Landslide victory - Missouri Constitutional Right to Bear Arms Expanded :: 08/06/2014
On Tuesday, voters in the Show Me State appeared at the polls and when the smoke cleared, 66 percent approved a ballot measure obligating Missouri to defend the right to keep and bear arms.
The measure, Constitutional Amendment 5, was the result of a Senate resolution that had passed the state legislature by large margin earlier this year.
The question it put to voters read: "Shall the Missouri Constitution be amended to include a declaration that the right to keep and bear arms is an unalienable right and that the state government is obligated to uphold that right?"
While Missourians' right to keep and bear arms, as in the rest of the country, is nominally covered under the Second Amendment of the U.S. Constitution, a "Yes" vote would in theory give state lawmakers a mandate to protect gun rights from future perceived encroachments.
"It makes it an inalienable right, so it is a right that cannot be taken away from you without changing the constitution back," state Rep. Charlie Davis, (R-District 128) told KOAM TV earlier this week. "We do have the right to keep and bear arms, for hunting purposes and also for home and self-defense, but it's just a further protection."
Late Tuesday, with 97 percent of the precincts reporting, Amendment 5 had racked up 490,565 in favor of the measure. Just a third of voters, at 249,755 cast "No" to the amendment.
