    just as it has been with voter ID. The difference between say, a drivers license and a gun license is that one is a privilege and the other, at least as the current court sees it, is a right. I'll bet that will be an issue.

      just summaries of them in the media, but I'll have to check the language on whether you need the gun license to buy a gun or to own a gun. As far as I know, the courts have not found that you have a constitutional right to buying firearms, only to having them in your home (and wherever else the state allows you to take them)
