If background checks on gun buyers are a good idea, why not background checks on voters?
I was thinking this EXACT same thing. To keep and bear arms is a constitutional right - while voting is NOT a constitutional right. So which one SHOULD require comprehensive background checks?
Voters should be verified. Rand Paul actually addresses this in his plan but still not strongly enough for me. I think both the voter and employer verification process are absolutely essential parts of any immigration reform. If we do not demand that be the case then we are going to find ourselves with an even bigger problem at the polls. Also we need a self sufficiency requirement that is enforced before anyone can become a citizen. Its supposed to be that way already but from what I’ve heard its hardly enforced.
