save money.
BOOM. Literally. This is the old “taxpayer relief shot”.
BASED Florida Sheriff Bob Johnson 🙌🤣

Sheriff Johnson wasn’t the only Florida law enforcer to encourage homeowners to shoot looters breaking into their homes. According to The New York Post, Polk County Sheriff Grady Judd advised homeowners to set fires to intruders by June 2020.
They love guns. I would tell them this. They love guns. They should have guns. I will be there tonight, loaded with my guns.
Sheriff Judd stated, “If they try to break into their homes to steal, or set fire to their houses, I strongly recommend that they blow you out the house with their guns. ” Leave the community alone”.
The Bottom Line: How encouraging is it to see respected law enforcement officers (and I loathe this trite, over-used saying) “say the quiet part out loud”? To advise homeowners, with conviction, to not only stand their ground during break-ins but also to use their Second Amendment rights to protect their property and the lives of their loved ones. And even better, to “shoot better” and save taxpayers the expense of career criminals like Brandon Harris.
I would not be surprised if Harris breaks into another house after being released from jail. But, this time he better think before he does, because the homeowner might just follow sheriff Bob Johnson’s advice.
