MILWAUKEE - Milwaukee County Sheriff David Clarke joined Wisconsin Tonight to defend his controversial public service announcement.

In the commercial, he urges citizens to carry guns, saying it's our responsibility to protect ourselves.

The PSA led to interviews on major TV networks and heated responses from Mayor Tom Barrett, County Executive Chris Abele and Police Chief Edward Flynn, among others.
