Harris County Sheriff Mike Jolley posted a message to warn travelers just how much they would regret attacking someone in his community.
Jolley used a sign to inform violent offenders that residents had concealed weapons and would fire back if attacked.
“Our citizens have concealed weapons,” the sign read. “If you kill someone, we might kill you back. We have ONE jail and 365 cemeteries. Enjoy your stay!”
The sign was put up Tuesday, amid a contentious national debate over Second Amendment rights in the wake of recent mass shootings, such as the one in February at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Fla. The sheriff said this message is his saucy way of welcoming people to his county while, and also, warning them that a number of the citizens exercise their right to bear arms at the same time.

Sheriff Jolley said: “The citizens have a legal right to protect themselves and their property. If you come into our county and kill someone, you might get killed back. Weapons are a tool. They’re not intended for someone to use in a criminal act.”
In a Christmas-oriented message, a county sign declared that the area was “politically incorrect.”
“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 said.
Finally, someone with common sense and a sense of humor! The Sheriff is taking a stand against nonsense. We need 3000 more Sheriffs like him. Those with the guts to stand up to the liberal cry babies.
This warning side will teach people to respect the laws again. This time, criminals can’t say they weren’t warned! You rock, Sheriff Jolley and the fine people that support you.
