    The Second Amendment says Americans have the right to keep and bear arms.

    But the left wants government to crawl up a gun-purchaser's rectum with a magnifying glass to vet the purchaser's suitability to own a weapon.

    Several amendments to the Constitution together state that no citizen 18 or over may be denied the right to vote without due process.

    The left vehemently opposes the suggestion that voters show ID to the government in order to vote.


    Can someone explain this dichotomy to me?

    If the state ensures everyone that wants one has an ID, at no cost to them, then most have no problem with voter id.

    But that isn't what the right wants, what they want is akin to a poll tax.

    Also, if you can vote you should be able to drink. A lot of stupid laws on the books.

    You fucking retard.

    where in the constitution does it say that reasonable regulation of guns is inappropriate.

    i'd suggest you actually look at heller which specifically leaves room for such regulation.

    and the comparison is a false one as there is no problem with 'voter fraud' except in the fevered imagination of the right.. not to mention that your own people made the mistake of saying they wanted it in order to sway election results.

    but that's ok, right? :cuckoo:

    They want no such thing, but you knew that. You really should take care who you call a fucking retard. Its like watching a person call themselves name in the mirror.

    It says it right in the Second Amendment.

    "Shall NOT BE INFRINGED"....do you need help with the bigger words?

    They who, idiot boy? If you made an effort to understand the other side perhaps you wouldn't look like a freeper troll.

    Poll tax is a no no.

    If you want to require people to have an ID, the only way around it is to not charge them for it.

    Dave the typical Conservative thinks liberals salivate over the thought of regulating people even further.

    Frankly I wish people were as good at being responsible as they are at talking about how responsible they are.

    They also give illegal immigrants rights they do not deserve. Libtards are some sort of crazy.

    The James Madison Research Library and Information Center

    peaceable citizens...the early Americans demanded citizens who owned guns to be peaceable citizens. they supported disarming fools and trouble makers
