Topeka, Kansas –-(Ammoland.com)- A 1905 court ruling from the Kansas Supreme Court took the interpretation of Section 4 of the Kansas Constitution to mean the Right to Keep and Bear Arms only exists as a collective right for those in the militia or military and “NO INDIVIDUAL RIGHT EXISTS.”

For that reason, the NRA has worked with the Kansas State Rifle Association, Senator Mike Petersen and the Legislature, to pass a Constitutional Amendment during the 2009 legislative session, which provides new language that clarifies Section 4 and GUARANTEES an individual Right to Keep and Bear Arms. The language reads:

“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.”

Our elected officials have done law-abiding Kansans a tremendous service by passing this landmark Constitutional Amendment.

Now it is up to YOU to do your part on November 2, 2010 and vote this provision into the Kansas Constitution.
