Default Sheriff David Clarke: 'Being Scared Is Not Enough,' Get a Gun to 'Fight Back'

Responding to trepidation caused by the Burlington, WA, mass shooting; the violent protests in Charlotte, NC; the Minnesota mall stabbings; and other high-profile attacks, Milwaukee County Sheriff David Clarke said, "Being scared is not enough." Rather, Americans need to have guns with which they are ready to defend themselves.

Speaking live to Fox News' Neil Cavuto on September 24, Clarke stated:

This is the world we live in now, [and Americans] are scared, but being scared is not enough. I say, you can hide under the bed, you can do all this other stuff, but you can fight back. And the more these individuals, these perpetrators, realize that somebody is going to quickly be able to counter their nonsense, I think you'll see less [of these attacks]. If nothing else, you'll be able to play a role in saving your own life.

Clarke said that as things now stand, attackers pick soft targets and "know that they'll be able to shed a lot of blood before the situation is stopped." ....... Sheriff David Clarke: 'Being Scared Is Not Enough,' Get a Gun

David Clarke is one of those sheriffs who realize the limitations of police protection and advocate personal gun ownership and carry. This makes total sense as "when seconds count", a police response can be too late to prevent disaster. It's a great pity there are not more within law enforcement and law making who "see the light" and understand the logic of the armed citizen.

"Scared" is not a tactic for survival OR living.
