Blue Force Gear Quote of the Day: Sheriff Clarke Has The Last Word on “Gun Free Zones” Quote of the Day by Robert Farago | May 24, 2016 | 35 comments facebook twitter linkedin email “The only person that is safe in a gun-free zone is the criminal.” – Sheriff David Clarke [via mediamatters.com] comments Some Body says: May 24, 2016 at 08:08 Well, it doesn’t get any simpler than that! Reply RockOnHellChild says: May 24, 2016 at 08:12 I love this guy – no homo. Not that there is anything wrong with that. Reply NYC2AZ says: May 24, 2016 at 10:04 +1 Costanza Reply Kevin says: May 24, 2016 at 12:00 I love Sheriff Clark too! He also has a weekly podcast/SoundCloud show that is like a Monday night action flick show that replaced 24. One can only wish he’s appointed for the Top Cop Attorney General under Trump Empire. Reply Mark N. says: May 24, 2016 at 14:39 The “top cop” heads the FBI. The top attorney heads the AG, since it is, after all, a prosecutors office. Reply WestCoast says: May 24, 2016 at 15:57 The FBI Director reports to the AG and the AG is known as america’s top Law Enforcement Officer. Mr. 308 says: May 24, 2016 at 08:14 “We have plenty of gun laws in this country, alright, but we don’t enforce those gun laws. What I mean by we, is we can’t — we in law enforcement — can’t get criminal prosecutions when we bring these things forth. So if we want to reduce crime in America, if we want to reduce violence, if we want to put kids in a safer environment, then what we have to do is attack the criminal element, not law-abiding gun owners.” So the proggies want to take guns away from people who respect the law and other peoples rights, and yet they refuse to lock away people who break the law and commit violence. It’s not just about second amendment rights, it’s literally about your safety, and the safety of your families and neighbors. Why do we see everyday on the news that some new violent act occurred and the person responsible ends up with a criminal record including multiple violent felonies and yet is allowed back out on the street to terrorize our cities? It makes you think they want this violence to occur, for people to get hurt and killed. And all we hear from the politicians is ‘take more guns out of the hands of people who have committed no crimes’. Are they really trying to make cities more violent, because it’s hard to believe this is the case. But if you look at what the state is doing in the macro view, what other conclusion can be drawn?

Those are called democratic voters. They can’t vote in prison. Reply FormerWaterWalker says: May 24, 2016 at 10:02 You do understand good sheriff Clarke ran as a Democrat don’t you? There’s even a few south of Chicago. Very few…anywho good for him. He gets it. Reply Mr. 308 says: May 24, 2016 at 10:37 Heh heh. I’m a Democrat. Of course that’s only because around the end of 2012 I wanted to get out of the Republican party and I figured why not, what difference does it make? Bob315 says: May 24, 2016 at 08:44 If a person pays attention, the end goal of the Progressives is very clear. An armed populace will not allow the Progressives to achieve their political goals of a tyrannical government, so the Progressives need to disarm the people. Reply Right to Arm Bears says: May 24, 2016 at 08:19 Truth in simplicity, spoken by an agent of the government. How rare and refreshing! Reply NJ2AZ says: May 24, 2016 at 09:14 in this instance i would refreshingly call him an agent of the people! Reply Scott in IA says: May 24, 2016 at 10:05 Typically, a sheriff is an agent of the people … elected by the people. Unlike police chiefs, who are appointed. Reply Binder says: May 24, 2016 at 08:44 The truth is America has higher crime problems are due to the limits set on the goverment by the bill of rights. The upside is that chances of the government oppressing the people are much lower than other places in the world. It is a question of safety vs freedom, and giving up freedom is no guarantee of safety. We could end drug abuse real quick, mandatory drug testing for all. Anyone for that? Reply Anonymous says: May 24, 2016 at 08:45 Hildabeast wants to make the entire United States a gun free zone (except for the secret service of course). Reply SteveInCO says: May 24, 2016 at 08:53 You forgot the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, Explosives, Counterfeiting, Espionage and Socialism (BATFECES). They’d be armed too. Reply SteveInCO says: May 24, 2016 at 08:51 Dammit, Robert, you did NOT provide a trigger warning about Hillary being in that video. Reply Ovidio Gentiloni says: May 24, 2016 at 08:51 