It’s hard to know whether Milwaukee County sheriff David Clarke is seriously trying to get his citizens to arm themselves or just trying to call attention to cutbacks in his department, but his radio ad certainly has caused a stir in Wisconsin.

“Apparently, Sheriff David Clarke is auditioning for the next Dirty Harry movie,” Jodie Tabak, Mayor Tom Barrett’s spokeswoman, said.
An anti-gun group says Clarke is promoting vigilantism. A pro-gun group tells the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel, “Unless you can take care of yourself, you’re kind of SOL.”
