    Reading comprehension. Read again.
    Gunowners need a federal ID.
    And voters can use their drivers licenses or any other ID... and not have to get a special second one that requires a wallet inspection, and use it again when they vote.
    what demented polling place doesn't ask for ID's?

    You have to have a position and then contradict that same position to be a hypocrite.

    One that lives by a double standard is a hypocrite.

    This isn't true for the majority of us who live in English-speaking countries. Are you from Syria or something?

Not one incident, but there were 650,000 registered voters who did not have photo IDs. What's the cost to the state of providing those 650,000 IDs? How many millions of hours were wasted providing them? And even then, how many people were denied their chance to vote because they weren't aware of the new law, or becaue they couldn't find, or afford to obtain the documents necessary to obtain the photo ID? And for what? Zero examples of fraud.

    The painfully obvious purpose of these laws is to reduce Democratic voter participation and that is just a fact.
    How is that? Are Dems like Vampires and you can't photograph them? if you have a valid arguement, I'll listen.

    Why would it prevent a legal voter from voting? I'm looking for a legit arguement against this here.

    I was restating a hypothetical point.
