A Missouri judge struck down the state's ban on same-sex marriage Wednesday, ruling it unconstitutional.
St. Louis Circuit Judge Rex Burlison said in his ruling, "that any same sex couple that satisfies all the requirements for marriage under Missouri law, other than being of different sexes, is legally entitled to a marriage license." (Video via KMOV)
Right after the ruling, KSDK says a handful of same-sex couples rushed to St. Louis City Hall to obtain marriage licenses. St. Louis Mayor Francis Slay and members of the American Civil Liberties Union were reportedly on hand as well. (Video via KSDK)
