On August 5th, Amendment 5, the so called “Right to Bear Arms” amendment will be on the ballot. I am opposed to this measure because it is completely unnecessary to ensure the right of law abiding citizens to possess firearms, and if it passes, safety of citizens in Boone County and across Missouri will be severely jeopardized.
