The Democratic party’s stance on guns is to have some restrictions on them. Some Republicans believe that there should be nothing hindering a citizen from buying any kind of gun, after all it is their right right?
Republicans want to put mandatory ID checks at polling stations to ensure the voter is eligible. Democrats believe that there should be nothing hindering a citizen from voting, after all it is their right. right?
Here is where the two can be related:
Not everyone should be able to buy a gun.
Not everyone should be able to vote.
If someone is not a citizen of the United States(whether they be from Canada or Nepal) or is under 18 they should not be able to vote.
If someone has broken the law in a violent crime, they have chosen to detach themselves from the laws that govern us, in the same way, they’ve detached themselves the laws that enable them to buy a firearm. These people should not be allowed to purchase arms.
Having a certificate proving you are eligible to vote and a certificate proving you are still abiding by the laws that enable you to own a firearm are not that far apart.
"But guns are a more serious matter, they can be used kill people"
While it is true guns can be used to harm or kill people. Politicians voted into office can put in policies that harm or kill people so both matters are equally serious.
These are just a few of my thoughts this Thursday.
