Senator David Bullard (R-Durant) has finally written the proposed state question to end the bickering and posturing of our legislature, regarding 2nd amendment rights to keep & bear arms.
The amendment resolution needs the majority support of both houses of the legislature, but not a governor's enactment.
The governor, however; has discretion about when the proposed state constitutional amendment would be voted upon by the people.
This language imposes upon all state agencies and law enforcement that they have a duty to protect this individual right against any form of infringement.
Stipulations are made to exclude those convicted of felonies, domestic violence, and those adjudicated as incompetent or involuntarily committed for mental impairment.
The language expressly defines arms as including the ammunition and the firearms. It also expands the definition of constitutional self defense 'arms' to include nonlethal and other arms.
Ask your legislators if they are willing to cosponsor this resolution. So far no one has.
