    Does registration infringe on your right to...

    Assume that you are required to register with the government to exercise the rights included in the poll options.

    Which of these registration requirements violate your rights?

    The only one there I can see has a reasonable registration interest is voting. Only due to fraud sorts of things though.

    argument being that the act of registration violates your right to privacy? because registering a gun certainly doesn't violate your right to bear arms.

    Not sure what this is supposed to mean.

    because registering a gun certainly doesn't violate your right to bear arms.
    Its a precondition to the exercise of the right not inherent to that right.
    Thus, an infringement.

    In that, it violates the right to arms every bit as much as it violates the right to have an abortion.

    but it does not bar you from bearing arms.

    It is an infringement. And registration does violate the 4th as well.

    The constitution says the right "shall not be infringed," not "shall not be barred from..."

    Aside from the fact that "infringe" covers more than simple prohibition....same can be said for registering in order for having an abortion.

    However...
    The requirement to register DOES bar you from bearing arms until you meet that the precondition.

    The precondition is the infringement, as said precondition is not inherent to the right -- that is, something necessary in order for the right to be exercised due to the nature of the right itself.
