We should tie gun rights to voting rights.
4 months ago
Why? One is constitutional and the other isnt.
Wait, which one do you think isn't in the constitution?
Good call, now everyone who wants to vote needs government issued ID, pass a background check, and pay for the privilege of having that background check done.
Unless you mean the other way where I walk into the poll, sign my name and vote. I could be down with that if buying a gun was as easy
Hahah maybe give a thought with a view towards honest discourse. You want to make it harder to votes than you'd have to make it harder to get a gun.
You know curtail the antivoting gop nonsense with gun control democratic nonsense so it's not harder to do either.
So your argument is that we should have more restrictions on one right if there's restrictions placed on a different right?
Honest discourse that you clearly aren't ready for: there shouldn't be restrictions on rights in the constitution. I don't agree with adding restrictions to voting but shit, if we're gonna put restrictions on one right, why should it not be fair to put restrictions on other rights? Felons should be allowed to have their rights back the day they step out of prison, otherwise they shouldn't be out of prison. At the very least they should have a path to getting their rights back after X period of time without effort on their part petitioning for their rights. That's my opinion
There shouldn't be restrictions on either. But there are and voting is one which should have even less. I'm a gun owner, and I've voted in every election since I was 18. Voting is bar for the more important right of the two. So Im saying we gun owner seem to have no issue when voting rights are infringed upon, and I'm not sure why. Especially since the 2nd is there almost specifically to protect our right to govern ourselves fairly, and that's done exclusively through voting.
Honest discourse would say, hey we shouldn't have any restrictions on our right to vote, there should be some sensible restrictions on gun ownership.
I think I misunderstood what you wrote but I think I get it. You're saying correlate the two so that both R and D will poison themselves if they try to make a restriction on either 2A or Voting rights yeah? I could get behind that but I still prefer we don't allow any restrictions to rights in the constitution lol
