There are some fairly succinct ways to explain to your liberal acquaintances just how silly they sound when they argue against the right to bear arms, and a Georgia Sheriff has added another quip to the list.
The Second Amendment is sacred. In fact, it’s beyond sacred: It’s sacrosanct. It is unable to be infringed upon by any entity, political or otherwise, due to the protection of freedom inherent in the clause itself.
The moment that the Second Amendment comes under attack is the moment that itself becomes a living thing. It springs into action when cornered, but not without a whole lot of warning first.
Remind you of anything? Here’s a hint:
The reason that the rattlesnake was chosen as the symbol for the almighty Gadsden Flag, adorned with the iconic phrase “Don’t Tread On me”, is that the snake represents the sleeping giant of American independence. It represents the clause in our Constitution that says, in not as many words, “I’m going to let you know, loudly, that your next step could be painful or deadly”.
We are at full rattle in America at this time. The left’s anti-gun Fascism is treading ever so close to our Second Amendment, and we are letting out a cacophonous, rhythmic warning that future encroachments of the right to bear arms could be met with defensive force. It’s loud. It’s undeniable. And it’s unmistakeable.
Now, one sheriff in the State of Georgia is coiling around his force, waving his rattler with a ferocity not heard in some time. His warning is both stern and fair, just like that of the notoriously reticent rattlesnake.
“Our citizens have concealed weapons,” the welcome sign reads in part. “If you kill someone, we might kill you back.”
But it doesn’t stop there.
“Enjoy your stay!” the sign added. “We have ONE jail and 356 cemeteries.”
Jolley’s previous sign in 2015 defended the American flag and Christmas. He paid $553 for the sign out of his own pocket.
The text read: “WARNING: Harris County is politically incorrect. We say: Merry Christmas, God Bless America and In God We Trust. We salute our troops and our flag. If this offends you…LEAVE!”
It really doesn’t get much more plain and simple than that.
The left’s insistence that they will someday, somehow, come for our nation’s guns is absurd at best. They are waltzing into a nest of Diamondbacks with that attitude, and they aren’t going to be protected by their Birkenstocks and “vegan leather”.
