The race took on national tones just last week when Mr. Bloomberg — who helps head the Mayors Against Illegal Guns group and who has taken up a personal crusade to scale back Second Amendment rights — threw in $150,000 to defeat Sheriff Clarke. That amount was more than what Sheriff Clarke and his opponent, Chris Moews, spent on their entire campaigns, The Post reported.

I just love a little bit of good news on “Hump Day.” Don’t you? It’s inspiring to see the voice of the people resonate in spite of meddling from the likes of Michael Bloomberg. In his crusade to buy his way into Heaven by sending gun rights to Hell, Bloomberg was handed a full on defeat by the people of Milwaukee County, Wisconsin.
Chris W. Cox, Executive Director of the NRA Institute for Legislative Action issued this statement: “On behalf of the NRA’s five million members, we would like to congratulate Sheriff David A. Clarke on his hard fought victory in yesterday’s Primary election for Milwaukee County Sheriff. Sheriff Clarke’s outspoken commitment to the Second Amendment earned him the admiration of NRA members and gun owners nationwide. His dedication to freedom and the Constitution also earned him the wrath of gun control elitist Michael Bloomberg and his allies, who spent over half a million dollars (more money than both candidates in this race combined) trying to defeat Sheriff Clarke. But in the end, Bloomberg’s money could not buy the hearts and minds of the voters.”
“With officers laid off and furloughed, simply calling 9-1-1 and waiting is no longer your best option. You could beg for mercy from a violent criminal, hide under the bed or you could fight back. But are you prepared? Consider taking a certified safety course on handling a firearm so you can defend yourself until we get there. You have a duty to protect yourself and your family. We’re partners now. Can I count on you?” Sheriff David Clarke via NRA-ILA | The Sheriff Who Dared to Ask For Help.
If you’ve never heard of Sheriff David Clarke, you need to read this article over at the NRA’s ILA website. This man is the kind of sheriff we need in every county of every state. As sheriff, he has displayed far more intellectual honesty that just about any other elected official in the country.
“First of all, to me that would be an act of tyranny,” he said of the gun control measures currently under consideration. “So the people in Milwaukee County do not have to worry about me enforcing some sort of order that goes out and collects everybody’s handgun, or rifles, or any kind of firearm and makes them turn them in.”
“The reason is I don’t want to get shot, because I believe that if somebody tried to enforce something of that magnitude, you would see the second coming of an American revolution, the likes of which would make the first revolution pale by comparison,” he added.
