Sheriff Rollins of Harnett Country NC Warns Citizens to Arm Themselves

The United States we live in is a different country than most of us grew up in. Violent crimes are not just committed in the cities of the United States. Violent crimes are also spreading into the suburbs of the United States.

Harnett County, North Carolina has seen a spike in violent crimes just in the last few weeks. Harnett's County Sheriff Rollins urges residents to arm themselves and be prepared to protect their families. 

Sheriff Larry Rollins told about 130 residents at a community meeting on Monday that they need to “be able to take care of business” until police arrive.  ABC11 news aired a portion of Monday's meeting

Not everyone is pleased with the advice Sheriff Rollins gave residents. I agree with Sheriff Rollins, when it comes to protecting your family, family comes first over a criminal who is breaking into your home. A criminal who breaks into your home does not care if they harm your family. So, why should we care if we harm them in the process of them committing a crime against you or your family? The safety of my family comes first!

Obviously, if you are a gun owner be responsible and store the gun in locked safe bolted to the floor. As Americans, we have the right to own a gun and the right to protect ourselves and family in the presence of danger.  


A well regulated militia, being necessary to the security of a free state, the right of the people to keep and bear arms, shall not be infringed.

I am all for background checks and a waiting period before a person is allowed to purchase a gun. But, I am also a firm believer in protecting our right to own a gun. 

When it comes down to the life of someone who invaded my home and the life of my family, I will use whatever means necessary to protect the lives of my family. If people who commit crimes against citizens of the United States do not want to be shot or killed, then do not commit violent crimes.  I have no sympathy what so ever for someone who commits a violent crime against someone else. I back Sheriff Rollins statement 100%.  


  1. That is pretty scary when law enforcement is encouraging residents to be prepared. I think I would be moving away from that area as soon as possible.

  2. I would be too. Even being in Michigan, I moved out of an area where gang members started getting bused to my kids school, because the schools were shut down in their neighborhoods. Where I used to live was a nice place to live when I bought my house there. Some people make a living off their farms there. They are giving up more than just their homes. It's crazy.
