Comparing rights

Daily Item

---- — I don't know how anyone survives in this day and age without some form of photo identification. However, I will concede there is probably a small percentage of people without. The opposition's argument against requiring photo ID for voting is that it will restrict or prevent this small group from exercising their constitutional right to vote. If this philosophy has merit, then one should not need an ID to purchase a firearm. Our collective rights are what makes us a free society. You cannot supress or support one without it affecting them all.
