An amendment to the Kansas Constitution that was drafted to declare a person’s right to own guns for any lawful purpose was approved overwhelming by voters in Tuesday’s election. The Kansas Constitution will now read, “A person has the right to keep and bear arms for the defense of self, family, home and state, for lawful hunting and recreational use, and for any other lawful purpose.”
Sad that states have to specifically state their constitutions like this, but I’m glad that Kansas did so. I’d have thought that Article IV of the Bill of Rights sealed that deal, but apparently not based on how our government works.
Bill of Rights
“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.”
