It Is A Constitution We Are Amending

Retired Supreme Court Justice John Paul Stevens has recently published a book advocating for six amendments to the Constitution.  Read an excerpt at ABC News.  Perhaps the most controversial of these is his suggest addition to the Second Amendment; Justice Stevens proposes recognizing a right to bear arms “when serving in the Militia.”  On this topic, see the excerpt at the Washington Post

Justice Stevens is not alone in suggesting constitutional changes of late.  According to the ABA Journal, Justice Ginsberg would add the Equal Rights Amendment, and Justice Scalia would make the amendment process easier.

How would you change this founding document?
