In order to buy a gun (private or through FFL), vote, etc all you have to scan the card and it will instantly run a check to see if you are eligible etc etc...
That type of thing has been nullified by states and not enforced. It's another bad, tyrannical idea.
“Experience should teach us to be most on our guard to protect liberty when the Government’s purposes are beneficent. Men born to freedom are naturally alert to repel invasion of their liberty by evil-minded rulers. The greatest dangers to liberty lurk in insidious encroachment by men of zeal, well-meaning but without understanding.” — James Madison
