If you need an ID to buy a gun, shouldn't you need an ID to vote?
2nd Amendment is a fundamental right protected by the Constitution, voting is not. ALl the Constitution says on voting is that age 18 is the minimum and that women and men have the right to vote. The rest deals with laws.
14th amendment, section 22nd Amendment is a fundamental right protected by the Constitution, voting is not. ALl the Constitution says on voting is that age 18 is the minimum and that women and men have the right to vote. The rest deals with laws.
If in order to exercise my Constitutionally protected right to own a firearm I need ID then the same should be true of the right to vote.
Pretty simple concept.
Representatives shall be apportioned among the several States according to their respective numbers, counting the whole number of persons in each State, excluding Indians not taxed. But when the right to vote at any election for the choice of electors for President and Vice President of the United States, Representatives in Congress, the Executive and Judicial officers of a State, or the members of the Legislature thereof, is denied to any of the male inhabitants of such State, being twenty-one years of age, and citizens of the United States, or in any way abridged, except for participation in rebellion, or other crime, the basis of representation therein shall be reduced in the proportion which the number of such male citizens shall bear to the whole number of male citizens twenty-one years of age in such State.
If showing an ID to vote obstructs the right to vote, having to show an ID to buy a firearm obstructs the right to bear arms.
Yes it does. He was saying the topics of ID for voting and ID for guns have nothing to do with each other. They do, that is the OT of the thread.No it doesn't. Now if you want to ask whether people should have to show they have a right to vote I am sure TDII will be glad to tell you his opinion.
