Dr. John R. Lott Jr., one of America’s leading gun nuts, will be presenting to the fraudulent Presidential Advisory Commission on Election Integrity a plan to enact background checks for voters because apparently we need to block yet more people from voting in elections.
Makes PERFECT sense, right?
No, I didn’t think so either.
Jessica Huseman didn’t think so either since she tweeted about it:

He’s using background checks for guns that Dems have suggested to prevent massive deaths nationwide against us. If you’ve been convicted of a felony, you can’t vote in many states, that’s a pretty widely known fact. But now we apparently need to check all voters everywhere so Those People (i.e. illegal immigrants, etc. etc.) can’t vote and the Republicans can win every election.
The potential for abuse is monumental. Delays, “lost” paperwork, false disqualifications with a lengthy process to contest, and dozens of other speed bumps would prevent millions from voting. Huseman believes that Lott, a known fraud, is simply trolling to oppose background checks for guns, a process that has not been politicized and does reduce gun crime. But the right is looking for any way to forestall the inevitable demographic disaster of the old angry white racist vote dying off to be replaced with Those People. Lott’s proposal would fit right in with the GOP’s long term voter suppression schemes.
Yay for the 2017 version of Jim Crow laws!
