Burdensome Requirements on Second Amendment Rights

Good point here.

If U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder is going to claim that having to verify that you are who you claim to be when you vote is an unacceptable burden (even though you have to identify yourself when you fly, write a check, or do any of a few dozen other things that virtually all Americans do at some time or another), then it should certainly be considered an “unacceptable burden” to require ID, background checks, and fees to exercise your Second Amendment right to keep and bear arms.

After all, while we know via the Ninth and Tenth Amendments to the U.S. Constitution that our rights do not have to be enumerated to be retained, at the very least it seems reasonable that if the founders went to the trouble of specifically articulating the defense of the right to keep and bear arms in the Second Amendment (while they did not articulate specific protection for the right to vote), the AG should consider many of the burdensome requirements to exercising the right to keep and bear arms totally unacceptable also.

Somehow, I can’t ever imagine AG Holder staunchly defending my right to keep and bear arms in the same manner he staunchly defends the right of some to vote anonymously, to vote while deceased, to vote while in America illegally, to vote twice, etc.
