Chris Rock Was Right (“The Dangerous Lunatic Incarceration Act of 2013”)

The Other McCain ^ | December 14, 2012 | Robert Stacy McCain

“Liberals talk about banning guns as if it’s the same as banning murder and banning evil.” – Ace of Spades
“Gun-free zones are premised on a lie: that murderers will follow rules, and that people like my student are a greater danger to those around them than crazed killers. That’s an insult to honest people. Sometimes, it’s a deadly one.” – Professor Glenn Reynolds

In Arizona, a state that has a photo ID requirement, Hispanic voter turnout was the highest in the state’s history. In Georgia, African American turnout has remained high in each election after the state adopted its photo ID requirement in 2006. In Kansas, another state with a photo ID requirement, a minuscule .07 percent of voters neglected to bring their IDs to the polls and all were given provisional ballots and opportunity to provide photo identification later.
These examples reflect what is happening in every state that is taking steps to protect the integrity of elections. No voter is impeded from voting.
