Defending freedom is a fight that has no end.
At the NRA Leadership Forum on Friday, April 25, Wisconsin Sheriff David A. Clarke Jr. shared his viewpoint on gun control. In the video below, Sheriff Clarke speaks about how our Second Amendment rights are under siege and urges us to not be silent nor afraid to defend our constitutional rights.
So what is the plan?
1. Defending freedom is a fight that has no end. You must be willing to resist any attempt by the government to disarm law abiding citizens.
3. Support elected officials who demonstrate a willingness to resist any and all legislation that scales back our second amendment rights.
Our Second Amendment states, “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.”
Retired Supreme Court Justice, John Paul Stevens, in his recent book, Six Amendments: How and Why We Should Change the Constitution, states that the U.S. Constitution could be improved upon by adding a few words here and there. He states that in time, by adding these 5 words to our Second Amendment, it would bring about change that would be consistent with what the framers intended in the first place, “when serving in the militia.”
So Justice Stevens is suggesting this rewrite of our Second Amendment: “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.”
Sheriff Clark justifiably asks, “just what part of ‘shall not be infringed’ does Justice Stevens not understand?”
Sheriff Clark states that he would add 7 words to the amendment to end any further confusion by activist judges. “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!”
Sheriff Clarke also states, “the armed citizen made America free, and the armed citizen will keep America free.” “The law abiding armed citizen is the great equalizer.”
Guns in the hands of law abiding citizens saves peoples lives.

Had it been illegal to use a gun to defend themselves, innocent people would have been abused or died as law enforcement wouldn’t have been notified in enough time to stop the crimes.
