Sheriff Responds to Attacks Over “Second Revolution” Comments
“The American people will decide when to push back, not me.”
Feb 21, 2013
Milwaukee County Sheriff David A. Clarke Jr. has defended his comments on The Alex Jones Show earlier this week under criticism from local reporters who said his remarks that strict gun legislation could lead to a “second American Revolution” were inflammatory.
Clarke told Jones’ listeners that he would consider any federal order to confiscate guns as “an act of tyranny,” and said that he would refuse to enforce it in his county.
“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.” the Sheriff urged.
That comment did not sit well with hacks at the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel who accused Clarke of engaging in “attention-grabbing media appearances” on a “conspiracy-peddling radio show.”
