Sheriff's 7 Words to Change the Second Amendment: "Keep Your Hands Off Our Guns, Dammit"
One law enforcement officer is not only protecting citizens from criminals, he’s standing up for our constitutional rights. Milwaukee County Sheriff David A. Clarke, Jr. received a standing ovation at the 2014 National Rifle Association convention when he stated the seven words he would add to the Second Amendment: “Keep your hands off our guns, dammit.”
That was in response to John Paul Stevens, retired associate justice of the Supreme Court, saying he would change the Second Amendment to: “A well-regulated militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear arms when serving in a militia shall not be infringed.”
This morning on Fox and Friends, Clarke called Stevens’ recommendation “political hijinks.”
Clarke, a Democrat, said the issue of public safety is bipartisan. After the local government in Milwaukee County cut the police department budget, the sheriff took it upon himself to tell law-abiding citizens that they needed to protect themselves with concealed weapons.
“Survival is the first law of nature and the right of self-defense is a natural right," Clarke said. "I think that most people across America would agree it transcends partisanship. There’s nothing Democrat or Republican about one’s safety.”
