    Voting Rights are Coequal to Gun Rights

    The only other fundamental right that can revoked because of misconduct is the right to vote. From drawing a comparison between these two equal boxes of liberty (the ballot box and the ammo box). We can find what laws do and do not work as well as determine what rules are inappropriate. As a result here are some if them statements showing what would be the result if similar laws were applied to both fundamental rights. I draw this conclusion because misuse of the right can be dangerous, dictators are often "elected" and "people with guns" usurp power, equally dangerous in that regard. Right meet left if these restrictions are good for one fundamental right they are good for the other. What is good for the goose is good for the gander.

    Any State or political subdivision that
    requires a fee to exercise the right to keep and bear arms must do
    the same for voting. The latter being unconstitutional under the
    twenty-fourth amendment, it shall be invalid to require a tax in
    order to exercise the right to keep and bear arms.

    Any State or political subdivision
    that requires an id beyond what the federal government requires to
    exercise the right to keep and bear arms shall be required to enforce
    law requiring the same id, both quantity and quality, on those
    seeking to exercise their right to vote, and vice versa.

    Any State or political subdivision that
    requires a waiting period in order to exercise the right to keep and
    bear arms shall be required to enforce law that require persons to
    register to vote the same amount of days before an election as they
    delay people wishing to exercise their right to keep and bear arms,
    and vice versa.

    Any State or political subdivision that
    requires a test to exercise the right to keep and bear arms shall
    require a test of equal difficulty and skill in order to vote and
    vice versa. The latter being a violation of the Voting Rights Act of
    1965, it shall be against the law to require passage of any test to
    exercise the right to keep and bear arms.

    Any State or political subdivision that
    requires that certain classes be denied the right to keep and bear
    arms shall enforce law that denies the same classes from voting and
    vice versa.

    Any State or political subdivision that
    requires that voting rights be restored under certain circumstances
    must restore that persons right to keep and bear arms and vice versa.

    Any State or political subdivision that
    allows persons be of a certain age to exercise their rights to vote
    shall enforce law that allows persons to be of the same age to
    exercise their right to keep and bear arms. Since the former is set
    at 18 years of age by the twenty-sixth amendment, it shall be invalid
    to require a higher age to exercise the right to keep and bear arms.
    Minors may exercise the right to bear arms provided their parent or
    guardian authorizes it and that person is of legal age.

    Any State or political subdivision that
    requires background checks in order to engage in transfers of arms
    between non-ffl must require potential voters to undergo a background
    check to ensure persons who wish to vote are not disqualified from
    doing so and vice versa.

    Any State or political subdivision that
    limits access to arms greater then those required by the federal
    government must prevent persons from voting for both legislative
    chambers of their state representatives, either the house or senate.
    Representation in the other chamber must not be chosen by the general
    populace. The latter being unconstitutional under the fourteenth
    amendment no greater restriction on arms is allowed.

    Any State or political subdivision that
    requires that information regarding who is exercising their right to
    keep and bear arms be made available to the public upon request shall
    make available to public people who are registered to vote and vice
    versa.

    Any State or political subdivision that
    requires that information information on what arms specific people
    bear be available to the public shall require who specific people
    voted for to be made available to the public and vice versa. The
    latter being against the law the former shall be also.

    Any State or political subdivision that
    restricts localities from operating ffl in certain location must
    place the same restrictions on polling locations and vice versa.
    Nothing in this section shall be construed as allowing ffls to
    operate on government property or disallowing polling locations from
    being operated thereon.
