Missouri amends its guarantee of the right to arms

Yesterday it passed by a popular vote of 61%-39%. Pretty extensive changes. The right as guaranteed extends to ammunition and accessories (no magazine bans). Any restrictions are reviewed under strict scrutiny. The State must defend these rights and may not decline to do so (which will put the Attorney General in an interesting position if any future legislature enacts a gun restriction.

Language that said the guarantee will not affect the ability of the legislature to restrict the carrying of concealed arms is replaced by language saying it will not restrict the ability of the legislature to restrict convicted felons or those found mentally infirm by a court.

FK – Read the comments. I haven’t read the law so can’t say how ‘great’ this is…
