Skip to comments.Voter fraud commission is urged to consider using gun background-check system for voter eligibility
Posted on 09/30/2017 5:56:21 PM PDT by rogerantone1
Fueling concerns about the impartiality and seriousness of President Trumps voter fraud commission, members heard testimony Tuesday from a gun rights advocate who suggested using the background-check system for gun purchasers to determine the eligibility of Americans to vote.
John Lott, head of the gun rights advocacy group Crime Prevention Research Center, suggested such a process would ease the concerns of those worried about fraudulent voting.

WTH?? This would put the rat party out of business in 45 states. I can dig it.
How 'falsely' if the commission is still investigating?
The article is not written by Mr. Lott.
Background checks to vote?
I have no problem with this!
A lot of veterans were improperly added to the NICS and have a hard time clearing their names. The process to get off the NICS is perpetually underfunded due to Sen. Schumer. People who have had their rights wrongfully taken from them have to spend the time and money getting a court order to get their rights back.
It seems that every country in North America can do it right except America. This is because the Democrats are some of the most vile and corrupt people on the planet.
The fact that WaPo and LAT are responding to Dr Lott’s proposal: CHECKMATE.
I think if you went to a hundred average GOP voters (not GOP politicians), you’d find 95-percent would support this. I would also suggest that even around working-class Democrats...more than 70-percent would agree.
The trouble is that politicians and journalists will be the ones saying no, this is wrong.
Now, I will point out....to do a background check...you need to hit a national database, which means your data (name, address, social security number, drivers license) will have to be at some national location. If you moved from one county to another...it’ll flag in some way that you are still registered at the old county location. We’ll have to invent a mechanism that forces states and counties to deregister you. That will freak some politicians out.
The fact that we already force this upon people for weapon purchases...means it’s routinely accepted.
This is how stupid laws are written.
Lets not follow the Dims down this path
The NICS would still show them as citizens. Unless they were added as felons, they would be able to vote.
Where is the potential for abuse?
And even better, the RATs would suddenly be totally on-board with a way to clear up erroneous entries, since it would now benefit them.
Bad biased article due to LA Times and dummies nation wide. But it got their goat.
Great analogous solution from Dr Lott. And it always pisses liberals off when you use their creations from hell (national gun checks) against them.
I would be happy for starters if we could just get freaking state laws requiring photo-IDs to not be blocked!
I also think votes for national elections by definition cross state lines, the holy grail for liberals deciding the Feds can regulate something.
So ALL states need to prevent voter fraud on all national races. States can handle their own school boards but national offices cannot be picked by fraud.
All states need to make sure that all voters are voting legitimately every time they vote.
But, But they told us that all the Gun checks would not be kept more than a short time.
Now, I will point out....to do a background check...you need to hit a national database, which means your data (name, address, social security number, drivers license) will have to be at some national location. If you moved from one county to another...itll flag in some way that you are still registered at the old county location. Well have to invent a mechanism that forces states and counties to deregister you. That will freak some politicians out.
The system is almost there. States are good about requiring old driving licenses for other states to be de-registered (my word) before they give you a new one.
I think this is one way the US tracks internal migration.
