Ward and the Constitution


A couple days ago I heard Rep. John Ward interviewed on a local radio station. He was asked about the recent veto of the gun rights bill by Gov. Dayton. Ward said he had voted for the bill and didn’t have much to say about the governor’s veto. He went on to say that he was a strong supporter of the Second Rights Amendment. Did I hear that right? My question was answered as Rep. Ward went on to repeat the words “2nd Rights Amendment” two or three more times!
