What Would You Add to the Bill of Rights?

Apparently I’m not the only person doing this thought-experiment — http://www.theatlantic.com/politics/archive/2013/04/what-would-you-add-to-the-bill-of-rights/275250/.  Privacy seems to be on everybody’s mind.  I’d like something saying “No citizen or resident of the United States shall ever be required to testify under oath in any proceeding whatever about sex between consenting adults.”  Take that, Ken Starr!  And the Second Amendment should be revised to include precisely what its Framers originally intended—the right of citizens to keep and bear smooth bore muskets and flintlocks.  And how about “the right of citizens and residents of the United States to travel within and among the several states shall not be infringed”?
