Wednesday on Fox News Channel’s Hannity, outspoken Wisconsin lawman David Clarke added his voice to the din of criticism surrounding the Obama administration’s gun control agenda.
Host Sean Hannity began the segment by declaring President Obama has become the “best advocate for gun sales in America,” and if Democrat presidential front-runner Hillary Clinton chooses to “wrap her arms around illegal, unconstitutional executive action on this, I think it hurts her in the campaign.”
The remark prompted Clarke to launch into a tirade against what he described as an ineffective and misplaced response to gun violence. “As far as President Obama and Mrs. Bill Clinton, they are anti-gun bigots,” Clarke said. “They are utterly intolerant to anybody else’s view … other than their own when it comes to the Second Amendment, shooting sports and self-defense.”

Regarding Obama’s stance on the issue, Clarke concluded the president is knowingly misrepresenting the root cause of gun-related crime.
“If you want to reduce violence, and the president knows this, you target criminals,” Clarke said. “You do not target … otherwise law-abiding citizens.”
To take an effective position on guns, however, would be detrimental to his agenda within the black community, the sheriff suggested.
“If he goes after the real perpetrators of violence in America, he would have to target the underclass young, black male, who disproportionately is involved in all this violence – and he doesn’t want to do that,” Clarke said.
