Milwaukee Sheriff David A. Clarke spoke at the NRA convention this weekend and called for a 7-word addition to the 2nd Amendment. His addition sounded like this:

A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed – Keep your hands off our guns, dammit.

His addition was in response to former Supreme Court Justice John Paul Stevens’ book “Six Amendments: How and Why We Should Change the Constitution,” in which Stevens called for a 5-word addition to the 2nd Amendment. Stevens’ addition was “the right of the people to keep and bear arms when serving in the militia shall not be infringed.”

In his speech, Clarke said, ““My reaction was, What! Just what part of ‘shall not be infringed’ does Justice Stevens not understand?”

Clarke became a well-known figure in the gun world when last year he took out a radio ad urging Milwaukee residents to learn how to properly use a firearm to defend themselves while waiting for the police to arrive.
