Jim Bovard talks about the federal pressure for states to comply with their “REAL ID” laws, which place higher standards on proving one’s identity and may require the submission of fingerprints or even DNA samples. Bovard reminds us that even if the requirements aren’t so onerous at first, these laws could easily be used as a precedent to ram through more Orwellian standards in the future. Bovard also comments on the recent rallies in Virginia against the state’s proposed gun control measures.
