Milwaukee County Sheriff David Clarke to Citizens: Arm Yourselves

According to the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel, Milwaukee County Sheriff David Clarke has aired a radio spot urging Milwaukeeans to arm themselves:
You could beg for mercy from a violent criminal, hide under the bed, or you can fight back."

Clarke urges listeners to take a firearm safety course and handle a firearm "so you can defend yourself until we get there."

"You have a duty to protect yourself and your family.
Predictably enough, commenters are derisive: "Sheriff Clarke is a psycho...Moronic... insecure...irresponsible ...totally reprehensible and irresponsible...pile of cow dung...."

To which I could not help replying: "I hope that decent, thoughtful people can at least agree that it is better to be raped, and strangled with your own panty hose rather than run any risks."

UPDATED version here, with a new set of comments.
