The Republican-controlled state Senate passed a new voter ID law – which is expected to be signed by Republican Governor Tom Corbett. Pennsylvania would become the 16th state in the nation to require voters to buy an ID to vote – a requirement that will prevent as many as five million elderly, low-income, and college student voters from voting in November, according to the Brennan Center for Justice. The new law would also cost about $4 million to implement – all to maintain one-party Republican rule in Pennsylvania.

It's time we start regulating guns like we regulate abortions.
Because it just makes sense that we regulate these individual rights in the same way.
Because the Supreme Court, in the Heller case, concluded that there is an individual right to own firearms found in the Second Amendment - just like they ruled in Roe v. Wade that there is an individual right to have an abortion found in the Fourth Amendment.
