Sheriff Clarke Says "Get a Gun To Fight Back"

Milwaukee County Sheriff David Clarke
From an article at Breitbart.com, this excerpt:

Speaking live to Fox News’ Neil Cavuto on September 24, Clarke stated:
This is the world we live in now, [and Americans] are scared, but being scared is not enough. I say, you can hide under the bed, you can do all this other stuff, but you can fight back. And the more these individuals, these perpetrators, realize that somebody is going to quickly be able to counter their nonsense, I think you’ll see less [of these attacks]. If nothing else, you’ll be able to play a role in saving your own life.
Clarke said that as things now stand, attackers pick soft targets and “know that they’ll be able to shed a lot of blood before the situation is stopped.” He said Americans need to “wake up and get out of this naive view that the police will be able to protect everybody all the time.” He talked about Public Safety Announcements (PSAs) he runs in Milwaukee County, reminding residents that “they are the front line in their own security.”

Go. Read the whole thing.

This sheriff should run for President! A very good article and full of real truth and common sense.

Rev. Paul said...

Agreed, ma'am. Thank you.

Very well done, and he's right. We NEED to carry every day!

Rev. Paul said...

IF more of us did that, there'd be fewer mass shootings, and that's a fact.

I have great respect for the Sheriff.

We have started to carry everywhere we legally can. At first I was greatly hesitant, but your post the other day helped to show that I misunderstood what I was reading in the Bible and that God will not hate me should I ever have to shoot someone. (But I will also thank God for keeping us safe so I do not need to.)

Be safe and God bless.

Linda, thank you for your kind words. Regarding God and His watch over you, I believe you're spot on.

Jim, amen!
