Harris County Sheriff Mike Jolley is going viral for his politically incorrect welcome sign.
Posted outside the sheriff's office in Harris County, Georgia, the sign informs visitors, “Our citizens have concealed weapons. If you kill someone, we might kill you back. We have ONE jail and 356 cemeteries. Enjoy your stay!”
Jolley explained on Fox News' “Fox & Friends” that the sign is a way of informing visitors that many Harris County residents exercise their Second Amendment right. He said the number of concealed carry permits issued in the county has tripled over the past few years.
“The fact that we have one jail and so many cemeteries is just a tongue-in-cheek way of saying law enforcement can't be everywhere all the time, so citizens have a right to protect themselves,” Jolley said.

This isn't the first time the sheriff has had some fun with signs. In 2015, Jolley put up a sign that read, “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!”
Jolley noted that he didn't see anything wrong with saying Merry Christmas or God Bless America, and that “we should go back to it.”
