    Spartansburg County Sheriff: Time For Citizens To Arm Themselves

    You certainly don't hear this too often from a LEO.

    Sheriff says: "I want you to get a concealed weapons permit. Don't get Mace. Get a firearm."

    He should run for Governor or better President of the United States.

    I think this would be a prefect time for a SC CCW. Who want to buy a small piece of prorety with me?

    I sent a facebook request. We all need friends like him.

    I'm sure the "anti-gun" people will be all over this like fleas on a dog. They will be screaming that "guns kill people", "blood will be running into the streets" and "think of the children!"

    On my end of the spectrum I say "Excellent idea Mr. Sheriff." "We need as Ted Nugent would say, no repeat offenders, just dead ones."

    This perp should be in the dead offender category no doubt.

    People across the country have been faced with issues like this for too long. I give this sheriff a ton of credit for speaking his mind, I just wish that the rest of country would step up and take notice that there is a need for people to take personal responsiblity for their own protection, as the police aren't there to protect you, they are there to arrest criminals. I know the members here take that responsibility as serious as I do, now it is a matter changing the system.

    Rock on Sheriff Wright! I travel through Spartanburg every time I go visit my parents in Georgia. I wish "ALL" Law Enforcement saw it this way.

    Oh, BTW, don't forget to hit the poll on that news page.

    Thanks for pointing that out. I was so impressed with the article I looked right past the poll. Impressive that 98% of the respondents so far indicated they either had a CCW or plan on getting one (and thats out of 2,500 respondents). Not too bad.

    That's my sheriff. This is just one more feather in his cap. He does a great job!

    You can tell by the Sheriffs tone of voice that he's truly frustrated with the justice system.
