The Second Reigns Supreme In Missouri

posted on July 3, 2015

Last August, Missouri voters went to the polls and made a stand for their Second Amendment freedoms. They overwhelmingly passed Constitutional Amendment 5, which enables Missourians to own, carry and use a firearm for self-defense or sporting purposes without fear of political overreach. The voters made their voice heard. 

But Michael Bloomberg went tone-deaf and tuned out the defeat. He then responded in the only way he knows how—with cold cash. He funded a lawsuit that challenged the ballot as “insufficient.” St. Louis Police Chief Sam Dotson and Moms Demand Action organizer Rebecca Morgan tried to convince the court that the voters who supported the amendment last August were misled by a ballot summary that failed to properly explain the amendment. 

But this week the Missouri Supreme Court disagreed, upholding the election results as valid. We can only presume that Bloomberg had his hands over his ears for the verdict.
