Why Do Republicans want proper ID for this, but not for this?

If you listened to the NRA and its Republican puppets in Congress, you’d think that the organization represented way more than only about 3 million Americans (instead of, in reality, the financial interests of the firearm industry).

2. It is a good point.

Kind of makes NRA arguments against universal background checks look rather ridiculous.

3. they are confused I guess

being that the current background check in place for many years requiring fbi nics clearance for firearms purchases

requires

Government issued photo ID with Date of Birth and a current address (not a PO Box)


Any hesitation for anyone purchasing a firearm should be unwarranted thinking some *new* restrictive method is in place is probably points to some paranoia.

The nics system works, it just lacks data ties for background checks involving mental problems, its biggest failing.

4. Because we must defend the voting public against paper cuts.
