Hughes Springs Police Chief Randy Kennedy is warning President Obama that any attempt to disarm the American people will result in “revolution.”
Hughes Springs is roughly 120 miles east of Dallas, Texas.
In an announcement reported by the Associated Press, Kennedy said the Second Amendment is in place to guard Americans’ right to defend themselves from “terrorists and radical ideology.” Moreover, he said the Second Amendment is “also there to protect us against a government that has overreached its power,” and any attempts to disarm the citizenry will “cause a revolution in this country.”
Kennedy is calling for residents in his town to carry guns to fight terrorism. He says citizens must “be ready when the wolf comes to the door, because it’s on its way.”
In calling for residents to arm themselves, Chief Kennedy joined Sheriff David Cole (Steuben County, NY,) Sheriff Joe Arpaio (Maricopa County, AZ), Sheriff Michael A. Helmig (Boone County, KY), Sheriff Paul J. Van Blarcum (Ulster County, NY), and Sheriff Wayne Ivey (Brevard County, FL), all of whom are calling concealed carry permit holders in their counties to carry guns every day in order to fight terrorism.
