Please cut and paste the link so it doesn't refer back to here. Poll is at the bottom left of the page. We're getting beat badly right now.

I have very unkind thoughts about people who even think such things -- much less propose such requirements.

Stupid poll question. If they're selling them legally what's the point in fingerprinting them?

We are getting beaten, but keep in mind there have only been like 300 people that have voted. We can change this poll quickly.

In-frickin'-credible. What a bunch of morons we have in .gov all over this country.

We may need another Declaration of Independence.

Good idea - if a mod reads this, could you move it?

Please remember that we want to avoid just clicking on the link. Cut and paste is the best approach.

The link has been rendered un-clickable.

That should cut down on the misfires.

Thanks, I tried to make it un-clickable but couldn't figure out how.

Alemonkey, could we just sell Omaha to Iowa or something? They really aren't good for anything are they? Tim do you want 'em?

I think the results might be (or become) skewed. It appears that after voting and closing the results window that pops up, you can click the F5 key on their home page (which refreshes the page) and vote again...FYI

Should people be fingerprinted when doing other legal things? Like going "number two" or putting on their shoes?

This is what I do. I go to bradycampaign.org and then paste it in from their site. I don't know if it registers as being from their site or not, but if it does...

Ah, guys, has anyone here ever had a Federal Firearms License? You have to be fingerprinted to get one.

If you're saying that you just paste a link in your browser window while viewing their site, it won't do anything. The link would have to be part of the Brady website to pass referrer information when you click it.

I'm of the opinion that the law should be synchronized for buying guns and voting. If I need to show government ID, sign that I'm not a felon/crazy, pay for and pass an instant background check - great as long as it is for both.

If it is an infringement on the right to vote to require ID, an actual residence in the municipality, or basic reading comprehension, than it is an infringement of the 2nd ammendment. Wherever the line is drawn, it should be consistent.

I'll bet many people on thehighroad.org site will silently vote yes to fingerprinting.

In my opinion, in order to vote, you should have to show up at the polling place with your weapon and accoutrements. You would have to show your rifle is clean and well-maintained, your ammunition pouches are full, and your qualification card is up-to-date.

Because two wrongs make a right.

What makes it wrong?

For background, I'm a County Election Commissioner, the only Republican on the Commission in a Yellow Dog Democrat county. I'd love to have positive identification for everyone who votes. It would help the dead, too. They wouldn't have to claw their way out of their graves on election day and crawl to the polls.
