Defense of Family

Sponsor: Sen. Kurt Schaefer, District 19

This proposed constitutional amendment, if approved by voters, modifies provisions regarding the right to keep and bear arms. This amendment provides that a citizen has the right to keep and bear arms, ammunition, and accessories typical to the normal function of such arms, in defense of their family, in addition to the current rights in defense of home, person and property. The amendment provides that the rights guaranteed under this provision of the Constitution are unalienable. Any restriction on these rights shall be subject to strict scrutiny. The State of Missouri is obligated to uphold these rights and shall under no circumstances decline to protect against their infringement.

The Missouri Alliance for Freedom supports this resolution because it protects citizen's constitutional right to bear arms. This promotes our principle belief in individual liberty.

This bill passed both chambers of the General Assembly and will be on the ballot for the voters to decide.
