People who enter Harris County, Georgia, are met with a “welcome” sign — but it’s not exactly like the ones you’re used to seeing.
“Our citizens have concealed weapons. If you kill someone, we might kill you back,” the sign reads. “We have ONE jail and 356 cemeteries. Enjoy your stay!”
That should send a clear message to criminals.
The man behind the sign is Harris County Sheriff Mike Jolley. He has made news with a different welcome sign in the past too.
In 2015, he posted a sign that stated, “Warning: Harris County is politically incorrect. We say Merry Christmas, God Bless America and In God We Trust. We Salute our troops and our flag. If this offends you… Leave!”
Of course, the sign was deemed to be politically incorrect and offended plenty of people. Some claimed the sign was unconstitutional and hostile toward non-Christians. But like the sign indicates, Sheriff Jolley didn’t really seem to care.
In fact, the sheriff liked the sign so much that he paid for it himself.
