Secretary of State Jason Kander announced Friday ballot measures on gun rights, police searches and the lottery have been certified for the august ballot. The proposals would each amend the Missouri Constitution if a majority of voters approve. One of the measures, Constitutional Amendment 5, would strengthen gun rights in Missouri. It would make the right to bear arms an “unalienable right” and make the state government “obligated to uphold that right”. A second measure, Constitutional Amendment 9, would add electronic communications and data to the list of information secure from unreasonable search and seizure. People, homes, papers and their effects are already protected. The last measure, Constitutional Amendment 8, proposes a slight shift in lottery ticket revenue to benefit projects and services related to veterans.
