I personally know of individuals that *DID* fly without 'proper ID' before '11 September'. They were/are not a danger to society, just felt that the 'mandatory ID' laws were already too onerous. All that ceased after the Twin Towers attack. Did they become somehow more dangerous because of that incident? No, some idiot simply decided that it would be a good idea to demand it. Never mind that the hijackers had 'proper ID'. Like the anti-gun whackos, it is just a feel-good ploy to placate people by increasing the power of the government by playing on our emotions.
Incidentally, 'proper ID' also consists of two individuals who will swear that they have personal knowledge of who you are, and that you are indeed who you say you are.
Also, did you know that Public Notary's (Government-approved-document-and-'ID'-generators) are required to perform their duties for individuals without any other form of 'ID' other than their personal knowledge of them? Makes you kind of wonder about that little discrepancy in the Mandatory-ID-Is-Splendid chest thumper's rhetoric -for those of you that can still think for yourselves. Makes Me glad Claire Wolfe is no longer lurking or posting here.

Just my opinion but we have waaaay too many "laws" on the books and a whole bunch of mediocre people enforcing them.
Just think - prior to 1967 there was NO Federal law regulating the sale of guns. Makes me wonder how we survived.
