    Equal Rights?

    There are some people who say you must present a photo i.d. and undergo a vigorous background
    check, (Whatever that is?) in order to purchase a gun. Those same (obviously bigoted) people say you can cavalierly bounce right into a voting booth without providing photo i.d.. Oh the hypocrisy.
    By the way. Everyone running for political office should be forced to undergo background checks
    as part of their registration/application.
    There are people who want to pass laws requiring you to pass a class in gun proficiency before you can buy a gun. I say every politician wanting to vote on such a measure should be required to pass a class in gun proficiency before being allowed to vote. I continually read a hear about liberal congresswomen ranting
    about gun control without an inkling as to the difference in varieties of fire arms.

    • Did you NOT get the message? 'Some of us is MORE EQUAL THAN OTHERS!' And don't forget the NEW CLASS that has been added to the classless society, THE RULING POLITICIAN CLASS, that has exempted itself from any and all legal, moral, and common sense standards of decency in its rush to disassemble our two hundred development of the world's greatest democracy.

    • If it was discriminatory to blacks to require a photo ID to vote...........why is it not discriminatory to those same blacks to require a photo ID to purchase a gun?
      Ans: Blacks don't purchase legal guns. So therefore, this is discriminatory to whites.

      Obama just wants to disarm white America keeping his people with the AA advantage.
