DeSantis Warns Those Thinking About Looting After Hurricane: Florida Is A Second Amendment State

On Friday, Republican Florida Governor Ron DeSantis issued a warning to those who are thinking about looting after the devastation caused by Hurricane Ian, saying that looters are putting their lives at risk because “Florida is a Second Amendment state.”

“They boarded up all the businesses, and there are people that wrote on their plywood, ‘You loot, we shoot,’” DeSantis said. “At the end of the day, we are not going to allow lawlessness to take advantage of this situation. We are a law-and-order state, and this is a law-and-order community, so do not think that you’re going to go take advantage of people who’ve suffered misfortune.”

“I would not take that chance,” DeSantis said. “Florida is a Second Amendment state.”

Florida Attorney General Ashley Moody shared a video on Twitter showing individuals who allegedly tried to loot in Fort Myers.

“Florida will not tolerate looters taking advantage of #HurricaneIan to prey on vulnerable Floridians,” Moody tweeted. “They will be arrested and I have asked state attorneys to seek the longest pretrial detention possible to keep them locked up so they cannot commit new crimes.”

Republican Lee County Sheriff Carmine Marceno also warned looters, saying, “We are not going to tolerate — and 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.”

“Most importantly, safety and security as always,” Marceno added. “I guarantee you, we will be out here in full force, and any person that makes that horrific error that thinks they’re going to do something to one of my residents in my county, I guarantee you it’ll be swift incarceration immediately with no tolerance.”
