    Milwaukee Mayor Tom Barrett ran against Scott Walker for Governor and lost. Just another liberal sore looser.

    I saw him on Fox earlier today. He didn't say not to call 911, he just indicated it may not do much good. I also don't recall him saying anything about firearms, he just said to get self defense training.

    I'm pretty surprised the sheep in Milwaukee elected this man (the sheriff, that is). Good for them. He is exactly correct.

    a black sheriff in the urban north supporting private citizen's gun rights is a rare thing, they dont know what to make of him since they cant throw out the race card.....

    He said to take a certified firearm safety class. I sure heard the word "firearm" several times in the ad.

    Twice, actually. He lost in the regular election in 2010, and then lost again recently when the liberals forced a recall election.

    Send Sheriff Clarke a thank-you note here:

    [email protected]

    Automated reply I received:

    If you email the sheriff regarding an emergency you should prepare for natural selection.

    Pima County Arizona could use Sheriff Clark to replace the dipstick weenie we're stuck with.

    [Mayor] Barrett was beaten up several years ago by someone with a tire iron, and [Sheriff] Clarke said he thought that would make the mayor "a lot more sensitive to people being able to defend themselves in such instances. A firearm and a plan of defense would have come in handy for him that day."

    To use Okie's immortal words...... No **** Sherlock!

    My guess is the good mayor isn't very bright and it may take another tire iron incident, or two, to make him sufficiently sensitive to the need for people to defend themselves.

    In my opinion Mayor Tom Barrett is the dumbest mayor in the U.S.A. (Scott Walker won his election, and then his recall election because Tom Barrett was his opponent). Milwaukee has a large "poor side of town", and it is a war zone, much like Chicago. Sheriff Clark is trying hard, but he sure could use Obama's help, as the problem is as much a race problem as it is a gun problem. Sheriff Clark is trying to help his race, and all the crying moms, and Obama is ignoring it. If Obama didn't need an excuse to ban guns, he could really help sheriff Clark.
