Further tests to see how far they can push the envelope of eradicating peoples rights. A constitutional amendment? Hell, why not just shred the constitution and be done with it? Oh yeah, little by little so the sheeple get accustom to it.

JEFFERSON CITY - The Missouri Senate has given first-round approval to a proposed constitutional amendment that would allow laws requiring DNA collections from criminals to be applied retrospectively.
- And ex post facto laws are unconstitutional, forbidden by the constitution, but it's apparent those who took an oath of office to defend the constitution, meant to take an oath to destroy it, which they are doing very well.
The Missouri Constitution forbids retrospective laws that mandate new restrictions or requirements based on past actions. The prohibition contributed to a recent State Supreme Court ruling that invalidated some sex offender restrictions.
State Senator Matt Bartle (Contact) (R, Lee's Summit), says an exception needs to be allowed for collecting DNA samples from criminals.
- So how many other "exceptions" are we going to make in the future as well? You took an oath to defend the constitution, which you clearly are not doing!
"The practical effect (of the status quo) may very well be that people who've committed rapes and murders that we were able to solve by virtue of the fact that we had a DNA profiling system in place would walk free," Bartle said.
But State Senator Jolie Justus (Contact) (D, Kansas City) voted "no."
- This is a woman who is defending her oath. Thank you!
"I don't think there's any limit in the future what legislatures could add to the DNA profiling laws...and so my concern is, what if five years from now a legislature comes in and (says), 'We're going to require you to give DNA in order to get a conceal and carry permit?'" Justus said.
- Exactly, when they get a way with it now, you can bet they will push the envelope more and more!
The resolution passed on a voice vote. It needs one more vote by the full Senate before moving over to the Missouri House.
