Spartanburg County, South Carolina's Serious Sheriff
After a revolving-door recidivistic predator attempted to rape a woman in Sheriff Chuck Wright's Spartanburg County, he dispensed some advice to the humble citizens of his jurisdiction:
"I want you to get a concealed weapons permit," Sheriff Chuck Wright said at the Monday news conference, as reported by TV station WYFF. "Don't get Mace. Get a firearm."
Liberals, most of whom have never seen a firearm in person, like to portray concealed weapons not as a tool for self-defense, but as a step toward vigilantism and a threat to law enforcement officers.
Of course the decision to carry a weapon is highly personal. I'm interested to hear what our many lovely Ricochettes think of the good sheriff's suggestion.
