Kudos to Sheriff David Clarke Jr., who understands that being a citizen of a free country entails rights and responsibilities, and that self-defense falls under both categories:
A sheriff who released a radio ad urging Milwaukee-area residents to learn to handle firearms so they can defend themselves while waiting for police said Friday that law enforcement cutbacks have changed the way police can respond to crime.
In the 30-second commercial, Milwaukee County Sheriff David Clarke Jr. says personal safety is no longer a spectator sport.
“I need you in the game,” he says.
“With officers laid off and furloughed, simply calling 911 and waiting is no longer your best option,” he adds. “You can beg for mercy from a violent criminal, hide under the bed, or you can fight back. … Consider taking a certified safety course in handling a firearm so you can defend yourself until we get there.”
The ad has Milwaukee’s moonbat Mayor Tom Barrett screeching like a stuck pig. Several years ago, Barrett was worked over with a tire iron. As Clarke notes,
“A firearm and a plan of defense would have come in handy for him that day.”
Clarke isn’t the only local law enforcement official refusing to read out of the playbook provided by the federal government–liberal media axis. Like a majority of gun-owning citizens, many will defy unconstitutional restrictions on our right to bear arms, including the great Joe Arpaio, as well as many other American heroes like Tim Mueller and Robin Cole. As Implied Inference reports,
Over 90 Sheriffs, as well as the Sheriffs’ Associations in 2 states, have publicly spoken out against the Obama/Feinstein gun grab. Across the country, more and more state and local law enforcement organizations and individual LEO’s (Law Enforcement Officers) are saying, “WE WILL NOT COMPLY”.
This number has continued to rise.
Americans are waking up to the situation. The harder left-wing authoritarians push, the more resistance they will encounter.
