FL Sheriff May Deputize Gun Owners If Needed to Handle Protests


In a video, Clay County Sheriff Darryl Daniels said he will “make special deputies of every lawful gun owner” in the county if their law enforcement is unable to handle the protesters on their own.

WTSP notes that Daniels calls out the mainstream media and Back Lives Matters protesters as “godless dissidents”.

He talks of the oath they all took to support, protect, and defend the Constitution of the United States and the government..’So help me God.’

“But God is absent from the media’s message or Black Lives Matter or any other group that’s making themselves a spectacle disrupting what we know to be our quality of life in this country,” Daniels says.

He warns protesters to stay out of Clay County and says he has a remedy for them if they come and cause trouble.

"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 this county and I'll deputize them for this one purpose to stand in the gap between lawlessness and civility," Daniels said.

Daniels is the first black Sheriff in Clay County history and he's drawn a hard line on what he'll accept on his streets.

Daniels ends the video with, "You've been warned."

  1. At last!! Someone who stands for what America is all about and defend our country from black lives matter radicalized dissidents who engage in rioting, looting and muder to bring about the ruination of the USA.

    1. Don’t forget “WHO” is providing financing, and transportation for these radicals..the DNC, soros family, hollyweird “actors”, and billionaires. All are in my opinion, communists that are eager to turn this country into a third-world communist-controlled crap-hole, and the “millenials” in this country are being indoctrinated to get behind them, and do not realize they are becoming CONTROLLED “drones” and subservient to the “controllers”. (talk about SLAVERY)

  2. About time someone makes sense
    Those who don’t like America need
    To go to China or Iran .

  3. Thank God for law enforcement like you who have the guts to stand up for what’s right and to defend our Constitution. As the father of a Florida police officer, I commend you and your department

  4. I will stay far away from that county where gun totters, untrained in gun safety and law, will act as police. That policy is a recipe for disaster.

  5. The sheriff of our south Georgia county has promised to do the same thing. I told him that I am ready to be deputized when the need arises. All you BLM and Antifa scumbags better stay out of Grady County.

    1. Do you believe every lie that comes out of Trump’s mouth? He gave no proof that antifa was breaking any laws or had any significant presence in protests. They aren’t even organized. They are a bunch wanna be heroes that can’t find their way out of a paper bag.

  6. Bravo sheriff, great to hear from someone who has the balls to let the lawless know where he’s coming from. I’m not in Florida but I am with you.

  7. If there was a Democratic president in office, he would have the national guard in Clay county disarming the goon squad and arresting a loco sheriff.

  8. Y’all going to be okay when these trigger-happy vigilantes start slaughtering kids in your streets because they were chanting slogans?

  9. Thank you Sheriff Daniels!… we commend you for having the guts needed to address all this stupidness (know as riots). May God bless you & your administration🇺🇸🙏🏻

  10. In the words of Sharon Stone from the movie “The Quick and the Dead”… “The Law has come to town.”

    Our county Sheriff who openly backed this concept against state agents, etc, retired. Fortunately, our new Sheriff believes the same way. In fact, our county voted NOT to be a sanctuary county. Pretty good for California. It’s a growing sentiment in this state. People are sick of Gov NewScum and his cronies ripping the people off like we are the serfs and they are the nobility.

    Good for this honorable man who stands by his word and his oath. That’s morals, ethics, integrity, pride, etc. What everyone should exhibit but few actually do.

    1. You go, my brother. Our policemen everywhere need all the support they can get. This defund nonsense has got to go. Good cops shd not all have to pay for the bad apples. And if we defund – who you gonna call in your own emergency – ghost busters?!

      1. Liz, these half wits that want to defund the police will go nuts if someone breaks into their house or rapes their daughter or just steals their lawnmower. Let them handle the body of a loved one laying in the drive way. the have no idea what the police do. And yes there are bad apples in law enforcement no different than in any other organization.IRS ring a bell.?
