Wisconsin Sheriff David Clarke kicks some liberal butt at NRA convention

Wisconsin Sheriff David Clarke will surely have a target on his back now after his superb comments at the annual NRA convention in Indianapolis. As reported by The Blaze, Clarke revealed the seven words he would add to the Second Amendment: “Keep your hands off our guns, dammit.” What Sheriff Clarke again demonstrates is for conservatives it’s nothing to do with race — it’s all about individual character.

His comments about amending the Constitution were aimed at former Supreme Court Justice John Paul Stevens, who said in his recent book that he would change the Second Amendment by adding five words in the middle: “A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms when serving in the militia shall not be infringed.”

“My reaction was, ‘What!’” Clarke said, adding, ”Just what part of ‘shall not be infringed’ does Justice Stevens not understand?” That comment drew another standing ovation. But he wasn’t done there, going on to say he was sick of the Second Amendment being the ”bastard child of the Bill of Rights.” “The armed citizen made America free and the armed citizen will keep America free!” Clarke said, also calling the armed citizen the “great equalizer” and giving examples of three such instances in his area. “Those firearms in the hands of law-abiding citizens saved people’s lives,” he added, declaring he “damn well meant it” when he took his oath to defend the Constitution.

I always say that an armed person is a citizen, and an unarmed one is a subject — I believe Sheriff Clarke would agree.

I first met Sheriff David Clarke Jr. in 2011 when we held our Black Conservative Forum in the House Small Business committee room. I knew then this was a leader. A man of resolve and principle who is unwavering in his commitment to upholding the rule of law and justice — in other words the complete opposite of Attorney General Eric Holder.

What Sheriff Clarke obviously now understands is that he’s a target for the liberal progressive racist Left. However, I don’t think he’ll be losing sleep over folks like “pajama boy” calling him names. Just look at the image he cast as he stood at that podium — an image that would make Vladimir Putin pay attention. What Sheriff David displays is that which needs to be restored, not just in the black community, but across America: strength and might, combined with resilient competence, commitment, and conviction.

Sheriff Clarke has indeed earned a target, and it is a target he will undoubtedly wear with pride and honor. Slowly but surely there is a growing number of Spartans stepping forward in America — color and gender not of concern — their patriotic warrior heart is all that matters.

And so Sheriff David Clarke Jr. took the stage and like a true man of Sparta told the gun control liberal Left, Molon Labe!

This man is a HERO here in wisconsin, I love his blunt straight forward approach to the maters at hand.. he does not pull and punches.. period.

We need more Americans in positions of authority like Sheriff Clarke saying and doing the right things. How refreshing would that be in this day and age!

Yes we definitely do, and it isn’t the party Democrat or Republican that make the man, it is the man himself, as I know Republicans that are RINO’s and John McCain is one of the worst! It is men like Sheriff Clarke that we need to be the Police officers of our republic! Strong 2nd Amendment supporters!

I agree 100%. Men defined the makeup of this country, not parties. It will take real men to lead it once again. At the present moment our country is controlled by a bunch a cowards. Throw Parties out the window because the same “Leaders” in the Executive and Legislative branch only wish to use partisan politics as a divisive tool. It doesn’t matter if they’re Democrat or Republican because the Banks and MNC’s contribute to both sides. The two party system is nothing more than a circus act meant to distract and entertain while the man with the big megaphone… Read more »

One question – why does Sheriff Clarke stay with the anti-2nd Amendment Dummycrat Party? They left him long ago. Otherwise, well said and done, sir, thank you for your steadfast devotion to the Constitution & 2nd Amendment.

Ben
Guest

How old are you? Dummycrat party? Really? I don’t think democrats are that childish to stop believing in a man who is good at his job. Most people can look through that..

I would like to challenge how you think about groups of people and over generalizing them. While I am a registered republican, I look at issues and think pragmatically on what is best for myself, and the future generations of people. Image a world where most people think like that please.

