One law enforcement officer is not only protecting citizens from criminals, he is also standing up for our constitutional rights.
Sheriff David A. Clarke Jr. from Milwaukee County received a standing ovation at the 2014 National Rifle Association convention when he said the seven words that he would add to the Second Amendment: “Keep your hands off our guns, dammit.”

His statement was in response to the retired associate justice of the Supreme Court, John Paul Stevens, saying he would change the Second Amendment to say: “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.”
While on Fox and Friends Sheriff Clarke called Stevens’ recommendation “political hijinks.”
Clarke 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.”
