in Missouri that is. The disease spreads further, lol.

Amendment 5 passes: Right to bear arms 'unalienable' - Columbia Missourian

From the NRA;

Missourians Approve Measure Strengthening Right to Keep and Bear Arms

Bloomberg Fails to Defeat 'Gold Standard' for Gun Rights Amendment

By an overwhelming margin of 61 to 39 percent, Missouri voters have adopted an amendment backed by the National Rifle Association (NRA) to their state constitution strengthening the Right to Keep and Bear Arms. Senate Joint Resolution 36 declares that right to be "unalienable" and require any gun-control restrictions to be subject to the highest legal scrutiny.

A Missouri-based anti-gun group funded by Mike Bloomberg failed to kill the ballot measure before it ever reached voters and also failed to defeat the measure.

"The people of Missouri have sent a clear, strong message that they will not allow anti-gun activists to trample on their Right to Keep and Bear Arms." said Chris W. Cox, executive director of the NRA's Institute for Legislative Action. "This amendment is the gold standard for the protection of the individual right to Keep and Bear Arms. In the face of unprecedented threats from billionaire Michael Bloomberg and his network of anti-gun groups across the country, Americans are fighting back to protect their rights. I applaud the people of Missouri and call on all Americans to support similar efforts in their states. On behalf of the NRA's five million members, I thank the ballot's sponsors, Senator Kurt Schaefer, Majority Leader Ron Richard, Speaker-elect John Diehl and members of the Missouri General Assembly who supported this measure. Across the country, gun rights supporters are taking note of their leadership on this critical issue," added Cox.

To find the origins of the word unalienable, we can look at the root, alien, which comes from the Latin alienus, meaning "of or belonging to another." This provides the basis for our word, with the prefix un- providing the turnaround "not," and the suffix -able providing the idea of capability. Therefore, we get "not able to be denied." Oh, and if you are wondering about the common argument as to whether it is "unalienable" or "inalienable," either is correct.

Boone County Prosecuting Attorney Dan Knight said the amendment was "completely unnecessary."

Although not included in the ballot language, the amendment also does two key things besides making the right to bear arms unalienable. The amendment adds ammunition and accessories as protected under the law, and it also removes a clause that says the law doesn't justify the wearing of concealed weapons.

What the anti's can't seem to grasp is so simple; if they would stop screwing around with guaranteed rights, pro-constitution groups would not have to come up with these types of laws.

Leave our rights, all of them, alone. If there is a problem, go after the problem. Reminder, guns ARE NOT the problem. Scumbags and criminals are the issue that need to be dealt with!

And, ironically- if they did stop trying to subvert he Constitution and "fundamentally" change this Republic they would probably gain popularity with some who vote straight R now just to keep them out of office...

It's states like this that are starting to return this country to where it needs to be, a place for the people, all the people not just the rich, to live and prosper in. Our rights are clearly stated in our Constitution and are easy to understand, after all they are in english are they not?
