Polk County Sheriff Grady Davis. 

Given radical Islamic terrorist attacks and people's concern about safety, Florida's Polk County Sheriff Grady Judd advised that people who are not afraid of a gun should get one, "and if you need to shoot somebody, shoot them a lot."

He also advised gun owners to "get a concealed firearms license and carry it."

Sheriff Grady made his remarks to ABC Action News (WFTS) this week. 

“If you’re not afraid of a gun, get one," said the sheriff. "Become proficient. Get a concealed firearms license and carry it."

"And if you need to shoot somebody, shoot them a lot," he said. 

“The armed assailant doesn’t plan on you fighting back," said the sheriff.  "He plans on having a gun, doing all the shooting, and you’re just the sitting duck."

"Well, the ducks need to shoot back," said the sheriff.
