Reality check: Voter ID Is Huge in Europe

While Democrats are “warning anew of racist voter ‘suppression,’ . . . democracies in Europe and elsewhere tell a different story — of the benefits of stricter voter-ID requirements after hard lessons learned,” reports John R.

The House approved two bills on Thursday that expand background checks on individuals who are seeking to purchase or transfer firearms and lengthens the review period for background checks from three days to up to 20.