Well said! Reply SteveInCO says: May 24, 2016 at 08:58 This man has criticized the policies that created inner city neighborhoods. He must be raaaaacist. Oh, wait… Reply LHW says: May 24, 2016 at 08:58 Great, now how will the liberals criticize Sheriff Clark? Reply SteveInCO says: May 24, 2016 at 09:07 They’ll call him “Uncle Tom.” There’ve been quite a few blacks too intelligent to swallow the shit the left has shoveled at them (e.g., Thomas Sowell and Walter Williams) so they’ve already had to write something in their playbook to deal with it when it happens. Reply travisp says: May 24, 2016 at 09:30 They did the same with Colion Noir calling him an Uncle Tom and that he was owned by the NRA as if he hasn’t been making pro gun videos before he was hired by the NRA Reply Wiregrass says: May 24, 2016 at 09:36 You expect them to actually do research? And research that doesn’t fit the narrative at that? SteveInCO says: May 24, 2016 at 10:16 @travisp, I knew I was forgetting about someone. Thanks for reminding me re: Mr. Noir. Rusty Chains says: May 24, 2016 at 09:25 Love the quote, hate the fact that “Media Matters” got the view since they are owned by the dummycrat bunch and essentially part of Clinton for prez. You did warn about the source, but I missed noticing (my fault). Reply Chris T from KY says: May 24, 2016 at 10:03 A law abiding black man with a gun is scary. A black sheriff telling everyone to get a gun to help him keep the peace is the most frightening thing to a white progressive. It is the freedom of the Internet that gets this message past the white liberal gate keepers. The first amendment is a threat to the liberals. Reply SteveInCO says: May 24, 2016 at 10:18 Hence now the recent push for making “hate speech” a thing…as well as safe spaces and the like, now visible at a college campus near you. By coincidence (well, no, not a coincidence) the same agenda as is being pushed in the name of Islam. Reply Chris T from KY says: May 25, 2016 at 19:38 As a black teenager in the 1970s I watched progressive white people support free speech. They were very proud to support KKK rallies. They supported armed Klansmen marching through black neighborhoods but they were and still are against blacks having guns. They even supported cross burning on private black property. The white progressive support only the free speech they agree with. Reply tdiinva (now in Wisconsin} says: May 24, 2016 at 10:45 Note that Hillary was addressing the “Trayvon Martin” Memorial Foundation. She is signaling that she supports inner city gangs. There is a lot rhetoric here about Progressives “government agents” to repress the population. This is a gross misunderstanding of how totalitarians operate. Even in Stalinist Russia and Nazi Germany the police were there to keep the civil peace and order. Their role is no different than in an open society. Totalitarians create a parallel security apparatus to establish social control. These are the people carry out the repression. The Democratic Party has outsourced the role of maintaining social control to criminal gangs. Another property of totalitarian government is to insulate the agents responsible for social control from civil authorities. That is why they support BLM. BLM is a gang front established to prevent you and the civil police from interfering in gang activities. In theory if the Party can make it impossible for you to exercise the right of self-defense when attacked by gang members and gansta wannabes like Michael Brown and Trayvon Martin. They don’t even have to confiscate guns to establish that control. The Democrats want you to believe that the civil police are the threat to your rights because it diverts you from what they are really doing. Many of the armed intelligentsia are unwitting allies of the Party because they support efforts to restrict the police from operating against criminal gangs. Reply Andrew Lewis says: May 24, 2016 at 17:26 Wow that is disturbing. Reply Specialist38 says: May 24, 2016 at 10:49 Wow! That was refreshing. Can we clone this guy? Reply HP says: May 24, 2016 at 11:12 I’m thinking there should be a spot somewhere in Trump’s cabinet or maybe at the head of a federal law enforcement agency that the good sheriff could be recruited for. This guy is regularly spot-on and I like the cut of his jib. Reply Geoff PR says: May 24, 2016 at 22:13 “Can we clone this guy?” H’mm. “Sheriff Clark – THX-1138” or “”Sheriff Clark – ED-209”? Reply Andrew Lewis says: May 25, 2016 at 02:53 THX-1138 please. We want Sheriff Clarke to maintain his humanity not become a mindless automaton for our cause.
