America’s governor Ron DeSantis rightly and righteously pointed out to looters and criminals that Florida is not the place to blank around and find out, because you will find out that Floridians keep all kinds of crazy stuff in their houses, their back yards, and of course, on their gun racks.
“The other thing we’re concerned about, particularly in those areas that were really hard hit, is we want to make sure we’re maintaining law and order,” the Governor said at a presser. “You can have people bringing boats into some of these islands and trying to ransack people’s homes.
“Don’t even think about looting. Don’t even think about taking advantage of people in this vulnerable situation. I can tell you, in the state of Florida, you never know what may be lurking behind somebody’s home. And I would not want to chance that, if I were you, given that we’re a Second Amendment state.”
Perfect comments, perfectly delivered. Exactly the kind of thing normal people like from those who govern. But guess who aren’t normal? The left and the media.
So bring on the hysteria, y’all! I’ve labeled them with handy reference titles.

And DeSantis is back to being an asshole who will make the work of our first responsers harder. Bringing the risk of gun violence into the recovery efforts is the last thing Floridians need. Vote for @CharlieCrist. https://t.co/HT8WroTrg6

Odd commentary in the middle of a natural disaster but DeSantis is known for scaring the hell outta people and pitting neighbor against neighbor https://t.co/qGgDMr9qt0

A Miserable, Desperate DeSantis Warns Would-Be Looters Florida Is a ‘Second Amendment State’, something he’s never said about his bruhs, #NazisInFlorida. #RemoveRon #DeSantisDestroysFlorida https://t.co/SCPpc5gFsM

You had to know Joy Reid would have something stupid to say.

But of course the award for the MOST hysterical is Shannon Watts.
Gov DeSantis gives citizens permission to kill each other over property disputes during a natural disaster: “I wouldn’t want to chance it given we’re a Second Amendment state.”

It’s honestly just getting ridiculous watching this clown show constantly going on, right?
