Breitbart published an exclusive interview with Sheriff David Clarke of Milwaukee County, Wisconsin. Sheriff Clarke is an outspoken critic of President Barack Obama, the so-called black lives matter movement — liberals in general — gun control, and other people and policies that threaten our liberty and safety.
The president recently spoke at an International Association of Chiefs of Police (IACP) conference. The IACP has partnered with the National Law Enforcement Partnership to Prevent Gun Violence to push gun control, something near and dear to the president’s heart. He apparently wants a defenseless populace who must rely on the government for safety, while only criminals and cops have the guns.
The problem for gun grabbers is the right to keep and bear arms is a constitutionally protected right.
“I was extremely disappointed when I heard that my fellow law enforcement executive colleagues had gotten into bed with Obama and his gun confiscation mission,” Sheriff Clarke told Breitbart. “That’s really what it’s about. It’s not about reducing violence, it’s not about reducing mass murder or suicides. The real intent of Obama and these gun groups is gun confiscation and they know they are going to have to do it step by step. They’re not going to be able to go after that today, as there would be fierce blowback. So they are doing it in stealth ways and this IACP meeting is one of those ways.”
The sheriff added that gun-grabbing, soft-on-crime mayors control law enforcement in their cities.
“[T]hey have to sing from the same sheet of music that their mayors are singing from. But the crime and violence we see in our cities and counties is not the result of a lack of background checks, and these chiefs know that. The research and data are there. Criminals don’t care about laws in general and they don’t care about gun laws or gun restrictions. They will find a way to get around those. And that’s why I ultimately say that the chiefs’ push for more gun control has nothing to do with reducing violence. Rather, it has to do with gun confiscation.”
Sheriff Clarke warned that President Obama will continue to push gun control in his final year in office. And liberals won’t stop. With future Democrats in the White House, confiscation might become a reality.
It’s unthinkable that the so-called rights to kill unborn babies and for homosexuals to call themselves married might be better protected than our Second Amendment right. But if liberals have their way…
