Milwaukee County sheriff: Don’t wait for the police; arm yourselves

We have been saying this for years and it’s becoming more true every day. You have to rely on yourself for protection. The Police are increasingly unable to help you. At least the Sheriff in Milwaukee seems to care enough about his citizens to tell them straight.

“I’m Sheriff David Clarke and I want to talk to you about something personal: your safety. It’s no longer a spectator sport; I need you in the game. But are you ready? With officers laid off and furloughed, simply calling 911 and waiting is no longer your best option. You can beg for mercy from a violent criminal, hide under the bed, or you can fight back. But are you prepared? Consider taking a certified safety course in handling a firearm so you can defend yourself until we get there. You have a duty to protect yourself and your family.”
These honest words from a man who knows the score you tell you something if you don’t already know it. You have to be prepared to defend yourself.
