Presidential hopeful Spartacus Booker is proposing a national gun licensing program as a cornerstone to his plan to reduce gun violence. According to reporting in USA Today, the process would be similar to applying for a passport. Licensees would need to provide fingerprints and background information as well as documentation that they have passed a firearms safety course. The FBI would perform a background check to verify the ELIGIBILITY of the individual to exercise their Constitutional Second Amendment RIGHT. After passing the FBI investigation the government would issue a license to possess a firearm.
Okay Spartacus, riddle me this. If you are willing to FORCE people to have a fingerprints and background checks performed on the CITIZENS of the United States before allowing them to have their Second Amendment Rights, why don’t EXTEND YOUR LOGIC and apply it to VOTING RIGHTS? This will prevent voter fraud and insure that all voters are qualified to determine the direction of the United States.
The process would be similar to obtaining a passport. Anyone who wants to vote would be required to provide fingerprints and background information proving their eligibility to vote in this country. They will also need to provide documentation that they understand the basics of government and the CONSTITUTION. The FBI would perform a background check to verify the ELIGIBILITY to individual to exercise their Constitutional Right to VOTE. After passing the FBI investigation the government would issue a license to vote.
Voting is an important issue as voting determines the course of OUR COUNTRY. I keep hearing the liberal left saying “Elections have consequences”. Let’s make sure that everyone who votes is LEGALLY ELIGIBLE AND QUALIFIED TO VOTE.
