Hunting Amendment Wins In Kentucky

FRANKFORT, Ky. (AP) -- Kentucky voters have approved a measure that makes hunting and fishing a constitutional right in the state.

With 14 percent of the vote counted Tuesday night, the constitutional amendment received approval from 180,709 voters, or 84.1 percent, and was rejected by 34,013, or 15.8 percent.

The effort is backed by the National Rifle Association, which has pushed similar measures in other states to try to prevent any possible future attempt to ban hunting. Some have said the amendment isn't necessary because there's no threat to eliminate hunting or fishing rights.
