Texas Police Chief Asks Citizens to Arm Themselves Against Terrorists
Posted by Randy Kennedy on Sunday, December 6, 2015
Hughes Springs, Texas Police Chief Randy Kennedy posted the above video following President Obama's address to the nation Sunday evening. In the video, he encouraged citizens to take up arms against terrorists.
"I watched President Obama tonight and heard what he had to say about confronting terrorism, and I didn’t find his words encouraging at all,” Kennedy explained. “What I’m asking all of my citizens to do, all my law-abiding citizens, I am asking you to help me and our fellow law enforcement officers by arming yourselves.”
The population of Hughes Springs is roughly 1,766.
“We need to send a message to the criminal element as well to these terrorists and these jihadi who want to murder in the name of their god, and the criminal element that want to go out, you know, and just totally destroy our way of life.”
Kennedy charged that the president doesn't understand the Second Amendment.
“You are not our potentate, sir,” the police chief told Obama. “You are our servant. And you were elected to serve and protect us first. And I suggest, sir, since you are a constitutional expert that you better review your history on the Constitution and understand we are a free people and are subject to no one other than the almighty God and Jesus Christ, the King.”
