CALIFORNIA, Ky. (AP) - Voters across the state will cast ballots on Election Day to decide whether hunting and fishing should be a constitutional right in Kentucky.
The effort is backed by the National Rifle Association, which has pushed similar measures in 12 other states as a way to stop any possible effort in the future to ban hunting. However, some say there's no need for the amendment because there is no threat to do away with hunting or fishing rights.
Deer hunter Nick Shack of California, Ky., told The Kentucky Enquirer he favors the amendment as a way to protect a family tradition.
However, Transylvania University Political Science Director Don Dugi said the amendment, if passed, wouldn't change anything.
