So let me get this straight . . .
EVERY Republican is insisting we MUST have thorough background checks and ID of all voters or else they might vote in a way that is dangerous to freedom (for Democrats)
EVERY Republican that voted against background checks for gun purchases insists that doing so is an affront to our civil liberties and freedom itself.
It should be noted how upside down the GOP is on this, how intellectually dishonest and inconsistent Conservatives are when it comes to background checks for gun purchasers and background checks for voting Americans.
The special interests want you to buy guns and they don't want you to vote if you don't live in a demographically gerrymandered GOP district. You can have all the guns you want but you can't vote without proving who you are. And if you thought the gun lobby was powerful you can just imagine how powerful the banking lobby is.
The 2nd Amendment is NOT the amendment that guarantees our freedom. Your right to vote is that guarantee. The 1st Amendment is that guarantee. There is a reason the GOP wants to make it harder for you to vote but easier for you to buy a gun. Guns sales do not threaten an Oligarchy of Special interests. Only voting can do that.
And if you think unregulated voting is dangerous, just wait until I tell you about a woman's reproductive system.
