Interesting symmetries

A federal judge struck down the Texas voter ID law. (She was just overridden by the 5th Circuit.) One sentence she wrote:

In her ruling last week, Gonzales Ramos, an appointee of President Barack Obama, called the law an “unconstitutional burden on the right to vote.”

I find it interesting that the majority of people who oppose voter ID laws are in turn in favor of imposing as many (unconstitutional?) burdens as possible on the constitutional right to own firearms.

It’s also been amusing to watch opponents of gun rights and opponents of abortion rights (politically generally diametrically opposite) taking their tactics out of the same chapter and book. I even wonder whether they’re learning from each other.

UPDATE: Please note that I am not implying any moral equivalence.
