The Tennessee attorney general has opined that the state would be OK if they charged hundreds of dollars in fees and required testing for a photo ID to vote even though it is not a constitutionally protected right.
I was wrong on that.
In fact he said the opposite.
He said over and over it would be an unlawful impediment to people exercising their voting privilege granted by the state and he would not defend us in court if the state charged a penny for that ID.
But he did reverse that thinking when he respond to my questions and say it is OK for the state if they charged hundreds of dollars in fees and required testing for someone to exercise their second amendment constitutionally protected right. That sort of infringement he could get behind and defend .
A Maryville Tennessee judge has already ruled and made statements that "There is no economic sliding scale for the right to engage in constitutionally protected activities.". I wonder if there is any gun owner from that area who would like to put the AGs opinion to the test.
