In case you missed it last night Milwaukee County Sheriff David Clarke Jr faced off against Piers Morgan and Milwaukee Mayor Tom Barrett. The topic at hand of course was the PSA that Sheriff Clarke telling citizens that personal safety is “no longer a spectator sport”. Contrary to what was toted out last night by Morgan, Clarke did not in any way tell everyone to go out and buy a gun and shoot up the city.
Morgan started out right away by calling Clarke’s ad contentious, before he even had a chance to defend himself. He then goes to Barrett who doesn’t seem to understand that Sheriff Clarke is the top cop in Milwaukee County and does have jurisdiction over the Milwaukee Police Department. The exchange continues back to Clarke and Morgan and this is where the MSM narrative begins to rear it’s typical ugly head.
Morgan goes back to insulting Clarke (along with talking over him), he states the ad is like a John Wayne movie. The insults don’t stop there, he asks about “theatrics” and wonders why Sheriff Clarke was using a deep, dramatic voice. Here is a little hint for you Piers, his voice is low, that wasn’t acting. But the insults don’t stop. He claims that the good Sheriff is trying to turn Milwaukee into the wild west. Obviously Piers knows nothing about Milwaukee and our violent crime per FBI crime stats, it’s like the wild west as it is. It has gone up from year to year, don’t we have the right to defend ourselves?
With upcoming furloughs and layoffs it IS our duty to protect our own families. There will be delays in officers arriving after a call to 911, contrary to what Mayor Barrett states. We don’t need to be victims. The second amendment is our inalienable right as dictated in our constitution and if an individual chooses to do so they can exercise that right. That is what Sheriff Clarke was saying. Mr. Morgan would have you believe that cowering in the corner like a scared animal will make it OK, that the bad guys won’t hurt you. An unarmed citizen is what criminals want because THEY DON’T FOLLOW THE LAW!
The progressive agenda the media is trying to cram down our throats would have you believe that tighter gun laws will save us all, but as I stated criminals don’t follow the law. They’re all for gun laws, then they have vulnerable victims. Look at what happened in the UK when they put a gun ban in place, violent crime skyrocketed. Look at Chicago, a city with some of the tightest gun laws in the nation. There were 500 people murdered last year, that is only murdered. It doesn’t take into account all the violent crime committed with an illegally purchased gun. Chicago leaves its residents vulnerable and the criminals take full advantage of that.
Don’t let people like Piers Morgan shut us down. We are better than that. Gun control isn’t a left vs right issue. This affects all of us. Stand up for your rights. Fight the agenda. Challenge those who try to cram gun control down your throat. Someday the safety of your family might depend on it.
