VIDEO: More LE Officials Urging Licensed Owners to Carry Guns

A Texas police chief who warns President Barack Obama in a social media video that trying to disarm Americans would "cause a revolution in this country" is the latest law enforcement official to urge citizens to arm themselves in the wake of mass shootings, reports the Associated Press.

Randy Kennedy, longtime chief in the small East Texas town of Hughes Springs, about 120 miles east of Dallas, says in the video posted this week on his personal Facebook page that the Second Amendment was established to protect people from criminals and "terrorists and radical ideology."

"It's also there to protect us against a government that has overreached its power," Kennedy says in the video. "You are not our potentate, sir. You are our servant."

He warned people in his town to prepare themselves: "Be ready when the wolf comes to the door, because it's on its way."

Law enforcement officials in Arizona, Florida and New York also have recently prompted citizens to arm themselves -- some using similar comments aimed at terrorism.

This police chief is very well spoken and absolutely right in what he said in this video.
Last Sunday night's presidential speech, Obama mentioned the terrorist attacks in San Bernadino and his answer is to push for more gun control. California has some of the strictest gun laws in the country and that didn't prevent or stop the killers from carrying out what they did. This was a terroristic act what doesn't Obama understand about that, it is his ignorance and beliefs. Remember that the p[oliticians and anti gun groups who strive to eradicate the Second Amendment are SUBVERSIVES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
