Georgia Sheriff Warns ‘if you kill someone, we might kill you back’
Harris County Georgia wants visitors to know if you kill someone they might kill you back and they have ONE jail and 356 cemeteries. So enjoy your stay!”
Harris County Sheriff Mike Jolley, who has displayed controversial signs before, placed the new sign Tuesday near the department office.
According to BPR:
A sign posted by a tough-talking Georgia sheriff has gotten so much attention that the law enforcement officer found himself a featured guest on “Fox & Friends.”
Harris County Sheriff Mike Jolley recently posted a politically incorrect sign outside his department warning visitors that locals may be armed — Jolley paid $553 for the sign out of his own pocket, Fox News reported.
“Our citizens have concealed weapons. If you kill someone, we might kill you back. We have one jail and 356 cemeteries. Enjoy your stay!” the conspicuous sign reads.

The “humble” sheriff told “Fox & Friends” the claim of 356 cemeteries was a tongue-in-cheek remark, explaining that the number of concealed carriers in Harris County have “tripled” and that was the motivating factor behind the sign.
“That’s the purpose, just to let people know that the law is real specific,” Jolley said. “If you are using a deadly weapon to commit bodily injury to someone the law says that a person can use a weapon to protect themselves.”
The sheriff was in agreement that an armed citizenry was the best way to deter crime.
This is NOT the first time the Sheriff has done something like this.
“Fox & Friends” drew attention to an earlier sign Jolley posted explaining that Harris County said “Merry Christmas” and “God bless America,” and “salutes our troops and our flag,” before telling the sheriff he “was Trump before Trump.”
The sheriff’s responded without missing a beat, “Well, it’s time to make America great again.”
