Voter Registration From the People That Hate Guns but Love Lists

New Jersey – -(AmmoLand.com)- This might start to seem outside of the wheelhouse coming from a publication that specializes in firearm news.

Something that everyone’s attention should be drawn to is H.R. 1: For the People Act of 2021.  What is H.R. 1?  It’s a bill that essentially automatically registers “eligible” people to vote in federal elections.  From the bill’s summary:

To expand Americans’ access to the ballot box, reduce the influence of big money in politics, strengthen ethics rules for public servants, and implement other anti-corruption measures for the purpose of fortifying our democracy, and for other purposes.

There are so many provisions of this bill that I find disagreeable that I’m not even going to list them all.  Suffice it to say I have an issue with automatic voter registration, something that New Jersey has been dealing with for several years.  Further provisions of the bill will allow people the age of 16 to be registered to vote…more from the bill’s text:

A State may not refuse to treat an individual as an eligible individual for purposes of this part on the grounds that the individual is less than 18 years of age at the time a contributing agency receives information with respect to the individual, so long as the individual is at least 16 years of age at such time. Nothing in the previous sentence may be construed to require a State to permit an individual who is under 18 years of age at the time of an election for Federal office to vote in the election.

Emphasis added on “require”.  Read that however you like.  So meanwhile in 2nd Amendment land, we have pushes to limit the sales of long guns and all firearms to persons 21 and above, no longer allowing 18 year-olds to purchase shotguns or rifles in certain jurisdictions.

But, voting at 16 is okay.

Just reading through the text is enough to make most freedom-loving persons’ blood boil.  In a country that has mass numbers of people that do in fact want voter reform, this is a slap in the face to many.  I urge everyone to read this disgusting bill in full on their own.

What probably ticked me off the most is when reading the section on what agencies are to be conspirators in this ploy.  A motor vehicle division in a particular state, which makes sense, I suppose? Unless you live in a state like New Jersey where illegal aliens are allowed to get driver’s licenses, where’s the logic there?

That’s not what bothered me though, the motor vehicle agencies, what bothered me was this being listed in the provisions as an agency that is supposed to partake:

Each State agency primarily responsible for regulating the private possession of firearms.

Ya know what, NO!  With policymakers that spit on and try to limit the Second Amendment, no, you cannot use our firearm permitting agencies.  How hypocritical can these politicians be?  As of January 4th, from the Bill’s text we have these individuals sponsoring this bill:

Mr. Sarbanes (for himself, Ms. Pelosi, and Ms. Lofgren)

If Nancy Pelosi wants to involve firearm permitting into our voter registration, I wholeheartedly accept that.  Wait?  What?  Yes, only people that pass the NICS background check should be able to register to vote.  They follow the same rules, do they not?

Further, since we were talking about motor vehicle registration agencies earlier, I say, okay, let us use them.  Provided there is a gold star on the driver’s license of the individual that is registering to vote.  They put text in the bill saying “eligible” voters.  Nancy Pelosi, you want your eligible voters?  You have them, those that have gold stars on their licenses from the Real ID act, and those that pass a NICS background check.  Otherwise, keep your hands out of our voter registration system!  And certainly don’t use our firearm permitting agencies as a puppet to continue your assault on all of our freedoms.

Take this opportunity to contact your representatives about H.R. 1 and let them know what you think about these provisions of the Bill.  Take the time to read the entirety of the text, and learn what other goodies are laced in the A #1 first bill to be introduced to the new Congress.

That the Democrats would even consider this outrageously unconstitutional bill is indicative of how they have now dropped even the veneer of having any concern for our Constitution. As was pointed out many times before and after the fraudulent election in November, the Constitution states very clearly that it is the state legislatures, and ONLY the state legislatures, which determine voting rules and regulations within each of the respective states. And it was the clear violations of that Constitutional mandate by several states leading up to the November election that Rudy Giuliani was challenging in Court (and which was ultimately… Read more »

This – THIS bill – is the final push, the last step, to driving this country straight into a shooting civil war. Worse, those DemocRat asses [correct terminology, there – the DemocRat Party icon IS, after all, a jackass!] – those waste-of-skin excuses for political leaders – have lost all contact with reality and are clinically/medically insane. They have no understanding – not an inkling – of their own personal responsibility in this mess. Unless those subhuman animals are no longer allowed out in public without a f*cking Keeper, this country (as a Constitutional Republic) will cease to exist! In… Read more »

John racist AF much?? Lol Dude you are a clown. We moving forward. Your dated thoughts of voter suppression is gonna leave you with your racist ancestors. Smh. Tell me why you don’t like the idea of making it easier for ALL people regardless of their backgrounds and racial makeup to vote. People make laws. I believe ALL people in America that are legally able to be here should be allowed to vote even criminals and especially those in jail!!! So I suggest you take your prehistoric thinking and just trash that sh!t!!

I have to ask, have you ever been convisted of a felony? I have family in law enforcement and they, along with the majority of law enforcement, are against those ‘in jial’ do not vote. Once you commit a crime against societt you have set yourself apart from that society. Once set apart from it you have forfieted certain rights. There are certai foundational rights you do not forfiet, but voting, if you actually read the Constitution, is limited, and controled by the States. THis was a primary concern addressed in the thoughts of the founders and addressed in the… Read more »

You at one time one group of people didn’t want blacks to vote. Another time they didn’t want women to vote. You abso-freaking-lutely right I think they should have the right to vote. Why? Because MAN makes law and laws can change and as an individual of the United States of America that right shouldn’t be infringed by no means period regardless of the circumstances!! Now I agree they must face their punishment but their voting right should be upheld!! Sh!t it make help us 2A folks too since may have had more experience in the past with firearms.

Pa was caught giving drivers license to illegals for over 20 years. And now passing legislation to ensure they get one. You wouldn’t need real id if the states would have followed the LAWS that were already in place. What’s it gonna be next time once they screw this system ? More tax dollars for their INCOMPETENCE & disregard for the current laws. How many forms of ID will I need to prove who I am while illegals get IDs with nothing. https://whyy.org/segments/is-pennsylvania-swarming-with-illegal-voters/

I strongly agree with objection to using agencies responsible for regulating firearms. As I understand the bill, such agencies would be REQUIRED to turn over lists of individuals on whom they have data. Being federal law would mean it preempts state laws such as the Texas law restricting dissemination any data on LTC holders. This is yet another backdoor to federal registration of gun owners. Since we are all white-supremacist terrorists, they will be justified in whatever they do with such lists. To keep their hands “clean”, I imagine that they would simply make lists public – as would HR127… Read more »
