After violent liberal mobs attacked cities, statues, and Trump supporters across the country, law enforcement officials soon feared leftists would attack the 2020 Republican National Convention in Jacksonville, Florida (RELATED: The Most Insane Reactions to the Riots).
But Jacksonville isn’t run by spineless liberals. Clay County Sheriff Darryl Daniels, a black Republican, is telling leftists if they try to spread their socialist violence in his town they will be met with force.
“If we can’t handle you, I’ll exercise the power and authority as the sheriff and I’ll make special deputies of every lawful gun owner in the county and I’ll deputize them to this one purpose: to stand in the gap between lawlessness and civility,” Daniels, announced in a press conference, flanked by armed deputies (RELATED: These States Are Prosecuting Rioters).
That means liberals mobs who try anything in Jacksonville will face something they don’t face in their leftist cities – armed citizens.
The fear of violent attacks on the Republican National Convention is real. In 1968 leftists invaded Chicago Stadium and waged violent attacks on the floor of the Democratic National Convention.
Leftists have planned terrorist attacks on previous Republican conventions. In 2008 the FBI foiled a plot by liberal terrorists to use firebombs to kill Republican delegates on the floor of the convention.
If they try it in Jacksonville, Daniels has an additional reminder for any leftist who forgets the First Amendment only protects your right to “peaceably assemble.”
“If you come to Clay County and think for one second we’ll bend our backs for you, you’re sadly mistaken,” says Daniels. “The second you step out from up under the protection of the Constitution, we’ll be waiting on you and give you everything you want: all the publicity, all the pain, all the glamour and glory for all that five minutes will give you.”
