Carl Meredith: How about gun ID?

How about gun ID?

I find it counterintuitive that a citizen needs to show a picture ID to vote when N.C. election boards already send out voter registration cards by mail. That’s the same reliable mail that now delivers our preferred picture ID, the driver’s license. It also makes no sense to me that we need a picture ID to vote, but a concealed carry gun permit doesn’t have a picture of the owner on it.
