Ed Morrissey uploaded this video of the a PSA from Milwaukee Sheriff David Clarke, calling it “A surprising message from law enforcement”
I don’t think it’s surprising, its common sense:
While we wish we could be teleported to your home it ain’t going to happen. It will take minutes to get to your home and an attack will be over within seconds.
This Sheriff from South Carolina echoed the same sentiments a few months back.
It’s just plain old common sense.
But leftists and anti-gun nuts don’t have any:
“If he does not feel he is capable of doing this, and he’s not qualified to take on this role of public safety, he should resign and he should do it today,” said Jeri Bonavia of the non-profit Wisconsin Anti-violence Effort.
Bonavia says Clarke is asking citizens to become vigilantes.
“To issue a blanket statement that people should be out there, arming up, and taking care of safety matters that really law enforcement officials are trained to do, is just irresponsible,” said Bonavia.
The office of Milwaukee Mayor Tom Barrett said in a statement: “Apparently Sheriff David Clark (sp) is auditioning for the next Dirty Harry movie.”
What does that even mean? Dirty Harry movie….come on. He is urging citizens to take safety courses and arm themselves to make sure their family is protected until the police arrive. Where in the hell did he urge people to become vigilantes?
Man these people can be nuts.