If he *is* still on the Dem ticket, I suspect that he will have to change now as I doubt his party will support him after that. I would even see if we could get him on the Libertarian ticket.

Sheriff David Clarke Jr., is the very type of Law Enforcement personnel that we need enforcing the laws of our society, and that supports our US Constitution and Bill of Rights as the Gospel; I have highly respected him, and stood by him, in support ever since he first surfaced a while back! We need men…women…Patriots that are exactly like, Him, Lt. Col. Allen West, Senator Trey Gowdy, Ted Cruz, Senator Jeff Sessions of the state of Alabama and others that fit into this same category; it is we the people, and we OathKeepers and III%ers, that stand with the… Read more »

Bravo, Sheriff Clarke! More public figures need to have your guts to speak out about upholding our Constitution. I feel sorry for civil service police commanders who are dragged up on stages to be used as props for liberal politicians’ pandering gun-control speeches. Want to be banished to the Statistical Unit or Materials & Supply the rest of your career? Just tell the nice reporters your REAL feelings about the Second Amendment. More and more elected sheriffs are letting America know that law enforcement is not the lock-step gun-grabber legion that liberals would have us believe.

Gun control is not a race issue. An issue some people have is that people who are felons and people with known and documented mental illness can currently get guns in secondary gun markets like gun shows. I love guns and I think every sane and law abiding citizen should be able to have to the right to have a gun. Good citizens should be able to without a gun registry but don’t you think we should make it harder and illegal for the mentally ill and felons to get items that can most easily kill many people .I want… Read more »

first you have to enforce the laws on the books concerning the crime at hand. second you have to ensure the punishment fits the crime. third the punishment has to be carried out 100%. once the three steps have been completed the crime rate will go down but not fully non-existent. as crime is a never ending battle because there will always be an idiot that is willing to take the chance to perform the crime. gun control does absolutely nothing for crime prevention! guns in the hands of good people will be an asset to the police not a… Read more »

I hope and pray that the mentally ill could be helped and kept from injuring themselves and others… but like the criminals, they FIND A WAY TO GET WEAPONS and Not only guns!!! It is VERY DIFFICULT to have a child (adult or not) kept from harming others. So very sad, but we cannot give away our rights. Let the Feds/ Law get the illegal weapons from the criminals and stop focusing on the registered gun owners.

Robert Kunsman
Guest

most of the people found to have mental problems that commit a gun crime were not disclosed prior to the act as for illegals you have to produce legal Id to purchase a gun and yes there is a seciondary market but its not prevalant at gun shows Id is needed to buy guns there even from private parties

Motes Electronics
Guest
no, Ben. We can not allow laws to be passed banning gun sales to the mentally ill because the government is the one who determines illness now. We know for a FACT that the government has declared ALL Christians AND gun owners to be mentally ill already. Meaning, that all gun sales could be ended by that one law. It’s high time to think. Quit being steered by the left’s emotional propaganda. Their crazy’s that shoot up schools and bases are on government drugs that are proven to cause such out burst. These incidents are engineered to use as colas… Read more »

So there’s a law passed by Congress, signed by the President and upheld by the Supreme Court when it was challenged that states that all Christians and gun owners are mentally ill? You need help.

How did a leftist paradise like Milwaukee ever get together to elect this man Sheriff?

CNS74
Guest
He was initially appointed to the position by former Gov. Tommy Thompson, when the previous sheriff left office mid-term. Since then,Milwaukee County residents have continued to vote to keep him in office. He runs as a Democrat, but we all know that he is a Conservative. He has some excellent ideas for the city of Milwaukee and there are many who hope that he would challenge Mayor Tom Barrett in the next election. Barrett is ineffective, incompetent, and continues to promote the same liberal policies that have failed Milwaukee for the past 50 years. There is a high poverty rate… Read more »

Thanks for the explanation, CNS. I used to live in the ‘burbs of Milwaukee, and really loved it there, but would not buy in the city because of the taxes. I guess because Clark is black and runs as a Dem, nobody thinks twice about voting for him. Frankly, I think if a person ran a campaign without the party label, but merely talked about what they believe, conservatives would win more often. Susannah Martinez, Governor of New Mexico, told the story of her conversion at the GOP convention in 2012. She said that she was a die-hard Dem until… Read more »

Great. Because no one bothers to study history they don’t know the intent of the amendment in the first place. The court justice was right. Not only that but that’s how the amendment was meant to be written in the first place.

