Is a same-sex marriage amendment constitutional?

This is a complex legal question that even experts are not able to answer with certainty. However, based upon court decisions to date and legal opinions that I have read, a constitutional amendment to ban same-sex marriage is likely to be found constitutional in jurisdictions where same-sex couples have never been permitted to marry. However, it is likely that such an amendment would be found unconstitutional in a jurisdiction where same-sex couples have already been permitted to marry.

How can the constituion be changed?

There are 2 ways to change the U.S. Constitution.The first way is for two thrids of both houses of Congress (the House of Representatives and the Senate) to propose a constitutional amendment. Once this happens, the proposed amendment is submitted to the states. The legislatures of 3/4 of the states must ratify the amendment. At this point, it becomes part of the constitution. The president has no official role in amendment the constitution (he doesn't have to sign the amendment for it to take effect, and can do nothing to defeat a constitutional amendment once it has passed). Of course, unofficially, presidents can use their political clout to influence public opinion one way or another, which can affect the chances of a constitutional amendment passing.The second method starts with the states, and was likely included to give states a check on overreaching federal power. The legislatures of the states apply to congress for a convention to propose amendments to the constitution. If 2/3 of the states make such applications, congress must call the convention. Once such a convention is called, and amendments are proposed, the amendment(s) must be ratified by the legislatures of 3/4 of the states. This method has never actually been used to amend the constitution, but Congress has proposed amendments in response to threats by states to call a convention, likely to retain some control over the amendment process.

Can a convicted felon get gun rights back in KY?

You'd have to consult with an attorney, but it is doubtful, because likely there is federal law that prohibit the purchase / acquisition of the firearm. The federal law is likely more stringent and carries higher penalties as well. But, to be certain a competent attorney specializing in firearm law/2nd amendment law would be your best bet.

What was the corwin amendment?

The Corwin Amendment was passed by a lame duck Congress on March 2, 1861, with the apparently futile aim to forestall the US Civil War. It proposes that no Constitutional amendment could be passed that restricted state laws on "domestic institutions" specifically the abolition of slavery. Since this was effectively done by the subsequently ratified 13th Amendment (1865), the Corwin amendment would likely be considered moot. By the time of of its passage, seven Southern states had seceded from the Union, and despite being the ones that would have benefitted from it, ignored the amendment. Only two Northern states (possibly three) ratified the amendment, and Ohio later rescinded its ratification.

The second amendment would most likely prevent the federal government from passing which law?
