Milwaukee County Sheriff David A. Clarke Jr. was one of the featured speakers at the opening of the National Rifle Association’s annual convention in Indianapolis on Friday.

Clarke is an outspoken proponent of gun rights who has asked residents of his city to take firearms classes because personal safety is “no longer a spectator sport.”

In early 2013, Clarke launched a radio ad campaign encouraging citizens to learn to protect themselves:

Former Supreme Court Justice John Paul Stevens, in his recent book Six Amendments: How and Why We Should Change the Constitution, suggested that the Second Amendment be changed to read:

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 the militia shall not be infringed.

Clarke addressed this by saying:

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

He then went on to add the seven words HE would add to the Second Amendment:

“Keep your hands off our guns, dammit.”

Those words earned him a standing ovation.

Here is Clarke’s entire speech:

    I said this on another site, but here we go: “He should add ‘No Ex-Post Facto nor Bill of Attainder.” Oh, that’s right, it’s already in the Constitution, but they just waive it like it’s not important……We are facing not only misinterpretude, but a total disregard for the rule of law….Sometimes I think there may only be one solution, I hope I’m wrong. Please submit ideas if you have any. Only things I’ve come up with is starting our own “Conservation org” for land aquisition, and the “People’s RICO” so we can treat them as the Racketeers which they are. Then we could “Fundementally redistribute our resources back in ‘We the People’s’ hands where they belong.”

    …Such as the gun control act of 1968! How can a law passed by congress and signed by the president override a Constitutional Right? Why does this sheriff still enforce what is written in it?

    This guy is not indicative of the sheriffs across this nation but he should be. To many have sold out to the feds for the perks that come with selling out and kissing ass,not to mention the power trip for their gang members! All backed up by the criminal ,and I do mean criminal,court system they have protecting them. My hats of to this Sheriff for actually doing his job and reading the Constitution for what it really says.

    So by your formula, we should just continue down the same road? We need to take it back before its too late. I noticed you didn’t generate any ideas, only sought to destroy my opine…..Don’t be a tool for the Progs. You’re smarter than that. I can tell.
