I posted a video of Milwaukee Police Chief Edward Flynn carrying the water for gun control groups a few days ago, and, as I said then, he is a political mouthpiece, nothing more. Now Milwaukee Sheriff David Clarke has submitted a letter to Senator Lindsey Graham (R-SC) accusing Flynn of being a ”mouthpiece for the Mayors Against Guns group.” I love being right
In his letter, Clarke criticized the way Flynn “shamefully” interrupted Graham when the Senator was making points or asking questions with which Flynn disagreed. Clarke also described Flynn as a man who holds an appointed position and therefore doesn’t have to answer to “a constituency of his own.”
Because of this, Clarke said Flynn is nothing more than a “mouthpiece for the Mayors Against Group that has made no secret of their desire to obliterate the Second Amendment.”
Added Clarke: “[Flynn's] viewpoint does not represent either my view on gun control nor countless other law-abiding citizens and gun owners in Milwaukee County.”
Flynn, and other “police officials” siding with radical groups like Mayors Against Guns are just yes men, seeking political favor. Liberals use them to show how law enforcement “support”s gun control. Never forget that fact.
I just love folks who cut the BS and speak the unvarnished truth, it drives the Left batty!
A duty to protect yourself? Absolutely! And of course, the bed-wetting quickly followed
The spot has quickly earned criticism, including from the Milwaukee Deputy Sheriffs’ Association and Milwaukee Mayor Tom Barrett.
Milwaukee Deputy Sheriffs’ Association president Roy Felber told the Associated Press it sounds like a call to vigilantism, while Barrett’s spokeswoman said it sounded like Clarke was “auditioning for the next Dirty Harry movie.”
No, he sounds like a man who is not afraid of common sense. And like a man who trusts the PEOPLE to responsibly exercise their God-given rights! Like I said we could use a lot sheriffs like him, and surely a lot more politicians like him,
One of July’s featured blogs, Troglopundit, has a story out of Wisconsin that will make you want to throw your hands up.
In Racine, Wisconsin (my original home town), the local firefighters’ union is turning its back on a July 4th float honoring 9/11 firefighters because the firefighter behind the float doesn’t support the union’s politics.

Firefighters union throws cold water on 9-11 float
These days, almost anything can get caught in the blender of Wisconsin’s union politics.
It can even happen to a Fourth of July parade float honoring firefighters and cops killed on Sept. 11, 2001.
…The same float – a re-enactment of the famous photo of three firefighters raising the American flag amid the rubble of the World Trade Center – created a rush of emotions as it passed through three parade routes in Milwaukee County back in 2002. Crowds spontaneously rose to their feet, offering thunderous applause.
With the 10th anniversary of the Sept. 11 attacks coming up later this year, (Milwaukee-area fire lieutenant Matt) Gorniak and his church’s youth group decided to revive the floatin Racine’s upcoming Independence Day parade, one of the biggest in the area.
Unexpectedly, the request set off a debate among the leaders of the Racine firefighters union.
The problem: Gorniak had recently invoked a little-used provision in his union
