Missouri: Gun Owners Prevail in Missouri Supreme Court – Amendment Stays on Primary Election Ballot on August 5

Saturday, July 19, 2014

As previously reported last month, former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg and his anti-gun followers made another attempt at hindering your right to keep and bear arms in Missouri.  In mid-June, a lawsuit was filed against Senate Joint Resolution 36 (Constitutional Amendment 5 on the August 5 primary election ballot) – with the plaintiff being St. Louis Police Chief Samuel Dotson III and Rebecca Morgan, a member of the Missouri chapter of a Bloomberg-funded anti-gun group.  This lawsuit sought to challenge the ballot language and had the express intention of outright killing this ballot measure.  If it were up to those who filed this lawsuit, your Second Amendment rights would not exist.

Yesterday, a decision by the Missouri Supreme Court dismissed this lawsuit – a small victory for law-abiding gun owners in the Show Me State.


So what does this mean? 

Constitutional Amendment 5, the Right to Keep and Bear Arms Amendment, WILL appear on the primary election ballot on August 5.


What can you do?

Encourage your family, friends and fellow gun owners to make their voices heard at the polls on August 5 and vote YES on Constitutional Amendment 5.

While hunters, sportsmen and gun owners can celebrate this victory, Michael Bloomberg and his hired, anti-gun advocates will continue to pour money into Missouri to defeat this measure.  Let Bloomberg know that he can’t buy your rights.
