Hunting amendment wins approval in Kentucky
Kentucky voters approved a measure making hunting and fishing a constitutional right in the state. The amendment was projected to pass even with only 14% of precincts reporting.
The amendment had received approval from 180,709 voters or 84.1% and was rejected by only 34,013 or 15.8%.
The National Rifle Association backed the amendment and has pushed similar measures in other states to try to prevent any possible future attempt to ban hunting. Some say the amendment isn't necessary because there is no threat to erase hunting and fishing in the state.
