Milwaukee County Sheriff David Clarke (D) argued that “President Obama and Mrs. Bill Clinton” “are anti-gun bigots” and Obama doesn’t want to go after the real perpetrators of violence, “the underclass young black male” on Wednesday’s “Hannity” on the Fox News Channel.
Clarke said, “as far as President Obama and Mrs. Bill Clinton, they are anti-gun bigots. They are utterly intolerant to anybody else’s view when it comes to — other than their own when it comes to the second amendment, shooting sports, and self-defense. But you watch, by next summer, she’ll be photographed walking around in a field like she’s hunting, participating in the shooting sports, with a gun resting on her shoulder, probably holding it upside down.”
He added, “if you want to reduce violence, and the president knows this, you target criminals. you do not law — otherwise law-abiding citizens. and you don’t make them have to go jump through hoops, in a higher threshold to exercise their second amendment right. But Sean, if he goes after the real perpetrators of violence in America, he would have to target the underclass young black male, and — who disproportionately is involved in all this violence, and he doesn’t want to do that.”
Clarke further stated, “I want as many law-abiding citizens to arm themselves in this country as we can get so that I have the partner that I need to beat back this sort of violence. And in these mass shooting situations, you’re right, the great equalizer is a law-abiding citizen in that situation, with a firearm, that can take action, because when seconds count, the police are usually minutes away.”