Why would a cop not be for gun control? He’s not a bright guy.

ShiekYerbouti
Guest

There is no “gun control” there is however “people control” Stop being an idiot.

yannaro
Guest

The great majority of gunshot deaths or wounding is between people who know each other, even if indirectly. Very few occur in robberies or house break-ins.

ShiekYerbouti
Guest

Is that why say Chicago, Detroit, DC, New Orleans and LA have those murder rates? Most Gunshots are suicides but that is beside the point.

yannaro
Guest

Reprisal is a pretty strong word. Governments in Japan and Britain are freely elected and subject to change. Those societies are a lot less violent than ours. Why?

ShiekYerbouti
Guest

Not true but weak try. Japan has a very high suicide rate albeit low crime rate. England has a very high crime rate. both have outlawed guns. They don’t have citizens they have subjects.

As a former “COP” (Police Officer) I loved armed citizens. It was the armed thugs that I hated. Armed Citizens helped save my life once. But then, you wouldn’t know what it is like wearing a badge, so don’t make remarks you don’t understand. That makes you not a bright guy.

brucebj
Guest

You really don’t get it… Only law abiding citizens can qualify for a concealed carry permit after an extensive background check by both local and federal (FBI), law enforcement, finger prints and all. Therefore those law abiding citizens are his brothers in arms he can count on to have his back, not be a threat. THINK!!!

gadgetstan
Guest

You do realize that the same “law-abiding” citizens can also take their guns and funnel them to the criminals, making entire neighborhoods very difficult for police to control? You do have to realize that it’s not the Wild West anymore and most communities in America have adequate police protection? There is no need for everyone to be armed.

cojar

Name me one time when police saved lives by shooting a perp? By the time they arrive and shoot a perp there is already a pile of dead bodies. Are you REALLY this lacking in common sense? And who are YOU to dictate to the rest what we do or don’t NEED? Our founding fathers, men much smarter than you, thought we do NEED them. What a presumptuous, elitist snob and coward. You would stand behind tyrannical government while they disarm fellow citizens, and applaud. People like you make me sick!

gadgetstan
Guest
I’ve found that in multiple instances, especially the Fort Hood shootings and the Arizona shooting with the Senator, Arizona being an open-carry state, it still didn’t stop people from being killed. The main issue you have with letting people carry guns everywhere to stop mass shootings is that it will be very hard to spot friend from foe. Remember, these shooters also get the drop on their targets by surprise. By the time anyone is ready to get back up and respond, they may already have done the most damage. Even military leaders have known throughout the ages that the… Read more »

Sheriff’s are voted into office, so they can pretty much speak their minds. Police Chief’s on the other hand are hired and fired by their respective Cities, so must tread carefully.

cojar

And this is the reason that Sheriff’s have so much power. I think that Sheriff’s, not cities, should hire and fire ALL law enforcement within their counties, and within cities in their counties.

Reba

Then it is time “The People” demand their Governors change the Law, so that Police Chiefs are elected by “The People”.

Ken Hicks

WOW… can you imagine what it would be like to have the people elect the Chief of Police! Consider the “gay” COP in San Francisco… but then, consider San Francisco electorates that put people like Nancy Pelosi and Diane Finestein in office. As a former Oakland Police Officer, people like that is why I moved out of the Bay Area, and I considering leaving California all together.
