Kansas voters have amended the state
constitution to clarify the individual right to own firearms.
The proposed amendment provoked little controversy and had
bipartisan support before its overwhelming approval Tuesday.
Before the change, the Kansas Constitution said: "The people
have the right to bear arms for their defense and security."
With Tuesday's vote, that section now states: "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."
