I don’t think Ladd thought this through. I don’t actually think Ladd THINKS.
In many states it’s now easier to buy a gun than to vote. Our Founders would be disgusted.
Well given that the Founders wrote a LOT of stuff on who was allowed to vote, Namely it was White Male property owners. All the later Amendments were written long after the framers of the Constitution were dead and buried.
Further Most of the Modern Gun Control laws were born in the Jim Crow South when Native Americans and Blacks were now considered people, and therefore had the right to keep and bear arms. And an armed Black Man doesn’t take kindly to being called a “Nigger”, and he can act on it! BTW there are many who believe that the US Civil War was overall an abomination in the eyes of the Original Framers who believed in a weak Federal government and strong State government.
The first Federal gun control law was the abomination the NFA in 1934. So really until then any people of any age could simply buy whatever guns and ammo they wanted to. Further they could carry those guns, and there was no such thing as a “Gun Free Zone”. And many of these people were PROHIBITED from voting.
Sounds the other way to me Ladd. The fact that it can be SO easy to vote, further there are no longer exemptions for conflict of interest (Property ownership meant you payed taxes and had commitment to the land), yet all the permits and paperwork and background checks, as well as restrictions on WHO can own guns, and WHAT guns can be owned. I don’t think the framers would take kindly to that.
But you weren’t really thinking, when you said that, were you?
**UPDATE** James O’Keef Shows how easy it is to Cheat the vote
Consider this, Ladd??
