Tthe Mayor and Mr. Morgan are only concerned about the citizens that live IN Milwaukee and not about the large number of people in surrounding towns and countryside in Milwaukee County. IF the mayor was right (and he wasn't) about furlough impact, that does NOT change the fact that law abiding citizens have a right to defend their family in their OWN home. Mr. Barrett wants to disarm and weaken his constituents, trusting in the cops to take care of all the violence.
The FIRST thing I learned in my CHL class, taught by a POLICE SERGEANT, is that police cannot prevent a violent crime. They are there to STOP violence (when they finally arrive) and to investigate. Faith outside those two actions is misplaced. The Sheriff is exactly right!
