Constitution protects votes, but not other rights?

Billll's Idle Mind picked up on arguments by Colorado Senator Bob Bacon, D-Fort Collins that voters cannot be required to prove their identity, because that might prevent some voters from being allowed to vote.

Someone should ask him if all that ID and background checking required to exercise ones right to bear arms also fails to pass constitutional muster.

The IRS requires citizens to certify their identity when paying taxes; when seeking employment; and when opening a bank account or other credit card arrangement, so they can actively seek those that haven't paid taxes, and have the records in their possession (banking records, as of the Obama administration) to 'verify' that the tax report is 'correct'.

So much for "presumed innocent until proven guilty". So much for the "Land of the free".

Thanks, Billll.
