Idalia Florida: "You Loot... We Shoot..." DeSantis Gives Warning to Would-be Looters After Idalia Hurricane

6 months ago
Florida Governor Ron DeSantis on Wednesday gave a warning to looters who are thinking about looting after the arrival of Hurricane Idalia on Wednesday.

During a media briefing in Perry, Florida, Gov. Ron DeSantis said, "I'd also just remind potential looters that you never know what you're walking into. People have a right to defend their property. This part of Florida, you got a lot of advocates and proponents of the Second Amendment. I've seen signs in different people's yards in the past after these disasters, and I would say it's probably here, ‘You loot, we shoot.'"

"I’ve told all of our personnel at the state level, you know, you protect people’s property and we are not going to tolerate any looting in the aftermath of a natural disaster,” Ron said.



“You never know what’s behind that door. If you go break into somebody’s house and you’re trying to loot, these are people that are going to be able to defend themselves and their families," DeSantis further added.
