Wisconsin –-( This past spring, many of you may have heard of, or viewed news reports pertaining to Milwaukee County Sheriff David Clarke’s public service announcements that made national news.

Sheriff Clarke has, in the past, gone to radio advertising to make public service announcements about drunk driving, distracted driving and other issues.

With this most recent public service ad campaign the Sheriff took on the important topic of self-defense. You can hear his public service announcement that went “viral” here:

In what can only be taken as discrimination against the 2nd amendment and the right to self-defense, the Milwaukee County Board of Supervisors has introduced, and passed out of committee, an ordinance that would prohibit Sheriff Clarke from appearing in any future public service announcements.

Milwaukee County Supervisor Deanna Alexander from the 18th district even issued a press release exposing they hypocrisy of the rest of the board:

It is notable that the Board of Supervisors never felt compelled to silence Sheriff Clarke when, in the interest of public safety, he made radio advertisements about drunk-driving or distracted driving. Now that he dared speak in support of our right to self-defense, he has come under attack and some on the County Board are trying to silence him.

Today we ask that you take the time to stand for Sheriff Clarke, who had the courage to take the message of self-defense and personal protection to the airwaves knowing he would face attack from the anti-gun media and anti-gun politicians.

Whether or not you are a Milwaukee County resident, PLEASE take this opportunity to make contact with as many of the Milwaukee County Board members as you can and express your SUPPORT for Sheriff Clarke. Ask the Milwaukee County Board Supervisors to REJECT the resolution that would prohibit Sheriff Clarke from appearing in public service announcements.

The following link will take you to the Milwaukee County Board of Supervisors home page where you can access each supervisors email and phone numbers.

The resolution to silence Sheriff David Clarke was passed on a close 4 – 3 vote last Thursday. THE FULL COUNTY BOARD will vote on the resolution THIS THURSDAY June 20th. Please, use the link above to contact Milwaukee County Supervisors.

Please also share this message with friends and family who support the 2nd amendment and the right to self-defense.

If you participate on any gun-rights/2nd amendment related facebook groups and/or internet forums, please share this message there as well. We have 3 days to overwhelm the Milwaukee County board with contact from “we the people” and let them know that we support Sheriff Clarke for being willing to advocate for self-defense on the local radio-waves.

Carry On,

Wisconsin Carry, Inc. is a non-profit corporation dedicated to the preservation and reclamation of the rights of law-abiding Wisconsin residents to carry in the manner of their choosing. We believe that “open carry” and “concealed carry” are choices to be made by law-abiding citizens based on their situation and preference. Wisconsin Carry, like many gun-rights organizations in Wisconsin, is investing a great deal of resources to get Wisconsin law changed to allow concealed carry this next legislative session by proposing Constitutional Carry. Wisconsin Carry, Inc. will continue to use legal recourse to deter unlawful treatment of law-abiding Wisconsin residents who currently exercise their right to open carry, and soon will exercise their right to concealed carry in Wisconsin.

Leaving your safety and personal protection solely up to someone else is one of the dumbest things you can do as a human being.

You are your own first line of defense. The average crime takes 2 minutes 30 seconds. The average response time of the police is 5 minutes. The criminals are long gone before the police arrive. In a domestic violence/murder the police took 45 minutes to respond to our home. So much for Berkeley County South Carolina good old boys. Earlier that morning they let the perpetrator, Joey Snowden drive away intoxicated after beating his wife he returned at 9am with his fathers shotgun and murdered his wife in our home. We did not own a gun at the time. Our… Read more »

Dear All,
For all that I am not an American, but Scots/British, I support Sheriff Clarke in his action. The criminals who use guns to carry out their heinous activities, do not consider the “political correctness” sick mentality of politicians. These political items I tend to look upon as the detritus of molecular evolution – one of natures’ errors. We all have the irrefutable right to protect ourselves and our loved ones, and that right shall not be cancelled by the above detritus who have voted against Sheriff Clarke.

As at Yorktown, Sheriff Clarke, STAND YOUR GROUND.

Keep up the Fight..being Right is your Might! Your deeds are becoming legendary, & rightly so….When you’re done in Dairyland, come down here to Lincoln land and help us Good Guys clean House….it’s Filthy!!

God Bless you & your/our mission. Ken

Maybe the board of supervisors can also remain silent if they feel the need to call 911 because they didn’t bother to arm themselves.


He should put out another public service announcement and let them settle it in court.


Butbutbut…. Sheriff Clarke is an AFRICAN-AMERICAN!

The County Board is RACIST!!!

Surely, the elevated opinion of an esteemed member of our underprivileged, disenfranchised class MUST be considered GOSPEL!

I mean, don’t you get it? He’s BLACK!!!

Y’all are a bunch o’ racists.


Is this Sheriff subject to a county board? That would be the only sheriff I know who is so placed. All the rest are answerable only to the people who elect them.


That ordinance is not enforceable. And any officer of the law that tries is a traitor just like the people trying to pass it. Those people should lose their jobs. Wake up America the beast is upon you. Look around at what’s going on in this country. Its crazy time. The liberals and progressives are doing everything they can to help Obama destroy this country. If your not part of the fix then your part of the problem.


Let them pass it, then arrest the board members for violation of civil rights and a hate crime.


Sheriff Clark is a man of honesty and honor. What he is stating is the truth…learn to protect yourself and your family like we have for hundreds of years. Depend on yourself first and rely on the local 911 call as backup. We need more people like him In all walks of local, state, and federal politics. We need him, and I stand with Sheriff Clark!!

Thank you Sheriff Clarke. We have the right to protect our self and the people we care about! Anyone that tries to pass a ordinance to deny your free speech is stupid.


Thanks Sheriff Clake for your stand for us

Dear Sheriff…if you violate our “ordinance” that violates your right to free speech, please arrest yourself. JERKS. What kind of morons make up these councils…oh that’s right. Psychopathic elitist types.
