A measure placing the issue on the 2010 general election ballot
cleared the Senate by a 39-1 vote Tuesday. A similar resolution is
awaiting action in the House.
It's a response to a 2008 U.S. Supreme Court decision that says
the federal Constitution's Second Amendment grants individuals the
right to bear arms.
The Kansas Constitution says: ``The people have the right to
bear arms for their defense and security.''
But a 1905 Kansas Supreme Court decision says it's a collective,
not an individual, right. The proposed amendment would give the
right to each person.
