Brevard sheriff urges residents to carry guns, fight back after attacks

In a Facebook post titled, “We can’t afford to sit back and wait for the next act of terrorism,” Brevard County Sheriff Wayne Ivey reiterated Wednesday that citizens carrying guns is the best line of defense.

Ivey’s message comes after recent terror attacks in England and a workplace rampage that left five dead in Orange County.



“No matter who you are or what’s your position on guns, there’s no denying the fact that the only thing that stops a bad guy with a gun or a knife, is an armed and well-prepared citizen or law enforcement officer,” Ivey said.

Ivey encouraged residents to sign up for self-defense classes.
