The ID debate usually boils down to my other post pretty much, ease of access. In Texas for example if you don't have any photo ID you can show something like proof of address or a bank statement with your name on it, but if you have to resort to that you have a much longer approval process which again leads to people not wanting to bother with it in the first place. On the other hand, if you present your gun license that's considered ID that doesn't require extra approvals, no hassle at all.Oh, ok. Nah I've seen dozens of people (it's not a large sample size, but at the same time I don't spend heaps of time looking at people's opinions on wierd issues like this) have a problem with the ID issue. I never thought it was the whole problem, but it seems to be most of what people were talking about over the last 6 months, but I admit my perspective on this specific topic is a surface take.
Thanks for the rundown.
Who is more likely to not have photo ID in their posession? In Texas it's black people. Who is more likely to have a gun license? In Texas it's white people. So yeah it's not glaring but it impacts one demographic more than the other. People typically want anything that verifies you are who you are to make you elegible to vote with no extra hoops to jump through depending on how you prove it.
