DeSantis Warns Potential Looters: ‘Florida Is A Second Amendment State’

An estimated two million people in Florida still did not have electricity in the Sunshine State as of Friday afternoon.

Unfortunately, some people are so morally bankrupt that they prey on those who are down, including stealing their possessions following a natural disaster.

With reports of looting being reported in the hardest hot areas of the state, Florida Governor Ron DeSantis warned potential looters to beware because Florida is a Second Amendment state.

“We are a law and order state, and this is a law and order community,” DeSantis said while speaking at a press conference in Fort Myers on Friday.

“So do not think that you’re going to take advantage of people who’ve suffered misery.”

During a press conference later in the day, DeSantis reiterated, “don’t even think about looting.”

The governor warned those seeking to “ransack people’s homes” that the state is heavily armed.

“I can tell you in the state of Florida, you never know what may be lurking behind somebody’s home,” DeSantis said.

“And I would not want to chance that if I were you — given that we’re a Second Amendment state,” the governor added.

Fox News is reporting that Lee County Sheriff Carmine Marceno also said that he “will not tolerate” anyone trying to take advantage of people suffering.

“We are not going to tolerate, I mean, zero tolerance when we say anyone that thinks they’re going to thrive on the residents of this county or state when we just took a horrific hit — I can guarantee you that is not going to happen,” Marceno said.

Marceno added that there will be “swift incarceration immediately with no tolerance.”
