Piers Morgan: “You want to arm everybody in Milwaukee. You do these racy Hollywood-style adverts, you want them all out there, armed and shooting… What you’re creating is a return to the Wild West in Milwaukee. So I think it’s actually relevant that you don’t have any idea how many people actually need a firearm at home to defend themselves.”
Sheriff Clarke asks Morgan: “Are we going to have an honest exchange here or are you just going to talk over me?” He insisted it’s a “personal choice” whether or not someone decides to own a gun to defend themselves, to which Morgan shot back by saying it goes beyond personal choice for a sheriff of any city to advocate citizens arming themselves.
Sheriff David Clarke Jr. – Had the good sense to suggest to citizens in his county that they buy guns to protect themselves. Naturally, the main stream media, namely Piers Morgan, found this an insane piece of advice and have decided to put him under scrutiny.
Transcript of Sheriff David Clarke Jr. “You can beg for mercy from a violent criminal, hide under the bed, or you can fight back; but are you prepared? Consider taking a certified safety course in handling a firearm so you can defend yourself until we get there. You have a duty to protect yourself and your family. We’re partners now. Can I count on you?”
Sheriff Clarke is not the only Sheriff standing up for the 2nd Amendment. Sheriff Mueller of Linn County, Oregon wrote a letter to Vice President Biden saying he refuses to enforce any gun ban in his county, and that he and his deputies will stop federal agents from enforcing any such law in his county.
