    Voter Laws

    The ACLU is butting in again, so it prompted me to start this thread. The question is, should we just do away with current voting laws and let Non-US Citizens go ahead and vote?

    What you should do is make sure everyone has ID, then ask for it. Cart after the horse not before, is in this case.

    No. The ACLU is very hypocritical, IMHO, as they have no objection to high cost CHL/CCW permits or the requiring of the very same valid, state issued, photo ID used for alcohol, tobacco, gun or ammo purchases. If there was genuine ACLU concern expressed over all of the limitations imposed on citizens (or even illegal aliens) based on not "having access" to these IDs (or high "user fees" for constitutional rights) then I would have (a bit) more respect for this lame argument.

    I don't know if its hypocritical, because regardless if you have a CHL/CCW you can still open carry. Now I know there are exceptions like some "gun-free" cities which I think is BS.

    Where as if an ID is required you will not be allowed to vote at all if you don't have it.

    Texas is not handgun free state, since open carry is illegal in Texas, even with a concealed carry license.

    And things like this are the example I was talking about which is BS. Open carry should be legal everywhere in public (private property would be at the discretion of owner) as long as you aren't drunk, felon, etc.

    No, we should keep current federal voting laws. Voter fraud is very rare. We shouldn't make it more difficult for people to participate in elections. That's exactly what the North Carolina voter law does.

    States set the voting requirements for themselves as is outlined in the Constitution...
