Pro-Gun Legend: Why Not Background Checks for Voters?

We shudder to think about what the state of the Second Amendment would be in 2017 were it not for John Lott, Jr. His books on the “war on guns” and his Crime Prevention Research Center have been invaluable sources for the real facts about gun control and the left’s attempts to take away one of our most important freedoms. Take Lott and his important research out of the equation, and there’s no telling how much damage Obama and the rest of the anti-gun Democratic Party would have done over the last eight years.

Though we have a Second Amendment-friendly administration in the White House right now, Lott knows that we can’t afford to rest on our laurels. And it is in that spirit that he wrote his latest op-ed, which brilliantly connects the issue of background checks to another one of the left’s pet issues – the subject of “voter suppression.” In it, Lott argues that since Democrats have told us that background checks are the end-all, be-all when it comes to preventing gun violence, we should use those very same background checks…to screen American citizens for voting rights.

From the op-ed:

Background checks are required for so many things from getting a job to buying a gun. But despite legitimate concerns about voting by illegal aliens and felons, Democrats become outraged by the mention of checks for voting.

Last week, in testimony to the President’s Advisory Commission on Election Integrity, I suggested using the National Instant Criminal Background Check System (NICS) to screen for ineligible voters. Democrats have long lauded this system, calling it simple, accurate, and in complete harmony with the second amendment right to own guns. Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.) bragged that the checks are done “without in any way abridging rights.” Former Vice President Joe Biden claimed that expanding the system to cover all private transfers of guns would not be “in any way imposing on or impinging on the rights that the Second Amendment guarantees.”

The NICS checks information from the entire country and looks at more than people’s criminal histories. It also checks on citizenship status. So why not use that information to prevent ineligible people from voting?

This is a genius argument that does two things simultaneously. If taken seriously and implemented, it would go a long way towards making sure our elections are fair and legal. Two, if Democrats oppose it (and there has already been a slew of liberal hysteria over the mere proposition), it shows that their claim that background checks do not infringe on our Constitutional rights is a lie. Because if that’s true, then why would it ONLY be true when it comes to guns? The logic, it makes no sense!
