Milwaukee: Sheriff calls for armed school guards, condemns gun control
pioneer press ^ | 12-19-12 | Steve Schultze

Posted on 12/19/2012 8:41:49 PM PST by TurboZamboni

Milwaukee County Sheriff David A. Clarke Jr. calls for placing armed tactical officers or security officers "in every school and public place in America," in a commentary piece posted on a tea party website.

Clarke also condemns calls for gun control in the wake of the Sandy Hook School mass killings in Newtown, Ct., and says, "We have to resist with the ferociousness of a junk yard dog any -- any -- attempt by liberals to make us less free by chipping away at our constitutional freedoms."

He berates "liberals for exploiting tragedy once again in our country and try(ing) to use tragedy as a reason to take our rights away."

Suggestions of gun control "are the mind-set of sheep," Clarke says.

"Sure run and hide from a sociopathic killer. See how far that gets you. You know where that'll get you -- 26 dead at Sandy Hook School," says Clarke's article posted on the website "Tea Party Perspective." It was posted by Nik Clark, president of Wisconsin Carry, Inc., a gun rights group.

I wish CNN would give me a show where I could invite people to scream at them and talk over them.

I’d call it the “Prince Moron Show” or something like that.

what the Milwaukee Urinal and Sentinel, Wisconsin State Urinal nor the Crapitol Times cannot even have the decency to write this article. It takes one of the Twinkies Papers from Minnesota to write about Milwaukee County’s Black Sheriff, David Clarke. Twinkies is the name for the Twin Cities, but also the Minnesota Twins. It is about time we the people say enough about Gun Control We need politician control. Get rid of the corruption in DC, start at the top. Rid DC of the crap politicians.

Your elementary school are safer hanging around a biker bar after school than they are playing on the playground in their gun-free zone, zero tolerance public school.

Maybe the kids would be safer if every school was located next to a biker bar.

Comments:

1/ I an NRA Training Counselor, and was in the midst of teaching an NRA civilian instructor’s course to nine Law Enforcement officers when the tragedy occurred. To the man, they were all in favor of civilian ownership of firearms.

2/ Although they all have issued AR-15s, at least two of my close LE friends have purchased one for their personal use within the last week.

3/ I was at the Wally Mart gun counter this morning alongside a citizen; he was purchasing their last two AR-15s in stock. (From the female sales clerk: “We had a bunch in the back just a week or two ago - I don’t know what happened to them.”) I asked him “Are you an NRA member?” Answer: “No, I’m just doing this as an investment.” My comment to him (and to y’all out in FReeperLand): If you like freedom, put your money where your mouth is.

The high school where I coach baseball has one to two armed city cops on duty throughout the day in addition to four or five unarmed security guards.

thanks- I gave at the office(just kidding)

I give to GOA and my local gun rights group.

Gander Mountain had people lined up to buy guns tonight. Based on all their questions on the forms, most were 1st-time buyers.

Clarke is the only Dem we vote for (yes he's a Dem). However I disagree with him on this, slightly.... I'd rather have armed teachers. Not all; just those that choose to do so.

We need to end the concept of gun free zones; they have been proven to be free fire zones. Using cops to protect the schools costs money; having armed teachers would be free to the taxpayers. Plus the evil ones would never know exactly WHO has a gun....

One final note: How many more children must be sacrificed on the alter of “gun free zones”?

Rational? Really? You have lots of money to donate to the taxman to pay for this. Putting armed guards in harms way is simply a new challenge for the dedicated suicide killer to overcome. Surprise is on his side.

Face it. You don't want the police to prevent crime. The logical extension is to deprive you of your freedom for security to achieve its goal. The police are there to pick up the pieces after a crime and find the correct criminal.

Life is a risk. Depend upon yourself with your wits and arms. Keep good company. More cops ain't gonna help.

Think about bringing back reform schools and insane asylums. Dump the lawyers excusing nutty clients. Dump most of the psychology profession. They are nuttier that the mainstream population.

Milwaukee Mayor Barrett took issue with Clarke's assertion that placing armed tactical officers or security officers in schools and other public places would stop violent acts. He noted the 2009 rampage at Fort Hood in Texas that killed 13 and left more than two dozen others wounded.

"That was a place where they had many guns," Barrett said.

Mayor Barrett is mistaken. The Fort Hood shooting actually took place in a "gun-free zone":

http://www.latimes.com/news/la-na-fort-hood-shootings6-2009nov06,0,820085,full.story

Service weapons are checked daily and are usually only allowed to be removed from an arms room for training on a range or maintenance. Personal weapons must be kept locked and registered with the base provost marshal.

From the article: “I was appalled to see Sheriff Clarke’s over-the-top comments in print,” said Milwaukee Common Council President Willie Hines Jr., adding that the comments should make everyone in the county “uneasy.” “His is the kind of toxic rhetoric that would further divide the nation, and he spews it simply to advance his own extreme political agenda.”

Same ole, same ole, projection from a libturd....cuz we all know, his master Obammy hasn’t done his best to cause division amongst us all....

extreme agenda ping:

“[Assault weapons’] menacing looks, coupled with the public’s confusion over fully-automatic machine guns versus semi- automatic assault weapons —anything that looks like a machine gun is assumed to be a machine gun— can only increase the chance of public support for restrictions on these weapons.” Josh Sugarmann, executive director of New Right Watch, spokesman for the National Coalition to Ban Handguns, “Assault Weapons and Accessories in America,” policy report of New Right Watch and the Education Fund to End Handgun Violence, September 1988

“Self-interest has no place in society” Sandy Cuney, Handgun Control Incorporated, 5/6/94

“Our main agenda is to have all guns banned. We must use whatever means possible. It does not matter if you have to distort facts or even lie.” Sarah Brady, Handgun Control, Inc., The National Educator, January, 1994

“If I could have gotten 51 votes in the Senate of the United States for an out right ban, picking up every one of them... ‘Mr. and Mrs. America, turn ‘em all in,’ I would have done it. I could not do that. The votes weren’t here.” Dianne Feinstein, Senator, CBS-TV’s “60 Minutes,” February 5, 1995
